Mustang II IFS on a 37 Plymouth

Hi
I'm new to your forum and this is my first build. I'm looking for nayone who has some familiarity with putting a Mustang II front suspension of a 37 Plymouth. The frame rails are quite different than on Fords and Chevys in that there is a large hump in the rails over the axle position. I can't envision how the crossmember and motor mounts would be positioned. I'll be installing a 97 Firebird LT1 motor and electronic transmission.
Appreciate any help. Thanks

Are you talking about grafting an actual Mustang II front suspension to the 37 frame (very ugly IMO), or are you considering a Mustang II geometry IFS?

Mustang II IFS on a 37 Plymouth

Looking to purchase a Mustang II IFS setup from one of the suspension outfits like Fatman and attach to my Plymouth. I also thought of just getting the IFS kit and then getting all the components like A arms, Spindles etc separately as a possible cost saver.

I dont know what your frame looks like exactly, or the width. But I did do it on my "40 plymouth and at one time , 2 years or so I had some pic on here of it. Now the '40 I am pretty sure it differnt because it had IFs stock, and the two big humps in the frame were the spring cups. I did just graft it in, it was a fair amount of work, but it seems to be alright.However i do believe if u have the money http://www.streetrodengineering.com/...ifssubassm.htm

there is someone out there that makes a sub frame for your application, and it looks pretty good this is not it<<<<<<.I will chime back in if I can find it it has been a while since i looked. After doing the graft i would say buy the sub frame, it will cost you money but save you time to work on more exciting, less stressful things.
