kso A freind's Dodge p.u. had a Mustang II setup and it worked great...but I didn't quite trust it. It did look tiny. With the X-body stuff already in there, and theoretically a good choice, I might try to work out it's problems instead.

What did they do wrong?

NEW INTERIORS They make a lot of kit's for that truck that is far for being to light... The one I got from Art Morrison's for my 41 willys. That front end looked strong enough to put under a bus...

I wouldn't trust a stock Mustang II under it..

jandre That's what he was saying. Maybe he didn't have one built heavy enough for his pickup. thanks for the information. I didn't want to put one on my 57 and then have a tough time getting replacement parts...

A buddy used the mustang II kit, but he says it is too light for the truck. Also on those kits, when you need rotors or other parts, do you have to get specialty parts?
What does your buddy mean by "too light"? As in not designed for the heavier vehicles? There are manufacturers that use heavy duty arms, crossmembers, ball joints, brakes etc specifically for the heavier pickups when using MII spindle based kits. Most of the replacement parts are available over the counter.
