Okay...  here we go again;
1st pic;  rearend with tire at ride height after fabricating new upper and lower control arm locations for much better "instant centers".

2nd pic;  top view of same showing TeamZ double adjustable uppers and single lowers with my fabricated frames

3rd pic;  same as 1st pic but different angle

4th pic;  same as 3rd pic but different angle

5th pic;  same as 2nd pic but from inside the trunk area (close up)

6th pic;  shows the upper control arms relocated 2" higher than stock (notice the bolt below the control arm)

7th pic;  shows the lower control arms relocated 2" higher than stock (notice again the bolt below the control arm)

8th pic;  shows the lower control arm factory location of the bolt, and my new position.  I made some oval caps to weld and cover the old holes and bring back some strength in that area of the frame.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

hey dana ,nice work.     question even for a road race set up, the upper control arm gets mounted that high on the frame  .     i though it would go the other way.    joe

Maybe, gtcoupe (Doug)/Dave has a doodad that rolls the lip.
The tire clears the fender by more than an 1/8" once the axles are connected to a differential.

I'm attempting to achieve the most anti-squat as possible.  Most of the load will be when exiting a corner and accelerating.  Having my uppers and lowers intersect further forward and higher should keep my chassis from squating/pulling the rearend/axles upward.

Howzit Jason?

I'm cleaning up the fenders, getting it ready for the TeamZ K-member mock-up.

I'm staring at this stuff, and I'm thinking adapting a true upper/lower control arm, coil-over setup.
I can either fabricate it all, or buy the C5 stuff but not save any money or time since I'll have to fabricate a spindle bearing setup for the 5lug ford.

Dana, could you please provide a ''real world'' measured back space # in inches at you convenience on those wheels, as I'm considering a staggered set for my cougar. The fox/cougar has longer axles and can tolerate more back space. That project of yours is coming together very nicely...just keep it going slacker! Grin    Thanks Bud,   Mark

No, nothing new, just thinking of accomplishing something Ford should have done long ago to the Mustang.
