Suspension Kit
#1
I am really bummed out right now. I just went to Mustang Depots website to order my suspension kit. I got into the cart to pay and read they had permanently closed their doors. Does anyone sell suspension kits that can be upgraded and such like theirs? I am ready to purchase new suspension components for my sons 73 Mach 1.  I appreciate any help that can be given.

Check with Don at OMS. Just a heads up. The kits are not all they seem. I purchased my components individually.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

OMS is Ohio Mustang?

Rock Auto, build your own "kit". I've had mixed results with suspension parts kits from Mustang vendors.

If you want performance suspension components, talk to Street of Track or Opentracker Racing.

OMS is Ohio Mustang Yes. Like I said I built my own kit using mostly MOOG parts from Rock Auto.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

@ 73 Pony, yea, wish I'd done that instead of buying a "kit" from a vendor. Scott Drake junk basically. The coil springs they sold with it were NOT correct by a long shot. Buy springs from Eaton and be done with it. I actually reused my front coils as they were still good and in spec.
On the rears leaf springs, I made the same mistake basically. I bought Grab-A-Trak 4 1/2 leaf 175lb only to find the arc is too great and I had to fit 1" lowering block until they settled, which they have not done after two years. I'm currently in process of potentially ordering custom spring from Eaton, IF they'll make them with 4 1/2 leaves.
Geoff.

None of my stuff is Scott Drake whistling whistling whistling

Moog is made in 16 different countries.

EDIT ... I have to correct myself the small rubber sway bar bushings and sway bar end links are in a Drake package.
All other parts are from ACP
Sorry Randy I touched his package ... don't judge me

Please be aware of the potential problems if you should happen to use polyurethane bushings on the strut rods. Its a really bad idea as they have been shown to break during use. I believe I read that they do not flex enough during use. Others will clarify I hope. Ed Raver

I ordered all of my suspension components separately from Rock Auto as well.

Good luck on the search, OMS does have great parts and service and highly recommend them if you go with the complete kit .
