TCP Front Coil-Over Conversion Installed on My 73!
#1
I finally got to the actual install part after spending the last few weekends cleaning, scraping, de-greasing and painting!
Here's a photo of the finished install of the Total Control Products conversion kit...amazing stuff!
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO I DID ON THE INSTALL!

Will do! It was the easiest major install I've ever done. The words "bolt right in" actually apply and I don't even need the car on the ground to know it will out-perform my expectations... but it will make me crazy to stare at this gorgeous stuff until then!

Autoedit,

How long before you are on the road? We have seen these wonderful upgrades to the front suspension to the mustangs and yours has the wow, I want one factor!! What would be good to see is more of the on the road feedback after the upgrade. How does it drive? Is there a lot more noise/vibration feedback from the strut rods,solid mounted upper control arms and upgraded suspension verses the factory setup? It it about the same or less? I searched the Suspension, Handling, Brakes, Wheels and Tires forum and did not find much on the feedback of the driving experience after the upgrade. Please let us know and or respond back to your thread here on how the driving experience is.

Thanks,

Like the way it looks. but I have a suggestion. If you will turn the shock around 180 degrees, the adjustment knobs will be accessible with the wheels on.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I will absolutely shoot a bunch of video of this vehicle in action with the new parts...the plan is to show the direct comparison from the stock handling to the new stuff. Then I want to show the different setups to make it a good commuter/ canyon carver and then transition to track day/ auto cross type activities. I do have about 6 months of work left on the car and this pesky chore of finding an engine but I most definitely will keep you guys up to date with the performance upgrades!
This stuff just looks so solid and correct.

Nice..Front coil-over conversion is the only way to fly IMHO
I looked long & hard at the TCP setup too..But ended up with the SOT setup..I liked the fact I could get matched leafs & shocks FOR the rear so this way I have a complete balanced package..Very important..I also prefer spending my money with small independent business...When I have questions or need advice I speak right to the owner designer..Not corporate..You should see what TCP recommends for the rear buy it install it IF you want the full benfit of the front conversion..I have driven mine but Not much since I still need to do the alignment but all I can say is WOW..car drives like a 2014 not a 1972..NO COMPARISON.
