What do staggered rear shocks mean?
#31
Your right Don, its pg. 12. I wish I had computer knowledge to make it easier.

It starts under heading REAR SUSPENSION

Paragraph starting optional CS
to Line 5
351 4V and up.
The next sentence goes as
The CS is standard the mach 1 Boss 351 429 CJ CJ-J engines

It's confusing the facts but, as stated (351 4V & up)
cancels that all Mach's get standard CS.
It's Marketing BS
I'm glad hemi posted the 71 illustrated facts. Its much more detailed
than my 72 version.
No Marty report for my 72, because Marty can't tell me anything that I already don't know
I do have reports on Mach's that I sent to junk heaven years ago.

I'll admit that the 71 entry is written poorly, and can be confusing. They finally cleared it up in '73 - seems pretty straightforward to me. Notice the use of "again" in regards to the 351-4V engines, which implies it is the same stuff as last year, '72 - which was the same as '71. They reworded it because the 71 & 72 books were written clumsily and you weren't quite sure what you were getting.

I've posted extensively trying to clear this up for you - MPC spring charts, fact book entries etc. All you've posted is your insistence that you're right and everyone else is wrong. You can say it's "marketing BS", but it's not. The spring and shock charts don't lie. There's not a listing in any of the MPC for a "63R" under "standard springs", only Heavy duty (CS) just like the '73 charts I posted. It's the same for 71 & 72. If you look through the Marti reports section, you will not find a report on a Mach that lists "Competition Suspension" as an option regardless of engine option- because it was part of the package. You will find coupes, convertibles and sportsroofs with CS listed as an option, but not a Mach.

red351, have watched this discussion about your misunderstanding concerning  the proper applications of the Competition Suspension for the past couple of days. You can rest assured that the info Hemikiller and Don C have given you is as good as it gets. That's why so many people come here from other sites because of the correct info, knowledge and experience here.
I grew up in a Ford family and have been around these type vehicles my entire life. We've had just about every year mustang built from 1966 through a 2019 my brother has on order. I've dealt with Ford Motor Company both directly and at the dealer level for almost 40 years. So I have a pretty good handle on what is and is not on these cars. But....if there was something I did not know or understand or needed further info or clarification on, Hemikiller and Don C would be my first stop. There is a reason Hemikiller is a Tech Advisor (and Don C should be). They have extensive knowledge and experience and would never steer you wrong. And that....you can take to the bank!!   Smile
