Our project “Biting the Bullitt” 1965 Mustang will be receiving a 1030 HP 427 CI Windsor-based small block Ford.We wanted to switch to a modern suspension design for a safety and handling perspective while freeing up the engine bay so it would be much easier to service the tall deck, small block Ford.Anyone that has ever tried to stuff a tall deck engine into a first generation Mustang knows it can be painful.
The stock Mustang suspension system starts with the classic steering box and idler arm design.
The stock steering arms are far from durable and steering box suspensions typically come with a lot of steering wheel play, which can be dangerous when driving the car over bumps.
TCI manufactures all the compoents for their IFS kits in their So Cal facility.
They even build their own coilovers that come available in single or double adjustable configuration.
The next task was to get the stock suspension out of the car.
