SELECTING CONTROL ARMS, SPRINGS, & SHOCKS FOR INDEPENDENT
FRONT SUSPENSION MUSTANG II CONVERSION
Upper & Lower Control Arms - Stock or Tubular - Stock Lower Arms Requires Strut Rods - Tubular Lower Arms are Normally
Strutless
Springs - Stock or Coil-Over, ( Coil-Over 8", 10" 12" or 14" long, 10" utilizes 4" stroke shock for a better ride & 12"/14" utilizes 4
1/2" Stroke for the BEST Ride. )
Shocks - Stock 2.6" stroke, Pro Stock OEM Replacement 3.3" stroke, Coil-Over 4" or 4.5" stroke ( Non Adjust, Steel, Non Adjust.
Aluminum or Adjust Aluminum )
The 10" spring & 4" stroke shock utilizes Lower Control Arms with the Coil-Over mounting 1" below stock location.
The 12" Spring & 4" Stroke Shock  utilizes Lower Control Arms with the Coil-Over Mounting 1 3/4" below stock location.
The 14" spring & 4 1/2" stroke shock utilizes Lower Control Arms with the Coil-Over mounting  2 1/2" below stock location.
A Good Rule of Thumb for the Ride Height of Shocks is Compressed Lenght Plus 60% of Stroke with the Lower Control
Arm Level.
Since the Stroke of the Shock Mustang II Shock is short the Ride Height of the Shock needs to be held pretty close to the Rule so as
not to bottom out the Stock Shock on compression or extension.
****Conversions are set-up for 50% to 60% of the Shock Stroke ( rod  showing ) with the Lower Control Arms Level.
