It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway, the upper control arms are installed on both the right and left side next.

Adding some stability to the truck is this optional Total Cost Involved sway bar package. The sway bar and its bushings are installed behind the rack-and-pinion on the crossmember. For those of you not familiar with a Ford setup, attention all you Chevy guys out there, the Mustang II may seem a bit different at first, but it doesn't take long to see that this newer suspension will be a great benefit to the everyday driving of this old truck.

Lastly comes the springs, shocks, and GM-style 10-inch rotors. Total Cost Involved has several different upgrades available. From rotor size, to chromed control arms and springs, and even billet shocks. We chose to use all the base components. After all, this truck is made to be a driver, not a show truck. We also chose to stick with the 10-inch rotors, as opposed to the bigger rotors, because the truck will feature OE-style 15-inch wheels. Anything bigger belongs on a Compton cruising Escalade.
