Ford-On-Ford Hookup
Full Tilt Street Rods announces its new More Bitchin'r Ford-into-Ford lower control arms designed to eliminate the Ford oil-pan clearance nightmare. Many aftermarket Mustang II IFS lower control arms attach in front of the crossmember, which makes it necessary to space the steering rack forward in order for the arm to fit. And that, in turn, creates clearance nightmares with Ford engine oil pans. Full Tilt Street Rod's new Ford-into-Ford lower control arms eliminate clearance problems by locating the forward arm inside the crossmember. Yet, the innovative design retains the strength and stability of the strutless design. And the rack can be bolted to the front of the crossmember without spacers. Hence, oil-pan clearance is no longer an issue. Full Tilt's Ford-into-Ford lower control arms fit all aftermarket Mustang II IFS crossmembers. They're available for use with coilovers and Shock Waves. Air bag and coil-spring applications are coming soon. Full Tilt's new Ford-into-Ford lower control arms are available by the pair, including spacer blocks, gussets, new ball joints, and all necessary bolts and bushings. The lower control arms are also available as part of Full Tilt's complete Hub-to-Hub Mustang II IFS kits.
