Cut the shock towers...... Save yourself a LOT of pain... If you do a search, there are a few threads regarding this procedure along with some pictures.

hello bbf ford forum - Page 2 Empty I will look into it

Post  olschoolsteel on August 1st 2011, 3:28 pm

I spent some of the morning looking around.

I am not a lazy researcher, but i couldnt find any topics on this site about shock tower cutting or deletion. I am envisioning a tubular upper A arm with a shockmount that hangs just over the center, to put a shock down to the lower A arm, while keeping everything else stock. Then i could do away with the shock tower eccept for the motor mounts. Any body got any leads to a mfr or link to threads on this topic on this site? I posted a link from another forum but no realize i cant to that. So maybe some key words other than "shock tower" that I can read up on?

Thanks in advance!

t-bolt,
I think i saw pics of your project on the FE forum. It looks nice. I dont want to install a whole new front end just because the shocks are in the way. I have called and looked around and cant find a kit that puts the shock down inside the a-arm. I do like its simplicity and cleanliness though. Just wondering, what headers company are you using for yours. I just got the crites set in for mine and sisnce their jig is probly set for stock front ends, i am betting i will have interference with the IFS kits.

that was not my car on the Fe forum. total cost involved for mustangs, mounts a coilover on the lower control arm...too expensive for me you could go with a company called RRS from Austrailia... www.rrs-online.com as far as headers...fox body headers on the Falcon. also expensive!
