Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
In this installation video, Bill demonstrates how to upgrade a front
suspension in CJ's 1965 Forgotten Fastback project car. Before the upgrade,
the Forgotten Fastback's suspension was beyond poor, with two 4x4s for
springs and several loose parts.
In order to make the Fastback a Mustang with modern updates, we've
decided to install a stock-style suspension with a few performance
upgrades, which will provide a better handling experience. For springs,
upper and lower control arms, and a strut rod kit, we've chosen top-quality
products from Scott Drake.
Mustang Scott Drake Coil
These springs allow your Classic Mustang to take advantage of the
latest suspension technology and perform more like a modern sports car.
They provide a fairly stock smooth ride during normal driving, but as the
springs compress under load (primarily during braking and cornering) they
progressively become firmer to offer the handling characteristics similar
to our 600 pound performance springs.

These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original
riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and

Mustang Scott Drake Upper
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not
rebuilt, but rather all new. They're painted black and natural steel gray,
come ready to install, and include the bushings, ball joint, but with
cotter key and washers with locking nuts.
