Dear Welder Series…
I purchased a Mustang 2 front end for coil overs.. I have tubular front a frames, but the bottom looks a lot bigger than the width of the lower a frame mount. I think its 7 1/2″.
I can’t see anything in the photo that shows how to make up the difference .. can you help? thanks
Brian, lower A-arms usually are supplied with a tube spacer that goes inside the crossmember to keep the crossmember plates from collapsing, and a spacer that welds to the rear side of the crossmember to make up that extra distance you refer to. A gusset supports the tube out the rear.
Welder Series has 1″ diameter tubes that are 5/8″ inside and are 3-3/8″ long. They are #21306 and cost $10.00 each. The gussets are #108111 @ $3.60. A washer goes on each side of the a-arm bushing. There should also be 1 at the front of the front bushing. I’d suggest a couple of extras just in case your spacing is slightly larger.
I hope this helps with this part of your project.
