I have a 1974 triumph spitfire with a sbc, it has a frame width of 19" and a track width of 49.5", i would like to install your mustang 2 crossmember do you see any reason why your 56" would not work if I narrow it?
Dear Welder Series…
I am restoring a 1948 Chevy pickup. I was inspired by the guys in Trucks. I want to upgrade the suspension but I am not sure what kit I need to order. Can you help me? I would like to get a complete front suspension kit.
Our 56″ kits are the right width for this truck, Jesse. We sell only the crossmember. To get a hub-to-hub kit, check with our dealers at:
Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.
I've got a customer that needs a Mustang II setup that is narrower than 56". He has channeled his front sheetmetal to the point that the tires hit the fenders on turning.
My second question is do you think I will encounter any clearance problems with the spring mounts and narrower A frames?
Dear Welder Series...
I am interested in your weld-it series x-member, my question is can it be flipped around to create a rear steer x-member?
I'm looking at your mustang II crossmember kit, and I'm
wondering if it would be appropriate for a 54 Chevy that I
want to bag and have lay on the ground.
I just received an email from Grant Schwartz (say "shh-warts") of Schwartz Welding with some pictures of a Welder Series universal sway bar being used in a Mustang II application.
My question is: How do I determine how high/low to mount the crossmember to get my desired ride height?
Trucks!TV now has an article in the Powerblock magazine on installing our MII crossmember.
I am installing your Mustang II to a frame which I will build to. In other words I have no forward frame to modify. How should I build my frame?

I’ve added a table which tells you what track width Mustang II kits will work best on which vehicles. The list will be updated as I get time to go through the thousands of emails asking “what track width should I use on my ________?”

I specifically wanted to know if you have crossmember kits for 65 Mustang cars?
Here's a great example of what it takes to install a Mustang II crossmember in frames where the rails are too high, too thick, or just not nice to work with.
