wow, that looks good!! how difficult was the install?

The install was easy. The only problem I had was some chinaman forget to complete the kit. One u-bolt was missing one nut. Ace doesn't carry graded fine thread 7/16 flanged nuts, they just carry 1,000,000 other types. I cruised over to the Mustang Shoppe and they only had one but it was a locker type. I ended up using the old nuts from the old U-bolts. There went another 30 min polishing them. One missing nut cost me 2 hours....other then that...easy

sounds like a good time. i love tinkerin on the suspension on the classic stangs. btw- was it just a perch that lowered it or was it done with the shackle too?

Just blocks and new u-bolts. I'm pulling them back out tomorrow and shaving 1/4" off the bottom to add back 1/4" in height. Anything to help the scraping when I hit dips.
