    Blue, Is this the kit like Stacy David is doing on "Gearz TV" (Speedchannel Sat's) ? He is putting one on a '67 Cougar. He is also installing some supposed radical/oversize muscle motor - kind of secret . . . . . His kit uses coilover shocks and has the motor mounts built in to the crossmember.

    The coil overs will give you a little bit of adjustability. If it is still too low for you call up TCI and change out the drop spindles for stock one's.

    Not to bring back an old post, but I am thinking about the same kit for my Falcon. Wondering how things worked out and final ride height?

    Rod and Custom is a real nice kit. Seems to be the most complete. I just thought I would also do some checking on TCI.

    I just put one of the TCI Mll kits in a Falcon two weeks ago and here are a couple pictures after... sorry about no fenders but hope this help answer's your question about how high or low it will ride.. It didn't have the motor in it when we started but after it was installed we had lowered it over 6"...

    The springs will settle a little also. Final ride height will place the lower control arm parallel to the ground.

    It's hard to tell in this picture but the car is on its weight(17" wheels for reference to the fender).

  17. I just finished up building headers for this swap (thanks to retiredblue and Nick Licata). Here is a ground level shot of how Nick's car sits. They should fit other brands of MII swaps in the early Falcon and Mustang as well. Doug's part #D661Y

    I did their kit back in 2000 when I did my comet. I have 54,000 miles on the car since then and it is the best money I have spent on it.
     
  19. this one was a Fatman MII kit

    The car looks great, you'll have to swing it by the shop once it is done. :)

    The front end on Nick's car has settled about an inch from the picture I posted earlier in this thread. As you can see from Don's pics and these new ones.
