I guess the distinction needs to be made between something that "works" and something that handles well. If you have driven some of the hotrods running mustang 2 suspensions you know they don't hold a candle (in general) to our stock coil overs as far as handling and ride feel. Are they workable and safe....yes in most cases but not ideal IMO4 Cam Bird said:The more I have thought about it the less I think the weight would be a big deal. I have seen 50's trucks with big blocks in them with MII anc Nova front ends under them. There is no way a T-bird/Cougar is heavier than a 50's big block truck. And guys have been putting them in that stuff for years, back when all the components used in a Mustang II front end in a street rod were stolen off a Mustang II. Any more a lot of it is just 'Mustang II style' but all the control arms are tubular and adjustable. the companies that make the Mustang II conversion kits put a pretty large amount of design work into things to get all the geometries correct to eliminate bumpsteer and all.
I think it would really be a doable thing.
