How To Suspension Detail on '71-'73 Mustangs
Lazarus Gets A New-Looking Suspension
Detailing is an art form in which most anyone can express themselves. All it really takes is some paint and someone to steer you toward what to use for color. We have gone out, bought the colors, and now know what closely mimics the original finishes. Suffice it to say, the cabinet that houses our paint collection is stuffed full of grays, silvers, and blacks, not to mention reds, yellows, and other trifling colors.
We proceed with the detailing of our front suspension as with everything else. If there wasn't a mark on the part, we didn't put one it. Once again, as in the article "How To Detail and Assemble Front Disc Brakes" (Jan. 2000, p. 66), we used parts from many different sources. National Parts Depot supplied some of our suspension, AutoKrafters gave us the tie-rod boots, Inline Tube provided us with the correct brake lines, while AMK's excellent body-bolt kit helped us return our project to the factory look. For our new front springs, we turned to Eaton Detroit Spring. Now that the car is a rolling chassis again, we can move on to the color sanding, and buffing of the car.
