The next type of suspension we'd like to consider is one where the upper control arm is completely eliminated. This McPherson strut arrangement is very similar to that found on newer Mustangs, and simplicity and fewer moving/wearing parts is a main advantage. Kits are offered from several sources including Fatman Fabrications, Gateway Classic Mustangs, and Anthony Jones Engineering (AJE), which is shown here. The strut system is a bolt-in that requires a solid shock tower, but if you decide to trim the shock towers back for more room, then welding is involved. Rack-and-pinion steering is mandated with this late-model-style front suspension setup as well.
