1960 Falcon Suspension Upgrade

Post #1 by TKulak » Sun Jan 12, 2020 12:02 pm

Hello, new to this Forum. There are probably things in the archive that will cover these questions but here they are anyway. Looking to upgrade front suspension on a 1960 Ranchero. I have Granada spindles and have done this swap on Mustang/Fairlanes in the past. Is any of the 6 cylinder stuff usable or is it best to upgrade to a different steering box? What about drag link? Are V8 Mustang control arms compatible and recommended? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Depends on what year steering gear you use. 6 cylinder parts arent strong.
