The frame is bolted in place, and care is taken to ensure it goes in squarely.
Inserts are welded into the frame rails to add strength and to prevent the AlumaFrame mounting from crushing the stamped rails.
Lower control arm travel limiters and bump stops are welded to the outsides of the frame rails.
The system uses tubular upper and lower control arms rather than the stamped steel units originally used on the Mustang. The lower arms are true “A” arms rather than the strut-rod design, which allow for more precise articulation of the suspension system. It also uses modern spindles, coil-over springs & shocks, articulated sway bar ends, and a quick ratio rack and pinion steering system.
