There is a very nice 1968 mustang gt 428cj coupe item #2430301132 on EHAY that has a very high rearend. I emailed the seller and he told he that he he has 215 70R 15 in the front, an 245 60R 15 in the rear, with a cal-track system in the rear to make it a liilte high up.
I like this look, but the Cal-track system , I have never heard of( Not that I know a lot) . MY CAR IS STOCK

Does anyone have this on their stang?

How much would this cost to have on a 68 with a 289 coupe ?

Thanks for looking
:)

Cal tracs are an under-rider traction bar similar to Shelby bars or Traction masters. They differ because of a pivot at the front spring eye. As the bar loads, it has an arm pivot and push down on the top of the front of the spring, giving more strength.

Now, that alone shouldnt raise the car, however, if he had tem preloaded so much that they lifted the car, it would. I'd consider hobbling the horse though, the goal is to leave the movement and under acceleration load the chassis

For a dfrag racer, they work very well, for the street and track guy, I'd go with 100 dollar under riders before 400 dollar Cal Tracs
