I just finished doing the shelby drop, and cutting the front springs on my 1970 Mach 1. I had shims on the control arms. I noticed, after reading some threads on this forum, that 70's wasn't supposed to be shimed. I'd appreciate any information on this subject. Also if there is anybody in the Okla. City area, that knows of a allignment shop in this area, that's good on muatangs, please let me know. Thanks Jim.

It may be that your shock towers have sagged inward, so a previous alignment guy needed to use shims to get the settings he wanted when he ran out of adjustment on the eccentrics and strut rods. If so a Port-A-Power and an export brace will probably fix it. Or maybe it just had a very aggressive alignment (i.e. a lot of caster) that couldn't be achieved with the regular adjustments.

Make sure you find an alignment shop that will align to modern specs, not the factory ones.

Good luck,
MrFreeze

When you do this, put the high-quality export brace on your car . Shoulda been standard equipment.
