well after a short detour (4 years) I am back to work on my 68 shelby conv. clone & am back looking into mustang Ii suspension kits. I have lost all my previously researched material & need to get an idea on who has the best kit for the least money.
any & all info would be helpful past experiences, customer service, bad points, good points.

May be it's just me, but that doesn't look like a '68. But it is a sweet looking car.

Just my $0.02, but I wouldn't put an M-II front end in. You'll get much better performance out of a modified stock system like TCP or Global West or even a Global West coil over system.

Search for heidt for older than two years and you find some threads that discuss cracking with heidt crossmember.

I just finished a MII conversion for a friend's truck this summer. I would say they are fine for a cruiser/daily driver, but i would not do it for serious track work. The control arms are very short, so the roll center moves around a lot when cornering.

As for the best kits, I am not a fan of Heidts. The upper control arm is attached to the cross member with 2 vertical bolts. It has a problem with these bolts slipping in hard cornering, which causes the camber to change. I used a Street Rod Engineering kit for the conversion I did. They use adjustable control arms to set camber, so there is no chance of slipping. The control arms look more like a TCP. The Street Rod kit fit well in a 56 Chevy truck that is was built for, and the quality of the welding and workmanship was very good.

No problems, great support. Now, mind you, the car still ain't done. But you did'nt ask that, did you.... never mind, I'm rambling again....

I'm thrilled with mine from Rod & Custom (http://www.rcmotorsports.net/). Willie Osborne was great to work with and it had all parts and great instructions included.
