Default Shelby Drop on a 65-66

Hey Guys!

Looking to do a shelby drop on my 66. I've got the template and instructions but want to know if anyone who has done it, do you have the ACTUAL pictures of your car? i.e. pictures where you drilled the hole, comparing where the old mount to the new mount of the UCA. Thanks Guys!

SD, go to the website below and it shows an excellant picture of the holes in the car for the 1" drop.

DazeCars, Shelby Drop, Klaus Arning drop, upper control arm drop, Falcon, Mustang, Cougar 60-70


The one important thing I should suggest is that if you do not have the special sheet metal type drill bit to drill the hole, go to harbour freight and buy the step drill set. It will make for a very easy, clean and round hole when drilled compared to a common twist drill which will leave the most irregular shaped, offset, out of place hole you can possible create.

its well worht the $10 for the step drill set.

Yea. No doubt RF. Thanks for looking out. I"m assuming the top holes are where the UCA goes into before the shelby drop?

Yes, thats correct. the top two holes are the original UCA mounting holes. The ones shown 1" below and set slightly to the rear are the new ones. This is showing a 1965 - 66 mustang UCA drop. the 67 - 68 comes directly down and does not set back towards the rear like with the 65 - 66.
