1966 mustang suspension upgrade
I have a 1966 mustang coupe that i am restoring. Before i get to far into this, i want everyone to know that this will be my daily driver when complete. it has no power brakes or steering. so i want to upgrade the brake to power disc(this is easy and i have already help my friends do his 65 fastback). so my question is suspension and steering. i have looked at a lot of options here and would like to get some opinions on best way to go for the money. here are the options ive been looking at please if i missing one please fill me in.
coil over- i really like this but $2500 seems alittle steep for what you get but does mount into factory location
mustang II- about the same price as coil over but this would also give me rack in pinion steering, but this would be a real job to install(cutting out shock towers, welding in new front end,ext) and ive never done it before.
lower kit by i think its (global something) dont have my magazine with me- this is cheapest opinion ive found comes with front and rear shocks new coil for front, bushings, and sway bar. might be missing a little here but again i dont have my magazine. total is under $600
i have also looked at the shelby drop that was done on 1965 GT350's- dont have a lot on this, only one article from mustang monthy
now a know that most will say mustang II to is the best, then coil over. but my question is how big of a difference are we talking about(how noticeable for almost $2000 more). im not building a track car it just a daily driver with a little extra power. i just want a good driving car that i will be happy with everyday i get in it. so im sure mustang II is best but how big a difference from just lowering it a little and putting global kit on it. but i do want to do this right the first time.
next would be steering. again mustang II has this already in kit. im pretty sure i want to go with rack in pinion but dont know which one or if i should go manual or power.
i would love some input here from people that have done this or have driven cars with the different setups. Thanks
