Arrow 1971 Mustang Mach 1 suspension upgrade

Hello, I am not having any problems finding the original part to rebuilt the front suspension, but i would really like to upgrade it. I have found plenty of Pro Series Suspension kits for 79 and up. Can anyone give me any sugestions? please help.

John is the man. I'd go with a set of 620# lowering springs, KYB GR2 shocks, 1.125" front sway bar, and roller spring perches from Opentracker. A set of adjustable strut rods would also make a difference.

You could also go full Global West with coilovers, but that's overkill

66 coupe 5.0/T5, home-brewed power 4 wheel disc setup, 350hp+, looks like it belongs in 1968

Air ride can be done in the front real easy the rear will take a little welding.A kit like this Air Ride youll have to widen the center piece.
