          • Nice progress Mike. What are your plans for the front brakes? Discs or Drums? On our Vert I went with a power brake disc conversion kit from SSBB and I had alot of issues with it and I DON'T suggest using them!! They were NO help when contacted. There's better options out there. Just saying.

              Thanks. Front brakes are already done, I purchased a front power disc brake kit from OTR & it was a CSRP kit with slotted front brake rotors & Kelsey/Hayes 4 piston calipers.

              • Nice front brake setup Mike. Wish I'd went with a similar type setup in hind sight.

                  Mike,
                  What is a CSRP kit?

                      • Today I rolled the Mustang out of the garage so I could clean the paint off the rear floor pan area to get it ready to weld in the dual exhaust rear floor pan reinforcement panels. Here is a pic of the Mustang with the old rear leaf springs, & front coil springs.



                        Here is how it sits now with the 1" lowering rear mid eye rear leaf springs, 1" lowering front coil springs, & the Shelby/Arning UCA drop.
