1969 ranchero IFS please help

I'm trying to find an independent front suspension for my fathers 1969 Ford Ranchero. He loves his car more than me. We joke that he will be buried in that car someday. I'm trying to find a company that makes either bolt in or weld in independent front suspensions for his Ranchero. He has a bored out 460, and we cant fit headers in with the factory shock towers. He has done more for me over the years than I can count, and all I want to do is surprise him with an ifs that will fit his 69 Ranchero. If you know of any company who builds them please let me know. Thanks for any information that could help.

Rod & Custom Motorsports show a listing for up to 71 Fairlanes.
That should work, shouldn't it?

Good guys to work with.

I've installed two of there kits so far.

Have you talked to the guys at TCI? They offer kits for 1969 Mustangs and 1965 Rancheros, neither of which will probably fit. But they have some language on the website about custom kits being available as well.

There are headers that will fit with the factory shock towers. Might be easier than cutting/welding in a entire new front end.

Take a look at what Crites has to offer.
