I am involved in restomodding my 1970 Mach I. For the front suspension, I am not sure which route that I want to take. The two options I am considering are as follows:

1) Stock configuration, using Opentracker rollerized components or the Global West Negative Roll A-arms, with a rear steer rack and pinion.

2) Use a weld-in Mustang II front suspension kit from one of the aftermarket companies that offer them. Convert to a front steer rack and pinion.

Also, my questions are what brakes are available and what size and offset wheels/tires are you running?

I would like to hear from anyone who has completed either modification.

Not a fan of Mustang II suspensions.
If drag racing is your thing its a reasonable route to take, but I prefer the road less traved. Especially roads with lots of twisties.


For this my Opentracker based suspension does an excellent job. Even in autocross events my '66 does pretty darn good. Amazing what a few roller parts can do for these cars.

Open Tracker with the 70 suspension. Best way to go and it's already installed.
