Subject: Clip for my 52 F-1

I am looking to put a clip on my 52 and am looking for suggestions.
Escentially I want the IFS, disk brakes and steering system (front axle is
gone). I've been told that a volaire clip works good. I know mustang ii
would also work. However, I want something with more beef. The motor I
want to put in it is a 350 Vortec with EFI and overdrive tranny. I hear the
mustang ii rack wears out prematurely with all that weight.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what might work best??

Regards,

The rack won't wear out because it only turns the wheels. If you put
on a clip you have a better chance of messing up the alignment and you
have to cut and weld the frame. I have heard that front clips are
illegal in British Columbia. So you wouldn't be able to drive it
there with out caution. Your truck with the 350 is lighter than the
mustang front end because you have to cut the springs to get the
proper ride hight you want. There is an article at
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.classic truckshop. com/ about clips vs the mustang ifs. Hope
this helps.

Randall , Look into a torino clip, mine is a 1975 had big discs and is
designed to take either a 302 or a 351. I have a 91 EFI 5.0 in my 54 and it
makes for a nice fit. Cliff.

for the fella with a 46 that wanted to update the suspension, you can buy
any number of bolt on or weld on mustang II ifs kits or you can do it the
old way and go get a 74-78 mustang II and cut and weld away. if you are not
an experienced welder eother get help or get the bolt on kit. any 9 "ford
rear end 57-early eighties will work. junkyard price $50-150 use the leafs
too. these rears were in all passengers cars and trucks. trucks have higher
gera ratios. cars good gas milage but not much tire burning. get a copy of
Street Rodder Mag. all the parts are there. good luck.
