Crown Vic swap & lowering link dump

So I've been researching & researching & researching the next major step on my F100 project and I thought that maybe some others might be able to benefit from my efforts. I have compiled a list of build threads, parts options, & magazine articles that add up to a plethora of information for anyone considering a Crown Vic IFS swap & a rear axle drop on their F100 (as well as a few other topics that might be of interest).

Specifically I focused on the 67-72 but I'm sure a lot of this information will help with other models as well. I apologize if this is a bit overwhelming but I'm sure you'll find at least 1 or 2 helpful bits of information in these links.

I will continue to update this thread as I gather more links & info. Also, feel free to add any additional links you think are helpful & I'll add them to this 1st post if I think they apply.

PLEASE! ONLY REPLY TO THIS THREAD WITH LINKS & HELPFUL INFO TO KEEP IT FROM GETTING TOO LONG.

Found a CV IFS & Mark VIII IRS build thread for an older F100 that doesn't directly relate to our 67-72s but it does provide some additional ideas on how to use air ride suspensions that y'all might find helpful.
