When it comes to hot rods, Heidts Hot Rods & Muscle Car Parts is a great resource for upgrades for an existing car or new project. Fat Fender Fords are a staple in the hot rod world, but upgrading the original suspension is absolute must. Heidts offers their SUPERIDE II IFS System for owners of 1935-40 Fords as well as 1941-48 Fords.
Independent front suspension system provides these iconic cars with the increased handling and smooth ride found in modern vehicles. This kit is not a Mustang II Frankenstein conglomeration, the only Mustang II component in the entire system is a set of spindles. The days of going to the junkyard or scouring the Recycler, for a humble and often unloved Mustang II are gone; the majority of these cars have been scavenged or destroyed, but there is a certain segment of the population that has an affinity for these machines.
Heidts IFS allows the user to incorporate the use of a front mount rack and pinion unit. Along with aforementioned benefits, the upper control arms feature threaded adjustments and will not back off thus causing alignment issue regardless of the road conditions. According to Heidts, ” ‘Smooth’ describes the ride: very low and highly steerable with no bumpsteer and built-in anti-dive.” As an added incentive Heidts is offering a free Power Rack upgrade and free swaybar with the purchase with the purchase of IFS system.
