We have done many MII ifs units into AD trucks and learned quickly that there is a huge difference between engineered ones and ones built just to sell. Never use the lower control arm type anymore but use the lower A-frame type. If you have a Port-0-Power get a "duckbill" attachment and spread the channel a bit. When you put the large bolt back in that the control arm pivots on it will draw the channel tight against the bushing.

A shade tree method for those who don't have a Porto-Power is a piece of all-thread rod and a couple of nuts. Push the flanges apart far enough to get the bushing to fit, and then tighten things down.

Jerry, Doc - that's why I bought my MII IFS Kit from Fatman Fabrications right here in North Carolina, built by Americans! Had no problems at all with the kit. And if I did, their technicians are only a phone call away.

A lower control arm? Do you have a Camaro/Nova sub or clip for a front suspension?

Punctuation is very important in written or typed communication.


Age 68 is not too late to start hot rodding , right?
