My idea was just to move the leaf springs away for more wheel space, I was told that if I mounted the 4 link, then I could get a 12" weidth wheel in back.. :-)

 

Your not getting a 12" wheel width back there with out installing new or widening the inner wheel house notching the rear frame rails..shortening the rear axle

 

i have a stock length axle, widened wheel wells and notched frame. i fit 15x12's in there.

like i said, it works perfect on the street, the car feels much more direct and responsive, when you make a turn, the car response right away, no more leafsprings and bushings that compress and have to settle first,.. so much better,

 

i had the links made , as well as all the brackets, had them lasercut, i ended up with QA1 coil-over shocks, the comp. eng. ones are very cheap and 1 broke while adjusting it..

 

i think i spend around 600-800 dollars on it total, i did the work myself..

 

cheers

I visited my friend as promised. I’ve got to disappoint you, this mach use to operate with 32 valve Modular, but now there are SOHC 281 cid with twin turbos though. Turbos were mounted behind the engine and the wastegate pipes are routed to the front wheel wells. Engine is stock factory engine and it does not produce enough exhaustgas to make the turbos operate – too big exhaust side on turbos or too small engine. Turbos will be modified for smaller exhaust side in few months. Once the summer gets here the owner will test how far will the stock 281 cid survive with some boost and when it explodes he’ll start to plan a new aftermarket block 32 valve Modular and with the turbos ofcourse.

 

Notice the nice rake and the modern positive offset wheels due to newer XR-7 mercury suspension.

Notice the shock towers, those are the Mercury's OEM towers cut out and welded to this Mach 1.

Transmission is out of the owners ex-drag Pinto – you can see the scattershield above the C4. Plus you can spot the drivers side turbo.

There are stuff stored under the car for the winter time, but you get the picture from the suspension.

Here you can see the rear wheels, lots of positive ET, I mean you can use the new Mustang wheels for example with the XR-7 axles&suspension.

You think the front is too low, well it’s got an air suspension at front - now how handy is that. This Mach 1 is highly modified and the owner has done all the work himself.
