Are there any kits for switching from split I beam to A arm suspension in a Mid Ford? I thought about a Crown Vic front end, but I'd have to be careful not to completely ruin my van trying to do silly stuff like that.

I'd rather save up and in a year or two have a bolt in kit if such an animal exists. There are a million of these type kits for F100, but I haven't seen any for E100.

Outside of a disc brake bracket, there is not much of an aftermarket for mid fords. Gonna have to get the welder out.

I figured that was the case.

I also started to notice that all of the bolt in kits for the F100 and also a Crown Vic front end will drop the front, which I absolutely don't want. My van is already sitting nose down ass up the way I want it. Any more and I'll be looking straight down through the windshield lol.

I'll take the low road and see what a sway bar and steering dampeners does for me.

Why would you want to change the twin I beam?


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
