1960’s and early 1970’s Ford, Mercury & AMC cars came with lower control arm strut rods. These stock forged steel arms hold the lower control arm and spindle in position and are used to make alignment adjustments. While the stock strut rods are very strong, they also rely on a soft bushing that dramatically flexes under pressure allowing the lower control arm to move. That’s not good. Our Adjustable Strut Rod kits provide more adjustment for more alignment capability, particularly positive caster which aids steering. More important is that these adjustable strut rod kits make certain the lower control arm stays where it’s supposed to. Adjustment is made without disconnecting the strut rod. There are different strut rod kits to fit multiple Ford, Mercury and AMC vehicles:
Ford / Mercury Vehicles
1965 Comet, Falcon & Ranchero
1966-1971 Fairlane & Montego
1968-1971 Torino & Ranchero
1972-1982 Hornet / Spirit
1967-1971 Rebel / Rebel Machine
Each Adjustable Strut Rod kit comes powder coated and includes adjustable strut rods, custom control arm and chassis mount brackets, all Grade 8 hardware and detailed instructions. Adjustable strut rod kits should be used with our Ford and AMC front coil over conversion systems but will, in most cases, work with stock stamped lower control arms. If you plan to use these kits with stock control arms, call us before buying.
