Greetings.Tearing into my first project car--'66 Barracuda. I am looking for ideas for the suspension. I seem to have difficulty finding modern upgrades for the A-Body. For solid performance handling, does anyone here know if I can get what I need out of similar stock parts or should I plan to do some fab work?I will be building up the original 273 and adding a turbo or 2 for possibly over 700hp.
Hey Bro,I have the same problem but with a different ride. Mine is a 1964 Ford Falcon Futura. I have been checking out all the mags that I can get my hands on. Surfin the web. When I was about to give up I ran across a company called RRS. Go to youtube type RRS 3 Link Suspension and watch there videos, or just go to there website. They will send a free cd & all the info you need. On line when I put in for the cd & cat about 15 minutes later the phone rings and it's Tony from RRS in Australia. He will give you a discount if you order online. Oh one other thing don't have a heart attack when you see the prices, when they convert to the us dollar it's not to bad. Hope this helps, I'm going for the front & rear.Good LuckFxstsTwo@yahoo.com

hey, check out Firm Feel Inc. They have alot of things for making an A-body handle.BTW, the early A-bodies (63-66) had the same geometry as the newer (67-76) and most of the parts interchange. The 63-66 was narrower though so the draglink was shorter.Flaming river is making a new manual steering box the has somewhat faster ratio.
