Using stock-existing factory holes, this easy-to-install, bolt-in or weld-in IFS kit featuring ‘78-88 front-steer Impala spindles, 12-inch diameter (Impala) rotors, calipers, and balljoints will give you a 5-on-5-inch diameter bolt pattern. The stock crossmember will unbolt and is replaced with a new 2 x 4 x .188-inch wall bolt-in crossmember that holds a ’83-87 T-Bird power rack-and-pinion steering unit. Either a stock, power GM gear-box pump or GM rack pump is compatible to operate the rack. C-channel frame stiffeners, that bolt inside the frame, are also included in the kit. Modifications to the bottom of the steering column will be necessary to connect to the rack spline, or replace it with an ididit column.
The stock 64 1/2-inch front track width is narrowed to 62 1/2-inches with the new IFS kit. The kit features D.O.M. tubing upper-and-lower A-arms (1 1/4-inch dia. X .156-inch wall lower arms and a 1-inch dia. X .156-inch wall upper arm). The aluminum, adjustable coilover shocks with powder coated springs are attached to a three-position upper mount and a two-position lower mount that offers you about 4-inches of movement for the stance you like best!
Dropped spindles, custom track widths, 1-inch diameter sway bar, steering linkage kit and column are just part of the options available.
