its all how the parts are installed. the firestones with shocks will ride the best. firestone has bags on all the semi trailers and were the first brand of bags out i belive. like joe said, its all in the install. you can buy the best parts, but of you have a shitty install and they rub, theyre still going to pop. also SMC valves are the shit, parkers are good too, but someone here has managed to break em.
the same bags will work, but slam specialties will get you 2" more lockup. if you want to do a 4-link, firestones will be fine because you can put the bags on the 4-link bars to get more lift and a much better ride. the only downside, you need to do alot of cutting to the car.
THE MUSTANG II WAS A BOLT ON BUT YOU HAD TO WELD THE TOP HATS, ITS FROM TCI,THE REAR END WILL BE A 1968-1972 GM CAR, I WILL BE RUNNING A 235 WITH A SAGANAW 4 SPEED.

cool yeah those years leaf spring car should be about the right size i have used 70-77 nova and camaro rear ends for tophat frame drivetrain swaps
hope you got quality work put into installing that mustang II member by someone who is familiar with top hat frames
can't wait to see that beast finished
but yeah the best thing to do would be to go with 2600 all around if possible since you uses stock frame not sure how much clearance you have
i learned the hard way about top hat frames and went and built a new one with 2x4 steel tubes
YA THATS MINE,HEY THANKS I CAN'T WAIT BUT GOTTA STAY PATIENT! WELL THE GUY WAS TELLING ME HE CAN BUILD ME FRAME BUT SINCE I WASN'T GOIN TO BE HOPING OR ANYTHING I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD NEED IT. BUT HOPEFULLY EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. YA YOUR DOING A GOOD JOB ON THAT CHEVY YOURSELF.
Hey Homies. New to the Forum and was hoping someone might be able to throw me some advice.
I registered on the Ridetech Forum but can't post anything ... they said their IT Guys are gone for another week to fix the prob, so i brought the question here.
I'm not new to tinkering with cars...
