yes heidts make tubular lower arms for coils i had a pair of stainless polished lower tubular arms for coils but i sold them

http://www.heidts.com/heip15.htm


also look into total cost involved they make some awesome mustang II ifs for all cars


http://www.totalcostinvolved.com

i would suggest looking around and buying the parts from different places and peice the mustang II ifs together

there are alot of places that sell certain parts cheaper than others

unless you want the stainless arms and all that then just go for the heidts ifs

the uppers you can just adjust the mountint location those set ups allow you to do that

yeah that link i showed you has the lowers for coils

but there are endless possibilities for that
if they didn't have coil lowers

power balls and accums or coil over set up

flipped cylinders

are you gonna be hopping in it or just lay it down and flex it up the blvd
