02 Fatman Fabrications Independent Front Suspension For 1965 1970 Ford MustangsInstalling a physically large engine into the ’65-70 Mustang unibody structure with its shock towers intruding into the engine bay has always been difficult. Fatman Fabrications now offers a solution.

The Coyote engines are even harder to fit due to the extreme width across the valve covers. After years of study and thought, Fatman Fabrications has designed a totally bolt-in independent front suspension kit that does just that. A ¼-inch steel plate is bolted to the subrails from the radiator back to the floorboards to accomplish the reinforcement. Then Fatman’s proven Mustang II–based independent front suspension systems become a bolt-in option. Front diagonal braces and a full suspension crossmember finish the fully braced assembly. Filler plates for the removed shock towers are supplied, along with tubular control arms, Ridetech premium coilovers, disc brakes, power steering, and anti sway bar, with bolt-on engine mounts for the Coyote, Windsor, and FE-series engines available.
