Rod & Custom Installation

1964-1970 Rack and Pinion Conversion

 

This 1966 Mustang Fastback is one of the restorations we recently finished here at CJ's. We added a 331 engine and a Rod & Custom tubular suspension kit. The Rod & Custom kit converts your Mustang to rack and pinion steering with disc brakes and removes the shock towers from your engine bay. It also improves handling and ride quality with the all new tubular A-Arm system.
