Modernize the front suspension on your classic 1965-1970 Mustang with this Colt 65 Suspension Kit with GM Motor Mounts from AJE Suspension. This kit comes with everything you need to add 1987-2004 spindles to your Mustang and upgrade to a late model style suspension. In addition to a more up-to-date suspension, you will have a large selection of wheels at affordable prices to improve your pony's appearance.
GM LS V8 engine swaps into Mustangs continue to grow in popularity and because of this, AJE created motor mounts to help you easily put a GM power plant into your Mustang! These mounts will also work for small and big block Chevy engines.
Colt 65 Suspension Kit Includes:
- Tubular k-member
- Front coilovers
- Caster/camber plates
- Tubular front lower control arms
- Motor mounts for GM small block, big block and LS series engines
AJE Suspension's k-member is made out of heavy duty tubular mild steel and finished with a black powder coat. The k-member is a complete bolt-in assembly which allows you to install a Fox Body rack and pinion, as well as Fox Body (1987-1993 only) or SN95 Mustang (1994-2004) spindles. All necessary mounting hardware is included with weld-on sleeves for mounting the k-member to the chassis and steering rack mounting bushings. This k-member comes with a pair of motor mounts that will accept a GM small block, big block or LS engine.
AJE Tubular K-Member Features:
- Light-weight design
- Heavy duty mild-steel construction
- Black powder-coated finish
- Power steering rack bushings
- Motor mount bushings with mounting bolts
- Weld-on sleeves for mounting the k-member to the chassis
The included pair of heavy duty, tubular front lower control arms from AJE Suspension keeps you in constant control of your Mustang. The control arms give your pony a reduction in overall weight plus improved suspension geometry. Each control arm is made from premium quality tubular steel for strength and finished with a black powder coat for long lasting good looks and corrosion resistance. AJE includes polyurethane bushings with every control arm to provide increased responsiveness with minimum noise.
AJE Tubular Lower Control Arm Features:
- Light-weight design
- Heavy duty tubular steel construction
- Black powder-coated finish
- Polyurethane bushings
- Caster and camber adjustment
The supplied coilovers feature an adjustable collar to adjust ride height and spring preload. Caster/camber plates bolt directly to the shock towers while offering adjustment to dial-in your alignment. AJE's caster/camber plates will allow you to properly set up the alignment so you can take full advantage of the performance offered by late model Mustang suspension.
This suspension kit is available with your choice of three spring strengths. The 150lb springs are the softest set of springs available from AJE Suspension which can be used on your 1965-1970 Mustang. This pair is intended to be used by Mustang drivers who prefer to keep their machine moving in a straight line as opposed to maneuvering through the turns. Those who wish to carve the corners should choose the 200lb springs. The stiffer spring rate will increase handling but lack performance at the drag strip. If you're looking for a happy medium between these two spring rates, the 175lb springs are the perfect choice. They offer great performance in a straight line and through the curves. This pair will give you great performance in a daily driver that is going to be driven by an enthusiastic owner.
Front Coilover Includes/Features:
- 150lb, 175lb, or 200lb coil springs to provide great straight line acceleration or increased cornering
- Two coilover shocks for improved suspension and ride quality
- Two caster/camber plates for secure shock and spring fitment as well as alignment adjustment
- Hardware for installation
Finishing off the Colt 65 suspension kit is a pair of motor mounts ready for your GM small block, big block or LS series engine. The mounts are solid and they bolt directly to the engine and k-member for a secure fit. A single bolt attaches the mount to the k-member and the bolt runs through a cylindrical bushing. AJE's mounts will help put your Mustang's power to the ground. However, the use of these solid motor mounts may cause some additional engine vibration due to the lack of flex in the mounts.
Please Note: Cutting the original motor mounts and lower control arm mounts is necessary to install this tubular k-member into any 1965-1970 Mustang. Also, if using SN95 spindles a 3/8" spacer is included. Without this spacer, the nut will bottom out on the ball joint's threads before it properly tightens the tapered stud to the spindle.
*This kit requires 1987-2004 spindles and brakes, an aftermarket steering shaft kit and a 1979-1993 rack and pinion.
*A rear sump oil pan and rear sump pickup tube are required for proper installation.
