More and more of our customers these days are straying from their classic restoration and are modifying their builds. While we all love the look of a classic Mustang, adding features such as disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and better suspension is not going to make your car safer, it's going to make it a lot more fun to drive as well. If you're looking for all the above plus a little more room under the hood, take a look at our Rod & Custom Motorsports front-end kits.

The owner of this '67 convertible has big plans for its restoration, including a late model power plant and plenty of modern necessities. The Rod & Custom front suspension was an excellent starting point. The heart of the Rod & Custom kit is this cross member here; it's going to weld to your factory frame rails by boxing them in on both sides. It includes your choice of motor mounts. For pretty much any engine you can think of, they make mounts that fit. Also includes a rack-and-pinion steering system located in the proper location to avoid bump steer, as well as everything needed to hook it up to your column.

Here we can get a better look at the rack-and-pinion assembly that's included in the Rod & Custom kit. You can see how straight the tie rod ends are making bump steer a non-issue. The kit is available in both manual or power steering; it's a same rack used on a Fox Body Mustang, making it very easy to service. All of our Rod & Custom kits are going to come with this five lug disc brake setup, including braided steel lines; it comes with tubular upper and lower control arms, the brackets for the included three quarter inch sway bar, and your choice of conventional or coil over fully adjustable shocks. If you're looking for a well-engineered front suspension plus the ability to run pretty much any engine combination you'd like take a look at our line of Rod & Custom Motorsports suspension kits.
