Hi guys,
Do I have to drop the drag link to change the oil pan in my '69 mustang? Any helpful hints to doing this the easy way?

Jim,
If my memory serves me right I think you can just remove the cross member and leave the steering linkage intact.

On my 67, I only had to remove the sway bar and crossmember to remove the oil pan. You should not need to remove any steering parts.

you should only have to drop the crossmember. be happy you dont have a 70 falcon. no problem with steering linkage(rear steer car like the mustang) but fixed crossmember. had to jack the engine up to get the pan out.

I have to jack up the engine in my '72 to change pan, but that's not a big deal.
