ive got a guy with a 67 6 cylnder car that wants me to do a v8 swap ive never looked at the suspension on a 67 6 cyl is the linkage for the steering diff like the 65's were? ive got a whole v8 sus but cant get him to change everything. oh and the reason im asking is that he lives bout a hour and a half away and i havent seen the car and he wants a price trying not to leave any parts out that ill have to change thanks and sorry for being so long

Josh, you really do not have to change any of the suspension at all to do the V-8 swap. At the most, you might want to replace the front coil springs. The V-8 parts are larger as are the brakes. The choice is yours and the customers as to how much labor you want to put into it.
