Cal-Tracs are your best bet. Easy to install (no welding), will aid in weight transfer, stop wheel hop, not damage your car. You can get them direct or from MMR.
SSM lift bars are useless on most applications. COmpletely worthless on 65-73 Mustangs except for nostalgia look.

Hey Alex wich do you think would work better the Cal-Tracs or Comp Engineerings slide a link? Both are the exact same price now.

For S&S use, the C&E's. For strictly strip, the Cal-Tracks

Yea, I'm curious too. I haven't installed them yet, but I bought the CE Slide-a-Links for my '65, and my car will be s&s, not strip only. Am I... A.F.U.???

Explain what? I'm not trying to be a smart *** this time either guys? S&S is street and strip use. The Cal-Tracks have no lateral movement so you will experiance quite a rough ride on the street. The C&E's have both vertical and lateral travel.

Alex,

I thought I understood what you were saying now I am confused. Originally you said that Caltracs were better for the street and CE are better for the track but you last post seems to say the exact opposite. Can you explain that

thanks

So... this makes it sound like the C&E's are better for the street, unlike your previous post. Did you get it Ackbwards?
