i searched the archives and google couldn't find anything on this.
does anyone make a coil over shock (QA1, etc) to use on the stock upper control arm and shock tower on a '65 or do i have to go with a complete system like TCP, RRS, or something else.
thanks,
frank

As far as I know there is nothing other than a total control system

hi all,
thought i'd update this topic though i haven't finished the install yet. i'm still doing the engine swap.
i went with an adaptor made by a small company called MPR (Mike 810.798.8998). He was recomended by a guy a QA1 that's using this adaptor for a '65 mustang in a drag racing application. he's pulling the front end off the ground and slamming it back down. if the adaptor can hold up to this i don't think i'm going to have problems with a mild street application. the adaptor itself is a very nice piece of work finished with silver powder coat and grade 8 hardware. i'm using a QA1 shock with non-adustable valving and adjustable spring seats and a 250-350lb. spring but i could have used someone elses spring and shock. the adaptors were $125/pair. i couldn't have made them for that. if i ever get my digital camera working i'll try and post pictures.
thanks again for the input.
frank
