    83 5.0 swap

    I’m currently swapping a v6 mustang to a 5.0. I’m looking at buying a full parts car to rip apart rather than buying piece by piece and found a 78 in good shape. Wondering if everything from that gen swaps over to the fox or not?

    Bilsteins for an 86 GT?

    I'm looking for parts to do a full suspension rebuild and I've seen a lot of posts praising Bilsteins for having very good quality, however they only advertise them for 1987-1993 mustangs. Do these not fit on an 1986? Did the suspension change from 1986 to 1987?
