I asked almost the same thing 44 views no replies. I am going to order one this week. I don't like that I it is hard to get answers from AJE. I think they are too worried about not selling a complete kit or someone might piece meal their kit. My plan is to order a kit and then I will re-engineer what I don't like. I am not going to use their struts. I want a more adjustable strut. I want A-arms with adjustable heim joints. I may have all or parts of their kit for sale. I need to see how the wheels set in the fenders and ground clearance with a dropped spindle. I may need a shorter A-arm to keep tires from rubbing on fenders. I will post more when the kit arrives.

I have the same concerns as you. I emailed them and all they said is that the Mustang kit would work. I think that the track width, frame width, and suspension points(shock towers) would be different than a Mustang.

STPro please keep me informed on what you find out.

Did they give you a price on the kit ? Would like to see one installed on a Comet or Falcon.

I Was planning on cutting the shock towers as needed for headers. I also have no problem cutting up the lower control mounts and motor mount brackets. I would just drill out the spot welds so if I wanted to reinstall them I could. I just drill two I/8"holes in the parts to use as relocation holes.

I am getting anxious for the AJE kit to show up. I expected it to show already. I had some special things added that may have delayed it.

My K member showed today. What a great Birthday Present. Now I just need to get my knee healed so I can pull the motor out.

The reason I was asking is the K-member is located off the holes for the brace under the car so I was really just looking for a factory mounting hole location. So I guess I will look at reverse engineering it. I will use the spindle center line or clutch cross shaft to get front to rear location.
