    I just bought a fox and it currently has coil overs "I don't know the brand yet" and because of that in needs a spacer to keep the tires off of them. That pushes the tire too close to the fender and causes the tires to rub if you are turning and braking at the same time. If changing the spindles would help that I would like to do it. The car has a coyote engine so much work has been done in the front.

    The engine I just did in the garage to my home. Started with a block/crank/rods from Ford and have added ARP studs, Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, Edelbrock water pump, FR deep sump pan, FR roller rockers, Edelbrock intake manifold (converted to carburetion), Holley 650 vacuum secondary carb, MSD distributor and digital ignition box, Edelbrock 6psi mechanical fuel pump, and custom accessory brackets to mount the power steering pump and alternator nice and low. Just finished the bulk of it today and took some shots.

    Need to get the clutch on, Lakewood BH, TR3550 transmission with MGW shifter, aluminum driveshaft, and then a long way to go with wiring and bodywork. This never ends.:)

    Well damn Tob, ‘79 Granada chassis to a ‘20 GT500.
    That’s a helluva transition!

    I needed something to keep me busy before getting carved up. Figured it would ease my mind. Hasn't worked. :)
