Hi - this a first for me. I have recently purchased a 1964 Sprint convertible with a 302 and top loader 4 speed. The front suspension is pretty much crap. My other 2 old cars both have rack and pinion and updated front suspension parts. There seems to be 3 ways to fix this - do the original front parts with new bushings, etc. - cut off the whole front end and replace with a Heidts or TCI type suspension - or [my preference], convert to a coil over and tubular control arm setup like CPP, Fatman, and others. I'm leaning towards the CPP setup. This would be combined with a Flaming River power rack and pinion and new tilt column. I already have the disc brakes in front. Has anyone done this or something similar? Thanks in advance!

    Really! No comments! I've since moved on with my project. I tried the CPP front suspension and it was OK but not the best. So now I have a TCI mustang II type front and a TCI 4 link rear, all with coilovers. The rear also has a Currie 9" rear. Wildwood discs are all around with a Hydroboost. I took out the 302 and it is being replaced with a FordStrokers Dart block 363 with Holley FI. I hope this all works out - Dave

    Update - I finally got the Falcon on the road. A few comments - the TCI suspension is REALLY stiff! I've tried adjusting everything and now I'm thinking I have to get softer springs all around. Another big thing - the Holley Sniper EFI is no good. I had 2 to play with [Summit is very good about returns] and finally got a FAST system with the separate computer. Now everything works! It also took 3 sets of headers to find that Dougs were the only ones that fit with the TCI setup. Champion radiators work well, but I had to re-weld the mounting bracket so it would fit with the electric fan and shroud. Dave
