    Anyone have any idea who out there manufactures improved suspension for the full size ford (Galaxy body) wagons? I've looked at Hotchkiss and CPP and they don't have anything except maybe for Mustangs.

    I have been looking for awhile myself so far I have found that there is a dog leg bolt on the lower control arm, that when changed out with a straight one and an off bushing changes the way the car handles. Here is a link to what I am talking about. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...ie-front-suspension-problems-and-fix.1026192/ I did find a rack and pinion steering kit from flaming river but it looks pretty expensive.

    Try Fatman Fabrications they will have a Mustang type front suspension for your car. They have several levels from coil overs to air bags. Have on in my 57 Vette and it works great.

    Thanks Lowrider - will check them out. Front end is old and creaky and could use some improvements!
