    Hi
    Not sure where to post this so the mod's can move it if needed.
    I ordered the Aldan coilover kit today. #M1BBF2S
    It is for a 71 Mustang but after talking to Aldan I agreed to install and let them know if there are any install problems.
    After working on these cars for over 45 years I think the 71 Mustang and Ranchero are close enough that it should work.
    They offered all the help that I would need and were very nice and easy to talk to.
    If anyone is interested in this conversion I should have them next week. If it is above 40 degree's in my shop [no heat in shop]I will install them and let you know how it went.
    Thanks
    Greg

    I'm interested and can confirm that the 70/70 suspension is very close to that of the 71 mustang. The main difference is in the parts related to the steering box. One could argue those aren't suspension parts...

    Hi
    An update.
    Looks like I won't have the coilover kit till next Monday or Tuesday as the kit won't ship out till tomorrow morning.
    That will be 6 days from Calif. to Oklahoma.
    Will post install pictures as soon as the kit arrives.
