Mustang II Kit Stages 

Fatman Fabrications Offerings

Here at Fatman Fabrications, we offer Stages 2, 3, 4, and 5 to any hub-to-hub suspension kit we manufacture. 

 

The Facts

All Stages use the same basic parts including our TIG welded tubular steel control arms. The differences are the type of springs used and upper mounts specific to those springs and upper control arm.

Mustang II Kit Stage 2

Stage 2 Traditional Coil Spring and Shock

Our huge volume allows us to supply our TIG Welded Tubular Steel Control Arms as standard which eliminates the strut rod by straddling the crossmember for stability. Easily converted to Stage 4 air ride with bolt-on parts and a weld-on shock bracket! Shim alignment is now standard!

Mustang II Kit Stage 3

Stage 3 Coilover

Stage 3 adds single adjustable coilovers to the TIG welded tubular steel control arms. A shim system is used for ease of adjustment. Easily upgraded to Stage 5 Ridetech Shockwaves with bolt-on parts! 

Now redesigned with a 1-piece upper camber plate and shock mount- easier installation with less measuring and fitting!

Mustang II Kit Stage 4

Stage 4 Air-Ride

Stage 4 uses Firestone air springs that are so strongly built they act as their own bump stop! The OEM style shock is mounted to the rear of the suspension. Compressor systems and rear air suspensions are available and vary according to your application and budget. We use Ridetech exclusively and can be converted to Stage 2 coil spring with no fab work!

Mustang II Kit Stage 5
Stage 5 Shockwave

Upgrades the Stage 3 style to Ridetech HQ Series Shockwaves. Offers easier adjustability and a premium tunable shock for the ultimate street rod suspension. Updated upper mounts just like stage 3

Additional Information

All Stages use the same basic parts, including our TIG welded tubular steel control arms and a manual rack and pinion.

 

The differences are the type of springs used and different upper mounts specific to those springs and upper control arm. All Our kits are fully welded and using SAE 1018 steel and we use CAD design software to ensure the accuracy of the geometry.


Air suspensions work best to maintain ride height as the total load changes with a full trunk or backseat passengers. When used to allow an extremely low parked height the rule is to always return the vehicle to normal ride height for driving. Driving your vehicle lowered or raised can cause damage to the vehicle and its components. Air ride does NOT allow you to vary the ride height for driving.


All Hub-to-Hub kits include the crossmember or frame stub kits as advertised in the previous website pages, manual rack & pinion, new spindles, springs, shocks, tubular steel control arms, and upgraded OEM style iron disc brakes in 4 1⁄2” or 4 3⁄4” bolt pattern. We will not risk your safety with small 9” brakes!


For all Hub-to-Hub kits add $200.00 for power rack (we use the improved ‘79-’93 racks) and $80.00 to cover the rack main shaft extension used on widened kits. Narrowed ’35-’40 Ford kits use special rack & pinions add $250.00 For manual add $550.00. For power assist on the ‘33 -’34 Ford narrowed kits are manual only add $250.00. Ford narrowed kits must upgrade to Stage 3 coilovers.
