I am a new member who has been reading posts over the past couple of weeks. I am tearing down my 48 D24 coupe.
My current plans are as follows......
1972 440, 727 trans. 8 3/4 rear. I might change my mind on the motor, pending on what I find when I am ready for mock up. The 440/727 that I have has been sitting in my shed for a while.
I am deciding on the brakes and suspension. I see there a lot of posts about using the old suspension, with upgraded brakes and shock relocation. I am leaning this way, but I want to check it out first.
I just have a few questions, if any of you have input, I am listening.
Q1--Is there a build thread that shows these mods? I have searched for it, I am not finding it if there is.
Q2-- Can you still get bushings etc. for the original front end parts?
Q3-- With the brake upgrades, and shock relocation, will the front end hold up to the 440?
any help will be greatly appreciated.
