Well my 06 has not had any issues but I have not bolted any slicks on it or anything. Just street driving. I can tell you that it handles light years better than my 85 ever did when it was new.cletus66 said:Jay, when the new Mustang came out, I was amazed at how much the rear suspension looks just like my 1966 Galaxie. :shock: :lol: I hear the new Mustangs have some wheelhop issues just like my Galaxie too. :lol: The Gal does ride real nice though.
Some of the lower priced or "sportsman" 4-links offered by some companys do indeed use real thick wall DOM mild steel tubing that is directly threaded for the rod-ends (no threaded weld-in inserts used).fordsbyjay said:why you couldn't build a 4 link..........with threaded tubes (not weld on bungs)
Allowing this slack (clearances between the rod-end's threads & the cut threads in the 4-link tube) is asking for trouble. This sack/clearance in a suspension can lead to ripped/pulled/destroyed threads from the tube or the rod-end.fordsbyjay said:By leaving the the rod ends loose (no jam nuts) then the bars could rotate but not come unscrewed because of the same thread direction. This would allow full movement and twisting of the suspension. Maybe one of the chassis guys will chime in as to whether this would work or not.
