IRS in a Fox

Wasn't sure where to put this since it can relate to both the 5.0 and 4.6 crowds....


Anyone read the new 5.0 Mustang mag yet? They swap the IRS out of a 2004 Cobra into a '92 LX. Pretty cool idea since the subframe is all the same from '79-04 and the IRS setup can just be unbolted from the Cobras. I know my road racing buddies will be interested in the idea.

I've scanned the article:
(you're looking at about 250kb per page since I wanted to keep it readable)

Page 1
Page 2
Page 3
Page 4

Re: IRS in a Fox

Dont ever post here so sorry... Welcome to 2 years ago guys. I have had mine in for a while and it rocks. I did a few custom things that people don't normally do. It's worth it for a dialy driver and occasional track car. I don't have any issues w/ wheel hop so far. I could write a book on what's been done to my car. I do have a cheezy website with a few pics if you wanna look. If not, it's all good.

Re: IRS in a Fox

the IRS does help with handeling... just imagine how good it would be if ford designed it right instead of rushing though it and throwing it in the mustang.

Re: IRS in a Fox

If I could get the Kenny Brown parts, I would have NO problem carving into my crappy-rusted-on-the-inside frame rails. The arms are poorly designed from the factory due to frame rail interference.

Damn dude. Hella nice car.



A word of advice for your wesite though, since the pics are bigger and you've just coded it to shrink them, use this for the picture code: (I'm just using one of the pics as an example)

Code:
<a href="assets/cellunfinished.jpg"><img height="154" width="232" src="assets/cellunfinished.jpg" border="0"></a>
This way people can click on your pictures and see the bigger version without going through the hassle of copying and pasting picture URLs.

Re: IRS in a Fox

I need someone to help me re-build the site. I have a million pics and a head full of procedeures on what was done. I actually extended the lower rocker panels to 'bury' the pinch weld under the car. There is so much more fabrication I want to share, just dont have time to learn HTML and stuff. Ironically, I work for at&t and repair PC's and DSL lines all day long. Check out this pic
