Front suspension mod - XR
Slunk over here from FSP to search the archives... nothing found as yet. So, I'm asking.
My issue: I want to relocate the upper arm mounts on a '67 XR, in the way Carroll Shelby tweaked the Mustangs. It requires me to redrill an inch lower.
Problem is, the outermost sheetmetal layer of the shock tower (in the engine bay) doesn't have full coverage in the area I want to drill. It would leave the underlying washers cocked on an angle, and maybe not as strong.
Has anyone attempted this mod, on an XR? What was your solution?
