aftermarket clips

What aftermarket clip will give you the widest front tire on a 1st gen?
I Have Heidts now with 225/35/18. And need to get somewhat close with the rears which are 335 /30/ 20's.

I am awaiting my new tci front clip and have a question about the radiator support. I have completely overlooked what guys are using with the aftermarket front ends. Found a few pictures on here but can't tell what they are using. Just buy a new radiator support for an original front end or something else? What will work best with the tci setup?

Sorry Tim, I missed this earlier. As far as Mustang II front ends go the TCI kit will allow the widest tire.

Johnny Rotten was looking to switch from the Heidt's to the TCI clip due to the extra tire space. :yes:

Thanks Tim, I thought something was missing.
Tim, am I missing something on the LCA and the tie rod end? Are they suppose to be parallel?
Not at all. The rack and pinion inner pivot is above the lower A arm and in line with the inner pivots of the upper and lower A arm. This is how you properly minimize bump steer. Also you do not want preload on your sway bar, it will create handling problems.

Heres mine


I have the Global West Upper and lower CA, coilovers with QA1 shocks, upgraded with wilwoods Dynalite Pro Series Disc in the front
Ive done some track racing with it until my rear drumbrakes faded and I lost all breaking power.
And I had a bad alu spacer on one of the back wheels so I ended up loosing that wheel, it wasnt going fast since I heard that something was wrong, but I saw thew wheel coming past me.

Now its time for upgrading the rear, what do ou guys think,
Im thinking of going with Wilwood Dynalite Pro Series Disc Rear Parking Brake Kits is this a good choice or is there something that will fit better with my Nova?
Do I have to change the brakelines and power steering stuff, proportioning valves etc?
At the same time I will order GW frame connectors and leafsprings
Since Im from sweden I need to order everything at the same time to save money on shipping.
So a complete list would be nice :)

Rgrds Niklas

this is the car before the repaint (The wheel incindent made a mig mark on the rear fender) I use the 17" wheels on track and 15" wheels when cruising :)

I know this is old, but I would like to know what brand of wheels the black 17 inchers are? (The ones on the car when it was blue).
