What about using a weld-in sub frame? What has happened to the weld-in sub frame?? Arizona Nova was the first weld-in that I was aware of, for the 62-67 Nova, and now I never hear of anyone or very few folks talking about using this method for upgrading a gen 1 front end. Am I missing something? Are the "bolt in", kits that much better or is it easier to work with? I have had a stock I6, glide, 1965 Nova for a long time,and now with the kids out of the house and on their own, it is time to upgrade this Nova. (they each took turns driving it to high school). I have just bought a LS 6.0L and 4L80e tranny. However, currently being out of work, (territory sales discontinued ) I still want to keep my dream alive, with this Nova. Let's talk real budget
(like trying not to break the bank, not a bull sh*t budget, like spend what ever is needed). Will someone please enlighten me on why I should not use a weld in hub to hub crossmember kit from say, Arizona Nova or Speedway or?? Plese help, what am I missing? Ken

I have an Arizona crossmember welded into my front subframe. Heidts and other companies make them now too. They are just like any other Mustang II setup in that you can use any Mustang II A-arms, shocks, and spindles you want.

My 64 has an Arizona Nova crossmember with narrowed Heidts polished stainless tubular control arms, QA-1 aluminum coil-overs, Heidts 2" drop spindles, and Wilwood Dynalite II disc brakes with the Heidts zero-offset hubs and caliper brackets.
