I have a 1980 pinto front end in my pro street vehicle. I was told that the mustang two is the same thing. I am wanting to use Heidt's tubular upper A arms part #CA-101-SS And the CA-102-SS-M lower arms. These are direct bolt in parts if they will work. Does anyone know if the pinto & mustang two stuff is interchangable?

As far as I know they are not the same the mustang II is a slide bracket that is flat to the frame and the pinto is at a 90* angle to the frame on the upper

Yea. Pinto and mustang II both are flat. They have slots that you adjust the arms in instead of using shims. The lower arms are the same also. they use an arm and strut rod set up from the factory. Aftermarket mustang II cross members use the triangulated arms

Thats the reason alot of people do. But the a-arms springs and spindles are all interchangable

Me too I know my Chassis Enginering rails, the upper mount uses a shim and is at a 90* angle to the frame.
I think they did that to eliminate the chance of a hard landing being able to move the a-arms in the slots. I know driving my car on the street ive had it aligned about every two years
