The Ford clip is real good, about the same geometry as a Chevelle, except the front arm mounting points are 1.5" wider apart.

I use the stock spindles for now, and the stock lowers. Some guys use Big metric spindles and rotors, helps get the RC higher.

Use the Big metrics with a mono-ball lower ball joint, use the smal chrysler, with a weld in sleeve. Then recover the spindle height. Big metric is 8.75" the Ford is 9.25"

M&M motorsports is making a tube lower, and a stock lower that they reconfigured so you can run some lead on the RF, very nice.
