Go to they have every option on Ford 9" you could want and will customize if you have a special request.

[I ran the nova lowers and tubular uppers this year and had great results/ yes I had to work out the bump steer a little but it wasn't too bad. we destroyed the car 3 weeks ago and are going to move up a class
If your interested I can sell you the uppers and lowers and correct ball joints/ with urethane bushings too/ It also allowed a wider rear end and increased Percentages to the rear because of moving front end 2 inches forwardand 2 inches wider/ e-mail me or call 205-620-3488/205-665-1199 I'll tryto help if interested
