Performance Suspension/Mounts/Interchange/Part #'s/Refrence List & Add. Information..
#21
Frame kit is Upper and Lower subframe connectors with I belive some sort of cross brace. They are pre-designed to work with the watts linkage and torque arms. The Griggs Lower subs are 48" long 1"x2" tubing that connects the lower subframes much like all connectors. THe Griggs uppers go in the cabin and connect the front and back subframes through the floor of the car with 2x2" tubing that when combined with the lowers makes it almost like the car has complete frame support. The MM subframes come either std. or full length. I am still talking to them as too how much difference there is in the two. I know the STD connectors are 1x2" .120 wall thick 41" long and both connectors together weigh apox. 18 lbs. The FULL length are 1.5" x 2" with a .083 wall thickness, they are 65" inches long and both connectors together weigh aprox. 22.25lbs. I have not measured under the car to see how 65" connector would work ADDING a whole 2 feet to a connector .... I belive MM told me a while back that the extra length connects it to the K member.
$108 for 48" long connector from Griggs
$84 for 41" connector from MM
$154 for 65" FULL connector from MM

SO if you do the math you pay .44 per inch on the Griggs, .48 per inch on the STD MM, and .42 on the FULL MM. THat makes the FULL the best deal, but hey.....$84 looks great to me. But MM has not said if the STD work for the VII - just the t-bird.

Griggs said the "upper subframe connector" welds into the visible area under the carpet where the pan is spot welded to the frame. They said somthing about cutting the pan open beside the subframe and inserting the connectors - weld - fab to cover the holes back up. I guess you would need some serious power to "need" this support.

The part numbers are listed in the DOC. posted above, as for Kenny brown Panhard, no # sorry - might find one on the web, but have not. The Brace is genaric strut tower brace that stiffens the front end at the top much like the k-member brace at the bottom....goes accross the motor and attaches at the firewall.

Any type of schematic or help concerning rebuilding a 7.5 rear end for my stock 84 mk7 would help tremendously...I have all the parts{or at least i think i do}so any technical "do's" and "dont's" would help..
