SUS­PEN­SION & BRAKES

Unique Cars - - LUXO LAND YACHTS -

Noisy, creak­ing front sus­pen­sions are typical of older Fords and shouldn’t elim­i­nate an oth­er­wise good car from con­tention. All of the parts needed to re­turn these Ford front ends to ex­cel­lent health are avail­able and af­ford­able. Rear leaf springs that sag can be re­set but cracked leaves need to be re­placed and a com­plete spring set bought sec­ond hand could be in the same con­di­tion or worse than the one need­ing re­place­ment. These heavy cars are hard on front brakes; squeal­ing and a pul­sat­ing pedal de­not­ing worn pads and warped disc ro­tors.
