Universal Transmission Crossmember
looking at a T56 6 Speed Transmission in a 1966 Mustang using the RMP Uni-Cross
Crossmember and RMP Adjustable Lowered Motor Mounts without cutting the floor pan.
installed a T56 6 speed transmission into a 1966 Mustang without cutting the floor pan
sheet metal. We did have to modify the floor support crossmember that the stock
transmission crossmember would bolt to. This modification was necessary to get the
clearance needed when installing the larger T56 transmission into our Vintage Mustang.
This modification is shown in the instructions.
call this crossmember the Uni-Cross because it will work on many different
models with many different transmissions. Because of its unique frame mounting system, it
will fit cars that have an inside to inside frame width of 26 to 29 inches,
not just Mustangs.
crossmember can be used with T5, 3550, TKO, 500, 600 5 speed transmissions,the T56 6 Speed
transmission and an AOD/AODE transmissions. May work with other transmissions.
follows contour of floor closely to give as much room as possible for your exhaust.
on the model and year of your vehicle, this crossmember may require modifications to your
rear hydraulic brake line and parking brake cables. On the car in the photos, all we did
was push up on the brake line to reform (bend) it over the crossmember.

Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension System
Now Available for 1965-70 Mustangs
Complete Kit, $2495.00
Improved Handling and Ride Quality
Improved Handling and Ride Quality: The "Street
Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension System improves the handling and
ride of your Mustang over factory stock style suspension by moving the lower mounting
point of the coil spring and shock absorber to the lower control arm. This positions the
bottom of the coil spring and shock absorber closer to the tire and wheel which reduces
the spring rate needed to support the weight of the vehicle. This allows the use of
lighter rate coil springs and shock settings which results in more suspension travel and
better ride quality.
Variable Ride Height Adjustment &
Adjustable Front Shock Absorbers
Height Adjustment: The threaded body of the shock absorbers allows for
approximately 3" to 4" of height adjustment simply by turning the spring seat
and locking ring. This adjustment can be made without removing the shock and coil spring
from the car in a matter of just a few minutes. A check of your wheel alignment is
recommended after any change in ride height as camber and toe settings can be changed by
lowering or raising the ride height of the car.
Adjustable Front Shock Absorbers: With a
simple turn of the adjustment knob on the bottom of the shock absorber you have 12
separate settings that can be made to fine tune your front suspension to the way you want
your car to ride. This adjustment knob is easily accessible with the car on the ground.
Just turn the wheel so that the tire is pointed outward and you can reach the knob which
will be located between the spindle and the body of the shock absorber.
Superior Strength: The tubular
design and construction of the "Street Force" Tubular Coil-Over
Front Suspension System is far more rigid than the original stamped steel components. The
rod ends which are used at all pivot points are all rated at over 30,000 pounds. All
components are TIG welded for maximum strength. Also, there are no rubber bushings or soft
steel parts to deflect under load.
Smoother Suspension Travel &
Easier and More Precise Front End Alignments
Suspension Travel: In the stock suspension, the rubber bushings in the lower
control arms and strut rods restrict suspension travel because they are held tight to the
frame of the car. I have taken several calls from customers who have tightened up the
lower control arms while they were pointing downward and then couldnt pull them up
and into the right position to install the spindle. All of the pivot points in the "Street
Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension System pivot free through the
entire suspension travel and allows all of the suspension components to work together, not
to "wind up" and cause resistance.
Easier and More Precise Front End Alignments:
All camber adjustments are made with the built in double adjuster which is part of the
lower control arm. No more upper control arm shims or lower control arm eccentrics. All
caster adjustments are made by lengthening or shorting the adjustable strut rods. All
camber and caster adjustments can be made in minutes in any increment, no matter how large
or small is required, without removing any parts from the suspension. Toe adjustments are
made exactly the same as with a factory suspension system.
Corrosion Resistant Coated: All the
components of the "Street Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front
Suspension System are either nickel plated, anodized or made from stainless steel to
prevent rust and corrosion and maintain a new appearance. Cleaning with a little hot,
soapy water periodically will keep the system looking new for years. Also, corrosion
removing agents such as carburetor cleaner, brake cleaners and solvents, which can dull
power coating, will not damage the finish.
Replaceable Upper and Lower Screw In
Replaceable Upper and Lower Screw In
Ball Joints: One thing most Mustang owners are aware of is that if a lower control
ball joint needs to be replaced, you have to replace the whole lower control arm and get
another front end alignment. And changing an upper control ball joint is no picnic either.
With Rons design, if a ball joint should wear out or get damaged, replacement is
simple. Just unscrew the ball joint in question and screw in the replacement. If you are
replacing a ball joint due to wear, in most cases a front end alignment will not be
necessary. If you are replacing a ball joint because of damage, youll want to have
the front end alignment checked.
Uses Your Existing V8 Spindles, Brakes
and Steering Components
Uses Your Existing V8 Spindles, Brakes
and Steering Components: The "Street Force" Tubular
Coil-Over Front Suspension System is designed to work with all 1965 to 1973 Mustang V8
spindles, brake systems and steering components. However, brake hose modification, to
clear the shock and coil spring, may be needed. This is a simple modification, especially
if youre installing different front brakes at the same time as youre doing the
Improved Suspension Geometry
Suspension Geometry: Besides moving the lower mounting point of the coil spring
and shock absorber to the lower control arm and closer to the tire and wheel as described
before, the "Street Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension
System also lowers the mounting point of the upper control arm by 1 3/4" which
increases camber gain during suspension travel. Camber gain is important in keeping the
contact patch of the tire as large as possible during cornering. A metal templet that
bolts to the shock tower comes with the kit and makes it easy to be assured that you are
drilling the new lower holes in the proper location. This is the same modification that
Shelby made to the G.T.350 except that they were only able to relocate the upper control
arm downward one inch because any further resulted in a binding of the upper ball joint
which led to upper ball joint failure. The design of the upper control arm in the "Street
Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension System corrects this and makes it
safe to lower the upper control arm 1 3/4".
Adjustable Turning Radius
Radius: Wider tires, especially when used with wider rims and more backspacing,
can hit the inner frame rail of the car causing damage to both the tire and car. The "Street
Force" Tubular Coil-Over Front Suspension System comes with adjustable
steering stops. With adjustable steering stops you can adjust the point of where the
spindle stops turning which allows you to keep your tires from hitting the frame, brake
cooling ducts or anything else that could be in the way.
Are you tired of uneven tire wear
Front Tire Life: Because the suspension is designed to keep the tires
contact patch flatter to the ground, there is much less wear to the inside and out side
edges of the front tires. It is not necessary to align the front end with a lot of static
camber which causes the insides of the front tires to wear prematurely. Also, since the
suspension works with a softer front coil spring, the suspension travels easier which
prevents the weight of the car from rolling over the outside edge of the tire.
