Adjustable Strut Rods part# ASR-7


Ranchero 1963-65
Adjustable Strut Rods part# ASR-7
Strut rods (technically called brake reaction strut rods) locate the lower control arm fore and aft in the fender well. Standard bushings deflect during acceleration and braking allowing the tire to move fore and aft in the fender well. This movement slightly changes the wheelbase; front-end alignment and directly affects the carís stability. Stiffer strut rod bushings are one way of reducing the fore and aft movement issue. Global West recommends using high-density rubber bushings over other materials which allow the strut rod to pivot with minimal fore and aft deflection. Other materials are often too stiff which may cause the strut rod to eventually break. A more positive approach to the problem would be to install an adjustable strut rod kit with a spherical rod end in place of the rubber bushing. Global Westís strut rods are designed as a bolt on application. No welding or frame modifications are required. When using a strut rod design of this nature the deflection is totally eliminated. The suspension no longer deflects fore and aft. The vehicle now sees a lower a-arm rather than a two component system (strut rod & lower arm). Note: Many Ford and GM models had adjustable strut rods from the factory. 1964-66 Mustang and up through 65 Falcons and Rancheros do not have adjustable rods. Installing adjustable strut rods is a big help when dialing in the front-end alignment. Strut rods are powder coated black Adjusting sleeve uses a standard open-end wrench, no special tools required Hardware is included with each kit Bolt on application, no frame modifications
