Just showing off how proud I am of this beautiful K-code tribute.  I do want to lower that rear end about 1-2".  Thoughts?  Is that as simple as changing out the shocks?  



Merry Christmas

No shock change needed. Lowering block between the leaf spring and axle is very easy to do and reversible.

I would only do 1" drop or it will look like it's carrying a loaded diaper.

Car looks great.

Very nice!  Did you build the tribute yourself?

I wish I could say I did.  The restoration was done by one of the previous owners who owned a Body shop. 

I did redo several key pieces of the interior and put on the period correct rims with a set of tires.  In the future I plan on adding an authentic GT-350 tachometer, a K-code vin stamped toploader, an original Carter Fuel pump 4201S and lower the rear end just a bit.

Note:  I do have a 4-speed toploader open ratio with tag of HEH-BV 012745.  Bell housing part number is C5DA-6394A.  Worth mentioning is the transmission does have a vin stamp on it but the mustang owners over at VMF website have not been able to decipher it entirely.  Vin#6H01G659954

I've added a picture:
