Better do a bit of homework and know the difference between a coil spring/strut and a torsion bar type front suspension   :eek:  !!

How can you mention the 'M' word on this site??
Bill has a far superior front suspension available in the AlterKtion!!

Well there is one "bolt in"(requires a good deal of welding) kit out there. It is made by Magnumforce racing. Dont know anyone who has used one but I have seen one on a car they built. Are you sure it was a strut kit you installed? They require a good deal of fabrication work and welding due to the overall length of the struts themselves.

an A body mopar is to archaic to cost effectivly put struts in....you'd be better off putting an M1 tank of a cast iron old style big block 440 into a car with struts

Sometime this weekend I'll try to snap some pics of the rack in my dads Valiant. He still has the stock K-frame, but as Fastcars said, it is a lot of work, hopefully he will do one for my Duster next winter. santa1

Well typically aftermarket strut kits are not very street friendly. They are not set up for street driving at all. If it is a street car then I think the AlterK is the BEST piece out there.
