    I hav a 68 Barracuda that’s had some damage to the front driver side upper control arm mounts.
    Anyone making a IFS with the upper control arm mounts built on to it?
    All I’ve seen use the stock upper control arm location.

    Thanks in advance

    I've seen numerous aftermarket IFS with UCA mounts, Speedway Motors, Art Morrison,etc. None are bolt in conversions and a major hurdle with these assemblies is their designed track width vs frame width. Because our Mopars have unique wider frame width, the designed track width of the aftermarket IFS would leave your wheel / tires sticking outside of your fenders.

    IMO...for ease, value and cost, I would repair your UCA mount even if i had to replace the entire frame rail assembly. Good used ones are out there.

    Me. Denny thanks for the response, have you ever thought about adding the upper mounts to your set up? I don’t know the engineering involved, just curious.
    Like your setup, I’ve heard lots of good things about it and good things about you and your customer service.
    Thank you
