MK3/MK4/MK5 Front Crossmember & Suspension

Recommended Posts

I've recently bought a Madison kit car with a 2 litre Pinto, 5 speed gearbox and Mk3/Mk4/Mk5 running gear (I'm not sure which as I don't know how to differentiate between them) It uses the whole Ford front crossmember and suspension but needs rebuilding with new bushes etc and it's missing the anti roll bar and drop links. If anyone has a decent crossmember with all or most of the suspension that's worth stripping down and getting blasted, power coated etc I'd be interested in buying it.

 

Thanks

No cradle but have various bits.

The prefacelift MK3 has oval tierod bushes same as MK1 Granada ( only avl in poly version) all others have round ones.

All other bushes & parts are the same see parts list at the top of tech section.

You probably don't need an arb.

Some low spec prefacelift MK3's didn't have one & therefore the tiebar doesn't have the mounting lug so you'll need a pair of these ifso.

Thanks for the reply. The bushes have disintegrated completely on both tiebars but it looks like the holes in the cradle are elliptical and as it has no anti roll bar it sounds like the low spec pre facelift Mk3 you mentioned. Can you message me with what bits you have to fit a post facelift cradle please as I'm going to buy a cradle and build a replacement one up with poly bushes etc.

 

Thanks for your help
