Looks sweet. I used the RMS AlterKtion setup, but it is apparently no longer available. It's nice to see someone making parts for our cars.

If I wasn't so invested in the factory suspension I'd be all over it.

Are you installing on a J body, I didn't see it in the list ?
Cheers
Well that's the plan. In my experience fmj's share suspension components. I guess i will be the first to know if it fits.

Magnum Force has an attractive looking modern suspension, but I don't see many good reviews for their company or the product.

Out of curiosity I checked reviews and didn't come up with any that were very good either, both for the product or customer service. Would make me leery of ordering from them, but thats just me.

There has to be an engine cradle from something modern with similar dimensions that can be made to work.

Definitely appears to be a shady business. I'm glad to be keeping my front mostly stock.

I bookmarked the Magnum Force website years ago. Dreaming about how cool it would be to have one of these in my LeBaron with the rack and pinion steering! They are a little spendy for me (basically at least 5k when it's all said and done! Actually life's circumstances has me thinking about going the other way and sell my LeBaron and all related parts. I don't have a 2nd garage to work on anything so every year I would take off the LeBaron's summer wheels, put on the winter wheels, park it along side of my garage and wrap it with an Empire car cover and a heavy duty tarp over that, Using bungees to hook the edges of the tarp together. Every year I say I'm gettin' to old for this shyte and with upcoming reconstructive foot surgery, I'm looking at the reality of my situation!

Greyghost, I know all about the HD tarp and bungee cords lol. I do that too for the truck when rain is in forecast here in FL. Then remove it asap so everything airs out. It's a PITA but definitely necessary with limited garage space.

About a month ago I found a place to store the LeBaron. I didn't bother switching the wheels out. My nephew is not mechanically inclined and he can be a bit hard headed. With my foot problem I cannot squat down and precisely show him where to put the floor jack to raise the car. In my imagination I visualized him, in his hard headedness, that HE would determine what point to raise the car. I had visions of him raising it using the oil pan as the jack point! I shuddered and started looking for a storage unit for the car. Found one! Indoor/not heated about $90/month. Left the summer wheels on. Pulled the battery, rear plate and antenna. put the cover on. No bungies and there it will sit until I can drive again.
