Boss 351 Interesting Read

Interesting indeed.

The standard suspension for 1971 Mustangs consisted of independent, unequal-length control arms, coil springs, angle-poised ball joints, tubular shocks, a link-type anti-roll bar up front, and a live axle with variable-rate semi-elliptical leaf springs and tubular shocks out back.

So, the front suspension on the 1971 Boss was more sophisticated than on my 2013. Go figure.
