I think I'm dreaming :idea: , but if you don't ask you'll never know..I was wondering if anyone has tried to fit BA -FG complete front suspension including alloy cross member brakes struts etc into a XF or earlier Falcon front Chassis.
....
I want Power Rack & Pinion , The Bigger Brakes, and even maybe run BA offset wheels on the front at least.


Yes, this guy has, into an XE.

Wow interesting. Crazy methodology but interesting all the same.
If I was to do it now I'd think about stitching in the floor firewall and inner fenders etc from the BA. As surely that would be a cleaner approach to having 2 to 3 layers of stiffening. .
But I think the wiser approach will be to find a xh and just pretty much bolt up the cross member from the later falcon.

XH are basically XF with E-series front rails and inner/outer panels reshaped to fit.
Mix and match to build whatever you want but still needs plenty of commitment and skills.

Skills not much of an issue. I have the tools and have built 5 speedway cars from a pile of tube. Time and commitment at my age is the problem. ..I should know better...

Labourwise - As I say, probably your best option. Your dash can go straight in, fit an AU/BA ute rear axle and go the floor handbrake.

I think the firewall below the plenum ledge might be E series as well.
It was brought up here a while ago that the trans tunnel was E series too - in the XG/XH to fit the larger BTR 4 sp autos - I don't know if it's fact or not.
The XH's do get the handbrake base floorpan, only the floor shift ones I think, I don't think the XG/XF's get this.
