The Crown Victoria has become extremely popular as a front suspension swap for our beloved F-100s. One of the main reasons is because of the abundance of Crown Vics from 2003-2011. The aftermarket always takes notice of trends and, of course, this is no exception.
The factory Crown Vic front suspension has 1- or 2-piston disk brakes and a shock and coilover springs that have no adjustment. Thankfully, companies like Baer Brakes and QA1 Motorsports are there to help us all out.
Most people know the name QA1 as the company known for making high quality parts that work. QA1 released its own bolt-in front and rear suspension for F-100s. Dave told me that they had hundreds of inquiries to create a Crown Vic coilover conversion—and so they listened and created this system. Features include adjustable ride height up to 3 inches lower for a perfect stance, adjustable valving to achieve the perfect blend of comfort and performance, easy bolt-in installation, and most importantly, it’s made in the USA! Installing these coilovers are probably one of the easiest things you can do; it took us just two hours total.
Baer Brakes has been in the industry for decades. Something that has kept the company at the top of the game was staying innovative. When the market moving toward the Panther platform (Crown Vic, Marauder, and Grand Marquis), Baer developed this kit to make it easy to upgrade your front brake system with its 14-inch drilled and slotted rotor being stopped by a massive Pro+ 6-piston caliber. The kit even comes with steel braided brake lines that work perfectly with the factory lines. The entire brake install took us about two hours.
With a brake and coilover upgrade the front of our 1967 F-100, it’s now stable and adjustable so we can fine tune it exactly the way we want.
