A Bill Mitchell Merlin III 509 BBC will generate a lot of torque and is rated at 620 horsepower. That will indeed stress your factory components. You can box in your factory arms to stiffen the suspension links. Plastic bushings on one end and spherical balls at the other will constrain the suspension without putting it in a bind. You will still have to reinforce the chassis to handle the added torque.

62 impala

what do you think of that 4 bar from jimmeyerracing,i think they should cut off the whole front mount and then you can get a full weld all the way around that stub and then box it all in with plate
