I done a search today and could not find anything about the IRS rear of a TC from a newer model Thunderbird. I found one in a slavage yard yesterday and was curious if that dude, with some mods, will fit in a fox body TC? I think that it would be a great compliment to the handleing capibility of the TC. If it won't fit then that is okay too. Thanks in advance guys.

I searched on the person who posted it because I knew it was a recent post.

In an old Ford High Performance magazine, there is an article about Anthony Saoulidis' 86' TC. He wrote in and told them how he and his father put it in. The IRS came from a 93' SC. If anybody wants to know the date of the magazine is October 1996 Volume 2 Number 5.

It's really not worth the effort.

Perhaps if you took it all apart, replaced the "H" and "I" arms with lighter tubular pieces and replaced every bushing with poly or delrin...then maybe...

It would still be a treat to get it into the car. I saw the same article you did. Sure you can make it fit if you have the skills.....would the end justify the means? I'm not so sure.
