Not quite..the problem is that the TF frame is wider
than that on the earlier trucks. The Pacer upper control
arm attaching points can't clear the frame without
cutting a chunk out of the frame. But once the IFS is in
place, these cut-out pieces can be replaced, and
everything is cool.
If working with a bare frame, another approach is to
remove the crossmembers and pinch the frame together -
then the IFS can be installed easily, no cutting
required. Once in place, there is plenty of room; it's
just getting it there that presents a problem.
The track of the Pacer IFS is correct for the TF trucks,
though. Hope this helps,
