Sounds like you want to know where Bob got the parts for his Tiger so you can get the same parts for your Alpine. I can't help with the info, but if someone else can't help, maybe Curtis can put you in touch with Bob directly?

The front suspension on my Tiger was built by my son, Mike. The control arms are scratch built from special thick-wall tubing. Spindles,hubs and rack are Mustang II. For more info go to [toyzjunkie.com] and click on the New Tiger Suspension tab. You can contact him at hokey@oasisol.com

When people talk about "Mustang II" suspensions, they're usually talking about a whole category of aftermarket parts (rather than parts that literally came from a donor car, junkyard, or Ford dealer.)

One place to see lots of "Mustang II" parts is the Speedway Motors catalog... here's are a couple links to their website:
Street Rod Mustang II Suspension (page 1)
Street Rod Mustang II Suspension (page 2)
Street Rod Mustang II Suspension (page 3)
