got a few questions...

well i am in the process of replacing a few parts on my 1996 v6 mustang, and i was just wondering if there is anythign else that i should look at while the car is being torn into....

im changing::

- water pump and gasket
- thermostat and gasket
- power steering pump
- serpentine belt
- radiator
- upper and lower radiator hoses

i have 154,006 on the motor (i believe) and i was just wondering if there is anything else that should be looked at while i am replacing the above parts...

and also, im looking into getting a cold air intake, and lowering springs... anyone have any suggestions on those as well??

Fuel filter.

If you get lowering springs, get shocks/struts at the same time. 154,000 miles on stock s/s alone is bad. Throw lowering springs in there and you will have a rough ride.

Re: got a few questions...

hmm, the power steering pump is fine as long as it's not whining or leaking, so i wouldn't mess with it. But you should change the fuel filter regardless. over time it just gets crap in it, so might as well fix it. I believe that our year mustangs did NOT come with the clips that you need a tool for so, YAY!!

BTW, where ion Omaha do you live? What streets? I lived in Bellevue for 6 years and visit Omaha often. Maybe I could help ya if you need something. Also, check out HP Motorsport on 134th street. The hooked me up alot when there were on Q st.

the power steering pump was whining like no other, but it sounded cool for a while... haha, but i live off of 139th and Q in millard, and i probably am going to swing down to HP tomorrow to see what they can do for me as far as performance and my shocks/springs setup
