Re: New Mod

I am more than capable of replacing a suspension system, I would like to get my hands on a gt rear sway bar though.

IMO, lowering the car would be a great next step.. but do it right.
make sure you know how low you can go before needing to upgrade other suspension parts. shocks/struts will only handle so much for so long.. when i lower my V6 once i get my fox back on the road, i'm going to do the whole thing at once. springs, ccplates, shocks/struts, etc. the whole nine yards. i hate starting something and having to go back to finish the job later.

like mentioned, if you have a good jack and a good area to work in with the right tools, the install shouldn't be hard. i installed new springs in the rear not too long ago, and i'm a girl.. lol
I never knew u were a chick....is just me or are we getting alot hot ME ladys as member now...the mustang of the month chick,you and that lalayla chick should do a ME calender...well we would be a quite a few months short but who cares

Re: New Mod

Now I don't know if has anyone has done this, but what would be required to put a 5.4L in a six body. I know what would have to be changed in order for that to happen. My future plan is either to build a 67 body with a built 351w motor or I could do the swap out on my car now. That is way down the line though. I just want to hear opinions on that, if anyone has done it and prices that would occur.

Re: New Mod

I think it would be cheaper just to buy a GT500..Unless you can do the work yourself.

You can pick one up off a wrecked GT for cheap...there are tons of them out there...

Don't cut your stock springs...mainly because when you start taking coils off, you change the rate/compression of the springs...you start putting more pressure and load on a shorter amount of spring. I know a lot of people do it, but I personally wouldn't. Just save up and get decent progressive springs, you'll be glad you did.

Re: New Mod

Anyone had any experience and buying parts from newtakeoff.com, they have front and rear sways from a gt, but it doesn't say if it comes with the bushings and links and the mounts especially for the rear.

Re: New Mod
