Re: Just ordered springs

I taped my springs with special electrical wrap that helped.


What kind of springs u got -
I have Ford racing "B" springs (Fox Body).
KYB struts/shocks, Steeda X2 balljoints, MM caster/camber plates, MM bumpsteer kit, MM strut tower brace.

The cotter pin is on the outer tierod so would I need new ones? Cotter pins?
And I'll get a vid up hopefully tomorrow morning
