Foxbody rear ends?

Hey, guys. Can you give me a run down on how to remove a rear end? I want to replace my springs/shocks/struts.

to replace the springs and shocks, you dont need to remove the rear end. its actually pretty easy. just support the car on jack stands as high as you can. the pit your jack under the rear. remove the lower shock bolt, then upper. now you can bring the rear down really far. if its not enough to get the spring out, then rent a spring compressor tool from autozone. also these procedures will be better outlined in a haynes or chilton book.

Re: Foxbody rear ends?

Goodness, Dreamstang. You know everything about these cars, don't you?! =)
I'm just gonna start asking you all of these questions, haha. Which brings me to my next questions...Sorry!

1) Do you know how much it would be to get a new windshield? Mine's kinda... FUBAR.
2) Since you have a carb on your car, which fuel pump are you running? Any suggestions?

Thank you so much, man. I appreciate it.

Haha thanx. But there is other people around here that know as much and more than I do.

A windshield replacement is gonna vary depending on area. But around me I would expect to pay 150-200$ installed. That will even usually include them doing it at your house if its not drivable.

I don't know what pump is on mine because it was on there when I bought the car. But I bought a Holley blue for when an upgrade is do. That's what I would recommend, with the use of an adjustable regulator.
