How-To forum

I think we need a how-to forum.... that way people can stop asking how to do stuff, and it's much easier than looking... I know it'd really help me out

lol its pretty darn easy as long as a few things are in line ...

do you have abs? does the new rear? if both do then good, if it does not and you do... then have fun

its not very bad if you could get some good digital camera pictures of each step no matter how small then that would be extremly helpful.

it is easy until you have to swap the axles out of an abs car OMG... talk about a pita... still not hard really just a little more time.... and when you have to literaly BEAT the lca axle mounts so the lcas fit... thats not fun either.

ya' know, I don't know if the new one has ABS... I thought it was pretty much a standard thing?... Every Mustang I looked at buying had it. I hope it has it... I love ABS.

I'd get pics, but I have no digital camera... my buddy's dad does, so I might be able to borrow his.... I will try... of course, Corey will make fun of me for how much fluid is leaking from the differential... but as I said, it was more of a sudden leakage thing... there's a spot and a trail of fluid through the intersection where I noticed the noise.... maybe my car.

wouldn't converting the new rear axles to ABS kinda really suck? I can't reuse ANY of my rear end. The dude said only two small parts in the differential were any good... and no, they weren't the axles, lol. Axles are all chunked up, as is the differential... I think one of the parts I can reuse is the differential cover. hahaha
