A good side to my bad luck

Well, this last week has been a real PITA with my car. First I find out I need to fix my TOB in the clutch. Seems I got a stock Ford one with my clutch kit...and well, it **** the bed in 4 months. Then the holes strip out on my strut tower brace as it is being removed to work on the TOB. Not super bad as it just forces me to put the nuts on there that I have been procrastinating on. While working on the TOB, I notice my rear differencial is leaking. Peachy.

Well, to sooth my woes, I decided to buy something for myself. Nothing super duper flashy, but some peace of mind to help prevent future pumpkin chunkin and rear seal leaking again. Enter, Billetflow. One pic is what has happen to a number of 03/04's due to torque and/or wheel hop...and the other is the solution to the problem that will be here friday (It is the red brace that goes on the diff to prevent torque flex)

Just wanted to share my new parts coming. A small christmas early I guess.

Ok, carry on.

A good number have done that at 100% stock. Granted, most have been from modified cars because many were modified within a month of being bought. But yes, a good number of stockers have done that. I am suprised I haven't blown mine up yet with some of the wheel hops I have gotten...which is probably why the diff is now leaking. Well, this little peace of mind will certainly be worth it...for the low price of only $160 shipped.

It even comes with a free pinion snubber while supplies last. lol
