Not a bad lookin car...
Not very far from stock. CAI, cat-back, Tokico Blues, and some springs. I dunno what brand... red ones. Your basic run of the mill Mustang mods.

Well... how does it ride, aside from the noise?

I'm dead serious about the calipers making noise, by the way. They'll make one helluva racket. It pissed me off for about a month because I'd been all through my whole suspension and everything was new. Then my brother told me about a friend of his that brake caliper came OFF and f*cked his wheel up. We looked at my car, and sure enough, one of my calipers was a little loose.

I will have to check that out in the morning, I was told the kid who owned this before me did some of the work himself. It does seem to ride a little rough, nothing crazy. Also the tranny may be slipping a little coming out of third, not bad though. For a 14 year old car its not a bad ride.

from what I can see it has lowering springs with no caster plates, your steering rack is leaking something crazy, so if it were me I would look at the shocks. Also look at the Tie rods and ball joint, see if they have a lot of play. that is my two cents.

Good call... there is considerable leakage going on down there.

Yeah all that wet under there was just fixed, P/S lines were loose. I just didn't get a chance to clean it up under there yet. I only have a floor Jack, have to look into some Jack stands. I don't know how old the shocks are, they never told me when they were put in.

Is it a big deal that there are no caster plates?
