ok so i just finished my 8.8 rear end swap after 9 hours a day for three days. i had 3 of my friends helping and was still very hard. i ran in to some problems that i solved and that r still a problem.
1st one was the bolt holes on the rear end were the lower control arms connected were to small for some reason even with the bolts that came with the rear end and to ones of mine. so i drilled them bigger.
2nd on the rear end there were spring holders that look like the 05-08 mustangs come with. i grinded those off cuz my frame was resting on those and not on the spring.
3rd when i had every thing done i thought i went to take a test drive but it had alot like alot of resistance/drag. so i jacked it back up and found the my ebrake was engaged for some reason i did not leave it up when was doing the swap. so after dome time i could not get it undone and just cut it lol.
4th my current problem is there is some drag still after the ebrake was removed. i took it for a drive did a burnout posied up
.but then i stopped after 10 min of driving i saw my disc brakes glowing red!!
so what is my problem besides the obvious reason the brakes. how can i fix this and get my brakes to retract ?
did anyone have this many problems with this stupid thing
any help would be great
