    Hello Everyone, I have become so frustrated with trying to align my hood properly.. I recently just finished painting the engine bay and re-installed the engine (with a lot of new/upgraded parts) and the last thing I need to do is reinstall this damn hood. This is the same hood/hinges I had on...

    Okay so I've got a 2000 Mustang v6 5 speed with 155k. Now I've got something pretty weird going on, after driving for about 10 minutes (happens faster if driving faster) of driving you get this burning rubber smell inside and outside the car coming from the front passenger wheel area. I...

    Hi guys, back again... I don't know how many times i have posted on here just because all types of issues this car is giving me...Recently I got new wheels and tires. Front 20x9 and rear 20x10. I fitted 255/35R20 on the front and 275/35R20 on the rear. Now after I mounted the tires, I noticed...

    I don't have one (YET) but just wanted to ask, What happens if there is something that the car gets taken in for while under warranty, but it is not properly fixed before the warranty expires? I had my car in for a noise and vibration on the left rear and it was diagnosed as a cupped tire. They...

    Hey guys, I have a question for all you gurus that's baffling me and my alignment shop. What I have: I have a 1965 Mustang V8 with 5 lug drums all around that I pulled from a wrecked donor car. This car was aligned probably 5 years ago and sat up until this past year when I started working on...

    Hey everyone! First post so apologize if I say anything wrong :) I have been working on a 65 for six years and finally trying to put it on the road. It won't hold front end alignment. I replaced lower control arms upper ball joints and strut rod bushings. The strut Rod on the driver side won't...

    Cracked front rim and alignments all screwy. I need to know if the dimensions on other rims are suitable for my car and what I should do about the front tires. PLEASE reply with helpful advice on where and how I should replace this. Thanks

    Hello All, I have found this forum to have a lot of useful advice and tips over the years. I have searched through this forum but can't find the answer, hopefully somebody has run into this before and can help. A little history here, I have owned a 1966 Mustang with manual steering for...

    So I just bought a 99 mustang base model v-6 and I've noticed that the left front wheel sits very close to the read of the sidewall or fender. I'm not a professional at trying to figure out something, but I can do basic mechanic work. So....I thought I could solve this issue by maybe replacing...

    Well after one set of tires and a year after lowering my car, i decided getting an alignment was on the agenda. Thought i would make this post for anyone wanting to know exactly how in/out of spec the car could be with stock setup besides springs. I have had the springs on for around 15k miles...

    Hi all, I have a Mustang GT, 4.6 L engine, produced in 2010. I noticed that the rear end slides right on hard acceleration. Clearly, it happens on slippery surfaces (snow, ice or wet), but I believe to feel the same tendency on dry surfaces as well. Is it from the extra wight of the...

    Hey guys maybe someone here can help me, I've had a problem with my front end for a few years now making my mustang undrivable. What is going on is as I drive down the road normally the front end rises in the air and the front tires squeal and it swerves from side to side. There are about an...

    Hello Sportsfans! I've got this '71 Mustang that keeps trying to run me off the right side of the road. I really don't have the deneros or the time for my car to sit in a garage while waiting for a professional to take a guess on a car that's probably too old to be covered in any of their spec...

    OK, so I've just went thru my rear quarter windows by replacing: billet guide rod mounts from LMR, motor gear bushings, guide bushings, gave everything a good cleaning and greasing, & while I was at it, replaced the vertical quarter window weatherstrips as well. Now I've got a unique problem...

    well, I got the front of my car tore down to the inner fenders and I found that there is some damage to the radiator support, inner fender aprons, and to the sections to the rear of the strut towers. Its minor damage but just enough to throw the hood and fender/door alignment off a little...

    I just replaced my front struts with Blisteins and now the alignment shop can't get the car within alignment. They said they maxed out the C&C plates and the Camber is still way negative. Now when I'm on the highway the steering wheel goes back and forth. Maybe I installed the C&C plates...

    I Need to get new inner tie rods for my 1996 GT... how difficult are they to install?
  18. V6 Talk
    Hi, Today I replaced the leaking rack and pinion and tie rod ends on my 2002 V6 Mustang. Before I took the old Rack off I parked the car with the wheel centered, made makers and measurements on the spindle arm and frame, and counted how many turns it took to remove the outer tie rod ends from...

    My Mustang had a complete engine replacement about a month ago. After I got it out of the shop, I noticed that when I turned at higher speeds, my front end would shake. Due to my schedule, and the operating hours of the dealership who had done the engine replacement, I could not bring it back...

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT and my passenger side window seems to roll up too far and it barely hits the top of the window frame which causes it to have a gap. Its hard to explain so I made a video. YouTube - 2000 Mustang GT window issues
