  1. Unresolved Warranty issues

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    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?

  5. Air Shocks vs. Gas Shocks

    Classic Tech
    Hey all, So my 65 currently has air shocks and I was thinking about moving over to KYB gas a-just shocks. I dont use the air shocks like they are meant to be used and the car came with them so I did not install them. Is there a ride difference between the air shocks I have on the car now and...

    I just had a new set of staggered wheels put on, and once I brought it home I noticed that the left rear wheel sticks out of the wheel well about a half inch, and the right one is about flush with the wheel well. I brought it back to the tire place and they measured the size and offest of the...

  11. When to add 4 link suspension

    Drag Racing
    I now have 527 RWHP in my 2005 4.6 blown Mustang. Right now, wheel spin is keeping the rear assembly from being really stressed. But if I get the traction OK with drag radials, etc, I might destroy the stock rear end, right? So how much power to the rear wheels before I must upgrade the...
