    Bought a new 03 Mach 1, but the previous owner stopped responding to texts/calls (go figure). The front driver side coilover makes an awful grating sound when turning the wheel--something is definitely not right. The rear coilovers are a QA1 kit, but the fronts have no identifying markings...

    I have been reading around and have noticed that most S197s have gone with eibach lowering springs. I am driving a s197 v6 and wanted to know if anyone had had RTR lowering springs on their V6. I have not seen any reviews involving having a v6, i have only read about them on v8s. I am willing to...

    So, I own a 2010 Mustang V6 premium with 20 inch wheels. It has 75xxx miles on it and drives like a Champ. It is also my daily driver and over a period of time I have noticed an increase in the steering wheel shake while braking. Higher the speed I brake more the steering wheel shake it was. So...

    I was given a set of barely used shocks and struts from a 2014 GT. Will these fit on my 2006 V6? Thanks, - Curt

    Autocross can be a great way to make inroads into the world of racing — street-class cars don't even need to have racing tires or intensive modifications to be allowed to race. Racing in the more modified classes means you need to start looking at more advanced bolt-ons, which is precisely what...

    Hi all, I know this topic has been discussed to many ends, however I can't seem to find good answers based on experience. I have a 65 coupe, pretty much stock front suspension, the car is lowered 1 inch all around and a few other things. I want to fit US Mags' Standard Wheel. 17x7 all around...

    Hello collective wisdom: I need some advice. I have a 66 coupe with a 351w shoved into it. Runs great, love it. The front end needs some help. I know a number of you out there have the same or similar set up. What kind of springs and shocks are you happy with? Thanks.

    Hi All, I have owned this car for a few years, last month I changed the wheels for a wider and slightly taller set. First time out I noticed it was rubbing over bumps, but only on the left rear. That's when I realized for the first time that the left rear was lower that the right, by about...

    Hello 5.0L Tech! So I replaced my shocks, struts and springs with the Bilstein b6 and B12 Pro-Kit from Americanmuscle.com and the ride isnt nearly as soft as i thought it was going to be, granted ive only driven on it for about 30 minutes so im thinking it wont be as bad when things settle into...

    Hello 5.0L Tech! So i ordered the Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit from Americanmuscle.com and am having the hardest time trying to fit the new springs. The spring compression tools ive tried to use havnt worked, the internal one i was going to use, I wouldnt have been able to remove it after installing the...

    Hey guys, I purchased a 2005 Mustang V6 recently. Going into the deal, I was aware the car required some work, namely, the suspension. However, the price was right. I also took this as an opportunity to learn. I'm a beginner to mechanic work, so if anybody could help me out and answer some of...

    looking into lowering my 2014 mustang GT base model. Can the KW V3 coilovers be lowered 1.5 inches or lower and not have a super stiff ride? In my opinion the stock suspension on the car is a little soft. There is a lot of vertical travel and it seems to have light damping. I'm looking for a...

    Alright so I have a '68 Mustang. I replaced everything suspension wise after I did my v8 swap. I took it to get aligned and that's when they told me (I'm an idiot and forgot) that I didn't change the idler arm and it needed to be before they could align it. So I ordered 2 new bushings, and got...

    I am gathering all of the information needed to rebuild my front end which I'm doing this weekend. Also doing the shelby drop. Is there an online resource that has the torque spec for these parts? Strut rods Outer Tie Rods - Count Threads UCA/LCA Spring Perch Shocks - 25 ft.lbs Idler Arm...

    Hello, I own a 2000 ford mustang GT convertible and I am looking to make some few changes in 2 month. I don't do track racing even if I like to drive in a "dynamic/agressive" way and I am not to good at mechanics. I need to change my clutch who start to smell burn and is really hard to push...

    Would it be better to keep my shock towers and just upgrade the suspension as much as I can afford or purchase a kit that removes the shock towers? is there any real benefit other than increase enginebay space?

    I have a 2010 Mustang GT, this noise is hard to describe but i'll do my best. It has 79k Miles, always regular Oil Changes. The noise started like 6 months ago, it is a slapping/pop noise when i turn to the left, going 18-25mph and at a 45-90 angle. It does continue to happen if im in gear or...

    I bought BBk Caster Camber plates for my Eibach R1 coil over kit to find that the plates are manufactured to take the stock springs, (see attached). If anybody has any ideas on how to work around this complication i'd want to hear them. If its not possible, are there other options for plates...

    Hey all, So I've look through this forum for various information on what I should replace on my 2006 V6 Convertible Mustang. I use this car as my daily driver and more, I commute pretty far on the weekends (400mi) so it gets its millage. I'm not really interested in having a "racing" style...
