    Strut Mount Bearing

    Hi All, I'm running MM Caster/Camber plates and their front track pack springs on Koni Yellows with an Eibach front anti-rollbar. Rather stiff setup. I was getting ready to install my bump steer kit and found the upper strut mount bearing blown up. Is this from a misalignment during initial...

    S197 Suspension Points

    Would anyone happen to have a point cloud of the S197 suspension points? I would like to model the S197 in susprog or lotus shark to get some data to play with but I haven't been able to find anyone who's measured out the car. I currently don't have the time nor the space to do it to mine.

    Confused on Ford springs

    I am trying to sort thru the massive amount of info on here about springs, and it has brought me to this question. We have L, KA, PA (P spring shows as discontinued). Consensus here seems to be that for a multi use Street/Autocross/4 day year track event car, P springs are a solid answer...

    Might've bitten off more than I can chew on this one...

    Hey guys,I took a brief hiatus from car stuff while I pursued some other hobbies, and finally said "screw it" and got pretty much a whole suspension overhaul, minus sway bars, and took to installing it today. My brother and I, both definitely amateur mechanics, spent about 8 hours today...

    Relocation brackets. Weld or not.

    Recently installed the Cortex LCAs and Relocation brackets. Seen in the instructions about optional welding them in. Says it is a must for drag racing. I autocross and estimate about 400WHP. Will it be fine the way it is or should I have a shop weld it?

    Best Resonators for Lowering Volume of 5.0 with Full Exhaust

    I have a 2013 5.0 with a very loud exhaust. Not quite straight piped loud, but quite loud at anything above 30% throttle. It sounds great at WOT, but being that it’s a daily driver, I’d like it to be quieter when I’m just trying to take off from stoplights and such. So I’m looking at quieting it...

    Will These Work?

    Hello everyone! I have been on this site about a million times trying to learn the ins and outs of suspension and the parts that make mustangs handle really well, and then I decided to finally make an account and ask some questions for myself.

  20. Curious about installing an automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

    I have been thinking that it is time for a new transmission in my 2013, and I am pretty much deadset on keeping it manual. Or at least I thought I was and then I got to thinking how hard it would be to swap an auto in and mount some paddle shifters in. So my question is, would it be worth or...

    Setting my bump steer the right way (hopefully)

    After tracking my car for 4+ years on the hopes that the FR500S setup (control arms and tie rod ends) had OK bump steer settings, and not having any issues up to that point, I was going through the car before a track day and found a loose ball joint. (Of course it was the Monday before a track...
