    Hello my name is Izzy I just bought a 12 Boss with 19K miles it came from CA with a Lemon title (transmission) got for thousands below asking price. I just bought the Ford Racing springs, Ford relocation brackets, Ford LCA, Panhard, and Castor Camber plates. My problem is finding a shop around Milwaukee that knows how to install and set up my suspension. Can anyone help with suggestions? I will be attending track days at Road America and Sunday AC events. Thanks

    Izzy.

    Welcome.

    The parts list above is just about what I installed on my Boss. Nothing fancy requiring a race shop. Any average shop should be able to stall these parts.
    If I was in town, I would have you drive to my place and we would bolt them on in about 3 hours. Yours would be the third I have done.

    Once installed, have an alignment shop set up the front end. Again, nothing fancy. Find specs on TMO and pass them to the alignment tech.

    I don't use my car as a daily driver and have only put 12k on it so far. I run 2.4 neg camber, 7 deg. caster and zero tow in.

    Has the MT-82 been fixed?

    Thanks for the offer I actually took it to a Ford dealer that had a mechanic Justin that races Mustangs at Road America he had it hooked up pretty good for a great price. The car was lemon titled because of the transmission, it was a CA car and I bought it at the Oconomowoc Ford. The transmission was replaced new and it seems to work OK. Right now my main problem is not passing emissions!! Ive driven the car over 300 miles and it still fails indicating an O2 sensor not reading. Im lost for words and running out of options. They keep telling me its common when they disconnect the battery, however after driving 300 miles it should be able to pass.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum!
    Sorry to hear about the E-test issue.
    If its indicating a O2 sensor issue, I thought they could be tested ( dead/alive ) or just replace it ?

    Good luck,
    Don
