I like it!
Love your car @JeffV8 !
Installed track pads, relocated auto blip, put cup 2s back on, installed aluminum expansion tank, changed oil. I missed a few things. Been busy. Now just waiting to head to Willow Springs for anti Tax Track day.
Sounds like an uphill battle...Good Luck!!!
The car is looking great. Can't wait to hear how she performs on the track with the new wing.
In the process of adding C2C R spoiler with a Anderson CF trunk and OEM R splitter.
With all the rain and car just getting out of storage I won’t make the 24th Track night. I will keep you posted.
Installed Steeda's new 2-pc rotors. It's approximately a 15lb weight loss (total) for the fronts and 4 lbs for the rear. The fronts are a couple pounds heavier per disc compared to Girodiscs, but for $1200 including shipping for all 4 corners, it was a price I could not pass up. They will get their first workout this weekend at Buttonwillow.
Got up early this morning to set up my track alignment for Buttonwillow this weekend. I happened to have the window down as I was maneuvering the car to my alignment spot in the garage and heard the tell tale signs of a rear bearing going out. Jacked up the car to check and sure enough, the LR needed replacement. Ugh... I wish I would have caught this last week when I installed the 2pc rotors and track pads.
Since I didn't have time to wait for a mail order (Tasca $112), I had to go to my local Ford dealer and negotiate a price of $160 for it (they wanted 189!). You can bet I'm going to order another to have ready for when the right side goes.
I just finished installing it and doing my alignment. I posted some pics below of what I found interesting. My car is a 2016 manufactured in March. When I removed the hub I found a very thin washer/shim sandwiched between the hub and axle. It was distorted in an oval shape. The new hub didn't come with this part and I couldn't find a schematic online that showed it either. I contacted the parts guy at Ford and he was perplexed as well. He did mention, however, that the new hub supersedes an older part number. I guess Ford decided this washer/shim was not needed or maybe causing issues?
Anyhow, all is done and I'm ready to pack to leave for the track tomorrow!
I was just about to post the same thing. I just changed my left rear hub and found same thing. But I removed the silver piece. On one video I saw it didn’t have one,the next video did after I removed it. Both videos were CJ pony. I don’t remember seeing that shim when I took hubs off last year to put on longer studs. I only paid 97.51 at my ford dealer
You had to rub in the price... Your shim/washer looks to be in much better shape than mine was. I believe the silver piece is some sort of dust or debris shield. I didn't bother trying to remove it.
