Default Got a little motivated...

Got a little motivated last weekend. A little "too motivated" in taking things apart. Now I "only" gotta sandblast, magnaflux for stress cracks, powdercoat, re-install...

Those are Griggs SUPER-duty arms from www.griggsracing.com .

Parts are now podercoated, and look great. Will have to shoot some photos before re-install (TBD).

Unfortunately, my Mustang will be looking like that soon. i.e. all torn apart. Motors has to come out for a tear down, refresh, total clutch replacement, and re-install. Oh boy, I'm so excited and I just can't wait! LOL

Well its done. I squared the entire car, to within 1/16th inch accross the entire car. I bumpsteered the front suspension to within .010" at 2" bump and .000" (yeah, ZERO) in jounce. That bit took me nearly forever to achieve! WHEW!

After:

I need to know how to do all that. Unfortunately my suspension is ancient and not all nice and purdy like yours.
