Ok got the rest of the steering components in and also picked a set of rims Torque Thrust II 17x8 all the way around with 235/40/17 up front and 245/40/17 out back.... Very happy to finally get the Stang back on the ground and be able to roll it around.....

Mine might not being driving much longer, might have to replace clutch/transmission parts. I'm still investigating my bad vibration problem when letting the clutch out.



Definitely looking good though. I really like how clean the engine bay and suspension is. I really like the TT2s as well.

Cleaning that engine bay was a chore but well with it in my opinion.... I just picked up the TT2's dirt cheap $800..... A deal too good to pass up!!
