Did your neighbor have this issue on every start or intermittent?

I have not driven the car in 2 months because of the weather. I'm hoping to get her out this week. The dealership could not...

Adjustable upper only. This makes setting the pinion angle easier because you only have 1 arm to adjust. Going back and forth on the adjustable LCA's would be a total pain, and more difficult to...

Yes, you should change the axle back exhaust! Keep in mind that there is a big difference between Roush and Ford Racing mufflers. Roush is way louder. Its a great sound, but you should be aware...

As most have stated you may not need a tune. In order to gain the performance advantage from a new mid-pipe you will want a tune. Why bother making the change if you don't tune the car to take...

I have them on my '12. They are a great shock for the street. They lack the adjustability of higher end Koni's, but that doesn't bother me. The ride is definitely firmer than stock, but I also...

One other thing that I didn't see mentioned in this thread is that you should have BOTH a torque wrench and a normal ratcheting wrench in the same drive size. Don't go using your torque wrench to...

Clunks and noises are pretty normal from any mustang that I have ever driven. Mine is especially clunky when cold.

FWIW, A DS won't eliminate gear backlash or slop in the transmission so it may...

This is flat out, wrong.

I am running the same exact setup as slowbra. I have off road x-pipe and switched to GT500 axle backs for the winter time. It has a nice tone to it. The sound is very...

Then I would try again. YOu may not have gotten the pipes pushed together completely. Make sure to loosen all 4 clamps and get the x-pipe level before you tighten all of the clamps.

It looks to me like the x-pipe is not pushed far enough into the down pipes where the cats are located, and also it looks like it could be pushed together after the x-pipe where the clamps are...

I agree with the others. It sounds like a test drive of both cars is in order. Let her experience first-hand just how bad the visibility is out of a cama-row.

Lowering springs and Koni Shocks. STR.T's (orange) are great DD shocks and greatly improve over stock. You could go with yellows and have adjustability, but taht sounds like overkill for a DD.

I did misread the original post. I understand now. 9.5" is the most common width in a 19" wheel that's why I recommended that. At least from the wheel/tire combos that I have been viewing. IMO,...

Forget about the CJ manifold. Skip straight to the headers + x-pipe. Your set-up will benefit more from the addition of headers, and if you do go FI in the future the car will REALLY wake up. CJ...
