Sent a guy a message about a 04 throttle cable. TPS is ordered.

Found a 95 GT for parts, no engine or trans, $500. I mainly want it for the 8.8 and the black interior.

NGK or Autolite plugs? I had NGK TR55GP's and they only lasted 4 months, so Im a little hesitant about NGK.

If he falls through I am probably picking up an 01' GT parts car.
You can have first dibs on the cable.

After I the GP's failed I went to Ford and asked for coppers, they gave me platinums.

I havent seen a copper plug in at least 5 years.

TR6's will be here monday.

Do I seal the front snout and the rotors or just the snout on the M112?

INSTALL IS SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK. Tuesday or later since I have a alignment on Monday.

So I got my alignment today and I was helping him do it. We adjusted the C/C plates as much as we can and we couldnt get the right camber.

Driver side is set at -1.2* and passenger is at -1.8*. Driver side is on borderline spec(-1.3* is where the green area starts). Passenger is obvious out of spec, even after fully adjusting the C/C plates.

So what he said to do was take the top and bottom plate off, lengthen the stock camber slots(only like 1/16-1/4") and then install the plates and adjust.

Passenger side:

axle removal started. Pics to come later.

ran into a problem... lower control arm bolts are rusted to the sleeve on the inside of the bushing. 10lb sledge + wd40 =/= bolt out. getting pretty frustrated.

I HATE rusty/seized bolts.

I put the backing plates in an acid solution to remove the rust, so Im basically done while those soak and the LCA bolts soak in weasel ****. Tweaking my exhaust a bit since it hit the axle on certain bumps before.
