I've purchased parts from them with installation for the following items: front brake upgrade, lowering springs, and a new Ford Racing rear axle. Prices were very fair and I'm very happy with my experience (two different occasions).

Guys, I tried ordering mustang cooling fan from an online store autopartswarehouse. was also considering to buy from ebay auto parts. I was just wondering if these online stores have good product quality? honestly I haven't tried ordering from these but most blogs I read says they are fine. anybody from here who are clients or purchased before?

Looking for a good performance shop in the LA/Southbay area. I live in WeHo and work in Hawthorne so any suggestions from NoHo to the OC would be beneficial. I'm already planning on working with the guys at OC Muffler so that one is covered.

Thanks guys!

I guess that would be me!! 48 years as a Mercedes/BMW master tech, Ase Certified master tech, I will be doing all my own service/ repairs. The only trouble is that I am so damn expensive!! And I mark the parts up 200%!!

Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a shop in the Bay Area. I'm in Berkeley, and I'm having my two cars shipped up from SoCal. Both of them have some problems, and I'm hoping to find a place that I can have them towed to. I don't have the tools or the space (I'm in a high-rise apartment building) to work on them these days. One is a 67 Fastback, freshly built stroker moter that I think might have spun a rod bearing. The other is a 00 GT that has a built motor and a charging gremlin that I've never been able to hunt down on my own.

I talked to Mostly Mustangs in Oakland, and he said they're on vacation all of August and part of September, and even after that they're pretty booked for the rest of September. He referred me to Leo at Kraft Automotive, and he said that he might be able to take the 2000, but he doesn't have the time or space for the 67 right now either.

Any ideas?

I've heard good things about them on various forums. I want to swap out my open diff 7.5 rear axle for an 8.8 T-Lok (with 3.73 gears).
Late to the party but yes I have. Took my 99 4wd suburban there when the rear axle went south. They did a nice job. I'm taking a just purchased 97 GT there end of next week to have them diagnose and repair a clicking sound coming from my rear axle.
