yea....both arnt really good... but they arnt bad at the same time, if your clutch seems to be working ok...you might have gotten off lucky, but if the pedal is chattering...you need to grease the pivot ball, and the bearing retainer sleeve, and while you have all of it out, take the flywheel out, and have it resurfaced. only cost me like 45 bucks at a machine shop, make SURE they dont lose any of your 3 flywheel studs... they lost one of mine..and said it was like that when i gave it to em.. im not saying your dad is wrong by any means, the flywheel thing is "reccommended" but if he is a seasoned car guy, he might have been able to look at it and say it looks good enough to not get it redone....did you at least clean off the flywheel before you put it back in?

ok thanks. looks good. they look the same as my tips. 3inch by 18 full stainless. my hangers are before the rear wheels so you dont see the ugly hangers on the rear when you drive by or look underneeth. paid 70 bucks to have it done last year & they used the stock hangers & welded them to the chrome tips so i got really mad & had them redone yesterday and upgraded to rolled tips with the hangers before the rear wheels.

yea, ive got hangers for the mufflers, and hangers for the exhaust tips... they said the tips could possibly fall off if they get shaken enough....so they custom made the tip hangers for me, and the whole system is really solid now, and the tips really hug the body lines of the back bumper, so you dont really see the hangers too much, unless you are under the car

yeah yours look really good but im sure you know what im describing. i see it on most mustangs, the crappy little hangers that connect the tips right at the end. if they are welded on tight enough like mine you can put the hangers further forward.
