    Ditch that shit man. Waste of money if you have the upper and lowers. Not like your having traction issues or something. BUY GEARS!

    Once you get your upper and lower control arms, get rid of the quad shocks.

    Miek is the guy who has that white 96 cobra that he like blew the motor in that night at the mustang meet and he said he can put them in really easy casue he works at downtown ford and is moving into the shop this month. and he said he wouldnt charge me to do them so it wont have to take them to JAWS and pay 500 bucks. Unless you want to put them in chris i dont know if we could do it at your my house though.

    are you still getting 3.55s or are you gonna step it up a notch to 373s. I'm going to get 3.73s but that's only because my powerband is above 5k.

    He has been debating for almost a year now. How am I supposed to believe you are gonna get them when mike can install them (you shouldnt believe everything anyone says). You said like 4 months ago you were going down to jaws to get gears like 3 weeks in a row. Its your car dude I honestly dont care if you want to stick with your huge ass 2.73s its just funny that you have been saying you want and need gears but never get them. And calm down anyway man its just a joke and you know it.

    Im not mad you guys keep saying "buy gears" and i was going to go to jaws but other stuff comes up i have to spend money on. And then when i called them they said they are moving their shop to roseville so i figured that i would wait till the y move up here so i dont have to drive way the hell out in like west sac or wherever it is. Then Mike said that he can install them so i figured i would just wait till he can put them in so i can save like 400 hundred bucks and put it towards something else.
