Is this cause for concern?

7E746DEB-475E-41CB-8772-EF6F19833493.jpeg Little bit of seepage along the axle housing. Doesn’t look current, ie no active drippings of oil, etc. but I’m wondering/curious if there are seals or ??? in there that might need to be addressed. And if so, shouldn’t the shop that R&R’d my rear gears a short time ago have alerted me to this?

thanks!

P.S.- sorry if the glare of that shiny new RUCA I just installed affects the picture. Lol... but I digress....

Those tubes are for the installation of the bushings. Windex or 409 will remove the residual crap from your skin quickly.

The torque arm kinda kills comfort pretty significantly. Other than that, I can't complain about anything MM.

Banned? I am not sure what you mean there as I am not aware of anyone getting banned. There are more then a few good brands in the mustang game and I am not afraid to admit that. Now that also means that there are more then a few bad brands as well but I would never attack someone here for their choice of brand.

No, you won’t be banned and there hasn’t been anyone else banned for suggesting what they saw fit. This gentleman bought what he wanted for his car based on his own capacity for decision making.

Are you making YOUR own decisions or following a trend?

All brand-slamming aside..... Any pointers regarding the install of LCA’s? The directions are pretty clear... right up to the point where they picture using a measuring stick or ??? to level the LCA to stock ride height. Just want to be clear: are we talking STOCK ride height or Eibach Pro-Plus suspension kit ride height that is now the “stock ride height”?
And... how difficult/easy is it to adjust the ride height and match both sides’ height once installed?
As always, I appreciate your input and HELPFUL feedback!

the only pointers I will give is to have some ramps or something ready to put the wheels back down on after you jack it up. It needs to be at ride height when you tighten the nuts/bolts for the arm. How hard it is to set up the ride height will depend on how good you are at making the adjustments and how anal you are about getting them matched perfectly. At some point you just going to say it is good enough because you have had enough.

Here’s a thought: should I wait until the motor is back in to get a true weight/ride height? Seems like I should, but I’d love to get after this during the down time

I guess I could at least do the pinion snubber (1/2 hr job), finish the other RUCA in the meantime:-(
