thought someone might laugh from that... :)


Well I got the ball joints in, and oh yeah MOOG suspension parts FTW!!! This technician at my dealer borrowed me his ball joint press and then my buddy let me use his air tools.

And I loosened up the H, pried it away from the obstruction with a big screwdriver, and retightened it... and now all I get is a deep rumble out of it with no clunking! yay!

Now is on to the other odd front end clunks.... I think it may be the sway bar because it's stock and my car is slammed

thanks man

well I took it to the dealer and one technician helped me change the diff fluid. Came out pretty dirty, but not a single shaving or chipped gear. So my 3.27s are staying... however, if and when they blow... getting gears. We put in motorcraft fully synthetic fluid and friction modifier.

As for the front end, we looked at it while it was on the lift. My control arm bushings look good, everything looks pretty good but the sway bar bushings where it connects to the frame look iffy. They are solid but look dry and full of rust and stuff... so I'm gonna think bout replacing those. I also have suspicions my rack - and - pinion are going, but until it explodes for good I'm not touching it.

Anyone know of a good front end sway bar for our cars that is for lowered applications? It has new end links that are taking a beating because this sway bar isn't meant for the car to be lowered. It's a 1997 GT

Thanks all

George

Just get some shorter end links, Maximum Motorsports has them in a variety of lengths.
