They always need a few things . Like bushings front to back is one of the most common things

Thank you. It is pretty clean, but does need a few things. Overall it's in great shape. I'm just glad to be back in a mustang!
Enjoy! What sort of things need doing? Just curious…

I had a complete ser of new urethane bushing for my old one in the garage if I didn't toss them. So if those are good they may go in.

I also need tires, weatherstrip for the top, window regulators aren't working properly, and of course it sits too high so springs and shocks are on the list.

The only other true issue is the airbag light is on so I figure the clock spring may need replaced.

It's definitely driveable as is though.

Check the code for the airbag, may not be the clock spring. Mine is throwing a code for something in the passenger side of things. Haven't looked to far into it.

I'm holding off on replacing anything with the airbag until I can dive into it a little. I've read a little about checking the codes, but its pretty foreign to me at the moment.

Basically, the dash light will flash in a sequence before staying lit fully. You can count the flashes and look up the corresponding "code" for the flash count.

So checked it out and it's code 12. The fuse was blown, but changing it didn't do anything. Battery is good with good contacts. Didn't get to do much but I'll fool mess with it some more later.

On the other hand, they had 235/55/17s on it. Ordered new 245/45 on front and 275/40 on back. Coupled with the lowering springs I ordered she should drop about 2.5-3" from the 4x4 look it has now. The tires one it are 1.5" taller than stock.

Now to find time to get those all installed. I'll update with pics once I do bit it'll be a while. Too many irons in the fire at the moment.
