    Ya me and my father spent 20+ man hours the last 2 days fixing everything. Took the bags out of the rear, New shocks all the way around, we smoothed things up with the grinder, cut some corners smooth, i re-welded the plate.

    Really now all i need is a C notch in the rear (found out its a 6in drop) and get a new bag for the front (has a slight leak) and i should be good till i do the new bag setup.

    well now it rides great, i need the notch in the rear and it will ride like a cadi, but before it was horrible, every little bump in the road would bounce me out of the seat.

    Im working on it man. I bought the exact same deck i had in the stang cause #1 i loved the memory stick #2 the one in the mustang was hacked up when someone tried to yank it.

    I already ordered 2 new bags for the front, and im taking it to a friend of mine that does crazy bag setups for a living and hes going to notch the rear. After that whenever i get my tax return check in, im going back up to Kwik Kar (where i used to work and my buddies still work) and im going to overhaul this thing.

    It has dark oil
    Brake fluid needs to be flushed
    i have a tranny pan gasket leak
    rear diff leak

    so i will prob fix all that, do an engine flush before new oil goes in. And replace all fluids with Royal purple. Its going to cost me $500 or so but should be worth it.

    That last picture made me cringe!!! People are so lazy. It's a shame too, you just bought it.
