    Ok now I feel like an idiot!

    It has been a decade since I have had my spare in the trunk. I get the tire mounted face down and fit the jack and hook bolt and secure the tire. It is nice and tight. My issue is what the hell should I have done with the tire iron? :wave: How the heck was this secured? 1998 cobra

    Thanks. My goal is to have the front suspension back or close to stock by april and air conditioning back in the car by the end of 2014

    I always wedge it at the far back, near the latch back kinda under the tire sidewall and tighten the spare down.
