Had to order a 24mm Wrench. I only had up to 22mm. Should be here tomorrow.

Next issue. I ordered the C springs from Amazon for 2 reasons. Good price and they were available next day. They arrived today.

I installed the fronts and realized one of the rears has powder coat damage. I contacted Amazon and they are replacing the spring. This works out since the passenger side rear needs the full work over still. Disassembly, TQ box install, axle bushing, and control arms. So I have plenty of work till that spring needs to go in.

I'm glad I could help. And thanks for checking out my videos.

Does the Explorer intake hit ALL strut tower braces, or just OEM braces?

I have not used the J&M CC Plates, but based on the quality of the Upper Axle Bushings and SS Brake lines I've used, I think they'll work well.

There are many things that factor into bump steer. Having the tie rods level with the steering rack (not angled up toward the spindle) usually means you don't need a bump steer kit.

I only adjust the shocks, struts and rear adjustable sway bar on my SRA car. My cars aren't daily driven, so I leave the camber settings where they need to be for autocross. If you plan on knocking in camber at events, you can make two permanent marks on the CC plates that indicate "street" and "autocross" camber.

The combination of age and mileage suggests your Quad Shocks are probably not working as well as they should. If you aren't cramming massive tires in the rear (you shouldn't, staggered is bad for autocross), you can get KYB Quad Shocks. They have a covered piston and can hit larger tires, but they are inexpensive. You do NOT need to buy super-expensive Quad Shocks. They just need to work.

Maximum motor sports brace clears cobraGt40 intake and 94-98 hoods as well.11534275-1E61-47AB-A87F-BA0AD3496304.jpeg11534275-1E61-47AB-A87F-BA0AD3496304.jpeg 11534275-1E61-47AB-A87F-BA0AD3496304.jpegF3ECA984-7481-4A82-915D-7156A5CECC21.jpeg F3ECA984-7481-4A82-915D-7156A5CECC21.jpeg70BB59F3-35BA-487A-8985-4A5002E038EF.jpeg 70BB59F3-35BA-487A-8985-4A5002E038EF.jpeg

Very nice on the brace.

This week I completed the install of the TQ box reinforcements, Undercoated with POR 15, and replaced the other rear axle bushing.

I installed the Global West Deltin Rack bushings today. This was a very easy install. I didnt even undo the steering shaft.

Decided to order the custom Delrin A Arm Bushings for BMR Arms from Jacques at Bene's Racing. I dont plan to install these right away unless I hit another speed bump in the build.

The tockio rear D spec shocks should be here Monday. Unfortunately the civil unrest delayed them 4 days so far.

Left Togo is reinstall the other LCA, install shocks and quads, then get the wheels back on it. Its getting real close.

Okay suspension has been on for a few days. I have driven the car some but nothing crazy as I'm tuning my megasquirt from scratch still.

It feels so much tighter. I love it.

I did just pull the rear C Springs and cut 1/2 a coil from the top dead coil. The rear was way high. Paint on the cut surface is drying so I have not reinstalled them yet to see if there is a height change. I know it will tend to settle but I read a ton of threads where most cut a full coil. Apparently Ford used to have instructions on cutting the FRPP Springs. I could not locate those but I trust the overwhelming amount of posts stating that.

I'm looking at running the 18x10 SVE R350 wheels front and rear. It seems like they should clear stock front suspension with a 275 tire.

The R350 rims have essentially the same offset and backspacing as the S350 rims I use on my New Edge cars. Your fenders are narrower than mine, but the 275s will be narrower than the 315s I run up front.

They should fit, but every car is different. You might have to roll your fenders. And one tire can stick out more than the other up front.

I would recommend having 1 tire mounted on 1 rim and testing it on all four corners before getting all 4 tires mounted.

18x9 is also another option just wanted to maximum the 275 footprint.

I know people running 18x10 rims on the front of 94-98 Mustangs. It's just impossible to say for sure that they will fit on the front of every 94-98 Mustang. The goal is to run a square setup that gets the biggest contact patch, so it's worth testing the 18x10 rims up front.

The SVE 350 wheels seem like the best value between weight, price, fitment.

I've used several different SVE wheels on my cars over the years. They have held up well under autocross conditions.
