    Axle rear end question

    Carnage5oh_s197, Best method is a physical test: * Lift the rear wheels off the ground. * Put a mark on the driveshaft and put a mark on teh inside of one rear tire. Masking tape works nicely. * Rotate the driveshaft, counting each revolution, until the tire has made one revolution...

    S650 REVEAL

    What "Forty61" said. Rear is too angular, hood has very little drop until the last foot or so, the rectangular digital screen is an eyesore, and the S650 is very heavy. This looks more like a refresh than a re-engineered vehicle. Nice HP but it must be generated at something north of 7k RPM...

    Best Camber Caster Kit?

    Steve Shaker, I'm in full agreement with Pentalab and I am a happy Vorshlag customer. The c/c plates are very well designed, construction quality is top-notch, and the customer service is awesome. These plates can be adapted from strut/spring to coilovers so if you plan further suspension...

    Headlight wiring

    NovaKane, You need to find a wiring diagram for the headlight harness. Haynes/Chilton's manuals have wiring diagrams. There is an e-shop manual stickied in the forum and there is an electrical section available. edit wiring diagram: "https://iihs.net/fsm/?d=711&f=085 - Headlamps and...

    Leaking... Driveshaft?

    TonyGS197, No direct experience but it is odd to me that both ends are leaking. How many miles on the car? If there are a lot, you may want to get a one-piece driveshaft, or, see if a local transmission shop can provide new boots. Not a lot of help but something to think about. :) Chris

    Installed BMR Suspension, Question?

    Travis, Welcome to the forums! Your shop should know this but polyurethane bushings should be lubed with silicone grease (like SuperLube) and NOT with a conventional grease as the hydrocarbon version will degrade the polyurethane. HTH, Chris

    Oil dipstick tube - is it straight or angled?

    Dougmore: Not sure if this will help but... from the tascaparts.com site: "Oil Tube - Ford (BR3Z-6754-B)" for the 5.0 L 4V engine https://s3.amazonaws.com/rparts-sites/images/996a7fa078cc36c46d02f9af3bef918b/d67366a15c8ab9509ca45de4445648c9.jpg (Not sure if the link works but you can...

    Ford performance Handling Pack

    Gt197, YMMV but... My car came with the Ford package (non-adjustable struts and shocks, P springs). I added FRPP front and rear sway bars and BMR LCAs, LCA relocation brackets, panhard rod and brace. I added FRPP bump stops but cut the top nub off. I also just added Vorshlag caster/camber...

    Splitter for 10-12 GT?

    vxr500, Sorry for the duff info about bluaero - he used to make splitters and that's why I had him bookmarked, lol. I guess there's not enough market for the 10-12 model years. Would Rally Innovations make you a customized splitter? A phone call to them might be worthwhile. There were...

    What have you done to your mustang today?

    Vandal, I recommend the combination of Wolfgang's "Perfekt Vision" glass cleaner and a Glass Master triangular-shaped tool that has a microfiber pad that gives good access to the corners and keeps the cleaner off the A-pillar covers. The tool is not mandatory but it focuses the cleaner where...

    What have you done to your mustang today?

    S197Forum-ers: Nothing major but finally eliminated a squeak in the rear. Pretty audible in the cabin but not so audible outside. Tracked it down to the urethane bushings of the swaybar endlinks (FRPP s/b installed a while ago) at the sway bar end. I had greased them when I installed the...

    Issue with headlights

    Yosep, Check the cabin filter drains (under the hood, passenger side, lift the cowl cover (carefully). If the drains are plugged then water can drain back into the cabin into the junction block and cause some havoc. Look at the connector at the headlight. Any corrosion or discoloration...

    Anyone know where I can find paint to match the "dark stainless" wheel color Ford uses?

    ghunt81, Can't help with paint color but I have another suggestion for you. How about calling a mobile wheel repair outfit? They'll smooth out the road rash, repair any divots, and color-match paint the wheel to the original paint (spraying the whole thing). "AWRS" is Alloy Wheel Repair...

    BC Racing (BR series) Camber Plate

    otani25, The "corner carver" sub-forum has a treasure trove of info and Terry Fair/Vorshlag posts frequently, offering a ton of helpful advice based on real-world track experience.

    Managing or tuning out - "Rev-Hang"

    759-OR, I'm keen to see the response from Steeda. Not much help other than a little personal experience to share. Fearless Leader is quite correct. Dashpot adjustment will do the trick. I used SCT's ProRacer program to tune my '98 GT and took care of things like: adjusting the dashpot...

    FRPP/Shelby Axle Girdle Diff Cover - Panhard Relocation

    Macman45, Ford Racing "P" springs so 1" lower than stock. I agree that your Sportlines (2" drop) are the difference between needing a PH relo bracket and not. I did not consider the springs affecting clearance of the PH rod. This would be a good geometry quiz question for the highschool...

    FRPP/Shelby Axle Girdle Diff Cover - Panhard Relocation

    Macman45, Good work! Thanks for posting an update. I was wondering how your modification worked (just fine, apparently). Oddly, my BMR panhard bar clears the FRPP cover by "a fat 1/4-inch" without a PH bar relo bracket. I suppose there are some geometrical differences between our model...
