I'm willing to bet the 19x10's will also fit on the front, regardless of what their website says.
I'd try a 10" on the front (I had 19x10's on the front when they said they wouldn't fit).
And if they fit fine, I'd look to just run 10" all around.
You could do a 275/40/19 all around - great size!
Yeah, about that...Already bought the 255 & 285's . How heavy is the steering on 275's?

Good news is American Muscle got back to me already and is going to send 2 replacements

I run my car with the electric steering mode set to Sport all the time, so it's always a little in the stiff side. I honestly haven't noticed any differences anytime I changed tires, and I've had 18s, 19s and 20s on the front. Maybe the electrical steering compensates for stuff like that, I don't know.

Good to hear they got you all set.

installed new rear sway bay bushings chasing down a squeak.

Pulled out all my carpet last night. The padding under the carpet was completely saturated. I don't know how long the cowl grommets have been leaking but apparently it's been for awhile. Rust on most of the floor but thankfully the only part rusted through is the driver's side floorboard.

Now I gotta figure out the best way to clean out all that rust and patch the floor. Sigh...

Just ordered a new Boss 302 rear sway bar with new links, I guess it's the only way it comes.
My Track Pack stock rear is over 8 years old, it's starting to make some noise, I figured for $167 shipped it's a nice way to update it.
Ordered through Tasca. They had the lowest shipped price I could find. AM showed it for $169 but out of stock.

And...Done. Time consuming, but worth it.

Now all accessories, i.e., line lock, gauges, shift light, etc., are ran through this box. No more "add a circuits" in the SJB or elsewhere. One spliced switched 12V and one ground from the car. Still have 6 ground and 3 power posts for the future as needed. Left enough slack that it can be pulled down to the center of the foot well for access.

Finally got the driver's side header out. When I first looked at doing the job I couldn't imagine that I was ever limber enough to install these things. Good grief, has there ever been a time when SBF headers had easily accessible bolts? I've been busting nuckles on these things for 45 years.

Now if I can resist the urge to get the diamond burr after those ports, things would probably move forward. I shoulda started the OCD meds before I started this project.

Both my wife's and mine got their share of fresh Amsoil 5W50 oil and new Motorcraft filters today.
On mine I tried to remove the cats to inspect them and see if they're breaking up (started getting a tinny rattle on accel).
Harder to do since I tack-welded the back of the cat pipes to the H-pipe, and the H-pipe was tack-welded to the rear pipes when it was installed. So I have to break or cut tack welds. And some of these tack welds look like full-on weld spots. After fighting with it for a while I decided my exhaust project/repair will have to be finished another weekend. I hate exhaust work, by the way.
And after this is all done I still need to put in a new thermostat since the lower-temp one in there started popping codes at the end of last year. Yaaaayyyy ...
Yes, it's filthy.

This weekend I got the new tires mounted, inspection done, registration renewed and then for the first time in months took the wife and baby out for a spin!

Now I just need to find the time to do the front control arms and underdrive pulleys!

Lol yeah I built all the shelves in the garage, and they're done in such a way that any plumbing pipes can still be worked on, if needed.
Also built more shelving for the large canvas tent out back, including repurposing some pallets for garden tools storage (thanks Pinterest for the ideas, lol)
