Re: Shopping for the XR4Ti for Christmas

Hi all,

Thanks for the reply. Are the solid bushings alloy of some sort? Not poly I would guess. Do they use the original bolt or need the longer ones offered by mc2?

Cheers

Re: Shopping for the XR4Ti for Christmas

I think I need blinker fluid as well... :wink: Sorry, standard mechanics joke when wanting to confuse folks. I think I am now good to go at the moment. I am really looking forward to feeling the difference when these are all installed in the car. Oh, I forgot, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all! :D I have enjoy...

Hi all,

Anyone used removable paint on wheels?

I am thinking of trying this as a temporary option before I decide what to do long term about wheels. The paint is partially rubber based, it seems.

Re: Anyone like their Chromebook?

Another possible solution is to get an older but still good laptop that had Windows XP or 7 on it and use Linux. I think some of us mentioned that before. I have updated a couple of older laptops for a friend doing that. I used Open Suse 15 with the KDE desktop on his 64 bit dual core CPU/2.5GHZ chi...

Re: Anyone DD theirs?

Hi all, I used electronic cleaner spray on all the terminals in the rear tail light wiring and then used dielectric grease on all of them to make a connection that would not corrode again. I did that in the main fuse box, all pigtails and the battery terminals as well. I am lucky that my car was ind...

Re: Cougar wheels on XR4Ti?

Hi all, I saw a 2002 Cougar with wheels on it in a junkyard and was thinking they looked nice. They are cheap but the 15" 5 spoke design was what attracted me. I did not like the BBS style 15" OEM design (too hard to clean) and my car has the phone dial style 14" wheels at this time. It is not so ea...

Re: Cougar wheels on XR4Ti?

Hi all, I was not thinking of the studs or bolts and will certainly look at that. As for offset, if the 5.5" rim is 41mm offset and a 6" rim is 45mm offset the 6" rim would be almost but not quite, at the same point in horizontal space in relation to the struts and calipers, I think. 6mm is sloppy 1...

I have found some five spoke 2002 Cougar wheels that are 15x6 size with 45mm offset and wonder if anyone has used them?

Re: Stock Diff Bearings

Hi all,

The differential bearings and seals should be readily available from the suppliers advertising in here or from a parts store, from either Timken, National or others.

Just a thought.
