Re: Bleeding T-Bird/Taurus calipers

Please follow up if you get anywhere with SSBC. I too looked for a banjo bolt with a bleeder but couldn't find anything in the correct thread pitch.

Re: Project Shell Game (Also moved over from Merkursport)

Is that a Mustang 5.0L AC compressor? It fit the XR bracket? I'm looking to add AC back to my XR. I don't have the original compressor, but I think I have my 5.0 compressor in a box somewhere.

Are the VW struts shorter than XR?

There's 2 holes
I guess it would work up front, but the rear would need to be offset from the middle between the studs because obviously there's a pair of giant holes. oh well.

wheel bolt pattern change drill guide

Saw this on the Fiesta ST forum. What do you guys think? It allows one to redrill for 4x100 or 4x114.3.

Re: Bart Wheels

They will be able 25mm-35mm out from where they should be. 4" backspacing on a 7" wheel is 0mm offset. 25mm-35mm offset is acceptable for these cars.

Re: Camber eccentric bolts, rear beam, and nylon STA bushing

I wouldn't use eccentrics in combination with solid bushings. You really do want those bushing axes in line if you've got the STAs solid-mounted to the beam. What have you found to be optimal for camber and toe in the rear? If I'm going to have to get shims made up for the carriers or slot/weld/ben...

Re: Camber eccentric bolts, rear beam, and nylon STA bushing

Before you embark upon that effort, I suggest that you replace the diff mount, the stock mount isn't great when new and a sagging mount will affect the suspension. The new MC2 mount is a nice piece That was done a long time ago. Also have the powerflex beam bushing. The only OEM bushings left in th...

Camber eccentric bolts, rear beam, and nylon STA bushings

I'm looking to correct the camber and toe that my XR has in the rear and provide some amount of adjustability. I have seen the shims available from overseas, but I think some eccentric bolts at the pivots would be better as it would be more adjustment than a static shim at the carrier. My only conce...

Re: ideal offset for 17x7.5 wheels on xr4ti

I think you would be fine with a 17x7.5 et38. I run a 17x8 et38 now and it is a hair away from contacting the strut body up front. Actually, two of then are bent and were contacting, so i had to move them to the rear. A 17x7.5 et38 will have 6mm more clearance on the inside than I currently have, so...
