Your right Dave, my only point was spending tons of money to get that car where it needs to be just to be a safe driver. I do like the idea of you learning new skills, especially with your father. My dad wasn't around for stuff like that.You’re fifteen and you get to work on this with your father. That is mint. I wish my boys would’ve shown that kind of interest.
This will be a great car for you to learn a bunch of new skills on.
Go for it little brother. It sounds like your old man has a bit of experience, but if you run into a problem that you can’t figure out, hit us up, combined we’ve done everything to a fox body.
BTW, I’m more than a little partial to that ‘83-‘84 4i’d nose. See if one pops up eventually that you can trade stuff for. An ‘84 with the fog lights would be very nice.
Don’t take that time with your Dad for granted. My dad got me into cars, and much like you, I started when I was young with a car in my garage before I had my license.I work on my dad with cars all the time. I didn't want his help on this car. I can use advice but I want to figure it out. I have been working on older mustangs for a long time. This isn't much different. I hope I can do this by myself
Remove rear sway bar. Unbolt the shocks and quads (if 1983 had them) and then lower rear down by center with a jack. Don't stretch the brake line. When you get it low enough. Push down on one side and remove the spring by handOh also any advice about taking rear springs out?
