I went with UPR I’ve talked to a hand full of people with 9 to 10 second cars and they say UPR is the way to go so I listened and honestly I’m not disappointed at all. I went their full chrome moly kit. If you guys are interested call them up and talk to Steve he helped me out. And something else that I noticed their shirts are super comfy lolA tubular k member is definitely on my list of things to do.
It probably won’t be for a year or so though. Just got done blowing a wad of cash lol.
Which manufacturer did you go with?
Oh yeah like I bought the car I heard some odd clunks and a bunch of weird sounds so I said let me just get the kit and tighten this baby upYeah, that thing is a hand full for sure! I just took mine out. Unfortunately it's going back in stock, but I pulled it for other reasons. Great time to address any other suspension issues you might have on the front end.
Thanks man glad I found this forum place had a lot of info and especially as a new owner I’ve never worked on fords or V8s so this is all new but I think I’m doing pretty good. And it’d be cool to meet someone from the forum on here and yeah I have the full kit K member / A arms / coilovers / my car already came with caster camber plates when I bought it so i didn’t need to order UPRs caster camber plates & for the rear end I have the UPR upper and lower control arms for now and the car is lowered on HR springs in the rear.Another florida boy! Welcome to stangnet.
We've got a number of members from florida here. Bound to be someone close to you if you need hands on help.
Good deal on swapping out the k-member. I assume you swapped out the control arms as well. I guess that possibly leads into coilovers too?
Have you started on the rear end yet?
Damn you are right I just checked around, well first time for everything time to take it out when I get home and redo everything again It looks like you have offset steering rack bushings. If so I think they are installed upside down. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the offset should be at the bottom to raise the rack up. In the pic it looks like they are lowering the rack.
I’m using offset rack bushings to help with the bumpsteer since I also have the extreme bumpsteer kit from UPR as well but I am waiting to install them at the shop so I can do a proper alignment right after. But it’s good to know things like that makes me feel that much better about UPRI have upr's moly k, arms and coilovers on two of my cars currently and one of those is my daily driver which sees all types of weather and road conditions. zero issues just take your time with the install and replace all the little things now while you have it down and apart. Also why are you using offset steering rack bushings?
