Last owner was an hard and how to fix?


Jun 9, 2003
So the last owner of my stang decided to torque down 2 of the lugnuts one one of the tires until it stripped the lug nut and bolt.

So what do i need to fix it? Can i nab some parts from the junkyard from a 4 cylinder?

How do i go about fixing it?

Anyone else have to find pervious owners mistakes to fix?

This guy wasn't a welder.....weld bead on the exhaust on it is atleast half an inch thick all around at the joints.

so why did i buy a used mustang again? so i could fix the dumb stuff they screwed up?

bah just getting tired of finding more and more stupid stuff gone wrong

of so help me fix this if you can

or u could rethread the old one... I had a warped nut, and it screwed up the threads on one of my bolts. but a nice guy at Speedy rethreaded it and gave me a new lug-nut for free when my dad took it in cuz the brakes fell apart. lol
I had some problems with both of my stangs. on my 69 the front end was from three different cars, rear was from a pinto, he drove around w/ no air cleaner ( :nice: ). my 87 supposidly had a 4cyl 5speed, drilled for the hood pins to close in twords the radiator so hood prop rod doesnt fit.(cervini 1.5" cowl, and im sure there is other stuff i just havent found yet. So my next stang will be from an original or second owner, and bone stock. then hopefully i will have less problems.

:bang: blasted previous owners :mad:
Front or back? If you mean the back, yeah the axleshafts from a four banger are the same as a v8's. On the front the rotors are different depending on the year. You could just get a new rotor from a parts house...
