    diff oil: 80w90 or 75w140?

    Thanks. I'm thinking I'll just split the difference and go with the severe gear 75-110. I've read on here that with amsoil one needs to add friction modifier, but on Amsoil's page for their own modifier it says "AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes do not require this additive. ". Which is it? P.S...

    diff oil: 80w90 or 75w140?

    Thanks! I don't anticipate being serious about it anytime soon. Just want to do 2-3 a year and have fun.

    diff oil: 80w90 or 75w140?

    Gotcha, thanks. I have not yet rebuilt the diff, though I'm sure that's in my future. I'm guesing the 75w140 would have some marginal parasitic affect, but beyond that is it going to stand up better to the heat on those few track days?

    diff oil: 80w90 or 75w140?

    I've seen folks state both 80w90 and 75w140. Which is the best choice? If it matters, I have 4.56s and this car is solely for backroads bashing with (hopefully) a few track days per year sprinkled in going forward. And past that, any reason to pick one or the other between RP, Amsoil, and Red...

    Terminator Steering Rack (How to get it!)

    Yeah as much as I like the idea of it, I'd rather put that money towards a coilover conversion or something. I really like the steering on my M5 and was hoping to get closer to that weight and feel, but the ol' yelosnk isn't worth a $1K (plus shipping both ways, I assume) steering rack. I was...

    Terminator Steering Rack (How to get it!)

    What timing, they just responded. Good news is they can, bad news is it's ~$1K and a 6-8wk turnaround.

    Terminator Steering Rack (How to get it!)

    Guess we'll find out, I emailed em.

    Terminator Steering Rack (How to get it!)

    I asked him if the 99-04 GT vs. Cobra racks had the same torsion bars and he responded: "I’m 95% certain that they do, but in any case it doesn’t matter. Both racks have the same assist curve. This is the relationship between the applied steering torque and the amount of force applied to the...

    Terminator Steering Rack (How to get it!)

    Are you sure? If I go to their page on doing an SN-95 rack upgrade on a Foxbody, they seem to be pretty clear that the Cobra racks are better than the 99-04 GT rack. lower number = higher desirability.

    prothane bushing install issue

    I'm going to guess it's pretty normal, as this picture from BMR's site seems to show the same thing: the mounting point on the arm is forward of the mounting point on the sway bar. I'm going to guess it has to do with design constraints on a tubular a-arm with spring pockets.

    prothane bushing install issue

    I actually have the prothane links already. Again, I'm looking at it w/o any links on, so the height of the links isn't the cause. It just seems like BMR has the mounting points somewhat off. We'll see when I get it all back together, I guess.

    prothane bushing install issue

    thanks, though I'm not sure if that's it in this case here. I don't actually have the end links in yet*, this was just something I noticed while the arms were at normal-ish position with the sway bar level. I don't think there's a way for the bar to remain level and have the a-arm mounting...

    prothane bushing install issue

    I tried squishing them back in with a c clamp and impact gun and no dice. I'm convinced the shells on these arms are thicker than on the original Ford arms. I also considered shaving them, but that didn't sit well with me and I was afraid the added pressure on the inner sleeve would lead to...

    front caliper bracket bolt torque spec?

    gotcha, thanks

    front caliper bracket bolt torque spec?

    thanks. It's been a couple weeks since I took them out, but I don't even remember a caliper to bracket bolt. my memory is the caliper just fits into the bracket and is secured with the pin. Am I misremembering?
