  1. So TCP is at a complete loss of why this is happening on my car. They are calling up a guy who has installed a lot of these systems and ask his advice on it. Does anyone have the dimensions of the lower control arm/engine mount should be located on the frame and the specs for the stutrod frame suppose to mount. I want to measure these out and make sure mine are not off from factory spec. thank you Ryan
  2. No i havent and no word back from TCP as of monday. Ill give them a call tomorrow morning, they say they open at 7am PST but i think they really get in about 730PST
  3. Good idea RPM, Both sides are giving the same issue currently so nothing is off from one side to the other
  4. The strut rod is measureing almost 20" in lenght (verified correct with TCP) Lower control arm is 15 3/4" from center of eyelet mount to ball joint ( verified by TCP) makes me wonder if the factory installed my strut rod mounts wrong??? I have not brought this up to TCP yet, but cut off 1/4" of the strut rod off on a band saw to gain the needed space.
  5. RPM Yes it is from the strut face, but the LCA is not square/center with the mount location as you can see in the photos. I am at a loss since this frame work metal is all factory original. I do wish i had some OEM spec measurements to work off to verify all factory mounts are correct.
  6. ALAN_MAC yes i have inspected all boxes and bag and parts for part numbers and even measured them out. TCP tech seems to be stumped on the issue and said that this has happened a handful of times. they are trying to sort it out
  7. FVIKE ive installed them according to their bag labels, i did not inspect their actual stamp. I will do right now!
  8. I purchased the Total Control Product front coil over suspension kit. I've watch the 2 youtube videos a couple times each and have gone over the instructions with a fine tooth comb. The issue i have is the strut rod they supplied is pushing my lower control arm too far back toward the rear. Ive tried pulling my camber all the way forward and maxed out the strut rod to the minimum length and still does not line up the lower control arm. I cannot even get the verishock to go inside the aluminum mount. Ive measured everything out, check and double checked part numbers and everything seems to be correct. TCP right now is kind of shrugging their shoulders as they don't have an answer for me. All the metal on this car is factory original
  9. channel locks on the mount and a plumbers soldering torch heat up the metal mount on low heat while applying a little pulling away pressure with the channel locks ( dont want to get too hot may thermal shock the windshield and blow up) once the the glue warms up it will pop off with ease. any additional clean up with a razor blade on flat with some soap water

  12. So the holiday shopping season is upon us. A lot of companies try to earn your business by offering deals and savings on their products. List out the company and savings on this thread, if you know of any, to help out each other but parts for our cars.
  13. thank you guys for all the great feed back... sounds like both are great products and would not be disappointed in either one of them!
  14. which suspension product do your recommend and why total control products from coil over system or street and track coil over i see they are both close on pricing just dont know what way to go
  15. i see you are using a 30' stanley tape, i will use my stanley tape and see if i get a different reading.
  16. Man i cannot get over how much of a difference between my TMI sport seats and the reupholstered seat still. This is what my set up is factory seat pans original floors dynamat extreme acc mass back carpet 1970 high back seat frames TMI sport seat foam and upholstery head liner rods on the upper holes to gain head room * i went with the 70 seat frames due to the back rest level issues of bending. ryan
  17. the dynamat is only 1/8" thickness and would play little on the height issue.
  18. Brian Conway If i measure from the bottom of the seat and follow the slop of the back rest (as it looks like in your photo) my seat measurement comes out to be 32 1/4" +3" for the tape body. So that is a total of 35 1/4" from seat cushion to headliner. I have dynamat extreme on the floors, mass back carpet, TMI sport seat foam and upholstery. The headliner rods are set on the upper holes (that should have given me a additional 1/2" of space). Only thing i can figure is that they need to break in a bit
  19. so i finally installed my TMI sport seats into my 69 mustang fastback and really am shocked how high i sit inside of the car. i have maybe 1" to 1/2" head clearance to headliner. Is this typical to our cars?
  20. tough one... i know my replacement windshield came with an odd mirror mount. I had to remove it and add a new universal mount to use my mirror with ( i am using a Gentex auto dim mirror, compass, and homelink) To remove use a acetylene torch to heat up the mirror wedge (do not heat the glass or do it in cold temps, this may cause the glass to crack) While holding the mirror mount with a set of angle pliers. After a few seconds of heating start applying turning pressure (like you were unscrewing a bolt). once the metal mirror mount pops off remove heat from glass area. after glue dries use a razor blade to remove excess glue on glass.
