  1. Finally got it out! There was one more bolt hidden under the dash that I missed. Now I can put the roller bearing kit on it.
  2. Hmm, I have the column removed and the brake pedal off but it still doesn't want to move much. I was hoping not to have to take off the dash.
  3. You guys were right about the nut. My next question, is there anything else holding that assembly in place? I removed all fasteners from the firewall, and the bolts going up into the dash but it doesn't really want to move. It wiggles slightly like it's loose, but it won't come out. Is it secured by something hidden in the dash too? I have to be missing something.
  4. Ah, that would make sense. I didn't think to check the brake booster. Unfortunately I'll be working for the next few days but I'll check on my next day off.
  5. Hey guys, been a while since I've posted on here. Got a new job, got married, and now I have some free time and money to start working on the car again! I just bought a rebuilt T5 trans and the modern driveline kit to swap from an auto to manual. I'm in the process of trying to remove the petal assembly to remove the old bushings and put in the roller bearing kit. The problem is that I'm left scratching my head due to this one bolt located on the top left of the assembly. It appears to be almost half moon shape and I'm not sure if that's stock and not sure how to remove it. I started trying to remove the bushings with the assembly in place but there isn't really enough room to get the rotary tool in there to grind them. Any suggestions?
  6. Sorry, but I actually sold it a while ago.

    Breaking shocks?

    Just thought I'd leave an update. Installed the new spring perches and so far no broken shocks! I can definitely feel a difference from the old ones. The car feels, I guess you could say more solid and takes turns much better.

    Breaking shocks?

    Well, roller perches it is then I guess. I stopped by the local mustang parts guy and he has them in stock for $199 for the pair. Just have to get a day off to change it all out.

    Breaking shocks?

    I know the front has been lowered but it was like that when I got it. I was thinking it may be the spring perches. Guess its time to dish out some cash for the roller perches?
  13. I have a rather strange problem. About a week ago my passenger side shock broke at the base where it bolts into the upper control arm. I took it off to replace it and it looked like part of the flange where it branches out into 2 studs to bolt into the control arm got stressed, bent, and finally broke leaving only 1 of the 2 bolts holding the shock to the control arm. I just drove back from Santa Cruz today and its making that same rattling noise it was making when it broke the first shock. (haven't climbed under to check yet but I think that's the problem) I replaced both front shocks about a week ago. What could be causing it to destroy shocks? When I put the new ones on I didn't notice anything strange or broken and I tightened them up when the full weight of the car was on them. Could it be a problem with the spring perches?
  14. I'm selling the right (passenger side) splash shield that goes on the back of the headlight bucket. I ordered both but found my original for the right. Asking $30 + shipping.
