    Best upgrade I've done (Shocks)

    That suits my cruising style. On the strength of this thread I've just ordered a 1 1/8 front and 7/8 rear sway bars, to replace the basic front and NO rear sway bar. Should be an improvement along with the new excel shocks I'm running.

    Best upgrade I've done (Shocks)

    Great thread, on a really good wedge site. I have new KYB excel shocks fitted, they came as part of a full kit and look like the cheap option. My Question is - would KYB gas-a-just be a much better improvement over the excels ?

    5 speed conversion ?

    Hello all. I have it in mind to convert my 72 Mach1 302ci 3 speed top loader to a 5 speed and have seen this advert over here in the UK. Will this trans fit my car ? "Borg Warner 5 spd (Tremec T5) manual gearbox very soon if anyone is interested.. Its virtually brand new, as its only covered...

    Front sits too high

    Will do. I'll take the springs off and try the half coil at a time route and see what I come up with. Many thanks once again.

    Front sits too high

    Excellent Mustang7173. Thank you very much for all the well informed leg work you've done on this subject. There is quite a difference between the 4L and 4K springs. For a start there is nearly a one coil difference between the two springs. Mine being the 4K eight coils. Which begs the...

    Front sits too high

    Mustang7173, That's a cool posting with all the details. It nearly makes sense to me although I am not sure of a couple of things under "1972 mustangs listings". From what I can make out, my car is either '63R(N32)' or '63R(N33)' My car comes with PS only so following the graph down is either...

    Front sits too high

    Would my car have come with stock or competition suspension ? It's a Mach 1 running a 3 speed and 302 and only the small front anti roll bar. I'm guessing this would be stock ?

    Front sits too high

    Have seen these 8 coils on ebay, advertised by LMM, for 71-73 302 351 cars. Could be the answer to the problem ? Link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380464446508&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en

    Front sits too high

    I have emailed LMM and they asked for measurements and numbers of coils I'm running 15x8 rear and 15x7 front. Gap at the rear, top of tyre to arch is 2" (I'm happy with that) but front gap is 4 1/2" ?? There are 9 coils on front springs.

    Front sits too high

    Probably the best move with hindsight. I have sent LMM an email with both photos attached to see what they suggest. Then I will go from there. Thanks.

    Front sits too high

    Thank you all for your replies, some funny :) Just looked back over the order and the full suspension kit I bought from Laurel Mtn mustangs is clearly marked as SB. However like has been explained, there are so many variations, it could mean anything. Will probably wait till everything is...

    Front sits too high

    Thank you, I am two years into a full restoration. This has had a couple of months to settle but it looks like it's not going to settle as much as expected. I don't thing the screen and carpet will make much difference some how :)) Another angle.

    Front sits too high

    Yes it has made me wonder if I was sent the wrong springs and have big block springs instead ?

    Front sits too high

    Hi, I have renewed all the suspension on my 302 Mach1. Nearly all the parts are back on the car, all except the front screen and finishing the interior. However the car still looks high on the front end. You can see by the pic how high it is sitting. Will this settle given time or will I have...

    Interesting.

    Car starts and runs lovely. First time in 25 years. There is a part of a loom that plugs into the engine loom. What is it ? It is a four point plug, two wires go to what looks like a switch and the other two plugs loop round on each other, using the same wire. If I disconnect it the ignition...

    Excellent, I've switched the wires. I may be back for more advice if I get any problems. Thankyou.

    Interesting.

    Hi, I've put the harness's back in the car. The job went well. Most connections are self explanetory, although I just need to make sure I am connecting other wires up properly. Doesn't help being colour blind lol. Have i connected up the starter solenoid ok? I've put the + cable and two...
