Doing a few things to my '05 Mustang

Post by Eric21477 on Thu May 24, 2012 8:38 pm

First let me say that until last weekend, my car has been sitting in the garage collecting dust and spider webs for about 3 months. It was needing a new set of tires, but other things in life had to come first. I made a stop in at Late Model Restoration last Fri and left with a few goodies.....it's a good and bad thing having the Mustang parts place less than 10mins from the house Very Happy

Upgraded my rims and tires from 17x9 and 255/50/17 all around to 18x9 255/45/18 up front and 18x10 285/40/18 out back. Gone are the black Bullit's, they have been replaced by deep dish chrome FR500's.





I also picked up an J&M adjustable panhard bar to center up the rear axle after lowering it...4 years ago Embarassed Much nicer that the stock piece in every way, and very easy to adjust. Only one piece left on the rear end that is stock, but I will wait until J&M makes the panhard bar brace so everything is from one place.





J&M caster/camber plates for up front are up next. When the 05's came out they were a pain to align a dropped car since the strut towers are not slotted. Shops were taking dremels to them and slotting the holes, but there was no way I was having that. I have been running camber bolts on the struts to compensate for the neg camber, but now these will straighten all that up. I'm hoping to get them installed this weekend and will snap some pics for you guys.
