    WANTED Actively looking for the best FMJ I can find

    On the non-Mopar side, I’d suggest the ‘88-‘93 T-birds. They’re usually overlooked when it comes to cars that are roomy inside and have a v8.

    Let’s get it right this time. (‘87 Dip project)

    Time for a very minor update! in another thread I shared that I got the FFI Subframe bushings in, finally. AND, I finally got ahold of the most '80's tach ever. The Sunpro Power Curve Tach! I'm working on ideas for the rest of the gauge cluster surround, because I wanna go digital with it...

    Solid K frame bushings

    Well, I finally got home to drive it over the weekend. Even with the rest of the suspension being a bit tired I could tell there was a difference. Getting the new isolators is probably the best thing we can do for these cars.

    Solid K frame bushings

    No, I had a brain fart and didn’t get a hoist. I need to buy one anyway. It’s supposed to rain all day today, so I’ll do that in the morning. and I’ve already resigned myself to using the cutoff wheels regardless.

    Solid K frame bushings

    well, I'm halfway done, the front ones are set, but the rear ones are giving me a bit of trouble since the K-frame isn't lowering enough even with the bolts all the way out. And yes, I did try to do the driver's side first. I did finally break out the dremel after buying new cutoff wheels for...

    Solid K frame bushings

    Awesome. I was actually about to DM you on Instagram about it but I posted here first. I’ll let y’all know how my attempt at this goes.

    Solid K frame bushings

    Just double-checking, but do the FFI Isolators still need the lower isolators? Or does that large washer just replace it altogether?

    the Three-pedal swap

    That’s good news at least. Now I just need to find a T56 or a TR6060 that’s not gonna cost me a kidney.
