  1. Alignment after rear wheel bearing replacement?

    Sounds like you need to disconnect a few arms and pivot the entire knuckle downward in order to access the 4x bolts that secure the hub to the knuckle. After doing this on both sides, I'd imagine the rear end would probably benefit from an alignment? I am about to do this job but just got a...
  2. Rear trunk paint bubbling

    Is this the same issue that a lot of folks are having with the hood? Can't tell if this is bubbling or just a shitty job with the sealant that appears to go down this section of the trunk.
  3. Steeda Billet Mount Failure?

    Anyone else experience this? I’m on a 2,400 mile cross country trip and just disassembled my entire rear interior hunting this down. Having my wife in the trunk finally traced it to inside the wheel well. Everything looked good until I disassembled my top mount to find this. My car sounds like...
  4. Front hub dust covers

    They’re massive and preventing me from running center caps on my front wheels. Can I rip them off? I’m talking about the plastic black thing on the front hubs. If my wheel/center cap is making a good seal I should be okay right? My rear ones are spotless internally but fronts are gross. Lug...
  5. Tune before 2400 mile road trip

    Been dying to get tuned for the longest time. I’m moving from Michigan to California soon and I’m wondering if I should take the plunge before or after the trip? Thinking about a Lund flex fuel tune. Primarily looking for feedback on whether or not you had to datalog and work out kinks for a...
  6. Replaced a bad sway bar end link this weekend

    Y'all might remember me from various threads complaining about sounds and NVH after installing a ton of aftermarket parts. Eventually things settled down but there was always a very slight noise once and a while that didn't seem appropriate. Getting my alignment done the other day, the tech...
  7. Moving Sale! Detroit area.

    Hey Y'all, I have two sets of wheel for sale in the classified forum. I am located in the Metro Detroit area. OEM Performance Pack Wheels & Tires: https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104876 Winter Wheels & Tires (Blizzaks)...
  8. [Detroit, Michigan] Winter Wheel & Tires setup - 19x8.5", 255/40R19

    Hello all. Moving to California and will no longer need these. These are OEM wheels from a 2010-2012 S197-era Mustang that I bought from an acquaintance who works at Ford here in Michigan. The wheels are 19 x 8.5" – they will clear the Brembo brakes on a PP with 25mm spacers (included with...
  9. [Detroit, Michigan] 2016 PP Wheels & Sumitomo HTR Z III Tires

    Hello all, For sale are my 2016 performance pack wheels and tires. I recently upgraded to a forged set and I will be moving from Michigan to California for work ... so I need to get rid of these puppies. The tires have probably 5-6,000 miles on them. They're basically new and have tons of...
  10. Steering wheel upgrade

    The steering wheel is lame on the first-gen S550. It’s too thin, too big (circumference) and the material sucks. The first thing I noticed when sitting in the refresh last year was how much better the steering wheel felt. It’s thicker and made with better materials. Has anyone upgraded...
  11. Alignment Review

    Lowered on all Steeda bits. I had the shop install the Steeda subframe alignment pieces as well as loosen and re-torque all the bushing parts on the suspension - i.e. "clocking your bushings" My request was 1.5 neg camber front and rear 1/16 toe front 0 toe rear (ultimately went with...
  12. Couple of tuner device questions

    Thinking that now is as good a time as ever to get a flex fuel E85/93 octane tune. I've been searching around and there seem to be a lot of great tuner companies ... but my question is around devices. What devices work with a Mac? I don't mind running a VM to do software updates to the...
  13. Arcane Stellar – a Fully Forged, Motorsport-inspired Monoblock designed with a friend

    Many months ago, when I had my blizzak's on and Michigan was still dumping snow... I started to think about the coming spring/summer season and began to plan some of the modifications I was interested in making to my GT. My good friend Alex operates a full-service wheel customization and...
  14. Wheels/Suspension Makeover (picture heavy)

    Hey Y'all, I just got finished with a mega suspension and wheel/tire makeover. This all started during the winter where I knew that I wanted to start prepping for a set of aftermarket forged wheels. I was unhappy with the rake from the BMR SP080 springs so I started to do a ton of research...
  15. NVH or Clunk from Camber Plates

    Anyone else experience this? I feel like the ride is a lot harsher than it should be. Before you ask, everything is tight. The suspension has been looked over by Steeda technicians in-person. They even replaced the front struts and reinstalled everything in the shop. Moving slowly out of my...
  16. Steeda Camber Plates + Springs + Struts install problems/questions

    The instructions actually suck for the Steeda gear. So far the best resource has been the LMR installation video. First issue: camber plates. There is no mention of how to use the little inserts for camber plates... without them everything is loosey goosey so I figure they need to be used...
  17. Bolt/fastener kit for suspension installation?

    Most of the suspension bolts on the S550 are torque-to-yield and technically should only be used once. I am doing a big project this coming weekend replacing struts/shocks/springs as well as front strut mounting plates as well as the rear shock mounts. Is there a kit available with all the...
  18. 285/40 vs 285/35 on 19x10+35

    Lowered on BMR springs right now, soon to be Steeda Sport Linear. A friend of mine is custom-machining some wheels for me. 19x10 et 35 seems to be the popular configuration for a square setup. Now I am trying to decide on tire. I was planning 285/40 to remain as close to OEM outside diameter...
  19. Caliper overhang measurement on Performance Pack w/ Brembo

    Does anyone happen to know the exact measurement of this? I’m getting a custom set of wheels machined and the engineer needs this data. I did some rough measurements but want a sanity check.
  20. Thinking about ditching BMR springs

    I have a PP vehicle on BMR SP080 springs. Handling is fine, I hate the rake and uneven height. The rear is considerably taller than the front. My game plan right now is to ditch the SP080. Kelly from BMR said their springs probably aren't the way to go if I am more interested in aesthetics...
