    10R80 Mustang Down...Again

    Sounds like they did not fill it, or repair it correctly on that rebuild, BUT do you have any proof on that matter? If not, my guess is you're best just unloading the car and waiting for a Mach1 which will have extra coolers and is redesigned. But I agree with the comments below about Ford...

    10R80 Mustang Down...Again

    So sorry to hear that, brother. I had a 2018 with issues (strut), two dealers could not pin point problem and never fixed it. I fixed it in my driveway in three hours after pinpointing the damper failed internally (rattling strut rod). Cost me $144 is parts to replace and as good as new, but...

    2021MY Mustang Facelift spied again?

    Ah, I didn't see the connection to the Ford source, thanks! I only saw Steeda's posting of the chart. I'll read and research more closely.

    2021MY Mustang Facelift spied again?

    I'd love to get the handling pack with the Cup2 tires, but I hear they are not street friendly picking up every bit of debris. Do you drive your Cup2s on the street at all? That, and I want an automatic, so that kills the mach 1 handling pack for me.

    2021MY Mustang Facelift spied again?

    You seriously think tires are meaningless minutia and are cheap? I get it's easy to just switch a set of tires, but even just replacing front two tires, would cost $500-600 for the tires and $50-100 for mounting...if that's cheap to you, then that's awesome? However, not so much for me. More...

    2021MY Mustang Facelift spied again?

    Yeah, I saw this on Steeda's site. I don't know where they got this information. I am skeptical based on the known change in wheel size, but no change in tire size. Haven't found any other sources or pix that show the base Mach 1's tires size. Hope to catch the car itself at Ford National in...

    2021MY Mustang Facelift spied again?

    Seems it's got the 255/275 tires of the GT PP1/Bullitt packages, but the front fascia and rear spoiler of the Mach 1. I think it would be a slap in the fascia to Mach 1 owners if the GT gets the same front end. I am still hoping to find out what the tire size is on the "base" Mach 1...fender...

    Here's the 2021 Mach 1!!

    I see all the dislikes and criticism, and I get it. Much of what guys want is subjective...even more power is a subjective want. I especially get the disappointment about no shaker, but technology has changed and such a kit would be more cosmetic than anything else, IMO. I really like the car...

    Here's the 2021 Mach 1!!

    I'm gonna call it, and I know there's plenty speculation on price, but in short, I think folks will be shocked at the higher prices than expected. I do not think a Mach1 will be available for anything under $50K. And, with the demise of the $60K GT350, the price point up to the GT500 leaves a...

    Front PP1 Strut Failure

    Okay, another update. The damper rod operates irregularly and sometimes extends, some times does not. Also, is super easy to compress the rod. The damper fluid sounds very different sloshing around inside...like squirting and gushing sounds. I am assuming seals and/or the damper piston have...

    Front PP1 Strut Failure

    So, upon further investigation on my own, the damper of the strut assembly appears bad. I tore apart the strut components and the damper rod rattles so awfully....cannot be normal. Have no idea how safe it may be either as it had been progressively getting worse. As I search, I cannot easily...

    295/35-19 Square GTPP (Pics Inside)

    Did you, do you, have any strut noises/failures. I have a failed PP1 front strut and one theory from one dealer is it may be the larger tire up front.

    Front PP1 Strut Failure

    Okay, I've posted elsewhere on this matter under the Suspension Topic, for obvious reason, but so far, this has been an epic fail of Ford and its dealers (two of 'em). On May 3rd, I noted a metallic rattle in the front left of the car. Thought the wheel lugs were loose. Did my investigative...

    Tire size change,speedo fix,hows everyone addressing it?

    I agree the speedo is livable, but know that you may be adding miles (pulling value off) your car if you go with a smaller circumference tire! I cannot live with that. I went from PP1 tires, to a 295/35/19 (GT350 front tire), squared set-up. I tried to have Ford calibrate, cannot do it they...

    Steeda rattle/clunking after install

    Well sure, not the entire warranty, but that's not what I said either, just that the warranty relevant to your part failure was not applicable due to aftermarket struts is not appropriate IMO. Unless there's other details there. As much as guys mod their Mustangs, this kind of action by the...

    Steeda rattle/clunking after install

    Whoaaaaa, the dealer told you your warranty was void due to aftermarket struts??!?! What struts did you have on there? I am thinking the dealer did you wrong. I have not really heard that modding Mustangs, especially with just struts, voids the warranty...maybe massive power upgrades, but a...

    Steeda rattle/clunking after install

    Okay, I got a good update from another Ford dealership, in their parts department. Other than I confirmed my first dealer completely lied to me about parts availability, I want to post something that you all will care about than me just venting. Though I may vent some more. At any rate...

    Steeda rattle/clunking after install

    True, I do not believe them. They said the strut mount failed. Today they said it is a national back log for Mustang (I presume PP1) strut assemblies. When I said, "But you told me only the strut mount is bad, just replace the strut mount" They said, "that's on national on national back...
