  • wakester06v6: Front Struts and Springs are in finally! That part of the 2017 suspension rehab was super easy. (easier than I thought) The 'stinger drives like a dream now with Joni adjustable Sport shocks and struts in place. Steeda Sport springs drop her down a little, but not so much that it looks slammed.

  • dadnpony: Subject: Night Before Christmas for the Mustang enthusiast !

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the town
    Not a Mustang was growling, not even a Roush.
    The Stangs were all parked in our garages with care,
    In hopes the new show season will soon be here.
    The Oil was changed to protect the heads,
    I sure hope the battery, doesn’t go dead;
    and mamma was complaining, I was taking a nap !
    Was just getting tired of taking her Crap.
    When out from the street came such a roar,
    I sprang from the couch and went to the door.
    When, what did my wondering eyes look and see.
    ,but the spirit of ”Carroll Shelby” in a 500 GT
    That little old driver , changing gears so quick;
    I Knew in a moment it was a short throw stick.
    More rapid then Hemi’s his coursers they came,
    and he whistled, and shouted and called them by name;
    “ Now Steeda, Jack Roush and Steve Saleen
    Let’s keep that “Bullet” coming Mr. McQueen !
    A Mach 1 and a Boss were burning up tread;
    both had their tach’s , pegged into the red !
    Pistons were stroking and tires were smoking,
    I was laughing so hard, I was almost choking.
    Ran out to my driveway to give them a shout;
    Please give me a second to pull my one out !
    ,but all I could hear as they drove out of sight,
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good night.

Got a smoking deal with trade in and it now sits in my driveway. Atleast now i can tow my 30ft camper with ease and comfort of knowing my F250 will handle it with no problems. Loved my F150 and will miss it. Just hope this F250 fairs as well as my F150 did.
