they look nice but just a heads up, you will lose lighting output with those if that's a concern. I say get those and retrofit a projector and be the king of the road.

I would go snooping around in the BOK. There are a lot of write-ups on this subject. Some will be located in the General Info section, some in the Powertrain section, some in the Body and Interior section. Also, if you don't have this, there is a lo

I tow with my bone stock panther about once a week for work. The boats range from 1500-3000lbs. Its definitely a 60-65 mph experience and no more. Keep overdrive off or the band will fry. I probably have around 7,000 towing miles. Plenty of trips fro

Finish the axle swap on my Grand Marquis that I had been thinking about since August, prepping since January, and had started on Saturday. The pep from the 3.55 put a big smile on my face

Could just be flooded. The EEC-IV is pretty slow to react, so if you're hooning around and immediately shut down, it will have been fairly rich when you shut it off. Normal restart will put fuel in on top of what didn't get burned, even more if it co

Hey magic, Sorry about that! Here's a quick photo I shot yesterday for you: Looks like this Again, the rear sits a little bit lower than the front, but my trunk always has about 100 lb of stuff in it, so that's more on me than the springs

Run away. I wouldn't trust a stranger's diagnoses. What if it's not the PCM? And if it is the PCM, why didn't they just replace it? It sounds like the low miles could be from the car sitting with this issue that they couldn't figure out. Al

China now makes these units in a new 9" intermediate size. I've never tried it, but it might be a good size to fit between those awkward Crown Vic dash bezels. Also, it's best to go for the unit with the most memory and highest release version

The clutch cable routing, cable lubrification, fire wall brace aligment all play a role on the stiffness of the pedal . Pedals were always a compromise . If the clutch pedal was left alone people were complaining that it looked awkward and out of p

The metal is always reinforced where the belts bolt in, you can't just start start drilling holes and bolting parts in. I haven't had the carpeted cover off in a long time but the metal might also be bent down around where it bolts in. The best way t
