I have no idea. Maybe my buddy I bought it from might. I got her back together and running. I will have to get some picks. I wired up an aftermarket radio last night and realized the sub wasn't working. I looked through the forum and found out how I needed to wire the sub in and did that so it works now as well. Timing belt, thermostat housing and a suspension upgrade is in order.

Any suggestions for a suspension that would be a good setup? I will look in a short while more indepth as I have seen a few companies make them. Just wanted to see who here has any input.

Brakes & Suspension section has that info., plenty of options.

Good thing is that the stock setup is still avail. through the aftermarket, if you want to just refresh like new inexpensively.

(upgrade for other models)

I have been reading up on a lot of stuff. Trying to figure out which route to go with suspension. I am buying a second motor so I will need to read more info on a few other sections here soon :)

I wouldn't lower it much more, thanx to the svt header....Possibly go w/ Koni yellows, refresh your strut mounts w/ a pr of Motorcraft ones, Eibach front/rear sway bars= 22/25mm.

Thanks for the advice Felix. I am ordering the Svt suspension kit, eibach sways, new fogs, new timing belt, thermostat house, a new top engine mount, plugs and wires and new ignition coil. That's just the start. Haha. I will get some new pictures up here soon of the parts when they come in and how the car is now :)

I love this forum!
