Re: Suspension FAQ! Cleaned Up 11/2004!

Hi Andy. Of note in the existing FAQ....

1-There are no bolts for the front upper strut mount. It's held in place (chassis strut tower) by gravity. There is a single bolt on the strut shaft which holds the plate to the strut, if that's what is meant. The rear upper strut mount is bolted to the chassis with 2 bolts per.

2-You may wish to post something to the effect that: Sometime in 1997, Ford began using a stronger rear sway bar bracket which is made from material approx. 10 thousandths of an inch thicker than the earlier material. Check pricing before purchasing, as the price quadrupled the last time I checked! Don't waste your money if running a stock size rear sway bar, as it's unlikely that the thicker brackets will be required.

3-You may wish to add this to my statement from an earlier thread about reinforcing the rr subframe: Firstly, knowledge of the specific application.........access to materials and equipment "WILL BE REQUIRED". This makes it a bit more understandable as a stand-alone comment.

You also requested FAQ NEEDS for details on subframes and lower control arm details. What info. are you looking for?
