    Hearing loud banging under heavy acceleration...

    Don’t waste money on a pinion snubber, especially if it’s lowered. It’ll just push the pinion down and the car will porpoise. Been there done that. Get a set of caltrac bars or if it’s street only, even a cheap set of slapper bars will keep the axle housing from rotating up.

    Finally! 70 Roadrunner going to "the old guy" for its 2nd ever alignment. QA1 everything w/SPC UCAs

    My car still utilizes the stock cam bolts on the UCAs as well as spherical rod ends. For drag racing, the more caster the better, but I’ve had so much caster dialed in the car would hardly take an interstate off ramp without me putting my body weight onto holding the steering wheel from wanting...

    Brake Warning Switch O-Ring - Where to Get?

    Reviving an old thread here, and I have a leak at the sender on this block. Does anyone know what the sensor thread is or what I can use as a plug since I don’t need it in my application. Thanks!

    Steering column wire question

    Yes, it’s the key light. Everything will function fine without it.

    Big Block Motor Mount Suggestions

    Stock mounts with a torque strap on it to limit movement will work fine.

    The rake look

    Handling issues are when you’ve got this kinda stuff and more going on. Another factor is having the front end alignment done after the lift.

    Difference on B Body Upper Control Arms

    Ah yes... the Chevrolet design.

    The rake look

    No idea... I can’t believe people still use them! I got these with a bunch of parts and should just pitch them.

    The rake look

    I got a super deal for someone from this thread, lol!

    The rake look

    Get some superstock springs, extended shackles and some high jackers. Don’t forget the plaid bell bottoms and frayed denim jacket!

    Possibly a dumb ? But...Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake system and factory hard lines??

    If so, that makes perfect sense. I suppose if someone mixed all kinds of brake fluid they could have created something to gum up a line but in my experience, it’s usually a hose deteriorating that causes that condition. Using 50 year old steel lines isn’t a problem if they’re in good shape...

    Possibly a dumb ? But...Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake system and factory hard lines??

    I wouldn’t either. In fact, I didn’t use any at all on the rear. Wilwoods are a fixed caliper, as mentioned, and replacing the pads doesn’t even require caliper removal.

    Possibly a dumb ? But...Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake system and factory hard lines??

    If the original lines need replacing, go for it. I guess if I replaced anything it would be the original rubber lines with AN braided lines. Might help stiffen up that pedal some.

    Possibly a dumb ? But...Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake system and factory hard lines??

    Who suggested this and why? Are the factory lines in good condition or do they need replacing? I run 4 wheel Wilwood discs with the original factory lines.

    Upper control arm

    You’re both correct. For most applications, stock components are fine. For drag applications, an adjustable upper control arm will really help with getting more caster. Unfortunately, mine have to be removed from the car to be adjusted.

    Caster Camber

    Probably steered itself down the track. I knew those had a lot but I didn’t know it was that much. My experience is all door car related.

    Caster Camber

    Depends on the purpose. Typical street car might have 2 or 3 degrees, street strip car 3-6 and a strut front race car might be as much as 15.

    Weld in 4 link

    That’s the one I couldn’t remember. Cool stuff.
