ok i just finished up my taxes and looks like in 2 weeks i get to dump $1k into my beast, $300 is reserved for my trans rebuild im doing, so $700 left obviously...

im open to anything, and dont have many mods

i found subframe connectors for $50 does that basically mean they are **** or is that an ok part to go cheap on, if so what should i look to spend on them...

itd be nice to get a bunch of little **** but like i said im open to whatever is the best thing to do

I agree with baine, subframe connecters $80-115, gears and installtion $450-500, plus shipping and a couple tanks of gas.

I found a set of 3.73 on ebay from a guy who worked at ford and had a brand set around with bearings and shims for like 140 so I would look around ebay and at some other shops and stuff.
