hey ya'll

So I'm looking at gettin some more parts

-Steeda Three Point Strut Tower Brace (03-04 Mach 1)
-Maximum Motorsports Full Length Subframe Connectors (94-04) - Powdercoated Black
- Swarr Bar Mustang 8.8in Rear Support (86-04)

Is there any cutting, drilling, and or welding for these parts off AM? I know welding in the Subframes helps alot, but other then that is it a direct bolt on?

And my car only has 22k miles, will I need all the following to do my rear end or is it smart to do it anyway?

-Ford Racing Gears - FRPP Mustang 4.10 Gears (8.8in)
-Motive Bearing Kit (8.8in)
-Ford Racing 8.8" Traction-LOK Rebuild Kit w/ Carbon Discs

I hear that NGK Iridium IX Performance Spark Plugs are the best you can get, is this true? I'm looking at a few other things, but those I can handle. If anyone has bought any of these from AM please let me know what you think of them.

even though your car has 22k, i would still do the full bearing kit like you have. your already in ther so it would be cheap insurance

All excellent parts choices in my opinion. The only thing that will require welding is your subframes. Like said by F8L, I would recommend doing the bearing kit as well. While you have everything out, you might as well.

You can buy bolt in ones, but they do not stiffen it up anywhere near a weld in.

You don't necessarily need to pull your carpet...

Nope. Those are the same ones I have. Part of it bolts in, but you weld in the rest. And like lefty said, you do not have to pull your carpet if you have a person who is a good welder and not just throwin tons of heat at it. We did not pull mine.

^Yep. Just make sure you're good at welding and/or have a welder who know's what they're doing.

I love mine. I really noticed how stiff the car was when I tried to pull in to my driveway at my house in Tampa and the rear tire lifted from the ground! :eek: It is a sloped driveway and I have to go in at an angle to avoid scrubbage or the front lip.
