    I remember seeing your setup that's what gave me the idea with the filter. I'm probably going to mount mine to the trunk floor or the spare tire area. I would like to put it where you have yours the only problem is the upper control arm mounts will get in the way.

    Did you ever install these racecraft spindles with your MM k-member?

    More work on the car last night I was able to easily get the lower bolts the rest of the way through. It just need a bit more alignment. When I got that done I lowered the rear of the cradle put the upper brackets on and swung up the rear of the cradle. Everything went up fine it aligned to the...

    The fight with the IRS cradle continues. I did some more reading and made some changes on how I'm installing the cradle. I removed the upper mounts from the car and bolted them to the cradle. I focused on getting the lower cradle mounts in with bolts installed. I got them into position then used...

    I know that's why I was kind of thrown off by it when I noticed the problem. Hopefully this isn't pointing to a deeper issue I can't see right now.

    I got more work on the car done last night. I marked and cut the fuel lines to get them ready to flare for the tube nuts. Then I went to install the IRS cradle I had it most of the way installed when I ran into a problem. The IRS cradle hits the upper control arm mount. I got the lower...

    Yeah I can't wait to see the IRS under the car. When I had the cradle part way under the car I was getting excited then it hit the fuel line. I'm bummed about the fuel line issue since I will have to remove the hard lines to do the flaring but I think just flaring the hard lines and adding tube...

    The cart is the way to go I'm going to fully build the IRS on the cart the roll it under the car. When I started to test fit the IRS cradle into the car I could tell assembling it once its in the car is going to be a pain especially the upper control arms.

    I looked it over more last night and I can't move the lines back anymore then they already are right now. I think my best bet is to either cut the end off and add a tube nut and replace the last part of the fuel line with steel braided line or just replace all the line with steel braided line...

    I decided to give something a try getting the sub frame into the car. I had seen someone else use a lift cart they got at harbor freight to install the IRS they said it made it allot easier to install. So I went and picked one up and it does make it allot easier. I had it most of the way in...

    I'm going to give that a try. I tried again last night by putting the jack under the sub frame and started to get it into place but I found you really need to get both sides of the lower mounts in at the same time or one side won't go in if its leaning to one side or the other.

    I got the tank drained and out of the car. I had to cut a little bit of bracket connected to the frame rail to get the bracket on the driver side to sit right. I got the bushings in the sub frame and ready to test fit it into the car. I tried to attempt it myself but it wasn't working very...

    The hole is threaded in the side so if I added the tab it would bolt right in. It would look the cleanest but take the most time to do. The first event of the season is Feb 8-9 so I'm shooting to have it done and ready to test drive no later then Feb 1 to make sure I don't have any problems...

    I was thinking of using 1/2inch by 1-1/2inch long Grade 8 bolts for the ones that go through the bottom of the frame. The side one I'm most likely going to modify the bracket and move the bolt hole down to meet the factory quad shock mounting hole.

    The brakes won't work on my car so I'm going to use the factory cobra brakes on the car. I'm going to try and drop the tank today and get the sub frame bolted up to the lower control arm mounts so I can start looking at how I'm going to mount the upper sub frame mounts. The hardest one to figure...

    Day one of the update out with the old. I got all the rear suspension out of the car. I was hoping to keep the gas tank in the car but it looks like it will have to get pulled to get the sub frame installed.

    Last event in the books for the year and it really went good. I still ended up 5th today but instead of being 1.5 seconds off the leaders I was less then half a second. The steering felt good and worked really well so I that problem should be solved. I had the lead on my first run but just could...

    I got the car out for a 50 mile drive today. The car steered straight when the wheel was centered so that was nice I really didn't want to have to deal with that plus it would have meant missing the event at least with the mustang. So fingers crossed it does well at the event and comes home...

    Then I would go with the PHB/TA route its a really good upgrade for the rear of the car for the cost. You might even look into lower control arms depending on how old the ones you have are.

    Deciding between PHB/TA or IRS really comes down to budget. The cost of a PHB/TA is going to be less then a used IRS. Then the IRS will most likely need new bushings and other things based on how many miles it has on it. The other thing is what do you want to do with the car. Are your trying to...
