1990 Ford Mustang LX 351M powered!! Project Cherry Bomb!!
I'm changing my 90LX from 4cyl front brakes to larger V8 sized spindles and brakes. No not SN-95 style spindles, still Foxbody style. I know that the struts are 1/4 in wider and need shims or spacers to accommodate to narrower mount on the spindle. I got from my local Fastenal 1/4 in thick washers to use for just this purpose. My question is in placing the washer between the strut and the spindle, should I put the washers towards the front of the car, towards the rear of the car, would it even matter, or toss em in the woods and get thinner washers and start over?? I'm not sure if this will have any effect on alignment or not.. that's a lil beyond my scope of support...
