I have heard conflicting stories, I have the DS and want to get the Bullit suspension but not if the DS will rub anything with it lowered. Can anyone advise me on if this is a possible/feasible combination???
My car isnt lowered...but I have no problems with clearance.
I think you would run into less problems with the car being lowered. The suspension is tucked up higher which would provide more clearance by the muffler. It seems like the closest thing would be the passenger side muffler.
The only thing that may rub would be your ebrake cable, but thats doubtful as long as its in good working order
With BBK lowering springs my aluminum driveshaft rubbed, but it was the fault of the SouthSide lowers. The geometry of the control arm is different than the stock arm and this in turn changed my pinion angle and caused rubbing on the e-brake cable. I put in some double adjustable uppers to correct the pinion angle, no more rubbing!
Not too familiar with the Bullit suspension, but as long as your all the geometry works out, then you won't have any issues.
My 91 is lowered about 2 inches and my FMS driveshaft rubs if i have another person in the car with me. Ive had the car lowered for 2 years now with the aluminum ds and only about 3 months ago it started rubbing. I cant figure out why.
hey ebony mine rubs the cables a little too if I bog it and let the clutch out to fast-----and I have southsides!!! What kind of improvement other than no rubbing did you get from adding the adjustable uppers? Im within specs on pinion angle barely at one or two degrees if I remeber correctly. A guy at a driveshaft shop in my town told me anything under zero is really ok. How much angle are you running?
slowblown- I haven't done an official measurement yet on the pinion angle. All I did when installing them was messed around with different lengths to stop the rubbing. I feel pretty confident that they are set pretty well, with lowering springs and well worn slicks I've seen high 1.6 60's. The improvements I saw from the uppers were basically a more solid feeling rear suspension.
My rub only occurred when going over bumps and the suspension was compressed, never heard of rubbing when releasing the clutch.
So there are quite a few Voodoo engines out there from gt350s, I would really like to swap this instead of a coyote. While looking around the web I see some things about why you shouldn't swap because of vibrations, special motor mounts to handle the vibrations... and so on. The only thing that...

SO, I posted a few pics of this setup, and got a lot of PM's with questions. I figured a thread would help explain everything better.
I noticed a few years ago, that Baer had moved away from offering the C4 Corvette/Cobra style...
Hi Folks, I have a new no start condition, I'm trying to figure out how to start diagnosis on it.
it just happened out of the blue, the car had been starting and running good. it sat for the typical couple weeks or so since I last drove it.
I turn the key and the alt gauge goes down really low...
Any of you fellas running antique or classic plates on your fox body's? I've had a couple of people tell me I should due to the amount of time I drive the car and having to get it inspected here in Texas. However I don't know much about these plates and the differences between the two.
