Found a super duty at the junk yard. About to have a really tight suspension when I snag the sway bar ��

Yeah, super sharp for sure!

Do you have any issues with the front tires rubbing in sharp turn?

Rubs the plastic very slightly over bumps while turning. If its smooth it doesn't touch. They are a 255/35/20 which is 27" tall. Slightly taller and wider than the old tires

Aod is done rated for 500hp so it won’t work after I order the turbo. Will have to order the t56 sooner than I planned. Oh well, the 408w was quoted at 4800 shipped. Forged everything and rated for 1000+ picking up the aod this weekend and maybe do my down payment for the 408 at the beginning of November

These were the last pictures I took of it on 20s.

Tried to have a little fun and these tires decided to wheel hop instead of just break free. Ended up snapping a caliper off. Had no idea until we hit a decent speed and went to slow down. Pedal went to the floor. Caliper got lodged between the axle, spring and wheel.... wheel needs to go to a shop.


Had to redo the rear hard line 3 to 4 times since the rear disc swap because the cheap ass line from oreillys is garbage.

I've never heard of a caliper breaking off like that before although I'm sure it has happened to others as well.

What's going on with the metal brake line from O'Reilly, rust?

Just the cheap nickel copper stuff. I've never had good luck with them. Had two different lines both broke in different spots. Bought a n actual steel line from napa
