since the 122 front suspension is almost identical to the mustangII, doing something like so
http://static.summitracing.com/globa...t-19010999.pdf up front, and then fabbing up something in the way of a shock mount and I was thinking off the point where rear bolts of the front crossmember are.

well the wife is giving me a deadline of having our current house list ready by November 1st... and I still have a pretty long chore list. But hopefully, I'll get into a place with a garage.. The wife only has 3 wants for the house: mature trees, open staircase, 2-3 car garage.

Lol. I need a shop with the amount of work I want to do. At least her wants seem small.

Not much to report tonight. Continue to work on the rear end. Ran out of cutting wheels again. Probable going to POR15 the rear and all the bolt on stuff will be powder coated.



Thanks,

Not much work done the car yesterday. Spent some time cleaning up a little (hard to keep a small area clean when you have 30 lbs of $***in a 5 lb bag) and picked up a used parts washer for 40 bucks. Lol.

Thanks,

Default Prepping Ford 8.8 Rear End

I would say this is the best I'm going to get it with my current tools. Will see what the guy fabricating it can do.

Picked up the steering gear box this morning. Should start putting it together in the next few days. Had to get all new bearings and they had to press them in.

I did a little reading on 8.8" Ford rear ends. One source mentioned that the axle tubes are only held in with two rosette welds at the center section, which I think I see in the above pic. It occurred to me that maybe those welds could be drilled out and the tube removed, shortened the correct amount and reinserted. It was also suggested to cast iron weld the axle tube to the center section so it wouldn't break the rosettes under hard acceleration. Just sayin'!

I think that's about the normal way it's done. I'm pretty sure mine was done that way before I bought it.

There is a part of the tube were the old bracket used to go on that has a very small soft spot. He wants to cut it there to fix that and won't have to grind the old brackets off. Then he will reinforce both tubes.

Thats SWEET! I'm getting ready to start my winter projects, one of which is an 8.8 and a T5. Any idea how far they cut 8.8 that down?
