1967 Cougar Headlight Vacuum Solenoid Tips, Tricks, Do's and Don'ts
We snuck into Brian's garage while he was away and filmed this
informational video on the unique 1967 headlight vacuum solenoid. It's a
complicated and temperamental little device that you can ruin easily if
you don't know what you're doing. Our goal with this video is to help you
understand how this solenoid works, and some of the "do's and don'ts" of
testing and installing them.
Our rebuilt units are listed on our website here:
Mustang Ridetech Level 2 HQ Series Coilover Kit 2005-2014
This is Ridetech's Level 2 HQ Series Coilover Kit for 2005 through 2014 Mustangs. These coilovers
offer the ultimate ride quality, handling performance and simplicity. HQ
(Handling Quality) shocks are a step up from the RQ (Ride Quality) shocks.
HQ shocks feature a different internal design and adjustability. A knob
contains 26 clicks for you to adjust between a soft or firm ride. The kit
includes front and rear coilovers so you gain full control of your Mustang.
These coil overs feature 26 clicks of adjustment, impact forged aluminum
shock body, unique clamp doesn't use a set screw to ruin threads, mono tube
construction and hyperCo 2-1/2" springs
The Ridetech HQ coilovers have superior fade free performance and great
ride quality come from the monotube construction. An impact forged aluminum
body with an anodized finish provides superior strength and reliable
service. A 5/8" chrome shock shaft moves a 1.834" piston that dampens
suspension travel. Oil leakage is eliminated by use of a double sealed rod
guide with a dust cover. The height adjuster uses a unique clamp and finer
thread for easy adjustment. There is no set screw to ruin threads on the
shock body. Includes 1/2" bore x 1" kevlar lined bearings for noise free
operation and CNC machined billet hardware.
Ridetech chooses high quality springs that are manufactured in the USA.
2-1/2" coil springs are made in Indiana by HyperCo. HyperCo uses CNC'd cold
wound high tensile premium steel. This lessens weight, resists bowing and
increases travel. Ridetech engineers the spring rates to help your car
handle to the best of its abilities.

Zoe - West Coast Classic Cougar Request
My daughter Zoe is trying to receive a 1967 Mercury Cougar GT 4 Speed Car
from West Coast Classi Cougars in Oregon. This is her Video submission.
Please West Coast Classic Cougar help my dauger with her dream of owning a
Myself I still own my 67 Mercury Cougar that I built in high school (zoe
is going to the same school). My wife still has her 1968 Mercury Cougar
xr7 Gt which was her first car. We are all Members of the Mercury
StrayCat's Cougar Club. My wife and myself were a couple of the founding
members. I think Zoe would be a good fit to restore the 1967 Mercury
Cougar Gt and keep it for years to come. One thing I am not seeing often
is younger people restoring the old cars. If young kids do not keep up the
hobby who will?? Lord Lucas and his Leadfoot Ladies will. Please let West
Coast Classic Cougars know that you also want to see a young girl (who by
the way does already drive a manual transmission) restore and keep another
Mercury Cougar Alive !!!

RIDETECH level 2 coil over + 4 link install (71 Chevy Camaro)
Ridetech level 2 coil over + 4 link install on 71 Camaro. This is our 2nd
RIDETECH suspension upgrade completed, with this group of friends; our
first on a "F" body! For the "F" body, we had to break out the welder!
The older American Thunder series flowmaster transverse muffler/exhaus had
to be removed to clear the upper link brackets. Andy, Don, Mike, Ray, Jim
and Terry, thank you so much for your help on this. Replaced the
Flowmaster "american thunder series" tranverse muffler with two 3 chamber
50 series flowmasters. Ran the 2.5 inch runs under the differential. The
pipes allow for wider tires down the road. Car has more Pep! The guys at
Guaranteed Mufflers and Brakes in Fremont, were great! Really happy with
the new deep sound.
Next step: Finalize the ride height!
How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers.
The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower
the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also
let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if
your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory.
Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using
our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up
and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling
characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the
ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite
the taller front tires.
Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.
