68 Mercury Cougar Shock Tower Brace Modification To Fit
10th part of the Mercury Cougar restoration. Here the finished suspension is looked at and the after market shock tower brace is modified to fit the car. The painted engine bay and installed engine can also be seen. As always, thanks for watching and comments are welcome. There was some feedback on this video about the shock towers sagging inwards on these cars. The original braces fit ok and dropped into place. These are old cars and anything can happen, but original fits are something to be considered.

How To Control Arm Bushing Removal at Home (without a torch) 1984 Chevrolet Truck C10 DIY
This video is showing one way I remove the control arm bushings from a 1984 Chevrolet truck C10 if you don't have a torch and with basic tools that most will have. After stripping these arms down and buying the new bushings and ball joints, I will recommend to anyone considering doing this - DONT. Just buy the complete control arm with all already installed and painted. The $100 you save (for 4 arms) doing it yourself is not worth all of the labor you'll put into it. Plus they probably still wont look as good. 15 min Video of the complete C10 front end being rebuilt here: http://youtu.be/t0BN1B0-mZs ========================================­= Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/AGearHead4Li... ========================================­= Check out my other videos like this on the link below: http://www.youtube.com/user/AGearHead4Life

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers. Most of the parts mentioned in this video can be found here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/frsu.html Springs we used: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/c7zz-5310-p.html Rubber Insulators: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/c4dz-5415-a.html Rear seat divider panel (67-68 Cougar): http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13463-Divider-Rear-Seat-to-Trunk -Coupe-METAL-New-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html See also: 69-70 Cougar panel: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13464-Divider-Rear-Seat-to-Trunk -Coupe-METAL-New-1969-1970-Mercury-Cougar.html If we forgot to list anything, you should be able to find it on our website!

Wheel Lip Mouldings On A Budget - 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
For Cougars, trim pieces can be very expensive. The wheel lip mouldings are not reproduced for 67-68 Cougars, so your only options are to have your originals restored, which is very costly (over $400 for a set of 4) or find NOS trim, which is also very expensive and they are almost impossible to find. The good news is, there is another option! We've found that the reproduction 1971-73 Mustang wheel lip mouldings can be easily modified to fit a 67-68 Cougar. While the fit isn't perfect and the profile is a little different, these mouldings only cost about $120 for 4 and look great once installed. Or, if you send us your original core trim, we'll give you these for free. Using two right rears and two left rears, the only modifications you need to do are 1) drill new holes in your wheel arch and 2) trim the rear mouldings to fit. Watch the video and you'll see it's really quite easy, and the result looks great considering the low cost.

Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
http://www.cjponyparts.com/1964-1973-Mustang-suspension/c/10170000/ In this installation video, Bill demonstrates how to upgrade a front suspension in CJ's 1965 Forgotten Fastback project car. Before the upgrade, the Forgotten Fastback's suspension was beyond poor, with two 4x4s for springs and several loose parts. In order to make the Fastback a Mustang with modern updates, we've decided to install a stock-style suspension with a few performance upgrades, which will provide a better handling experience. For springs, upper and lower control arms, and a strut rod kit, we've chosen top-quality products from Scott Drake. Mustang Scott Drake Coil Springs 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-coil-spring-progressive-rate-pair-19 65-1966/p/CSPR1/ These springs allow your Classic Mustang to take advantage of the latest suspension technology and perform more like a modern sports car. They provide a fairly stock smooth ride during normal driving, but as the springs compress under load (primarily during braking and cornering) they progressively become firmer to offer the handling characteristics similar to our 600 pound performance springs. Mustang Scott Drake Lower Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-lower-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/LCA71/ These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and natural steel gray and come with a ball joint, grease seal, a washer and nut and a cotter key. Mustang Scott Drake Upper Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966: http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-upper-control-arm-assembly-premium-b lack-gray-1965-1966/p/UCA3/ These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not rebuilt, but rather all new. They're painted black and natural steel gray, come ready to install, and include the bushings, ball joint, but with cotter key and washers with locking nuts.
