It's pretty common on these cars. I guess it's pretty easy.

It looks like you replaced the whole control arms all at once. Is that they way to do these? My ball joints squeak like a kindergarten classroom. I was going to order ball joints, but I see the whole arms pretty cheap on RockAuto.com. Should I just order the whole things? Order complete uppers, and joints for the lowers?

What ever should I do Master of Panthers?

I did the whole arms because the bushings were dry rotted. But being pre 03 on yours, yours are alot different then mine. If your bushing look good, just do the joints imo.

visited the track with my little brother (that p71 was bought off a member here a few yrs ago).

Fastest pass to date. I was the loser. I ran up against a Hell Cat. I ran him twice. The first time he red lighted BAD. I think he was nervous

video of that pass above
I did end up at the dyno, not one I usually use. But the only one I could find to get on. I wasnt thrilled with both the results and how he was doing it. He wouldn't lock the converter for a pull (my TC can handle it). I felt he was starting the pull to high in rpms. I see 16-16.5 psi in the car, he was only getting me up to 13 psi. And he was cutting the pull off early in rpms. The car sees 6800+ at the track, he was cutting me off at 6400 and I was still making power at 6400. I paid for 3 power pulls, no tuning. He was having issues with his machine. I think he ended up making 6 or 7 pulls before hiting that below. Which you can see in the graph it clearly was reading correctly.

20181031_163446 by Cheapthrillb2, on Flickr

It can do better. We've found my 4l80 has a poopy long 2-3 shift no matter what changes we make in the tune. I am not spinning yet at launch with the radials, and we think with the 3.55's I gain a little more as well. Anxious to see what the spring will bring, cant wait. I had so much fun hurting feelings at the track. Car did pretty much exactly what I hoped it would be. Fast, fun, and unsuspecting. I think i've made 15-20 passes between the two trips to the track. The after race "whats you got going on with that" conversations were priceless. But my favorite was beating alot of the mustang coyote and dodge srt8 guys. I think i put around 4000 miles on the car in the short time I had it running this fall and no real issues to speak of.


My winter plans are

3.55's
fix a spot in the trunk that rusted from a bad seal
Clean up the stereo
Clean up the engine bay
Probably do something with the exhaust
Ive got all the ford stuff working on car except the cruise and the temp gauge
Air Conditioning
Upgrading the frt brakes lol, stopping at the track isn't easy lol, frts get to hot to fast
And if funds allow a new paint job.

Suspected for awhile I had a fuel bleed down issue. At cold start up it Crank for a extended time before firing and when it did I'd have some smoke from the exhaust. Pulled the rail this morning and primed the syst and found a couple injectors dripping. I suspect I have some debris holding the pintle open. I honestly can't recall how thoroughly I cleaned the lines etc after I installed them, or how clean the rail itself was. Guess I'll add cleaning and flow testing to the injectors this winter.

Little marauder rust repair on the docket today. My car is out of Texas and is spotless (rust of any kind) everywhere expect this spot in the trunk pan. At some point in its life somebody messed with the trunk lid. When I bought it, it was so poorly adjusted, it didn't seal. I went through a car wash and my amp got soaked. So standing water = rust .

Picked up a new intake. 2006 6.0 trailblazer ss. Has really strong flow #s and cheap. My car has a bastard intake on it now. It's a 4 bolt throttle body, but is the old truck style. I think they only put them on the 05 5.3 trailblazer platforms. Should be a nice little improvement.

I have one on the Lq9 in my jeep along with a corvette dbw throttle body. When I drove the 2 hrs to buy the one on the car, I thought I was getting this intake, not a bastard half breed

$150 spare race car engine, sure why not. I now have two spare 5.3s in case they go boom. Less then $500 into both of them.

Nice. For that price are they ones that need to be rebuilt or just high miles?
