Well...I found out some disturbing news with the 94 as both "new" ball joints are shot. Yep, for some reason they kept coming out. That was the "clunk" I heard at VIR and CMP and verified it last weekend at the TRF show when I went to switch to street tires. I also found out that I corded both front tires due to the lower control arms.

I ordered a new set of lower control arms for the 1994 but I got the 03/04 Cobra lower control arms as they are supposed to be heavier duty and will allow you to have a shorter turning radius.

I'm going to plug this business as I got the best price from them off the Internet.

For two lower control arms with ball joints pressed in from the factory for $149.49 with shipping it came out to $163.69. This price was extremely reasonable as many others wanted $200.00 and up but some were close to this price but not lower for the same thing. Even someone on e-bay wanted $150.00 for a set he bought but never put on his car. I opted for new from a Ford Racing distributor, Southwest Ford in Weatherford, TX.

Very satisfied with their customer service and pricing in the parts department.

Next up, reinstall the lower control arms and new sway bar bushings with the correct size for my front sway bar.
