Just a small feather in my cap for that one time Hot Rod Magazine put a photo of my 88 GT in an online article for the 2016 HOT ROD POWER TOUR



... of other note it was in an article titled "The Odd, Orphans, Freaks and Four Doors."

Nice 88... Congrats on the pic!

Do you have the lowering ball joints in the front from Rodney or did you lower by cutting the springs? It looks great at that height!

And here I thought this thread was going to be about your mastery of PIP.

Thanks! :-D

I didn't like how the 88's seem to ride higher in the front so...

I got an extra set of springs from The Mall and just cut one coil off. All at the same time I swapped out for all poly too.

The rear is almost all poly too. KYB shocks/struts all around. Amazing what just cleaning/refurbishing your suspension can do for squeaks, creaks, and rattles... until I have to soak the poly bushings with silicone once a year.

Do you do this while they are still installed, and what do you use?

I slathered them with the original Teflon grease that came with the poly bushing when I first installed them but that was a few years ago. Maybe it wasn't enough...

Since then (and a LOT recently) rain and splashing through unavoidable puddles must've washed some off. Once when I had the wheels off doing brake work I sprayed Liquid Wrench Silicone Spray around the exposed parts of the bushings.



Another time after a recent deluge the front started squeaking. So I turned the wheels back and forth to full lock and sprayed again. That was over a month ago and hasn't made a chirp.

I hope silicone spry isn't bad for polyurethane!?
