  2. 1G Front Strut Spring Isolator

    Replacing struts in my 1g awd, is there a rubber isolator/seat between the bottom of the spring between it and strut? I threw my old strut away and completely forgot to look.
  3. 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Yea man, I'm basically in the exact same spot you are with the same car so we have probably been down the same paths lol
  4. 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    When I was looking into bearings I found tons of examples of stock rebuilds running the ACL race and seeing builds with them from 2016 and before and still running fine. I thought since it's the most popular on extremepsi and stmtuned coupled with the fact I couldn't find a lot of bearing...
  5. 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Did you keep stockers? Swing by hw store and get a couple longer. If you have a leveler just use the PS bracket holes and then bolt leveler to that and exhaust.
  6. 1g build - The Real Life Trials and Tribulations of building a DSM

    Put lift brackets back on. One by PS pump and one by TB. I had my manifold off too when I pulled mine and just used an exhaust stud. Kinda sketchy but I tightened as much as I could and it was fine. I pulled tranny and engine together. I got tons of pics so let me know if you got any questions.

  8. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    Got some engine parts in today! Went with stock bore 9:1 compression. My engine builder said the balance shaft bearings gave out and caused the timing to jump. The bad BS bearings also ate up my rod and main bearings once metal was in the oil. I was pro keeping BS before I found this out, so...

    You might get lucky! Post up pics when you get it.
  10. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    Tank was in great shape believe it or not. I drained it and it wasn't rusted. The two front fenders are bent where the doors are out of alignment and bent them, not sure if they can be fixed and painted or if i'll need to track down a pair in good shape. Interior is pretty much perfect, I'll...
  11. 1992 Talon TSi Restore - First DSM

    What's up all, it seems the cool thing to do now is to bring these old DSMs back from the dead. I've always been a Mustang guy but loved DSMs ever since I first rode in one before I got my license.I should have started this sooner, but I bought the car in November 2020 and have been slowly...
