    I got brand new bearings for my 96 front spindles. Currently, when I got more than 20 MPH, it sounds like I'm driving a damn freight train.

    So...what did YOU do for your Fox today?

    Can I ask how much that ran you? I need to take care of that soon as well. Just curious.

    What did I do to my fox today? Put on over 50 miles hitting up baseball games...2 nephews in 2 different towns. Finally got some good weather in Chicago!

    1st got it back from my friend/mechanic, he redid all the trim it looks awesome.

    I also put on some clear corners I had in the garage (not 100% sold on them still), and new FRPP wires.

    I have an 81 Capri RS with the L6 (200 CI). I need a rear differential cover with only 8 holes instead of the usual 10 holes. I don't know what vehicle the rear end may have come from but I can't find anything online or in stores except for the gasket, can you point me in the right direction?

    Looked at it in the garage and did nothing. Needs a battery, oh and a new engine so I haven't touched it.

    Changing starter! YAY! I don't feel like putting the better SN95 starter in because I have to do this in my parking garage so the less time with the hood up the better. I'll do that when the engine is out and I have the garage and time to do a good job... Although it only messed up once (wouldn't start yesterday but did after a few minutes)... I'd HATE to have my car on a flat bed! :D

    Edit: done... took abour 30 minutes, I got a cramp in my left hand from unscrewing the top bolt lol... Once the OE replacement poops out, I'll get the FRPP high torque one. For now I just needed a quick fix without hassles.
