I was thinking I'd like to start gathering up some used parts to do a five lug swap on my car, I haven't seen anything on craigslist and the few wrecking yards (I know of) don't seem to have much. Any recommendations as to where I should look? Thank you.

Next time I'm on the computer at home I might be able to find a bookmark that will help. It searches junk yards all over the US. That is how I got my sn95 spindles.

Going to register the stang today. Been 5 years since I last registered it.
Put a new battery in it also since the last one was 16 years old...ha ha. Got an Odyssey AGM battery that supposedly is better than the Optima.
Need to replace the battery starter relay on the fender.

Alignment was done and inspection. Damn check engine light came on a few miles after driving on the way to the garage. Codes were nothing special and cleared only to show up again about a mile after leaving the shop. Never had problems with that before. Maybe an electrical connection is loose or some corrosion.
Car is driving fine. Steering is light. Little hiccup under moderate to hard acceleration but not with gentle acceleration.

Running good. Couple times I heard some detonation when the engine was warm and I accelerated moderately. Maybe high IAT. Obviously needs some tuning. Drove it a couple hundred miles this summer. Forgot how flat it cornered.
Check engine light hasn't come on in a while. Hopefully that's okay now.
How's the FiTech?

FiTech is running better. I honestly haven't driven the car all summer after the initial test drive. The weather is getting cooler now so I will start massing with it again.
