021129 - Shocks And Springs

Well, today it was my turn to host the monthly Chicago Vintage Mustang Club "tech meeting". This is something we do once a month in the winter to keep our minds on our cars when we can't (or won't) drive them.

I asked anyone who was interested to stop by and help me change the shocks on the convertible.

As you can see, it was long overdue. Both rear shocks were seized, one was even bent so bad I had to cut it off to get it out.

The fronts were both un-damaged, but both of them had stopped providing resistance.

Too bad I will have to wait until spring to see how the car rides now!
