My build: 351, T56, IRS. 86LSC & 87LSC Bringing it all together
#21
Rear brackets are bolted in and then welded too. I cut one and a half coils off a set of 04 Cobra convertable springs. If my figgures are correct that will lower the car 1". Now I need to bolt up the shocks and rig up some brake lines. I am very excited to get some tires on this thing and lower it to the ground.

I took some pictures with my cell phone. If anyone knows how to get them uploaded onto here LMK and I will try to do so.

Got the brake lines hooked up. I will post pictures later. For now, here is a list of the parts I bought/used:
1/4" brake line tee,
1/4"-to-3/16" adaptors X2,
20" x 3/16" brake line,
40" x 3/16" brake line,
10mm-to-3/16" adaptors X2,
1/4" pipe straps with rubber inserts X4.

Total cost is about $25.

Gas tank went back in today. For whoever said it is best to remove the gas tank, they clearly did NOT reinstall it after the IRS was under the car.
For everyone else: Do not bolt the IRS up unless the gas tank is alresdy bolted in. You will not be able to get to the bolts!

It has been a long pause since I worked on the Linc, but I made progress today. Driveshaft went in today (from a 2WD 97 V8 Explorer), tires went on, and lowered it to the ground!
I would have driven it today, but an Expidition transmission job has it blocked it.

I just won the bid on an 04 Cobra rack&pinion today, so the front suspension is next.

On 7-3-12 I got it backed out and turned around. I would have driven it around the block at least, but had no engine belt tensioner. I had breafly robbed the tensioner off last year, and now I can't find it.

It will be a long time before I get to work on the Linc again. On 7-14-12 I broke (shattered) my ankle and am told it will be many months before I walk again, and never right. 2 good things though: At least it wasn't my clutch foot, And by the time I am able to get around some again it will not be in the summer heat.

Yes the Mustang has taken away from the Linc some, but it is not forgotten.
So how did you know about the Mustang anyway?

<p>Lincoln update: Geting back on my foot some. Got it jacked up and most of the front suspension ripped out. Rotors, spindles, calipers, and struts on the ground. Sway-bar and LCA's yet to go. It will be slow to go back together.</p>
<p>Going to do $109 Steeda offset LCA bushing first.</p>
<p>$200 Griggs Racing CC plates secound.</p>
<p>and $584 Racecraft 94-95 drop spindles last.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then onto getting: one 94-04 ABS hub, figuring out what to do about the lower ball joints, and how to do the 12.4" brakes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I already have: 03-04 Cobra struts, TC sway-bar, 94-04 ABS sensors and pigtails, one hub, MM stainless lines, S197 12.4 rotors, & Panther dual piston calipers.</p>
