  1. Thanks Jeff I will send you the name of the place, his address and phone number. I don't want to put his info all over the net just yet until I know for sure that he is planning on ripping me off.
  2. The Verts hold there value a bit better than the coupes probably because there was less of them made and they cost more when new. I have 1487 and I could never sell it. Its part of me so I understand you not wanting to part with it.
  3. I think the problem has been resolved. The company I was having trouble with actually called me back. Thanks
  4. The lowest price I have seen was $23,000 and the average price is around $30,000. My guess is around $25K to $28K and if the paint is really that bad then more like $22K A mint low milage one would maybe get $35K I
  5. Map Performance is supposedly pretty good. My cousin knows the guys really well and thats the only place he brings his car to. http://www.maperformance.com/blog/minnesota-dyno-tuning-shop-high-performance-automotive-custimization/ I used to bring my SGT to Apple Valley Ford, they have a different SVT mechanic and I heard that Casey is a pretty good mechanic. Here is another place that probably is pretty good. http://www.hitechmotorsport.com/
  6. Your car now has an amazing story behind it. Your in the Mountain region so I bet the SS was close to being home
  7. I received mine and was happily surprised when I checked the mailbox, I also forgot about it.
  8. I have a set of CS69's that are 18 inch in Anthracite. They will fit big brakes. I bought them at the Shelby bash in 2009 at the charity auction they were having. One of the rims has a scrape on the side of it from a tire getting mounted on it. I had a price of $150.00 to get it repaired so it looks like new again, I still have the original boxes that came with them. I would sell all four for $700 plus shipping if you are interested. These were $350 for each wheel when new. They also come with the red center caps that are new.
  9. If they ever made another batch of these I bet they would be sold within a few weeks.
  10. I logged in right when I got the email and could have ordered one but thought the $200 price was more than I was willing to pay.....I should have known better to get one.
  11. Thanks for the feedback. This is something I will mention to the Steeda and see if they have had many complaints from convertible owners who may have done this. I installed the ford racing shocks and struts on my convertible and didn't notice any negative effects. Shelby used the Ford racing springs and sway bars on the convertibles but kept the stock struts and shocks because they felt that most convertible owners wouldn't track their verts and wouldn't like the rougher ride.
  12. On my 08 SGT vert I can hear a loud clunk when I apply the brakes. The sound is only on the drivers side and I hear it only once, if I let up on the brakes and drive some more and then reapply the brakes I will hear the same clunk. I have always assumed it was the Bear Pro Plus brakes and that the caliper is sticking. I was reading through this thread and started to think maybe its the lower ball joint. I called Steeda up and described what I hear and they said that they see alot of control arm bushings that go bad. He said they offer a complete kit for the control arm that includes the ball joints and bushings. The cost is $499 with free shipping. http://www.steeda.co...hings-777-4902/ He said that its cheaper to have a mechanic replace the entire control arms than it is to replace the bushings. Did any of you have a clunk noise when applying the brakes? Has anybody installed this Steeda control arm assembly? If you have what do you think of it?
