Hummm..., I took a quick look around and under Mods, Suspension/Steering found this:


After lowering the front of my car with a simple spring swap, I wanted to lower the back a little to level the car out and to also improve the stance of the car. I thought an inch would be enough but I was puzzeled about how to do it and didn't really want to spend alot of money doing it. After studying the problem for a bit, here's my solution. What I came up with is relatively easy and best of all it was free!

This was ALL the information and no additional link (nothing to click on), hence what you read above is all there is. I looked through a few more listings and others were similar in that the text was incomplete to explain the process, parts etc..  It was not all of them but it was a bit confusing.  I know that sometimes when people create websites they make "placeholders" and maybe this is what some of the incomplete articles are???

Take a look at the forum for "published tech articles" then go to "lowering the back of the II" Many pictures there.

Wow, a lot more than shows on the surface. Thanks. Not sure why it take a "guide" to get you there though. You might want to add a little "navigation" to the first post.

I used to be a member there, but can't remember my login for the life of me. It was way before the change, around 2008 or 09.
I searched for my name and only found one post. I know I made a ton more than that, so I am wondering if stuff got lost when they changed software or whatever they did that made Feeble (spelling?) re-post most of the posts.

Also, I just tried, and got a "Corrupted Content Error

The site at http://www.mustangiitech.com/ has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.

    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

It was working 24 hours ago. Sounds like they are having lots of problems from what I was reading there yesterday. I'm glad I thought to copy a couple of posts onto my hard drive that had stuff I want to keep while it was working yesterday.

Thanks,
