  2. Airbag Recall

    Yep. Wife's 2012 Mustang got recall for the drivers airbag. Jumped through the hoops, waited, finally dealer had the part. Got it done. Then, one month later, ANOTHER notice. Recall for passenger side. Same drawn out dumbass process. Instead of doing both at the same appointment. Great...
  3. 1988 Sway Bar bushings for 4x4

    Need some help guys. The end bushings are worn out on my sway bar, can find replacements online but I stumped the very helpfull tech at Jackit because the sway bar is a solid 1 1/8" tube with no end link. Runs from side to side through a crossmember which has two split bushings evenly spaced...

  8. Bed bolt nut clips

    In pulling the bed on my 84 ranger one of the nut clips was broken, had to find a replacement. 12mm x 1.75 according to the tap I tried. At least in my part of the world, not so easy. Pull-a-Part had a few Rangers, but nothing with the bed already off. Nearest Ford dealer didn't have a clue...
  9. TRS Membership

    I joined TRS in Jan 12 when I was in the process of trying to solve a problem, like a lot of people do. Have since posted some, and read and learned a LOT along the way from some really savvy members. I just figured out that membership is a mere $10.00 a year. I can flat guarentee that by...
