The next group of parts came in this morning, I'm opting to have everything new in the rear. The gears should be here tomorrow, and the axles are the middle of next week.

I still have to call DSS or PST for a driveshaft, has anyone do the strange 1350 flange know the specs for it, going to a t-56? Wouldn't one for a 12 bolt fit?

Don't understand what you are asking? It looks like the strange 1350 yoke you already have. BTW you are gonna need a 3rd quart to get it filled up.

How long should the driveshaft be, would there be any different when using this flange?

The axles look great. Those are 31-spline axles to fit the 10-bolt tubes, right?

Unfortunately not yet, i have been so busy with the job change and with the end of the school semester, plus i'm going out of the country for the next week. But plans are to start next on it the first week in December. I need to get a new fuel pump and order C Clip eliminators for the rear.

I like them a lot. I think I've finally got the compression and rebound adjusted to my liking and driving style. The cool thing about these coilovers is you have the ability to adjust ride height, as well as get the car setup for street driving, street racing, autocross, track events, etc. Install was pretty easy as well.

A little update

I got the car running again it needed a new fuel pump and injector clips. I ordered up a set of front tires for the car and got those put on today. I must say for never driving a car with skinnies before it's really not all bad, the steering has a lighter feel and you Know there are up there but it's totally manageable. Also to my amazement the ABS light did not come on Being that I have 26in/28in tire combo.

Wow, this is starting to get more and more tempting! What would a guy need to do to keep his 1LE driveshaft?
Also curious if anyone has used a spool or had c clip eliminates installed?

I'm pretty sure all you would need to keep your DS is just the conversion u joint, and the rear flange of the ford DS. Wouldn't see a problem using a spool, and from what I could find no one makes a direct bolt in c clip eliminator setup for the fbody 10 bolts.

Hmm, the only problem is a spool doesn't use c clips..atleast the Strange unit I was looking at didn't appear to.
