    You may need to 'slum' over at TCCoA; there's some work on possible usable inserts going on.

    Right now, there's not really any good choices for the front until you ratchet up to the SCP CoilOvers....

    AUTO does the best of both worlds when the shock is properly tuned.

    I gather it's not in a TBird either, then, from the way you're wording that.

    I don't have a 1989 or 1990 EVTM, alas; but I bet the PCM pin I mentioned (pin 4, orange/white) is the same pin as for...

    It's an orifice tube, and you have, you just don't realize you have.

    It's in the liquid line, right about where it runs against the front "frame rail".

    I'd replace that whole line.

    31 spline would be 2000-2004 Cobra. 1991 was 29 spline IIRC; same as the MN12/FN10.

    But.

    You need to count the spline count on your spiders; and match them.

    I can find billet accessory drive kits for a 1994/1995 Mustang GT with the 5.0HO; which said motor is almost identical to a 1993 TBird/Couger 5.0HO. And has as its major variance the extension of...

    I'm more thinking something that doesn't come in until it goes closed loop - I'd be checking O2s first.

    Then MAF, TPS, and IAC sensors.

    Someone who tunes may have better suggestions; but it...

    The OTHER end is grounded.

    For noise reduction, you really don't want to ground BOTH ends.

    You can try a series resistor ... starting with, say , 510 ohm and working up a step at a time.

    I'd get it rebuilt, or get an upgraded new one.

    No, they're not.

    First, they're not MacPherson struts; they're technically a coil over shock.

    Second, they're not in good shape after, what, at least 24 years (maybe 30)? They've gone bad.
