My 93 Thunderbird Under Construction
Custom Coil Overs
Custom QA1 adjustable shocks are installed with 14/275 springs. 14/225 would
be ideal for strip only use with the weight of this car with a 351 based engine.
The hose clamp under the spring adjusting jam nut is for added security, so that
they will not move with vibration.
Car setup at Race height
With the Adjusting collars set to lower the front a little more, it places the shock plunger closer to the bottom of the shock,
allowing more rise to get better weight transfer. Will take a little time getting the right amount, and not using excessive
energy lifting the front. Ideal should be just short of lifting the wheels. I will try several settings, and see what gives the
best 60ft results.
This is how I park my Bird in the garage. I made the ramp braces so I can drive in, and up
on them. Makes it very very nice for working under the hood, or under the car. The boards are
wedged between the ramps and the back wall.
