Jamco suspension - problems!!! HELP NEEDED!

Posted on August 17, 2015 at 10:59pm 6 Comments

has anybody installed Jamco lowering suspension?????

I got the 3" lowering kit from them as well however Imnhavig problem with the rear suspension!

The shorter coil is ok BUT the shock that Jamco sent me is literally the same Monroe shock that I had installed previously and it is too long to close the coil, I mean when I'll install it and lower the jack the compressed coil opens up and comes out!

Of course it would be fine if I put the wheel back on and put the car down but I… Continue

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.
