    I coworker of my wife's needed her boyfriends car worked on (head gasket) so I offered to do it. It is a 96 ford thunderbird 3.8 with 75 shot of nitrous. Nice looking car lowered body kit graphics. Well he comes over and knocks on the door and says we have a problem. Well he tried to come up in the driveway on an angle and lifted the drivers rear tire, no posi, and was stuck and couldn't get it pushed by himself. I thought this was hillarious and had to post for you guys to enjoy.

    The 2 of us pushed it back, then put a couple 2X4's there to drive up on and into the driveway.

    looks like there is a few inches on top of the tire and I bet tehy stuff when it sits level so it is drooped just dropped as well.

    The tires sit right at the wheel well so it is drooped 3"s from where it mormally sits. This car rides great it was done with all the right parts not a hack the springs type lowering job (not that someone said or implied that just stating it). I just had to show someone who would appreciate these pics as much as I did.

    I think a car like that, even if it is a Ford, is way cooler looking and performing than one of those imports all decked out.

    I just sold my 94 T-bird.
    I had p/235/60 on mine and it would always spin a tire going in-out of driveways. They didnt have much suspension travel but rode very nice

    I had that same problem with my '78 Malibu (back when it ran...) and I solved the problem by overloading the clutch packs in the posi to the point it was basically a locker. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Not the most 'Mechanically Correct' solution, but it never slipped a single rear wheel after the 'procedure'.

    Where did you hook the Yank Strap??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
