1965 Mustang Front End Noise Concerns

Customer brought in this beautiful ’65 Mustang that he recently purchased for concerns in relation to hearing what sounded like gravel in the front of the car. Discovered some loose front wheel bearings and brake pad shift were to blame. Currently remedying these issues and we should have it back on the road again soon!

1951 Ford Panel Suspension Airbag Issues

We received this beautiful 1951 Ford Panel this morning.  She was towed in last night because the front airbag suspension would not inflate.  After a thorough inspection we found one of the compressor solenoid vent valves was stuck open.  We disassembled the solenoid, cleaned up the valve and reassembled it, and up, up, and away she went.  Once we had the system operational again, we found a few other items needing some attention.  We noticed the compressors would not turn off, after the system pressure reaching 180 PSI we decided to shut it down before the bomb went off.  We found the pressure switch stuck closed not allowing the system to turn off once maximum pressure was achieved.  To finish it off, the rocker switches used to control the ride height were a getting sticky so we’re replacing those while we’re at it.  After a little TLC this rig is ready to get back on the road and have some fun in the sun.

How she looked upon arrival.

 

With work, comes elevation.

Chevy box van rear brakes

We get a little of everything through here; this ’99 Chevy chassis box van came in with a customer complaint of a leak coming from the rear end of the vehicle. Customer approved for rear brake shoes and axle seal replacements; resulting in a leak and squeak free rear end.

1965 Mustang chassis mods

The hot rod we are working on here is roughly 50 years old! If you are going to plan to push the car a bit, it will need support to deal with the handling, power options today, the upgraded braking, and the great rubber that make it really stick to the road. All the aftermarket components put the frame to the test and frankly beyond what the car was originally capable of; support it. This car is fully equipped with all Maier components.
