Rear Suspension, and Diff Cover

May 29, 2010 update on blaze86vic's 1986 Ford Crown Victoria 1986

I replaced the stock rubber bushings with ES poly bushings on the rear control arms. I installed a new cast aluminum diff cover with carrier bearing cap supports. I powder coated the cover with a transparent Hawaiian blue when I got it. You can see how close it is to the Police rear anti-sway bar, but it does clear! You will have to remove (or at least lower) the bar to install this cover. I also installed a new brake line since it was the last of the old hoses on the car. Feels great, and now I have no more wheel hop no matter how aggressive I get with it. Some future drifting videos are in order for sure!
