I recently purchased a 2001 Cobra Convertible, and have been working through some of the issues. Within the last 8k miles the owner put an Aluminator into the car, but the rest of the car has been pretty neglected. The car has an AJE K-member, AJE A-Arms, MM Caster/Camber plates and front coilovers. The main issues I have been having are as follows: - When I turn, I get a pretty loud pop from the pass side front - The steering feels extra heavy, and inconsistent (I figured it was alignment since it pulled to one side and didn't return to center) - Seems like a lot of vibration in general. I know convertibles have a lot of rattles, but this seems more than average So, first thing I did was to take the car to get aligned, and the alignment shop found that the K-member had some loose bolts and the alignment was way off. They adjusted it all within spec, but nothing they did affected the pop. They did find that the steering shaft was rubbing on the header almost constantly, which explains the heavy steering feel (which is still there after the alignment). So, I started with something simple... sway bar. Tonight I removed the end links, and the sway bar, and I found some interesting things. Here is the first thing I found. On the pass side (side with the loud pop) the AJE A-arm is cracked pretty bad at the end link mounting tab. I drove around without the sway bar, and low and behold.... no more pop. Tomorrow I will call AJE and see if they will warranty the arms. The drivers side is tweaked pretty good too, and the end link bushings are toast. See the pics. As I was looking over the A-arms, I came across what I think may be causing all of the other issues (vibration, stiff steering, and steering shaft rubbing header). Since the previous owner recently swapped the engine, I think they swapped the K-member at the same time, and both motor mounts are slammed to the bottom of the mount pads on the K-member. Additionally, the oil pan is basically almost sitting directly on the steering rack. See the pics showing the clearance (I can't see daylight between the steering rack and oil pan). My thought is that if I loosen the engine mount bolts, then use my engine hoist to lift the engine so that the bolt is at least at the center of the slot. If I do that, I think it might create clearance for the pan, clearance at the header for the steering shaft, and might end most of the vibrations. My question for others with New Edge Mustangs, I should have at least 1/4" or more clearance between the rack and oil pan, right? Just curious what others think of my logic, and if it makes sense that the motor mount should be up higher on the pads,or if possibly the motor mounts are worn, if they are slid all the way to the bottom of the K-member? Thanks for reading this whole post, I'm stoked to hopefully be making some progress on the issues the car has.
