Hey everyone! long time no talk. I have lots of parts that I no longer need. I'm located in central Wisconsin. I'm not sure of everything I have as I have them scattered between my house and my parents house, but I have a general idea of what I have.

-full front end rebuild including a set of the original DLF LCA bushings, no offense to trunk monkey, I'm sure he's doing a great job!
I'm not sure what the front end parts are, I bought them from a guy on here years ago.
-93 one piece aluminum drive shaft, again, bought from here years ago.
-J-Mod, never been out of the box
-Aluminum 3.73 trac-lok rear end. Not sure of the condition, it was oiled up in a garbage bag in my parents garage years ago, again, bought from here years ago.
-Cobra parts to get the, what is it, 5x4.5" bolt pattern? Bought off here and only looked at. not sure of the exact parts I actually have, but I know it's a full conversion, i think.

nothing I listed here was ever used. I had big plans for my old 96 Bird, but I was young and dumb and now I'm older and married with 4 kids. As for price, it's yours for the taking. I would like not to ship, if I had to, I would have to get prices and hope that the recipient would pay, but I'm willing to travel an hour or two to meet someone. I can get pictures, but probably not for a couple days.

Thanks everyone. I hope someday I can find a decent Bird again and fix it up and do all these sweet ass things to it, but right now, it's all about the family plan. I miss the car scene!

I'm sure if you get everything sorted out and see exactly what you have you won't have a problem selling your parts.

Pictures would be great too! :)

I know you would prefer not to ship, but please message me if that changes. I'm interested in these parts exclusively. Shipped to 89143 and would be willing to pay something for them. Message me a shipping cost and we can discuss a total, if it's something you are interested in. I understand someone might rather pick up everything local, and also understand time is very valuable to you and your family.

I have a guy 20 minutes away that does nothing but shipping, I will talk to him soon. I have a vacation starting next Friday, so it might take some time before I can get a quote. Are you interested in everything? Sorry I didn't PM, if you wan to PM me feel free.

Looking at your post, I'm assuming you just want the cobra parts in bold?

I may be interested in some of the parts and live in Northeast Iowa. Possibly interested in driving your way if you get a better idea what parts you have. PM sent as well

Would you happen to have an instrument cluster? Any '89 to '96 analog cluster will do even if it doesn't function, I just need the back of the housing and the connector pigtails.

I know we've discussed this in the past but for heavy stuff, I've had good luck with Greyhound terminal to terminal shipping.

Historically, I know that things like rear diffs can be expensive to ship b/c of their weight and not always cost effective to do so. As a package with other stuff, it might just be viable.

I've heard of others recommending Fastenal (the big industrial nuts & bolts company) as another lower cost (compared to USPS/UPS/FEDEX GND) shipper for bulkier/heavier automotive parts.

It kind of makes sense; they have a nationwide network of trucks to supply their stores so why not leverage that for extra $$$

Pm sent. If you happen to still have the suspension parts and willing to ship whenever you get spare time( I can wait), I’d greatly appreciate it. Looking to do a full suspension makeover pretty much. Thanks in advance, chris
