What's up Everyone? I'm new once again to this site. I have 1996 Black T-Bird 4.6. I'm looking to keep it running well; so far it does. I need some A/C work and possible suspension work too. If anyone can point me in the right direction in the tampa area I would appreciate it!

thanks!

F/X T-Bird

Grab a decent shop manual and do the suspension yourself. You could probably do most of the a/c work yourself too and have the guys with the ma-cheen vacuum it out and gas it up. Assuming you have tools and a place to work.

As I am also Polish I take offense to this!!!

Pertaining to your suspension question. There's a garage I go to for ALL of my work called Hopkins Auto. My family has taken cars there for over 10 years or more. If you want more info send me a PM.

It's got some issue with vibrating. I just replaced the tires, with brand new Kuhmos 245/50/16. I had the rotors cut, the alignment done and the upper, lower control arms. Mad money. I still get a vibration; not as much as before. I hear the bearings can be an issue or the calipers.

all depends on what speed, gear, rpm, side of the car..could be tc, driveshaft, wheel bearings, wheels themselves, etc

I'm going to have it checked out tomorrow. I was thinking it could be the wheels themselves... I hope not. I'll have them look at the bearings, drive shaft, etc. What part of Florida are you in?
