Maybe it's not the "cheap parts", maybe it's the cheap work you've done. Don't take offense, because I don't really even know you or how experienced with cars you are, but it could be your work that was the problem. Turning a car into a five-speed that wasn't meant to have one will cause problems I'm sure. Once again, I don't even know the exact problem, or whether or not it was related to the switch, so no offense.

Sorry for the problems. I was actually hoping it would work out, because it could have been a "gateway" to other transmission swaps. It seems like everyone is crashing or blowing up these days.

the transmission was a bad one at the start. the owner of the SHO it came from tore it up. the axle that went was fom the same car. axle goes, differential goes out of alignment. the problem was faulty parts. it was a budget swap anyways, so no surprise came to me.

This might be a silly question (don't mind the newbie question) but will that Gen2 SHO sway bar fit a gen3? If so what size is it? (mm)

americasfuture -

According to SixFoFalcon from another thread, "Any sway bar from any Taurus/Sable will fit in any other Taurus/Sable (EXCEPT station wagons!) The suspension geometry has changed very little over the years."

That being the case i'm interested in buying that sway bar if you can tell me what size it is. PM me with the details and i can give you my address for S/H costs.

I think it could have been the over spinning of tires and such, but nonetheless this sucks. If i were you I wouldn't just be throwing away all that hard work. I'd be finding a way to hang out to it and fix it up. I mean you had what so many people had only talked about doing for the last few years here.

Good luck
Ben

the junkyard tried to screw me over on taking my car. they said 150, most i herd all day for it. so i said yes. they come for it today, and offered me 100, no more. i told them hell no. so i think i might just hafta end up keeping the car. so the sale of the parts is off. im sorry yall. things come up and screw everything up. and i did put a lot of time into it for it to just go like that. if it did go, it was a learning experience on tranny swapping. but i guess i am just going to hafta walk a few miles to work or sumthing. like my grand parents did in the snow to get to school, but 15 miles :lol2:

It certainly is.

But that doesn't sound like "cheap parts" to me. Sound more like pilot error.

And blaming parts after you've stated that they were beat up by a previous owner?

No future in that, America.

I thought you were parting it? But your selling it to the junkyard? How about you put the entire car in the classifieds here and see if anyone wants it?
