    Diving in Head First!

    Clunking on acceleration

    Late to the party here. Sorry to hear about your misfortune!! Mexico would be a much nicer place to be than a shop!! Transmission failures are common. I know of at least four others. I am running redline MTF as I have said elsewhere on this forum. Strongly recommend it. Good luck with...

    Sway bar on an fg

    As far as I know no one has adopted one yet. I think Timbren Bump stops are generally considered a viable alternative while retaining articulation. Allan

    37's vs 40's for Fuso FG Build

    That is exactly what I did! Initially I picked up a set of used 37's to try them out. I use stainless steel balance beads. They work very well. Allan
