Spent way too long looking at parts and not actually buying anything. I've taken the Mustang to work at least once a week to see if any other issues arise aside from what's already been established. What we already know:
-rear end needs new seals/bearings. Ring & pinion shockingly in good shape
-needs a new clutch at least
-both front wheels squeaking in motion; right louder than the left
-actually get the exhaust mounted
So i fired the cannon
Not sure if I need a new fork, flywheel, or pivot stud, so Ill order it all and return whats not needed
A guy with a RallyCross '95 GT recommened I opt for a standard clutch with a lifetime warranty. So there it is
This should be everything I need. The carrier, spider gears, and ring & pinion are all in good shape.
I'm sure the trac-lok discs in the rear now are toast. Might as well get fresh ones in there too.
I plan on getting all this done the week of July 11th. The plant is shutting down for maintenance, so I've got a week off to myself. Instead of traveling or being a bum on the couch (I still might do that). My goal is to get everything done on the list. By then, I should be semi race ready. There are future things I want to get done: subframe connectors, torque box reinforcement, but that will be next year's projects.
I also met a guy down the street with a garage & a lift. I "reserved" his lift for that week. No driveway clutch replacement!

@i86hotdogs Don't forget to add friction additive for your Trac loc if the kit didn't come with it.
Neighbor with a lift that's friendly? I'm jealous.

@i86hotdogs There really don't seem to be enough gifs of the Fallout "Rock-it launcher"/junk jet to make parts cannon maymays with.
@Vondon302 I have two bottles of that stuff already! One to soak the discs, another to add to the diff when it's all assembled

@i86hotdogs I found an old container for car wax works great for soaking the frictions in. Just the right size to submerge all of them using just one bottle of modifier
@Urambo-Tauro Good thinking. I was going to use another Tupperware container and face the repercussions form the wife later
