Do you have the ordering info for the U-bolts?I ordered new OE spec springs from ESPO Springs N Things.(...) One thing I didnt like is the U-bolts ESPO sent with the springs. They are solid round stock where as the original Chrysler U-bolts are flattened out more like a strap. This allows the U-bolt to have more bite on the housing without actually crushing & denting the tubes. Unfortunately had to cut the original u-bolts to remove the springs. I ended up taking a belt sander to the inside edge and flattening them a bit in hopes of not denting the tubes. Later on a friend dropped off some correct reproduction U-bolts that I'll need to swap in at some point.
Its not the original exhaust system to the car. Its been replaced with poor fitting muti size pipes over the years.What are your plans with it, get rid of it? How the mufflers? We are gonna be replacing the whole original exhaust with a dual system and could use one muffler or 2 on the Pumpkin our '70 Survivor FK3 Fury III, the original right now has a couple holes in it
Fitting the carpet. That was a huge pain. I do not like the thick rubber backing ACC uses on their carpet kits but with a lot of heat and a few strategically placed cuts was able to get it to form to the floor acceptably enough. Next time I do carpet Ill order it without the mass backing and just use sheets of sound deading directly on the floor.
Sounds exactly like what I was dealing with. Had to section the front half down the middle to get it to hug the tunnel so that the console would go into place.Based on your pics, despite it being a pain, it seems like that carpet fits pretty decently. I think I got mine from ACC about 4 years ago now, and that thing is so ill fitting, it still upsets me every time I go in the car. There's no way mine was molded from an original carpet or the actual Fury/Sport Fury floor. It's way too big around the trans tunnel, and it's too short towards the back in the corners of the seat.
I just wonder if they've now remedied this situation. Based on your pics, maybe?
