how long you had this car? bounce off any curbs, hit pot holes too fast? maybe not you but something just doesn't make sense here and I bet it is something simple and right in your face too.

Any of these are possible. I bought the car and most parts used.

Bring it up and we can sping the tires on the balancer, run it on the lift to check driveline and axles yadda yadda yadda..... Remember this, It`s only a problem if there is no solution and since there is always a solution then theres never a problem. :thumbsup2:

Im going to have to remember that one. lol

Keep us in the loop once you've mitigated out all these distractions and the root cause has been found. BTW bob that balance job has made a big difference as I ran my car up over 3 digits recently and it was relatively smooth.
:btu:

These are the same wheels you balanced before. I think they are good. I'd be more interested in swapping wheels with another 5lug Mustang and swapping driveshafts with another 5.0 to see if the problem moves. Let me know when your schedule opens up.
Thanks.

Bob found that the transmission tailshaft bushing was worn. I had replaced that a year ago, but there is no doubt that it is bad again. I replaced the bushing and seal and will see if it any better the next time I am at the track. If it wears out quickly again I will look into why it is failing so quickly.

Thank Bob!

I think.....I know the drive shaft is out of balance since the weight has been ripped in half on the front of the shaft. That will cause the bushing to wear out. There.....I fixed it. :thumbsup2:
