    Tow Hook Bolt Size

    Rehashing an old thread...I'm finally getting around to doing this again. I tried the 15mm but its too small. I am gonna go buy the right socket size but I want to know what size it is before I buy it. 18mm? 19mm? Remember this is an 05. Thanks guys.

    To Seafoam my V6 XLT or not?

    I used Seafoam on my 98 Mustang and I felt a difference immediately. It revved much faster and definitely felt lighter. Just be ready for a serious smoke show :)

    I've been hearing a lot of good things about www.vvme.com. From the people I know that have bought from this site have said these kits are very high quality. I plan to get my set from them.

    Tow Hook Bolt Size

    Not sure if I tried a 19mm. I could give it a shot. I just wanted to make sure I had the right socket before I tried so I don't round the bolts any more than I already have.

    Tow Hook Bolt Size

    I think so yeah. I tried so many different sizes. I think 3/4 was the size that fit best but it still had a little wiggle room, just a little. When I went to loosen it up it slipped started rounding the edges of the bolt. I'm starting to think this bolt size is proprietary to Ford lol.

    Hey everyone- I just got a bull bar and I need to take off the factory tow hooks to install it. Problem is, I can't find what size socket is needed to take off the bolts on the tow hooks. I tried standard and metric. 3/4 inch, 5/8 inch, it seems to be an in between size that is either too big...

    Bed Squeek?

    I'm hearing the same thing. I think it could be the suspension. Hop in the bed and start jumping;) IIIIIIIIII meaaann...If you try compressing the rear suspension and it squeaks then that'll give you a good starting point. At first I thought it was just the bed and the chassis rubbing somewhere...

    Adjustable Rear Bumper?

    You do have to drop the spare? Because I found 4 bolts (2 on each side) near the back corner of the frame (right above the bracket that holds the leaf springs). Are these the ones? It looks like the bottom bolt can be moved around a bit. PS. I was out there for almost an hour trying to...

    Adjustable Rear Bumper?

    Whats up all? The other day I bumped a light post but it was just enough to move the rear bumper. Now it sags a little bit. Took it to a body shop for a quote and he said that nothing got bent or broke off and these bumpers have adjustable brackets. All I have to do is loosen up a couple...

    Squealing Belts. HELP

    Hey I wanted to thank everyone for the quick responses. So...I installed the tensioner, started her up, and there was no more squealing. But after about 10 minutes of driving the squealing came back and its louder then before. I am beyond frustrated. I don't know what it is now. The belts in...

    Squealing Belts. HELP

    Hey guys- I'm new here to the forum and I thought this would be a good first question since I can't find it anywhere else. The belt on my 05 Trac started squealing about 3 weeks ago. The squealing got louder and faster as I accelerated. It finally started to fade but its still their faintly...
