So that took about forever. Had to get all the parts in, had to get them installed..and then I had to wait for my mother to return my digital camera (she was on vacation with dad). Anyway..here she is..with me attached.

Looks really good. These cars look great when they are clean. Been driving 2276 in the rain for 5 days now and IMO Black is UGLY when really dirty.

Maybe I can wash and detail her today.

does the spacers hurt your cornering any? and did it void any part of the warranty?

would like to put them on mine but not interested in hindering my warranty.

As for cornering..although I only got to drive it for one day before it snowed here...it seems to improve it substantially. Because it widens the the stance..it gives it a larger surface area to distribute the weight over.

I don't think the spacers voided anything. I had the ford dealer do it while they were putting on the mud flaps and changing the rims out. I asked about that and they didn't not mention anything. I have heard from others though, that if you go over 40mm it causes extra stresses on the hub and the axel. So, that could be true. I kept it to 30mm which is ample to achieve the goal of making the rear tires flush with the fender wells.

Hope that answers your question. If you are ever coming to Laramie (in the summer), because I don't drive it in the winter, give me a ring and we can go cruzing with the other two bullitts in town.

Bulittt, Karl has some albums he made up on Webshots showing Bullitt owners cars. :smile:

They're located here; http://community.webshots.com/user/kfengler1


Bullitt1853, great photos and just in case you pick up any rear axle issues, take off the spacers before hitting the dealer. It'll save any possible arguing. :wink:

I purchased the H&R 30mm spacers from Maximum Motorsports. Their phone number is 1-805-544-8748. Their website is www.maximummotorsports.com
I paid $169.95 plus $8.95 for UPS ground shipping.

I have heard from other club members that other companies have spacers for a cheaper price, but from my inquires around other racing fans, they all like H&R brand better than the other brands for reliability and performance. In the end it is up to you if you want to go for the other brands of not.

Installation was very easy, wheels off, check for rust (remove if necessary), put on the spacers, tighten five lug nuts, put the wheels back on, tighten five more lug nuts.

If you are going to put spacers on, I would recommend also getting some type of mud flap for the rear wheels. The spacers push the wheels out further, and therefore cause the tires to throw dirt, rocks and mud onto your rear bumper assembly. Eventualy you will get lots of little flecks and chips in your paint if you don't protect the paint with the mud flaps. Hope this helps. :smile:

I'm very pleased with my H&R spacers. They may cost a little more, but what price can you put on a quality product? :wink:
