Maximum Motorsports Rear Control Arm Installation #FairmontProject

Previous video in the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdubsr2dSNg

It became clear after talking with the engineers at Maximum Motorsports that my rear suspension wasn’t going to hold up to the power I was putting to it. That ended up being a very expensive conversation, but it also means that the #FairmontProject will have a very capable suspension when I’m done with it.

I’ve been learning a lot about Fox bodies during the course of this build. One of the things I learned is that the suspension components from Maximum Motorsports are great. I’m not saying this because they paid me to. I’m saying it because I believe it to be true. After all, building Mustang suspensions is ALL they do. You’d think they’d be good at it by now.

Special thanks to Jack Hindley and Kolton Sinclaire for all their help.

  1. Next time working on the driver side raise the passenger side rear end on one side will make life easier and Prybar.. didn’t this easy on the floor lol

  2. I feel your pain on getting those lower fasteners through the holes. Major pain in the ass. Especially once the Panhard Bar is installed. The diff won’t want to budge at all. I’ve been there eric.

  3. when go to align it, make sure you add weights to the drivers side equal to your weight. this way you will track straight at the strip. Guess you know this already.

  4. Torquing on the ground doesn't matter for a polyurethane bush.
    A metalastic bush with rubber bonded to the metal will be in torsion as the control arm pivots and therefore needs to be torqued in the resting position, but a poly bush just rotates.

  5. Eric….I think to make up the money lost for some viewers not watching or enjoying the fairmont series as much as repair videos….you need to race to make some money hahaha jk

  6. I saw a YouTube on those arms by maximum motor sport they have other arms without the swaybar mounts and ones rated for six hundred plus hp those ones look to be the four hundred plus arms, you might want to swap them for the higher rated ones.

  7. Eric, diid you forget to wobble it after the swap? Also – did you consider using scales to weigh your Oliver when adjusting springs?

  8. Erick and steady hand Brian, did a fine job. It was amusing my thoughts when you were shaking Peak-a-chu to put music to that clanking noise. You guys rock. Stay Dirty !!.
