That may work better for you, mine is a 2007, so chances are my tranny looks brand new inside and has a lot of life left, but considering yours is 13 years old, I would do the drain, filter change, and fill.

Just some drawn up prices from Firestone
Fluid flush - $165
Filter change and flush - $256

Pulled it out of the garage and parked it in the driveway so I could work on my '87 Crown Victoria today -- changed the oil and vacuumed the interior and trunk.

Patiently waiting for my leather steering wheel from Tasca Ford -- I sure hope the wheel on my Ranger comes off easier than the one on my F-150 did.....

I knew it wasn't spindles. Your lower arms are angled down too much for stock. Lol where are you going for school?

It does stiffen the suspension but not anymore than lift coils do.
Moving away from home?
