Howdy all! It's been quite a few years since I have been to these forums. The original 1992 T-bird LX I was working on was stolen from me while it was overseas.
I have a new project car now: a 1991 T-bird SC.
I bought it for a grand, and needed a laundry list of things replaced in order to get it up and running again. Unfortunately, one of the things needed is a ABS unit. The hydraulic part started having problems and they apparently continued to use it which burned out the rest of it.
The mechanic that I have been working with tells me that the braking system is fairly unique on these cars and that he was unable to find replacement parts. We have temporarily bypassed the stock brakes with a unit from a Crown Victoria. They work pretty good, but the ride control and cruise control no longer function. Are these modules tied into the ABS system we just bypassed?
I've tried to track down a replacement ABS unit, but the cheapest one I could find was around $1,500. Is that really the going price for these units?
I hate speed bumps.
