Yea thanks man. Right now I need to buy struts and springs, shocks for the back, and a rack and pinion. And that just what I know of for now. Eventually I need to but new seats and carpet.
If I cant get PBRs for front brakes what ones should I get?
Most folks just replace the bushings on the struts, not sure you can buy new struts.
Unless you're meaning "front shocks" when you say "struts".
As to which ones - you don't have much if any choice as to caliper on the original spindles. I'd opt for something like a Brembo rotor (good quality, fairly decent price) and good pads (I rather like Wagner's ThermoQuiet pads on my cars, but that's not a 'There can be only one!' type item, thankfully!). Don't fall into the "Slots help braking!!" nonsense (for a street car), since if anything, slots eat away the pad quicker (hey, that's what they're SUPPOSED to do, to keep non-glazed pad material exposed!) and holes reduce the actual thermal mass of the rotor a small bit (making them a bit more prone to overheat). If you're braking hard enough you need the outgas holes provide, you NEED to swap to 13" Cobra brakes on the front. Period. Don't EVEN think about anything less. And if you don't need 13" Cobra brakes on the front, you don't need slotted/drilled rotors. May get them for looks, but be honest about it - it's because the look cool, and you've got enough reserve braking to take the minor loss they give you.
Unless you're doing autocross, drag racing, canyon carving, or drifting, you may want to use a one-piece assembly for the front springs and shocks (which will be erroneously listed as a "strut assembly") to make it easier. If you don't, find a local shop that'll swap the springs for you - unless you're certain you're getting new springs. Then just find one that'll assemble the set for you. Those front springs are NOT to be trifled with! And, since they're NOT struts, and don't rotate, you do have to get them aligned properly on assembly. There's tricks you can use, but it's much easier to get a pro to do it - locally, it's about $20 per assembly to do it.
I'd STILL grab a set of 93+ spindles and a set of 2003-2004 Mustang GT/V6 PBRs for the front, and while you're in doing the springs and struts, swap out the spindles and brakes, so that you can stop this car easier.
While doing the rack, I found it was a LOT easier to do the front motor mounts with the rack out. The rack was enough to get me cussing in a few more languages (picked up M'Bari while I was working on it ... even Klingon didn't have enough fire to suit me!
) so I'd highly recommend you do that also.
Go ahead and do the outer tie rod ends while doing the rack - unless they're new, then leave them and just swap them onto the new rack.
Be a good idea to get DLF's Flaming River U-Joint kit to replace the rag joint. It's On My List, but I just didn't have the extra dosh at the time I did my rack.
Be CERTAIN to flush your lines out, too! Don't want old crap eating up the new rack, after all.
