Thanks Tom. When you do the leaf springs I would recommend using a cut off wheel & not messing with a sawzall. The cut off wheel was fairly easy to cut the bolts if yours do not come out.
Today I reinstalled the rear end housing.

Here is a pic of the rear end housing installed. Today I installed the center differential housing, new Koni rear STR T shocks, tightened the rear leaf spring attaching bolts, u bolts, shackle bolts, removed the old steel brake to the rear, & the old rubber brake line to the rear end housing.

Today I rolled the Mustang out of the garage so I could clean the paint off the rear floor pan area to get it ready to weld in the dual exhaust reinforcement panels. Here is a pic how how it sat with the old rear leaf, & front coil springs.



Here is how it sits now with the new 1" lowering mid eye rear leaf, the 1" lowering front coil springs, & the Shelby/Arning UCA drop.
