howard cox <gto64gto@xxxxxxxx>: Mar 20 10:06PM -0400

I had my PS box on my 65 Satellite rebuilt by Firm Feel to stage 2 and used their tubular upper control arms. I have been really pleased. I think it might be your tires.

I had a Firm Feel Stage II box on my '64 Sport Fury and liked it but I wanted something stiffer so I went to Stage III on my '63 Sport Fury. World of difference. I've gone back and forth between bias ...more

Thanks for the info. I wish this thing WOULD drive at least as good as a
new 63. I've never had ANY car drive this bad. I have had more 60's mopars
than I can count and never had this kind of ...more

Hi Doug

stage two P/S box. I also asked them for ...more

The Ehrenberg article I referred to is in the Feb. 2016 issue of Mopar
Action. It is Titled: "Front End Voodoo.

The Ehrenberg article has alignment settings for various use, from little old lady to drag race only.
 
Daily driver is -0.5° camber, +2.5° caster and 1/16 to 1/8" toe-in
 
Hi-po street is -1.5° ...more

Doug,
 
The issue if following every dip and groove and your "herding" the car is
the nature of bias play tires. When I got my first car...a 73 Dart sport,
it had bias ply tires on it. ...more

Personally I wouldn't change any more parts until I found the source of the
overheating problem, as suggested by Gary and others. I would instead go
back to what changed and investigate from ...more
