Last year, I learned that when I have a passenger with me in the Mustang, the additional weight can cause the tires to hit the lip of the quarter panel. The contact caused some damage to the passenger side tire. Since both sides are about equal distance from the tires, I decided to trim an 1/8th an inch off each quarter panel lip to see if it and the new shocks help or if I must get some different springs.
I used a set of calipers set to 1/8" and used them to scribe a mark to ensure I trim an even amount.
I decided against trimming using an cutting wheel. Instead, I used a 60 grit flap wheel to essentially grind off enough metal. This gave me a smooth surface and allowed me to grind up to exactly my mark and then bevel the sides of the cut just a little.
While I was working on the car, I decided to spray down the rear leaves with some WD40 Silicone spray. The leafs make squeak noises and this seemed to take care of it. The stuff I used is suppose to be water resistant so I'm hopeful it will last a while.
