Is this a truck application ? You might want to be sure they're sending you
the exact right parts for a truck as opposed to a Mustang (or vice-versa) ...
this applies to both the flywheel and the clutch. If you've got a Mustang flywheel
and a truck pressure plate you could have some problems like this.

Also wondering how you identified the HO on the 84 motor ? Or is it out of
a GT ?

Subject: Urethane vs Rubber

Its time to replace the body mount bushings on my '88 BII. What would
be the Pros/Cons of switching from rubber to urethane? Also, while I'm
at it, I'm probably going to stack an extra bushing on the tops of all
of the mounts to lift the truck an inch or so... Does anyone see any
problems with this?
Thanks!!

Pros : Urethane lasts longer, you can get it in cool colors.

Cons : Increased Noise/Vibration/Harshness (NVH), could squeak when cold/jolted
suddenly.

I'm not sure how the mounts in your truck work, but you'd have to check to be
sure the bolts are long enough to secure that or replace them with some that
are long enough. remember a body lift will change linkages and such so it may
require some readjustment.

I don't plan on the lift being more than about an inch or so. If
anyone has had problems with linkages with a 1" body lift, let me know!
Thanks!

I didn't mean you'd have to change anything in the sense that the stock parts
won't work, just that the linkages might not work quite like you would expect
(ie Park may be Reverse or something equally surprising the first time you start
it) because as you lift the body the linkages will pivot (hopefully) and their
travel might move just enough to cause some minor adjustments to be needed ...
can't guarantee this will happen, but just something to be aware of in the back
of your mind.
