Ford Mustang Questions

  • Yes, there should be a washer of some type between the spindle nut and the bearing on your trailer. The washer protects the back side of the bearing from the edges and points on the back side of the spindle nut. There are several types of spindle washers available depending on the spindle configuration on your trailer. The Washer For 1 inch Spindle, # SW1000, is typically used on spindles that have a castle nut, like # 165686, and a cotter pin, # 165649. A D washer, #...

  • Yes, you can correct the vibration in the K-Source, # KS80800, towing mirrors. if you push in on the bottom of the mirror all the way, you will then be able to see a Phillips head bolt in the gap that is exposed at the top of the mirror. Tightening this bolt a small amount will make the mirror much more stable. I pulled one of these mirrors and did a short video showing how to do this for you. One final note, the Phillips head bolt has a nut on the other end so do not loosen...

  • All of the hitches that are available for your 2012 Ford Mustang GT will install in basically the same place and they will not stick out too far.

Since we do not carry the 1Up USA bike racks I can not speak on their behalf to confirm to you that it will work with a Class I hitch. Realistically it should, but you will need...

  • This Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Carrier # TH934XTR can handle 150 lbs of bikes on the carrier. As long as your bikes weigh less than that, you should have no problem at all using this rack to transport your Genesis Onyx and Huffy Butterscotch bike. I would recommend that you put the heavier of the two bikes on the cradle that is as close as possible to the back side of the vehicle. This will put the least amount of strain from leverage on the rack and your hitch. I attached...

Both hitches install the same and have the same specs: 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight capacity. Both are Class I trailer hitches with a 1-1/4...

  • We have not installed a Yakima roof rack on a 2004 Ford Mustang, but Yakima has. I included a pictured showing the rack installed.

  • I checked with Yakima and if your spoiler on your 2000 Mustang GT looks like the one in the picture I have included then you can use the KingJoe Pro 2, # Y02624, or 3 bike model, # Y02625. No other trunk mounts will fit.
