i have a 90 ranger and i just put a body lift on it and now when i drive it the spedometer bounces around alot and it makes a ticking sound is this because my spedo cable is not connected properley or do i need a new one ?

thanx for the help

maby you stretched the cable when you put on the bl. check to make sure it is tight in the back of the dash.

sometimes they pull out of the back of the speedo

could be a fray in the cable and now is catching due to different cable positioning. best cure to the problem is to turn up the radio and stop looking at the speedo.
