like every on has said, stick with the stock springs especially on a mild auto car.

the 3.73's wouln't help much, but their better than 3.27's.

I got into the low, low 1.8's on 100% stock susp aside from these lowers, J&M Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms (99-04) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

& my recomendation would be the same for you, untill that is you step up the gears & put a converter in it.

you can easily go over board with susp. parts you don't need, especially on an auto car so do your home work before you drop a ton of money on stuff you don't need.

BaznastyDave JAYC pulls 1.4x-1.5x 60's on these 1999-2004 Ford Mustang Pro Series Adjustable Control Arms Package - UPR Products

you need FLSFC's (Full length subframe connectors)
Laurel Mountain Mustang - 1979 - 2004 Mustang full lenth subframe connectors

and also torque box reinforcer's
1979-2004 Ford Mustang Upper & Lower Torque Box Kits - eBay (item 270691897959 end time Jan-22-11 06:01:45 PST)

Keep the stock rear springs and cut bout 1/2 a coil off them and do Coil overs or C/O's and tubular K-member up front

BlkGt03 reps to both of you btw thanks

BlkGt03 ok wow that just scrambled my brain ha i no nothing about suspension...what are the prices like for these things
January 17th, 2011 04:33 PM
Bullitt5339 I run Maximum Motorsports XD lowers and UPR Pro Uppers, and have been happy with them.

You want double adjustable uppers, and lowers with sphericals or heim joints in both ends.

Do torque box reinforcements while you have it apart, I used the Wild Rides products on mine.
January 17th, 2011 04:31 PM
BlkGt03 no i have zero suspension work done....what ones would you recomend
January 17th, 2011 04:28 PM
Bullitt5339 Do you have upper and lower control arms yet? I would do those before anything else.
January 17th, 2011 04:24 PM
BlkGt03 ok my fastest is a 1.9 60ft and all others are 2.0s and i just have so replacement shocks in the suspenion and its an auto so idk where exactly it goes at... oh and all this is before any exhaust was put on and with 3.73 gears

We need to know what mods you have to your car's suspension, what tires you are running, and what your current 60fts are. What is the car doing off the line?

Edit: just saw your tires listed LOL

tbirdscwd What do you have done to the car? Tires? Suspension?....let's start with the rear suspension cause that is where you will see most of your improvements off the line. What do your current 60fts look like?
January 17th, 2011 04:11 PM
BlkGt03 bullitt...where did you get the springs and coilovers
January 17th, 2011 04:10 PM

That heavily pertains to this subject. You need to take your car to the track and see how it performs now and to figure out where you can improve. There is no point throwing money and parts at a car without knowing even how it performs now.
Good advice.
