I would highly recommend the Full Tilt Boogie Racing stuff. I used that when I rebuilt the IRS in my 2001 Cobra. Their installation tooling that they offer works well. It is a lot of work, but the difference was amazing. I ended up having all the parts powder coated while apart, put in 4.10 gears, HD rear cover, 03 axles and pinion support brace.

Agree. I left my '01 Cobra stock except for '00 Cobra struts/shocks an H&R SS springs. This combo road well, but was too low. And the combo caused traction and huge axle tramp issues. But I would do it gradually if the car is primarily street driven. You lose some of the IRS' ride quality as the after-market bushings and stuff tighten things up.

The car will be primarily an autocross car. It may get driven to and from work once in a while but very far from a DD. I agree that it would be a bit rough for a street car

My Cobra is 100% a street car. With the FTBR bushings, maximum motorsports coil-overs all around and MM Tubular front control arms on stock K-member the ride is amazing. Handles great around the curves and is not harsh of a ride at all. Totally loving the ride. And the height is adjustable with the coil overs.
