hey i have a 88 gt and i just got it im sure nothing has ben changed on it so what should I do/get and how much will it cost?
Well, for ~$800, here's what I'd do:street and maybe lower it a tad and just w/e long as it rides good
budget not to high not over 800
im not doing it right now I will in the future i just want to know what to look at and im makin a list of what to get and do
yeah thats exactly what will happen im doin it all at once =P ok that should make my fox alot better huh?''Well, for ~$800, here's what I'd do:
'03 Cobra Coupe struts (low-mile used): $125
Bilstein HD shocks: $150
Bullitt/Mach 1 Springs: $100
Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber plates: $175
Maximum Motorsports Full Length Subframe Connectors: $150
Total: $700 + labor
At one point or another, I've used all those parts, and I would recommend this setup for almost exactly what you're wanting. It'll ride and handle MUCH better than stock and it won't drop the car into the weeds.
Honestly, if you put all that stuff in at once, and you didn't know otherwise, you'd think it was a TOTALLY different car.
Yeah, if you put all that stuff on at once, the all-around improvement will be VERY noticeable... handling, ride, etc.yeah thats exactly what will happen im doin it all at once =P ok that should make my fox alot better huh?''
Can you explain to me what the subframe connectors are for or what they do? I kind of know what the other stuff is but that just cacthes my attention
Yeah, I can't say the car won't rattle AT ALL anymore, but it was a significant improvement in my case. The SFC's just keep the car so much more solid. Now, there are several companies that make SFC's, but not all are created equal, so keep that in mind. I, of course, recommend Maximum Motorsports, but I've heard good things about some others as well.thats awsome man thanks!!! yeah I cant wait to get it done now lol but first I gotta fix the rust for now anyway and grab some new tires and then make sure she is solid and then the suspension is comin on but im gonna keep my eyes open for some of those things and if i see one cheap I'll just pick it up on the way =P hope it stops that damn raddle I cant seem to find anywhere on my car but its freakin loud
Yeah, I have heard many people recommend SFC's as the FIRST mod you do right after you buy a Mustang, and having done it twice, now, I have to agree... especially on a Fox. It improves virtually every aspect of driving the car by solidifying the whole structure.o im going with what you said no one here has steered me wrong yet so im good...
no im sure it will stop this rattling well maybe not I dont know where it is lol someone said it might be my cats cause im runnin to rich =| so I gotta look at it when it warms up its like 12 degrees here it sucks
hey if it turns out I have to do this little by little what would you suggest first Im kinda thinkin the SFC if it'll make her more solid
Here's the bare steel version for 79-93 at stangsuspension.comawsome now all I have to do is wire brush the rust off the bottom of the car and buy'm and have them put on
hey i typed that in Maximum Motorsports Full Length Subframe Connectors and i only saw 99 and up not 88...?
I found the shop I use on a local Mustang forum and I stopped by to check it out.ok I have asked around and really havnt gotten a real good rep shop what should I do? Ive asked some people at advance and auto etc and they all kind of collide
Yeah, the installation will almost certainly be the bigger expense. Mine were the powdercoated ones, so they spent a LONG time grinding the powdercoating off the welding points, but they can take a while to install. That's why I say get quotes first, and preferrably a place that has done SFC's before so they know what they're getting into.ok thanks man its gonna cost about 150 shipped thats not bad at all
