first, they dont include the struts, and second, if you want your car riding on a $35 suspension at 120mph then go ahead and buy them...remember, you get what you pay for

nope, most people on here have lowering springs an performance shocks...some have a tubular front K member with the coilover conversion, but its alot higher quality than those...what are you trying to do with your car?

The reason is that they're all chinese and japanese products. The quality of steel is not the same. american and european iron is far superior to the steel produced over in the far east. That is why. If you don't believe that call a metal scrap recycler. I kow this I deal with them everyday. I work for a demolition/ environmental company. I deal with scrap yards on a weekly basis. I highly reccomend H&R Springs. I bought mine from American Muscle at americanmuscle.com they're reasonably priced and shipping is free.

you need the ones for the v8...and you will need caster camber plates...if you want to do it while your there the steeda X2 ball joint kit and bumpsteer kit are also advised

You could buy shocks, but to be honest if money isn't an option buy a kit. If you have limited funds and are just driving your car on the street. Then just springs upgrade your shocks when the old ones go out. Camber/ Caster Plates aren't a necessity unless you do some road racing, or you drive like an animal. I bought a huge suspension kit and ended up not liking my control arms and springs, so I bought another set ans swapped them out.

not true^^^ more than a 1 inch drop and you wont be able to set your camber correctly...you will have uneven tire wear and bad handling just get the CC plates they are like 175 ish from stangsuspension.com

Like I said the metal content is not as good as ours. You guys remember when you were little the difference in an old Hot Wheels car how thick the die cast frame was, and then you remember the cheap knocj offs from the dollar store the frames would break. They call it white metal. It has no carbon, which gives metal is strength. Iron has alot materials that are used to make it what it is. Like Carbon, limestone, clay, lead etc... We add these to our metals which is why are products are superior overseas they don't have the natural resources that they do. Which is why they try to buy all of our srap steel to mix it with their product to better it.

+1 You cant go wrong with maximum motorsports.
yup, cant go wrong with MM, stuff is great, but at less than 1/2 the price, and almost as good UPR is a better option.
