New Owner 1999 Mustang GT convertible

Just purchased 1999 GT convertible one owner with 69k on it. The car is factory original with no aftermarket parts. I am wanting to lower car with ford C springs, install saleen style 18/9 10 staggered wheel tire package, J&M caster camber plates, tokico shocks struts, cold air intake kit, & convertible styling bar. Have read through numerous post on here trying to figure out best bang for the money. Wondering if anybody else on here have installed exact same parts, and if they are happy with results. Also need to know if I have forgotten anything that I might need to make this look and ride the best. Thanks for any advice provided, foyboy.

Preference I guess. I have Tokico shocks and they're great. I wish now that I had spent the extra money on the springs and went Eibach coilover, not that I have a bad ride now but I want a little stiffer ride. The look is there though if that's all that matters though. As far as caster/camber I went with motorsport no bushing style. They're great too but I have to get the car aligned I still haven't done that yet so the tires flex outward

Thanks for the information. Not worried about performance, wanting to get the look of a saleen. Wife and daughter will be driving car most of the time. Want to get the look and ride right first, then worry about performance.

This thread...... http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...al-thread.html .....should be right up your alley.

The stuff you have listed sounds good. If you want you can save a little coin and scrap the cold air for a K&N drop in filter, unless you just want something pretty under the hood.
