Roush SC here. I run Eibach pro-kit lowering springs with Koni Orange struts and shocks. I also have BMR relocation brackets with LCAs and UCA with bracket. No spinning at all. The Toyo R888's in the rear help a lot too.

What size you running on the toyos front and back? I was looking into those ones also. Use them as a dd also?

285/35/20 on the rear. I'm running Goodyear F1:G2 on the front because the Toyo's didn't come in a good size for the fronts and the Goodyears still have a lot of tread left. I DD the Toyo's and have no problems. They provide exceptional traction for 550rwhp

Thanks man. I'm going to look into your setup. I currently am running nitto555 on mine. I want something different because I don't know if those will be good. I will be trying them out sometime next week after install though

You'll blow away the 555's. Get some good tires (R888 is really more of a road race tire, but they have great traction regardless) and worry about suspension later.

If it were me, I'd get the Whiteline rear sway bar (for the inside wheel/tire clearance) and some 15x10 wheels w/ some DOT drag slicks to run when you feel like launching.

2002 C5 Z51. MCS 2WNR TT2 coilovers, 18x11 Forgestars, 315's, yada yada. Built Z06 T56. Bolt ons. Coming soon to a CAM event near you.

2013 F150 6.2L. 9mpg.

This is what we're running on UPR's 2011 GT Turbo. It runs 9.73 @ 137 on 275/60 drag radials.

We run the VMP TVS, it hits very hard on the launch, considering the minimal amount of boost that we run.

The key ingredient is good suspension geometry, and a stickier than stock rear tire. We use, and I typically recommend the following:

BMR-SP009 - Lowering Springs
BMR-PHR006 - Adjustable Panhard Bar
BMR-TCA019 - Lower Control Arms
BMR-CAB005 - Relocation Brackets
BMR-UTCA032 - Adjustable Upper Control Arms
BMR-UCM002 - Upper Control Arm Mount
Strange Front Struts
Strange Rear Shocks
FRPP GT500 Upper Strut Mounts

Here is our car with those components:




Here is Coffeeman's 8-Second Car, with similar components:

Record! 940 WHP ProCharged Mustang 5.0 - Coffeeman Power By The Hour - 8.97 @ 152 mph - Road Test TV - YouTube


If you have any questions about BMR Suspension components, please do not hesitate to ask!

Happy modding and launching.
