I could drive my Mustang in the snow with good winter tires, but it i plan to keep it a long time and i have a 2004 Mazda 3 that's paid for and is perfect as a winter daily driver. Stored the Mustang last weekend of October and i already miss it.

Maybe one day ill consider full replacement on everything but as for now i wanna go fast in a straight line first. I listed below what im wanting to go with, I already have a set of Roush Billet LCA's cause i got a good deal on them so i bought them. Any advice from you guys that know alot more than me would be greatly appreciated. If i'm missing something that i need id like to know also, not sure if camber bolts and Strut mounts are needed with this strut. Not sure if upper control arm are needed because ive never had wheel hop to date .was gonna get the eibach pro-kit but have sense changed my mind.Thanks in advance

The Parts probably wont be here before i leave to go to work on monday so it will be a few weeks before i can get them installed but im counting down the days. With the discount i basically got the Strut mounts for 75 bucks, cant beat that...thanks Steeda for the sale and the great customer service when i called

I'm sure you will like the Steeda setup. For anyone else who runs across this thread in the future, for a straightline guy like burke, we actually recommend these Strange Engineering 10-way adjustable shocks & struts. They work REALLY WELL on the dragstrip, and they can be stiffened up for good handling on the street.

So, did you get everything installed? I am curious to hear your comments on Steeda shocks/struts and spring combo

Ok got everything on last night and snapped this this morning. Car has stiffened up real good and handles 10 times better. I took some good curves last night to test it out. It hasnt fully settled but initial drop in back is 1" on passenger side rear and 7/8" on drivers side rear and the fronts are between 1/2" and 5/8 " initially. I know theres some settling but performance wise im happy. No noticeable NVH over stock but then again im concentrated on the glorious sound coming from the tailpipes
