Koni str front/ rear. Rears show as out of stock
Looks like the Koni STR.T's are expected to be back in stock by July 24th or 25th. I know we ordered more of these quite a while ago, but every time the start of a new race season hits, Koni goes through a tone of inventory. It usually takes a few months for them to re-up on with everything. I'm sorry for the long wait, unfortunately our hand are tied on this one.

I would like to get better handling (without the stiff bumpy ride) as close to the Saleen as possible.... What parts would I need? Springs, caster camber blah blah blah? whats the best?
Dprat,

There's a few things you're going to need to match your old Saleen. To keep a smooth and comfortable ride, I suggest using the SR Performance springs. They handle well and drop the ride height 1.5" all the way around. Next you'll want struts/shocks like the Koni STR.T's for max comfort and handling. Lastly, you'll need an adjustable panhard bar to recenter the rear axle.

Camber plates or bolts usually aren't necessary for a 1.5" drop on 11-14 Mustangs. Also, there's a few other components that will increase handling and traction, but the parts above are the bare minimum and will get the job done without consequence.

I don't want to take the OP's thread too far off track, so if you have more questions, feel free to PM me directly. I'd be happy to help you out!

UPDATE:

I finally got a chance to talk to my mechanic on the phone. It seems we did have a miscommunication by texting. He gave an estimate of $200 which was good enough for me. AM is out of stock on the rears so I had to go elsewhere for them, but they have my order for the front pair

I paid the same to have Pep Boys install Koni's all the way around and an alignment here in the Inland Empire (SoCal). Definitely negotiated on the price.
