Back in the states and new parts

Hey guys, I've been absent for a while. Just got back from a 2 year tour in Okinawa, Japan. I've been back for a little over a month and finally got around to installing all the parts I've accumulated. Mostly suspension parts and I still have to install my Wilwood brakes this weekend.

Swapped my CS/Boss facia with one from Roush.


Ground Control coil overs


Ground Control CC plates


Whiteline front sway bar


Front installed


Rear set up


Whiteline lower control arms


Whiteline rear sway bar


Whiteline watts link


Diff cover installed


Wattslink installed


Here's how she sits now.


Still need to install these badboys




2011 Grabber Blue GT
Performance: Bassani Longtubes, Bassani Catback, JLT CAI, Boss intake manifold
Suspension: Ground Control coilovers, Whiteline front and rear sway bar, lower control arms, relocation bracket, wattslink, Steeda strut tower brace
Apperance: Saleen grille, Roush front facia Roush side and rear splitters, GT500 rear valence, GT500 rear spoiler, Forgestar F14 20x9 20x11

Glad to hear you're back! ...While you were away, I attempted to make the candy-red version of your car (power-wise)... LOVE the Bassani.....But now you've blown me out of the water again. Great job. haha ..That suspension settup looks sick. And that BOSS Fascia looks perfect on your ride.....At least we have one thing between us - NO MORE CALIFORNIA LAWS!!

Hey ChiZ. Well I the boss facia is in my garage now, the Roush is currently installed. I'm debating on getting the CJ setup and try for more N/A hp.

Oh, yeah I was just looking at the 1st picture where you have the 2 side by side. I guess I shoulda said the BOSS one "will" look sick on your ride.
I thought about getting that fascia as well, but with the car already lowered, i feel like I would bottom the **** out of it every time I go in and out of the driveway or over speedbumps...

The CJ settup would be interesting - It'll be an expensive journey!...I look forward to your install thread when/if that happens! ...As for me, after the BOSS intake, larger TB and CAI, etc...I'm kinda over spending lots of cash on minimal N/A gains...I'm saving up for the ProCharger. Enoughs enough. haha

This is the same Suspension set up I'm about to purchase. Can you tell me are the Coilovers adjustable at all besides just ride height?

Thanks.

Nice work

Nice Mods.

Let me know how rough the watts link ride quality is.

Also good to see another Late Model Mustang Wilwood user.

I'm not sure if I'm selling or not. I like keeping all my stock parts. Plus I really don't want to ship it.

You can also adjust the dampening of the shocks/struts.

I'm surprised no one's asked about how the ground control coilovers compare to the konis you had on there...I know you added to the suspension with all the Whiteline parts...give us your review!!!
