On the subject of tires, are there any all seasons you like? We get snow here up north and I can't do summer only.

Yeah I have some BF Goodrich g-Force comps on my wife's car, those are awesome tires.

I figure I have another 10,000 miles before I have to change them.

well it is a complete package yes but all components of that package aren't the best. better than stock but still eh.. If your going to shell out money get some good quality stuff. Eibach springs are nice, bmr springs are nice, I'm running both on my car now. Bmr rear and eibach front. Bilstiens will give you the best ride without making it complicated with adjustable dampening and rebound settings. Skip the sway bars because the bilstiens will control your roll enough. Get a watts link because it makes the car feel like sex. I have the whiteline one, because I think it has better ground clearance than the versions that attach to the axle tubing. I daily drive mine so I thought that would be important.

I like my eibach pro system plus, but this is the first car that I have done suspension work on, so I can't compare to other manufacturer's struts, shocks and sway bars. If you want to maintain comfortable ride quality, just do the eibach pro springs. I drove with just the springs for a year or so and the ride quality was great. If you go with the full package, you will notice a big difference if you drive on bumpy roads. Just the springs with the stock shocks and struts was a mild difference but upgrade everything then it is night and day difference.

2014 Mustang GT 6R80, Procharger Stage 2 D1SC, BBK 85mm TB, Boss IM, Sai Li fuel system. Circle D 3C, 1-7/8" Kooks Long Tubes w/Offroad X Pipe, Lethal Over-Axle Pipes, Corsa Quad Axle-Back, Eibach Pro System Plus, BMR K member, Shaftmasters DS, Forgestar CF-5 Wheels and Nitto NT05 tires. Lund Tuned

Lots of suspension goodies and some other stuff I can't remember.

Might have to go with your setup, sounds interesting. Are you using caster/camber plates, GT500 strut mounts or what?

Thanks for the information.

Looks like I will be doing this in two phases. Just ordered my whiteline watt's link setup today (plus the royal purple gear oil). The struts, shocks and springs I will do in the spring.
