you don't need a watts link. hell, you don't even need lca's according to them. the biggest improvement they saw in rear end handling was JUST from the relocation bracket. they had a watts link on their car, they took it off since it wasn't needed to save weight.

according to them, all you need, is more tire on the road (18x10's), their bilstien monotube setup, and lca brackets. this was their advice to me being a guy that's on track in some form or another almost weekly (I hit road courses, autocross, shifter kart tracks (yes in my mustang, very autocross like), and the dragstrip.
Where are these auto crosses and how much are they? Id be down to take my car to one

Interesting. I need new tires. So maybe some 18x10 square setup is best. I do like staggered though.

Just lca relocation brackets makes things a lot cheaper too. Wonder if anyone else can comment on these recommendations

Here's my suspension setup. It works well. Mines a V8, but it would work well on a V6 too.

Do you have the monotube setup already? I'm interested but I'd like to know what the drop would be front and back on our v6. The only numbers I saw were for the 5.0 (3/4" front, 1 1/2" back)

Bilsteins are shocks and struts and on thier own do nothing to lower a car

Sorry, I was under the impression he was talking about the kit which includes springs.

Do you have any sources on that? Would be an awesome thing to be able to say haha...
