Road noise after suspension mods...

As a winter project I decided to redo the suspension on my 98 GT. The transformatin included all UPR products parts including upper and lower control arms, full length subframe connectors, K member and so on and so forth. The car handles and drives fantastic but there is a dramatic increase in road noise. Is this normal? Or maybe I need to look into louder exhaust But seriously I am curious if the increased road noise is normal.

You replaced soft, mushy, worn out rubber bushings with either hard poly bushings, or no bushings at all. That's going to transfer a lot more noise, vibration and harshness into the chassis of the car.

+1, it's a give and take process. Better and tighter suspension, not much absorbs it now like the rubber bushings it use to have, like mentioned.
