Suspension mod opinions

So im pretty much done with my engine mods for now, except udp soon. I plan on building the suspension some, the only suspension parts right now are H&R super sports with stock iso's, I plan on getting CC plates either J&M or MM, I also plan on gettin shocks and struts but im not sure what brand. any suggestions? what about fox body style, I heard something about that awhile back. What are some other mods also, I dont plan on racing but maybe every now and then, i'd like to be able to hook up though and not spin. Any suggestion would be much appreciated.

I myself am going to be swapping out for new shocks and struts when I change my brakes. My car almost has 60k miles and both of which are getting tired. Anyways, I am going to go with Tokico shocks and struts. I have a friend that has a pair of these and I fell in love. Maybe it is because my stock ones are so god aweful, but I think they are a great product. They are good for daily driving, but have that stiffness you want for performance. Just my two cents..

Tokico HP Series Strut (94-04 Mustang) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping
Tokico HP Series Shock (94-04 Mustang excl. IRS Cobra) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

As for other suspension mods. Typical would be to weld/bolt on some subframe connectors and then lower control arms.

I'm getting mixed messages a little here...

When you said "I dont plan on racing but maybe every now and then, i'd like to be able to hook up though and not spin." That sounded like straight line racing to me. But earlier you mentioned H&R SS springs and J&M or MM parts, which are geared more toward cornering.

If you'd like to elaborate on what your end goal is, we can give better advice. In the meantime, I'll mention that full length subframe connectors are a necessity, and you will notice a huge difference in traction with a k-member kit and a set of rear control arms. Of course, we manufacture top quality suspension equipment at UPR Products, and it is available on our website at Mustang Parts & Performance - UPR Products. Our suspension has a lifetime guarantee and AFM members get a 10% discount on UPR manufactured products using the AFM discount code.

I still would like to have a little cornering capabilty lol and J&M and MM are the only 4 bolt cc plates ive seen, and plus there on american muscle and pretty much all there products are good. Im thinkin prob shocks and stuts, cc plates, and probaby get some 10.5" in the back and just see what happens after that

Follow this link. I found most of the parts on the list used, and my car handles and drives SWEET now.

It's a Mustang GT. A Ford product. Need I say more?

no we used a jack to put the springs in, a compressor would have been great though
