Suspension really isn't something you wanna cheap out on. You get what you pay for, and with cheap suspension parts you really don't get much. It's really not the sort of work you wanna do twice, and if cheap parts now only end up leading to better parts later then in reality you really haven't saved anything. I apply that thought process to just about everything, but with suspension in particular being somewhat of a safety item (think about what might happen if something breaks or the car doesn't react to the road and your inputs as intended at 100 mph) I really try to steer people away from cheaping out. I'm a middle of the road shopper, myself.
Doesn't mean you have to spend top dollar for MM stuff, but like Jon mentioned UPR are in about the same price range as what you're looking at and all their stuff is pretty decent.
I haven't seen Sharad around in a coon's age, but there is also a 5% forum member discount you can get through UPR. Think you have to call their 800 number and speak to somebody to get it.
The classifieds here kinda suck, but you may want to look over at Corral.net, Mustangforums, Moddedmustangs, SVTP etc and see if there's any deals on some slightly used stuff. Always good to check that option out especially when you're on a tight budget.
