Ive just started hearing about this kit from ford racing,the price is real nice for whats included .Does anyone have this setup,hows the ride for a d/d?Would a set of mm or j&m lca's work well with this kit?

Well if it's anything like the factory set up on my Bullitt, it will carve corners when you want it to. Good for DD as well. I've got J&M LCA's on my car and the work well with everything.

I go to the dragstrip frequently,and want a nice balance of handling & straight line performance.I thought I wanted a full drag setup,but not sure that would be ideal for daily driving in the city/highway.Do you go to the strip at all?.Im definatly getting lca's with whatever I get.Do have the j&m's from a.m. that are 169.99? Hows the nvh with them? Thanks

If I had to spec out a good dual purpose suspension setup, it would be UPR Pro Street suspension with a combination of poly & spherical bushings, Strange 10-way adjustable shocks & struts, and springs which are neither too stiff nor too soft. That way you could set the dampeners to firm for cornering and soften them up for drag racing. The car would work well in both scenarios.

The Bullitt suspension is definitely better than the stock setup, but if you go to the drag strip...meh.

Try getting an adjustable setup if you want both drag and DD. I got eibach springs and tokico d-spec adjustable shocks/struts and can't believe the difference! When I adjust it to drag the ride is awful...but the straight line performance is amazing! And when I'm not racing, I adjust it to something more comfortable. Greatest investment I've made yet.

I have the Ford Racing Bullit suspension on my 98 GT, let me tell you what a difference. I love the fact Thats only a 1 inch drop Wich is perfect for me because the roads in Joisey suck. Plus the handling is night and day. Its fine for a DD, and it works fine for occasional strip work w/ other suspension mods. I also have the Steeda rear upper and lowers Wich help at the strip.

Philly, I put the Bullit on my 1998 Gt. Great CHEAP upgrade (only $500). Good for street DD and really helps without making the ride too stiff and get rid of the stock bouncy ride. I though Ford stopped making them though? Mine included springs, shocks, and bars. Funny thing, the front bar is smaller.

I've been looking at this one:

M-5400-A Ford Racing Bullitt Tokico Suspension kit, Speed Concepts

Any thoughts? It is for a DD and I do not want a drastic drop, just an improvement in handling.

That's the same kit. I like it, you can feel the difference. It's definitely an upgrade.
