    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    It's time to replace the front brakes and rear shocks after 33,000 miles. Any suggestions on aftermarket upgrades or stock replacements for both? I think I might want a firmer rider and response than stock, most noticeably up front, so struts/springs may come into play. Looking for input...

    Hey all, Really want to lower the GT and see if I can eliminate a lot of the annoying squat and general floaty-ness I kinda don't like about the car. The main challenge is, of course funds. Figure if I can save $300-400 installing it myself why not. So I'm looking over any installation...
