Hello Guys,

some of you have a drift project with a SN95 V8 mustang?:headscratch:

I have a 1994 Mustang GT and I want to get a full adjustable drift coil over kit for it, I am trying to develop a drift project with my car and I already improve my LSD, the next step is to improve the suspension.

Can you please recomend me some suspension Brand or parts?

Thanks you

Start here

That'll keep Ya busy for a while.

And for those people wanting to learn or drift in their local area, just Google for drifting forums/clubs/organizations in your area. They're just about everywhere now.

I realize that it is considered common knowledge that drift cars need coilovers right off the bad (I think this is because of the ricers who LOVE coilovers) but you don’t need a very complex/adjustable suspension to go drifting.

A suspensions job it to control loads, that’s it. Loads increase and you transition from one load to another quicker and more often in a race situation. The faster you go the higher the loads and the faster the transitions. The thing is that the loads in drifting are very low and the transitions happen quickly but there is not much load during them. Because the tires are always unhooked they have very little load on them. You need traction to have load. The front doesn’t see much load either because you go sideways into the corner which prevents the front end from loading up much.

A good drift setup only needs to do a few things.
  • It needs to be able to transition quickly without the chassis needing time to settle down. Lowering the car and running higher rate linear springs as well as swaybars will allow you to transition smoothly because the suspension won’t be flying through its considerable stock travel. You want linear springs (not progressive) because they will be consistent through their travel which will translate into more feel and confidence. I would go with the Steeda Comps. Most of the available swaybars are similar so you almost can’t go wrong. What is important is that they are adjustable.
  • You need to set the car up so it oversteers like crazy. The best way to do this is by having adjustable swaybars. You can dial in as much oversteer as you want. This will allow you to get the rear unhooked easy and when it regains traction it will do it smoothly opposed to snapping back straight.
  • Adjustable shocks are nice to have but if you can’t spring for a set of good coilovers right away it doesn’t mean you can’t go drifting with what you have. As long as the shocks damping range is matched to the springs correctly you can just install them and get on with driving.
  • Lastly you want rear control arms. The control arms with the solid heim joints will give you the best performance but they are loud. At a minimum you want arms with urethane bushings or put urethane bushings in the OEM control arms and box in/weld them so they won’t twist and flex. It is very important that the rear end does not move around because of flex in the control arms. If things are flexing back there it makes transition very difficult.

That’s all I can come up with right now (3am).

If you can answer these questions and PM me them I can steer you into a more specific setup.
  • You are driving a New Edge Fox 2 chassis car correct? GT I assume?
  • Do you have aftermarket shocks/struts? What are they?
  • Do you have aftermarket springs? If so what are they?
  • Do you have swaybars? If so which ones.
  • What size are your rims (diameter/width)?
  • What is your suspension budget?

If money were no object I would be setting you up a lot different. I am trying to get you set up while not spending a fortune. You can always upgrade in the future when you get better.

thanks for the info Sqidd,

the answer to your questions above are:

1. I am not sure what you mean but I am driving a 1994 GT.
2, 3 and 4 question: below my suspension set up...

6. I am done with the suspension for now (some of the parts above were installed recently), I was thinking in add some shocks strut brace and Maximum motorsport K member brace, but I have the suspension development in hold since i broke the engine.:weeps
