I did a search and found a few posts about this Mustangs Plus Grab a Trak suspension upgrade. Its seems pretty good for the price and seemed to have pretty favorable reviews on the forum. I had a few extra questions though before I order a suspension kit...

Link to the suspension kit

How does this kit compare with the more expensive NPD Street bandit kit? The street bandit kit is more expensive, as I would have to purchase the leaf springs/hardware separately.

I can add upper and lower control arms to the grab a trak suspension kit, but I dont know if I need them. How can I tell if they are necessary to replace? I know they were replaced back in 1997, the car was driven daily until 1999 or so, and then sat in a garage and driven infrequently until about a month ago, so there cant be a ton of miles on them.

For the rear springs, I can upgrade to a 4.5 leaf spring in the kit. Should I? I read that 5 is a bit too stiff, but 4.5 would be good. Will this hike the rear end up any? The kit states it will sit at stock height in the rear with a 1" drop in the front.

Just FYI, i'm currently trying to contact Opentracker for suggestions/pricing as well... Car will only be street driven with no track use...

I have the kit installed on my 72 and love it. I got the 4.5 rear leafs with standard front and 1" front sway bar and the car drives like it is on rails. The 255 50 r16 might have something to do with that too.
