Finally got the money to order my coil-over kit from Maximum.

Went with Bilstein Race Valved Struts with 425lb springs up front

New C/C plates

and for the rear...2K R shocks with 650lb springs

Maximum said that was probably the best setup for my car, I'm hoping they are right. These Eibach springs and stock struts/shocks are driving me insane at HPDE's.

I'll keep you posted on how it goes once they get here.

I know I've been talking about getting it long enough, so I figured I'd finally post it when I had got it ordered. Thanks to everyone that helped me figure out the best route to take... Pearson, Shuggy, Sadler, and Jack Hidley.

I'm sure I'll love every second of track time just that much more with the new suspension.

You know I'll have to let you pro's get in there to shake it down and make any changes. :D

Congrats...its going to be a great improvement over what you had....

P.S. I don't know what other mods you have, but its my experience that Coil-overs are rounded off best with Sub-frame connectors, a strut tower bar, a shock tower bar (KB are the only one makin this now) and a steeda front sway bar. I know MM doesn't believe in sway bars, but for a car running a lower rate like yours, its a good idea...

Thanks man! I'm definitely going to do the Subframes. Tom Lewis at BananaMotorsports did an excellent job on my 4 pt cage so he'll be doing my subframes. He's a beast with a welder!

Glad to hear about the coilovers! :D Between those and being firmly planted in your seat with the bar and harnesses, you'll definately notice a difference. :thumbsup:

Thanks Don!

I'm pretty excited about it. I hope I'll feel a real difference. From what I've heard, the MM coilover setup is gold.

I guess we'll see.;)

Let me know when you want to come down. I'm booked up for the next few weeks, but any time after mid-february will be cool.

Are you doing all the install stuff yourself? I'll be glad to help out if you would like and need a lift to work with.

Thanks for offering Tom. I was going to call you to see if I could use the lift. I'm a newbie with this kind of stuff. I can change brake pads, that's about it. :) I really would appreciate your help.

I've just been working 7 days a week for the past month, so I'm out of it. I'll give you a shout Tom.

Thanks again!

Yah,
Had to save up the cash. I ordered my 5 pt harnesses also, and I'm about to order 17x9' R's and 2 new sets of tires also. Cheapo street tires and another set of track rubber to go on the 17x9's.

Just got all my goodies in today! Packaged nicely and was here within 5 business days. Can't wait to get it on the car.

Levi, you need to call MM. They have Mustangs and the supsension down to a science, and I literally mean a science. They have measurements down in the hz ranges for everything they sell and how it applies to each model year Mustang. They even go so far as to if you have any mods like a blower or battery relocated to help you with your spring rates. They are extremely technical in their knowledge because they test every possible scenario to give you the best option for your application.

Just give em a call, they know their stuff.
