Need answers quickly please, might be buying '04

I was wondering if anybody knew if the stock suspension off an '04 would bolt right on to an '01? My '01 has front and rear coilover setup from maximum motorsports. Also if I switched the suspension over would it be alright for the '01 to no longer have the maximum motorsports caster camber plates with the stock '04 suspension? I really don't want to lose my coilover system, but I also don't have the stock suspension off the '01 any longer either, that's why I will have to do the swap. Also while I'm asking questions will a 2000 cobra R hood fit on an '04? I have one on my '01 and the '04 that I will probably be buying is the same color.

Thanks for any replies
Jeff

yes to everything, but you might have to do a little bit of minor tweaking with the hood.

Thanks Firme,

Is the tweaking with the hood the same as the mod that you have to do with putting a '03/'04 cobra front bumper on a '99 or '01? Kind of like this

I'm not sure if that link worked. I got it from the south central forum titled exhaust comparison, from ArchAngel.

Thanks, Jeff

Relative to what you want to do. Lose the frontswaybar if you plan to plant the assend on a good drag launch. Throw some coilovers on it, Open track or drag. Weld in subframes, tubular k-member. tubular lower a arms. Once you have decided where to go, set up the chassis.
