Ultimate Suspension

Hey
Im looking for the ultimate suspension that i can get for a 2004 V6. I would like the car to handle really well or as well as a mustang can do. I am willing to pay up to $1500 in parts and labor. I know that there are a lot of options out there but i really dont know which one to go with. Ive looked at a couple of different packages but i really dont know which one would be best for sharp corners. Anybody have any ideas?

Im looking for shocks struts and springs and caster camber plates with sway bars. I heard that strut tower braces help a lot but i am not sure if it is worth the extra $100 to 150.

Do sway bar end links help at all or are they just a waste of $20?

each strut
each shock
cc plates

you will need 2 shocks and 2 struts
u can install every thing, but i suggest getting the cc plates instaled by a pro that way they can align the car at their shop

I would go springs, shocks, full length subframe connectors, rear lower control arms, and last but not least a panhard bar. Go with Maximum Motorsports they are the best for suspension( quality, customer service, and warranties for some parts).

Cool

You will probably have to spend more than $1500 for an ultimaite suspension setup either from Maximum Motorsports or Griggs. The cost of that type of setup will run closer to about $3000. With everything I have it ran about 1500 just for the parts not including labor.

If you want handling Id reccomend this. Get a good set of coilovers thats all you need front and rear coilovers now thats the best bang for the buck ever. then get the typicals subframe connecters, strut brace, cc plates, panhand bar

Thats badass suspension. BUT as one said above to get the best results your gonna have to spend some penny
