Question..99-04 gt vs v6 suspension

I found a 8.8 rear end in a crashed 00 mustang gt at a local junkyard I plan on buying it, I was wondering when I grab it tommarow should I take the suspension also? are the v6's and gt's in 99-04 suspension all that greatly different or are they the same?

the springs are different by a tiny bit but.. if you are going to replace the springs go with better after market springs.

You could grab the shocks/struts if you watned (or just rear shocks). remember the GT's have an extra set of little shocks, the quad shocks. You dont need them but if you do get them there is a bracket I think you have to take off where they attach to the body/frame.

Rear sway bar may be different also.

Re: Question..99-04 gt vs v6 suspension

Wish I could find a GT in a junk yard...closest thing in 35 miles is a 00 v6 that I pulled a shifter boot out of, lol.

Yah check the condition of the shocks and springs if you really want them...they could be pretty worn or blown and not worth the time. Generally most go with aftermarket lowering springs and shocks/struts. The GT stock stuff doesn't lower the car any more than the stuff on the v6's.

older GT sway bars work as well, I put a 96 mystic cobra sway bar on my 01 v6, worked fine

Damn son, after you already put 4.10's and a tlok in the 7.5" rear?

You must plan on pushing some serious numbers in the near future...

7.5's are fine as long as you dont take them to the drag strip (at least not with the stock locker as that the weak point)
