KYB shocks and struts provide top notch results, unbelievably cheap.
-I know that some would disagree, others agree but I can purchase ANY set of shocks and struts that are available but the KYB's are perfect through and through.
-The new orange KONI's have my attention right now too.

Spend the 25 bucks and buy a set of eibach camber bolts to help keep everything lined up and make the alignment easier.

not camber plate, but camber bolts...and you don't really need them at that type of a drop unless you want to get back to zero camber....that's personal preference...if you like drag racing that's awesome, but if you like cornering and street use a couple negative degrees will see better results for grip. in the end it comes down to what you want out of the car

no i don't use camber bolts...i do plan on C&C plates later on just so i can adjust a bit more come track season, but for now i've got it set to about -2 camber.

you should check out the corner carving sticky if you like suspension stuff..the first portion is a budget build that got me through highschool

yeah it's a decent setup for lower budgets...if you can afford springs and you want more performance out of your setup i'd go that route, but if you're trying to save some cash you can't go wrong with cut ones lol. good luck with your build and keep us up to date

Those are Fox Body. it is a preference only. I used Fox Body springs and shocks/struts. They will work no problem, with no modifications, and will work quite well. I used them and my suspension is absolutely perfect. To help make your suspension exactly how you want it, I recommend you call any Mustang shop in your area and ask them. They install the parts daily and will give you confidence in your decision.

In my opinion, these would need to be cut. They were created to support the V8 which is over 100lbs heavier up front. FYI-

Just buy new springs. I know it's cheaper to cut but save up some more cash and buy new springs. You'll be much happier. The ride confort is going to be much better with new springs and cornering is going to be more fun with a set of eibachs or HRs.

i'd go with the SR's if you can swing the cash..or save till you can. don't get me wrong i love cut springs for drag applications, but for the build you want a stiffer spring would be nice.

If you want them for cornering and appearance, buy new ones, doesn't really matter what brand as long as they aren't Chinese lol. But if you're just going for looks them just cut.

Not true lol...cut springs are great performance springs for certain types of racing

Here you can see every combination of springs, shocks/struts, any suspension combination for our Mustangs: Lowering Spring Picture Database (add your pic)
-Take a look. Keep researching. A good drop, well handling, perfect suspension is somewhat expensive.

That's a really good price. Just labor? I think you can do shocks and struts yourself.
