Drift suspension.

I need help in finding the right place/website that sets me up with options with tuning my mustang for it to be able to drift. When i say tune, i mean upgrades . Thanks any feed back from experience would help a lot.

You need a traction lock. Also, lowering your Mustang would help. After you get a t-lok installed, all you gotta do is floor it and pull the e-brake. Have fun!

Its a lot more extensive than flooring and pulling the e-brake if u did that you definitely smack a wall right away. Lol

Well I'm giving him the basics lol. I realize that it's more extensive but he wanted a short answer.

Go to Maximum Motorsports and get their suspension kits.

I use them for all my suspension. Right now I have:

Subframe connectors
Rear Lower Control Arms
Panhard Bar
Torque Arm

All from Maximum Motorsports. It doesn't seem like a lot, but it's much better than your average spring/sway bar set up that people get... and within the next week or so I will be getting their coilover conversion kits

Yeah i have been lookin all morning already. I have been thinking about getting the full rear kit, lower and upper. Subframe connectors and other little things. I think that should stop some body roll. Also been thinking about differential. Or might just have a shop weld it.

Drift suspension.

Get a locked differential. I don't know a lot about drifting but my guess is something that stays locked. So I'd go with a Locker, I'll personally be going with a Torsen since they are better for AutoX and road racing, but they don't stay locked 100% of the time. Also upgrade to an 8.8 rear end.

You want to eliminate the body roll and tighten up the whole chassis. Look I to Stiffler subframe connectors and their web brace.

My a Torque Arm took out my upper control arms as well as my quad shocks, I know it's great for cornering, but not sure about drift.

My guess is as good as yours wen it comes to drifting. But i would imagine if your putting your car through sharp corners at high speeds , a racing setup and drifting setup should not be to far apart wen it comes to handling except for the angle in the front.

If they are similar in that aspect look into a Torque Arm and Panhard Bar set up, or if you want to spend a bit more for better go with a Watts Link instead of Panhard Bar.

Was wondering about drifting upgrades too as I did my first donut in mine this week and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Thanks for the thread and answers guys.
