Just picked up Eibach Pro Kit

Lucked out and just picked up an Eibach Pro Kit for $30....score!

Wanting to freshen up the suspension, what else should I get? Everything suspension wise is stock except 5-lug conversion front and rear. Cobra disc brake conversion front and rear.

Heard someone offered complete poly kit for the cars suspension, motor and Trans mount.

Suggestions on struts, upper and lowers, maybe tubular a arms? Would like to go coilovers in front eventually.

Its a general street/strip car... I like a well handling car as I don't always race in a straight line.

How are the JMR tubular control arms that LMR sells?

Also wanting the Kenny Brown Extreme sub frame system.

Has/does anyone run the Kenny Brown Matrix subframe connectors? I have a Lincoln Weld-Pak 100, would that work for welding them in and also welding the torque box reinforcements?

I haven't personally used the JMR control arms but have heard good reviews on them for struts I hear the KYB set up is nice for street use and can be adjusted for track use as well.

Or you could get the iluminas 5 way. You should be satisfied with that.

And what's your height right now?

just check material thickness and see if your welder is rated for it.but i would bet your ok. make sure your car is level when welding everything in.

Those are used on road racing cars to further stiffen the unibody.
They would just add weight to a street or drag race car.

Wrong. These cars benefit from all the bracing you can add. I have this system on my cobra and love it

No, I'm not wrong. My answer may have been a bit incomplete though and your comment does have some truth in it.


They are not really necessary on any street driven or dual purpose street/drag car and there are thousands of Mustangs out there running without them to back up my claim. Therefore IMO they would just add unnecessary weight and stiffness.


They are without a doubt stronger than just sub frame connectors and they add more rigidity to a vehicle, but you have to ask yourself if that's really a good thing in a car you will be driving on the street a lot. Uni-body cars are designed to flex and give a bit to help absorb some of the ride harshness encountered in daily driving. If you remove all of that flex and give, be prepared for a stiffer more uncomfortable ride and the need to service or replace suspension parts more often as they will be worked harder than they were before.


For most people driving on the street, they would never drive aggressively enough on public roadways or on a track often enough to realize any real benefits from them to be able to justify the expense and installation.


However anyone who wishes to do so can certainly choose to install them on their cars.
