List looks really good. Only thing I don't like are the aftermarket upper control arms. I'd return them and just get new rubber bushings for the stockers.

At any rate keep us posted on the progress and let us know how it all turns out. The 94/95 Cobra is one of my favorites and may be the best bang for the buck Mustang currently out there.

You helped a bunch and I was told getting after market uppers would help wheel hop we'll see how she does, but after I removed the quad shock to stuff 315's the wheel hop got pretty bad I'll keep you guys posted April 12 iOS the first time I'll get to drive her myself. Sottydoesntkniw you were a ton of help even though I know I didn't do exactly what you said I still read it and you were my main source and always there to help on here

The lower control arms will help the wheel hop a ton, the uppers will help with windup but the suspension can get VERY bound up going around corners and will be hell on your torque boxes. This is why I would not recommend tubular uppers. Going around a corner with the stock uppers the stock stamped ones will flex and take the stress off the torque boxes. Yeah the deflection is not good and hurts your handling but that's the inherent problem with the stock 4 link setup.

The REAL solution to this problem is a torque arm/panhard bar setup (or watts link in place of the panhard bar). Eliminates the UCAs completely, torque arm prevents windup completely/is rock solid and the panhard bar or watts link setup keeps your rear end properly centered. The watts link is more expensive but better because it keeps the rear end totally centered throughout the entire range of rear suspension travel. By its very nature the panhard bar setup will move the rear slightly to the left or right as the suspension loads and unloads but for a street car its not going to be noticeable.

You can also go to an IRS out back but you need to install a $700 bushing kit in place of all the compliant rubber stuff right off the bat or you WILL get wheel hop and that can snap halfshafts with enough power...

Nice, progress. What are you doing transmission wise? A T-5 is only going to hold up so long behind a stroker. If you are staying 5 speed I would highly, HIGHLY suggest looking over at Astro Performance and their A-5 transmissions. Conservatively rated at 585 ft lbs for the strongest one and they shift like a stock T-5 (like a hot knife through butter). Everyone says "oh my trans shifts like butter" but unless you've driven a brand new fresh T-5 you don't know what a smooth shifting trans is. Too bad they are so weak in stock form.

And if you are doing a Magnum I'd also take a look at Astro's Magnums. He does a few extra mods to make sure they have no clearance issues and can also go through the new Magnum trans and do a few tweaks if you want. It will cost you, but if you are buying a Magnum and planning to beat on it I'd say its worth considering.

Thank you Scotty that would all be way in the future but I'm thinking of a g force kit for the t-5 soon just for now. It probably doesn't need it but I definitely don't need a new trans for what I have right now.

Astro is stronger than G-force no matter what anyone tells you. The Astro gears are physically bigger.

IIRC the prices are similar. Astroperformance.com - Your Manual Drivetrain Specialist

If you are looking at a G-force now not sure why you wouldn't be looking at the Astro as well. And as I said, you are GOING to get ppl telling you they are the same or that G-force is just as strong. Its either lies or ignorance, I've seen the gears side by side and just with the naked eye you can pick out the Astro gear.
