New Parts

BilletFlow IRS Cover Brace.


Maximum Motorsports 14mm IRS Subframe Mounting Bolts.


Maximum Motorsports - Low-profile IRS sub-frame bolts


Maximum Motorsports - Front K-Member Brace


I ordered some MM full length subframe connectors when I ordered my k-member brace, but they have not gotten here yet.

I also ordered these parts the other day.
Reichard Racing 3/8" Wheel Spacer and Upgraded Lug Nut Kit [RR-WHEELSPACERKIT] - $0.00
UPR 96-04 Cobra Grill Emblem [UPR-5104] - $22.95

In a couple of weeks I will be ordering thes parts.
The complete IRS Delrin/UHMW/Aluminum bushing package - SVTPerformance
Engineered IRS Rear Steer Kit 1999 2004 Cobra at v8power.com

And then after a while I will order these and some tires.
StangSuspension.com - mm coil-over complete package - for 99-04 cobra with irs ...

I'm trying to make my car into a well handling Mustang but its getting expensive. I could put a Whipple and upgrade my fuel system for the cost of all this.

Re: New Parts

Let me know what you think of the K-Member brace. I've always wondered how much of a difference they would actually make in the feel of the car.

Re: New Parts

Does the K member brace bolt up without having their k-member? If so, I might pick it up just to add a little more stability when I add my QA1 tubular brace on.

Ya, it bolts on to your factory K-Member. This what the 1996-2004 one would look like installed from the underside of the car (they just haven't bolted it down):

I guess I will have to compare it to my QA1 and see if it has the same connections. If so, I think it will be added to the list. Great...more parts.

I 99% sure it will bolt right up to the car without removing the k-member. It looks real easy to install.

I'm going to wait until I get my rear bushing(I can't wait to tackle that job) to install all this stuff, but the people on svtperformance say that the k-member brace and some subframe connectors make a huge difference in the fell of the car, and that the k-member brace takes away the feel of the front tire seeming like they want to roll over themselves when turning sharp.

Thanks, I can't wait to get all this suspension stuff done so I can start looking at stuff like heat exchangers, ported blower, x-pipe, and other power adding mods.

I will flat out tell you they (the FL SFC) will change the feel of the car. Mine went from flexy lexy to a level feel. Before when I Would launch hard, you could feel the car flex and lean to one side. Now when I launch, you can feel the whole front lift evenly and the rear end squat down evenly. Slostang here in town also found this out when he had his welded in last week...his is a coupe and he noticed the exact same change I did. No more flex. Helped wheel hop a little too because the weight transfer is better so now it takes a bumpy road to get the hop going.

Let me ask you this, do the SFC make your tires spin/break easier. Someone told that SFC will make it harder to get traction under hard accelaration because the car is stiffer.(I guess kind of like stiffer rear springs will not let the car transfer as much weight to the rear under hard accelleration as softer springs) Not that that would really bother me as I told him that I would rather my tires spin than bounce all over the place from all this wheel hop.

BTW I hope to have all this suspension work done within 2 months but it might be 3 or so. And I need to call Stangsuspension and ask them about my subframe connectors as I ordered them Monday the week past and I got my k-member brace friday and still haven't gotten my SFC's.

Edit: BTW do the SFC's scrap on stuff easily. (Speed bumps, etc.)

SFC are only a 1" loss of ground clearance, which is really only about 1/4" because they mount up higher than your side skirts, so no, you don't really lose anything there.

As for spin easier, I say no. Because the weight is being transfered evenly now, the tires don't break lose as much as they used to. It is much more of a squat and go now.
