suspension is finally installed!

so finally, after a long 8 months, i finally have my suspension installed! installation was pretty easy, even tho it was 105-110 degrees outside in the sun. installed the yellows, steeda springs, and also the J&M camber caster plates. i went and got it aligned today and set the fronts to 1 turn and the rears to 1/2 turn and WOAH. i am amazed at how incredible the car feels. no bucking on acceleration or braking. absolutely no body roll that i can feel, and the ride actually seems smoother besides for when you hit a bump lol. ill be posting up pix of it once i get my new hood on (hopefully tm) and get it cleaned up. i cant wait to get these things on a track or auto-x and really stiffen it up.

Oh ok lol. The way you stated it made it seem like it took you that long to install it. But did you lower the car with the new suspension? And when you can post up pictures.

it was around a grand for everything iirc. the konis really are top of the line and theyre amazing. after having the springs on for awhile tho i decided i dont like the height and want to go lower, especially since non mustang ppl cant even tell the difference. im thinking about going with the eibach pro kits.
