Mods from SR any good?

I have seen so many products recently from the brand "SR". Lower control arms, strut tower braces, lowering spring, etc... Has anyone purchased any SR parts? If so, how is the overall quality? Everything from SR seems to be priced pretty cheap, so I was just looking for a little help.

I have SR strut tower & lowering springs. They are great!
I have heard some SR items compared to Eibach, etc. it performs well as they do.

I look at SR as a good company to buy from. And they're pretty good since they used the low prices to be brought much more than other companies.
Their items seem to sell fast compared to some other items. (High brand prices, etc)

Just look on reviews on AM. You'll be good!

We've used a ton of SR Performance parts on our AM company cars and employee cars. I can't say enough good things about them! They make quality parts at a budget cost, which is rare these days. As mentioned above, I think you'll be very happy with their parts!

Was there anything in particular you were looking at?

SR gets a double thumbs up from me.

I have installed the SR Performance underdrive pullies and 62mm throttle body....

I thought they were very very good quality and just as good as bbk if not better...

Thanks everyone for the heads up! I think I might bite the bullet and get the SR lower control arms (my wheel hop is awful) and some UDPs

Really? I'm surprised. Have you tried launching the car from a dead stop yet? It should leave a lot straighter than before. These SN95's have a lot of body twist that makes it difficult to put power to the ground.

Good stuff! Did you pick up the adj LCA's? They help a lot more with lowered Mustangs to regain the proper pinion angle. Let us know what you think once everything is installed!

Nope not yet but I think I got too hyped up with what I was told, someone on here told me I would feel a totally different feel within a block of driving. I'll try giving er a decent launch soon and let you know!

I hear ya. Most of the differences are shown when the car is pushed to it's limits. You'll find traction both around turns and in a straight line is much more stable. The car won't try to kick out nearly as much.

There's not much at all between the two. We've seen about equal gains in throttle response from each of them. It's all about preference of appearance in my eyes.

Installed a sr cai on my 94 5.0 this summer and it is a really really a good value. It comes with a thick rubber gasket to go between the mass airflow meter and flange so i was even happier. The flange came a tad bent but a ball pin hammer and pice of plywood were the only tools you need to bend it back a tiny bit. I got mine for 65$ on the Independence Day sale. The filter is quality, the stainless steel is quality; and the clamps are quality. Also use Teflon tape on your inlet air flow sensor thread. Don't try to get it threaded all the way in.

Most of the time u don't really feel much difference with subframe. Unless u do a lot of road racing with body flex and know the feel of it, then install them and do more road racing for comparison. One of those things that u only miss when body rolls and u slide out of a curve.....lol

I know the company that AM uses for their SR suspension components minus the springs. The company making them for AM is actually very good, made in the U.S. and all in house. I was actually very surprised when I saw the components on the website, I knew exactly where they came from.
