Suspension Advice

Hi just looking for advice regards a suspension setup.

My intentions/goals for the next 2-3 years are as follows:
Eibach front and rear sway bars
KOOKS LTH
Airlift suspension kit (i live in speedbump city where my ride at stock height hits bumps on occasion!)
Brembo brake kit
McLeod RXT clutch
Either a Whipple SC or an Edlebrock Stage 1 from Brenspeed - just cant decide!
(Maybe at a future point forged internals to push the hp beyond 500 safely)

Im not going to take the car to the drag strip and maybe once in a blue moon ill take it to the local track for a spin. All this is just to have fun on the street. Its not my daily driver, just something to give me a big *** grin when i get in.

I was going to go mostly with Whitelines products but the bloke that owns my local performance shop said to stay away from their stuff as its prone to failures... I did google it and he seemed to be right although nearly all the posts regards this are from 2013, nothing recent. Any thoughts on this? He recommend CorteX parts. I'd probably go with their Watts link.

What i'd like opinions on is simply what to get (brand) and more importantly how necessary they are given my intentions with the car.

Eg)
BMR Subframe Connectors
BMR A-Arm support brace
BMR Chassis Brace
BMR Radiator Support
BMR K-Member
Cortex (or other brand) Watts link
Swarr Automotive Rear Support
Any recommendations on UCA & front (ford racing?) and rear (eibach pro alignment) LCA's.

Appreciate any and all opinions and advice.

Have a great weekend!

Grover,

Are you familiar with Steeda? If not, you can check us out there - Ford Mustang Parts & Performance | Steeda Autosports | Free Shipping!.

We have been in the Mustang game for over 25 years & have a lot of experience with suspensions.

Based on everything you mentioned above, we can put together a heck of a package for you & have our suspension experts dial your car in.

If you would like, you can send me your contact info & I can have Rod prepare a quote for you.

The nice part about going with Steeda is ... all of the parts will work well together & perform the way they were intended.

I look forward to hearing from you & working with you.

Best Regards,

TJ

I can recommend a few of the BMR and Steeda pieces you are looking at:

Subframe connectors



BMR K-Member, A-Arm Support Brace, Chassis Brace, Radiator Support and A-Arms



I went with a Steeda UCA with BMR UCA Mount



And my Air Lift Performance suspension too!

Aired out here.



Front Strut



Rear Bag



Shock



And finally compressors, tank, manifold and water traps in the tire well.
