Roll cage and struts

Does anyone have a roll cage in their stang? im looking to go the 6 point cage very similar to maximum motors sports cage with a diagonal brace. Would it be cheaper to get someone to build me one or to just order the MM one and have it installed. I also want to get it painted but i dont know much about cages and how they are assembled inside the vehicle and i want to do the painting myself. And i would like to know clearance issues with any a cage would have with the factory seats and eventually a set of either corbeau forzas or cr1s. And as far as struts i believe i am in need of them. when installing my caster camber plates i didnt have to drop the bottom, we easily pullled down the top of the strut with our hands and put the plates on. Any suggestions on a good set? im not to familiar with suspension either. Thanks i love this website

as far as suspension goes, MM makes some of the highest quality parts you can buy.

Re: Roll cage and struts

Bilsteins or Tokico HP's are a good non-adjustable shock/strut for the car...If you are looking for adjustability, then Tokico D-Specs or Koni Sports would be the way to go...

Re: Roll cage and struts

i would price quote, no cage is 100% perfect fit... but everyone that has mm's roll cage likes it, I hope you are not putting a 6t point in a DD car

Re: Roll cage and struts

yea as far as the struts im not going too much for adjustability, i just need some nice ones to replace my old worn out ones. and the roll cage im going 6 point and no my car isnt a DD. My car really doesnt see much of the track either but its at about every show i can get to. The most my car sees is the occasional 8th mile street race at atlanta motor speedways friday night drags. i think im gonna go with the bilsteins. and i have a guy who owns and exhaust and fabrication shop im going to get a rpice on a rollcage from. he does alot of my work for free on labor and i only pay materials so ill see. and i know a cage seems a little much for a non track car but i think it will give it more looks at the shows. one more question guys, my car has 121000 miles on it, i know its high but trust me everything is squeaky clean and done right. I have the usual bolt ons but no power adder, i want one but im afraid ill damage my engine with the high milage and not get the results i paid for. any suggestions on what to do with it.....

Re: Roll cage and struts

If you want a power adder do it. I doubt it'll damage the engine, and if it does blow it up you can find a good one for around 700-800$. If the car is solid do it mustangs will run for a long time if they are taken care of. (same with any car except a foreigner)
