Suspension upgrade

Can anyone tell me what they recommend for a handling package that's stiff enough for the street? I'm looking to replace the suspension on my 01 roush

Only companies I'm aware of that sell a whole kit is eibach and maximum Motorsports. Being that ur suspension may or may not be better than what those companies may offer since u have a roush. Maybe u should look into a coil over kit

I've been looking into coil overs but I'm not sure which one offers the best performance. Right now I have bilstein shocks/struts, roush springs, front/rear sway bars and roush lower control arms

+1^ if you don't want to deal with coil-overs then Eibachs kit is pretty good. I personally prefer H&R stuff though.

You could send your Bilstein's out to get them grooved and pick up MM's coil-over kit. Just need to call them to find what spring rate would work best for you.

Everything on my car is stock, except the rear axle and headers/mid pipe so I was thinking of replacing them. I was thinking of going with the bilstein bss9 or 10 kit

Look into Griggs Racing. Top of the line suspension systems as used in American Iron Racing. Maximum Motorsports provides cheaper competitive handling suspension systems if Griggs prices are too high for your budget.

Yes +1. If your looking into getting handling then I would steer you towards the road track kit from Maximum Motorsports get u started. You can always add suspension components down the road.

I just found a full set of roush rims for my car. The guy has them on his 2000 gt and wants to get rid of them because he has different wheels for his car. He wants $2500 for all 4, is that a good price ?

No I couldn't get a pic of them. I happened to be on my lunch break and could only get his number. They are I believe the 99-04 roush rims, grey with the colored roush emblem like the emblem on my rear bumper, not the engraved.
