Welcome!
When I bought my car with 130k miles on it, the entire front suspension was worn out. That's where I would start. It makes the car so much more pleasant to drive with all new components.

Sounds like a good start it is a little loose in the front and in the rear

Front suspension is a very good start. Welcome and good luck on the project. You will get a ton of info on this forum. Everyone is very helpful.

And with the front suspension on these cars are so simple. If you have a jack and jack stands and know how to take off the tire you'll be able to do any thing on the suspension.

I have heard that rock auto is good online. Also American muscle is great too their all mustang parts for all years. They have free shipping. Their are a couple American muscle reps on the forum that can give you a discount code. I believe you need to have a certain number of posts, I'm sure someone will chime in with the detailed info.

It all depends for shocks and struts if you are lowering or just keeping it stock. KYB shocks and struts are a good above OEM for stock applications. Koni, Billstein, and Tokico are great shocks if lowering or if you want something more heavy duty. I have Koni STR.T shocks and Tokico HP struts but I'm lowered on H&R super sport springs.

You can look up AMdanbailer. He is a Rep from AM on here. I'm sure he would fill you in on what is needed for their discount.

Looks like it needs a good paint job for a start. And and mirror/ door handle. How much you grab it for? And how many miles on the engine? I'd assume they didn't take care of the motor, sorta like their exterior.


Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!
