When I bought mine, the PO had bought HR lowering springs and cut almost 2 coils out of each. The car was bottomed out on the suspension as far as it would giving negative camber beyond imagination, and the balljoints and tierod ends and rear control arms took a hell of a beating. Not to mention both front fender skirts were basically all gone from the tire rubbing. I drove it a week like that and could not stand it. It bounced like a ball, and my spine could not take it any longer. It was like riding in a ricer on steroids. I had to rebuild the frontend with all new parts, bushings, and new springs, skirts, and alignment with c/c plates and took the 20's off the car as it looked terrible. Now it rides like a mustang should.

Nice! Much better.

looks so much better but yeah iv re done my whole front end too lol. the ball joints are a pain in the *** and I'm on my fourth set of cc plates because some how race land convinced me the coil contact was because i was using maximum motorsports cc plates. so i stupidly bought theirs and sold mine to some lucky guy for half of what i paid for them. come to find out theirs a stupid tab that all coils rub on the drivers side strut mount that maximum motorsports makes an 8 dollar tool for so iv now fixed that.
