What made you choose the moog balljoints over the superior steeda?
And springs are probably the cause of bottoming out, SR's are a decent drop in ride height.

Congrats on the stang, sounds like u covered suspension, now time for exhaust, TB/plenum, tune and gears !

A little late perhaps to reply, but last time I checked Moog offered a lifetime warranty. I've rather have something I can exchange off the shelf rather than order, wait, and return defective parts.

Nice car man!

Looks like you did very well on your first Mustang. Congrats!

Your tires look great and fill the wheel wells nicely. Can you tell us again the size tires you have? I've seen other 20" rear tires that looked wrong. Yours is perfect. Is there any tire rubbing? You'll see posts on the forum about tire sizes occasionally, too.

Thanks.

And yes the camber bolts can and do work, some dont like them and say they break or snap but those are usually guys who autocross their cars and put max strain on their suspensions. For normal DD, occasional spirited sprints around the twisties or stop light to stop light they will be fine and people have been using them for years. Some people have to use them along with CC plates for adj cause they are that loooooow. But having the CC plates will be good for future use maybe and they look real nice under the hood.

What are the camber bolts?

Camber bolts. They replace a strut bolt and allow for more adjustment. Its a poor mans way of getting your alignment back into spec after lowering. They work, just wouldnt use them on a tracked car or maybe a really hard driven DD, I have heard of them failing but Ive never known anyone who had them fail. I have a set ready for when I take my car in for an alignment (whenever that is)

Update...
I ordered Maximum Motorports steering shaft to replace the factory a joint steering shaft.

I have the offset energy suspension bushings for the rack n pinion to raise it to help my tie rods to sit at level with the control arms to help with bump steer. $10 roughly, cheaper than a bump steer kit. P.s I'm not tracking my car. Yet!

Last week I welded in my frame supports from Do Silva racing. Did made a huge difference in ride quality. Especially over uneven pavement.

I did the gas medal mod. I cut a piece of urethane fuel about an inch and some electrical tape and man I can heel and toe now. Also throttle response seems better and smoother shifts.

Here are few pics.

Hey thanks for the compliment. Here are two pictures of the tire size and another of a slice to the side wall due to how low the car was and before I installed the Eibach pro kit.

So, no rubbing/cutting after installing Eibach?

Nope. It's a comfortable ride almost like factory but it handles way better.

Great info.

I see the rear tires are 285/30/20. What are the fronts?
