Drivetrain upgrades

I have an 07 and am looking to upgrade my drivetrain, read that a new LSD would help a lot, possibly with some upgraded control arms. Any other things I can do to add some HP?

Well upgrading your drivetrain won't actually increase power, but it will help your ability to put that power to the ground. If you really want a good drivetrain this is what you need:

31 Spline Axles
31 Spline Differential w/ your choice of gears
Aluminum Driveshaft (31 Spline)
Rear Lower control arms will really help your launch.

I would do the differential, gears, and axles first because you really are only spinning 1 wheel on launch, might as well get that other spinning before you get the control arms.

That is if you lower your car. With what I listed you won't need CC plates.

If you're already looking at lower control arms, I suggest picking up a set of adjustable LCA's. Then if you lower the car's ride height in the future, you'll be able to easily adjust the LCA's to the proper angle.

You can also use a LCA relocation bracket in the future with non-adjustable LCA's, to retain the suspension geometry, too. The reason I prefer the adj LCA's, is because I use them with the LCA's relocation brackets. Both together allow for the most accurate alignment of the rear axle.

Hope this helps you out!

Im sure I will lower in the future so yes this is helpful, but for now I live in Chicago and there are too many pot holes and ****ty roads to lower, even though Id like to. If I move to a state with better roads I will for sure lower!

Thanks you guys, great advice.

I know what you mean. The roads in my area could use some serious love... I have to constantly scan the road for obstacles when driving any of my Mustangs. It almost takes the fun out of cruising.

Glad I could help! Let me know if you have more questions.

Ya man, its so tempting to just do it anyway, but really when winter comes it's pointless and will most likely cost me more money. Thanks Shane!
