Question How to eliminate body roll?, Better bolstered seats?

Hi Guys,

How can you eliminate the body roll in the 2011 GT? Which seats are better to keep you in place while cornering? If you change the oem seats, will you lose the airbags and warning lights will appear in your dash?

How fast are you cornering? Instead of swapping seats consider performance shocks. Roush makes a beastly set. Used mainly for competition but they could satisfy your needs. Ask for a test drive of a roush car at your local dealer.

Start jogging, the body rolls will slowly disappear.

My friend open tracks his Shelby and still uses the stock seats, but he uses a device like this Center of Gravity Lock Lap Belt at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

These cars are not in drastic need of subframe connectors as past mustangs have been, the Roush setup is a great bang for your buck, but for a daily driver it can a little harsh!

A little harsh? Haha for a car that car pull 1.0g on the skidpad it rises like a cadilac. harsh is relative to what you want. I personally like a rougher ride... Bit I call it sportier!
The shocks will help but if you want rid of the roll, you gotta change the springs and roll bars. It's the whole setup that counts, I would go for just lowering springs if I only was able to get one part of the suspension. My Roush has the factory GT seats and it holds me in place pretty decent. When I was road racing my 82GT I used standard GT seats.

even though subframes are not needed nearly as much as on the older cars its where most of the flex comes from body wise, but you are right they really dont help like they did say on my car.
