Suspension Laundry List

Well my mind has started spinning again with a laundry list of parts again. Now that I have a lot of power available to me I decided that the time is right to start polishing up the suspension. Here is a list of suspension mods that I am thinking about purchasing and I am open to all opinions on the products.

Steeda's Watt's Linkage for 2005 and Up Ford Mustang 555-2525

Steeda Competition Rear Upper 3rd Link for 2005 and Up Ford Mustang 555-4106 555-4107 555-4108 555-4109

Mustang Billet Front Swaybar Mounts for 2005 and Up Ford Mustang 555-8113

2011 2012 Adjustable Swaybar Kit 555-1072

2005 - 2012 Mustang GT | A-Arms | AA025 - A-arms, Lower, Non-adjustable, Poly/Delrin, 19mm Tall Ball Joint (2010-2011) | BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis

have at it

What made you choose the team z watts link? I heard that the bmr k member causes a little more engine and road noise since it is built with nylon bushings, is this true that you know of?

Terry Reeves runs the team z in his low 9 5.0. Another buddy runs it in his 10 sec n/a 5.0. Both talked highly of it to me. Few others I know run it as well. Its all solid bushings.

Not completely sure on bmr one.

Yup, had it put on while in the body shop. Stock engine cradle was trashed so I got the shop to install a bmr k member instead of a factory replacement. I'll be posting a write up soon, waiting to get it on a rack since I know that I will be bombarded with "this thread is worthless without pics."

Short preview, it's totally awesome.

I haven't gotten to drive it much. My biggest impression was how much more solid the front end is with no strut tower brace and stock swaybars. You can also feel everything the engine is doing through the controls. I about had an orgasm when I pushed in the clutch and turned the key. I could actually feel the engine turning over.

I honestly am not sure how I would feel about feeling that. The extra vibrations and noise might give me that older car feeling if you get what I mean. Looking forward to the short write up.

It's definitely got that older car feeling. Back to the days before everything was soft and isolated, definitely not for the faint of heart. From the passenger seat you can't tell though, it's all in the controls and not general NVH
