Best street/road racing suspension

I was wondering about opinions regarding the best suspension mods keeping in mind road racing with occasional street use? Cost really isn't a problem (within reason). Thinking about coil overs with adjustable camber plates and panard bar. What about upper and lower control arms?

Re: Best street/road racing suspension

Don't think it twice. I have them for more than a year. Improved handling & Great looks. KONI STRT & Steeda Sports springs, you can use the GT500 front strut mounts. I got them from Sam Strano. If you want adjustable shocks go for the KONI Sport's.

That's great info. I noticed that your setup isn't coil over. I'm still looking into the benefits of coil over but Sam Strano seems to like your setup. Did you upgrade your anti-roll bars?

Thumbs up Re: Best street/road racing suspension

At this point. I have not needed the bars yet. But in your case I think you should chose the Sport (adjustable) Konis, instead of the STRT (fixed setting shocks). That will be better for adjusting your Mustang handling. Probably you might like to include the adjustable panhard and adjustable front shocks mounts, that also will help on your track handling.
