While Tokico does make the boss and FRPP dampers I still wouldn't use them. They don't have as good of damping rates and they also have more cross talk than the Koni yellows. Even if money was no issue I would still take the Koni oranges over the Tokico. I am running p springs, I think the 1" drop is perfect. However the amount of drop is personal opinion and can't go worn with k springs, BMR, or Steeda. I would look into replacing lca and uca very shortly after as well.

I've been looking at some koni's just not 100% on the springs yet. I'm going to run a maximum motorsports pan hard bar and probably Metco upper and lowers with relocation brackets

I second Koni for shocks and struts. They handle my insane drop of 1.7" front and 2.4" rear without complaint day in and day out.

i just dropped mine with eibach 1.5" all around from AM. and panhard bar. took it to ford the other day bc of rear end leak. and i had them check all my suspension bc i wanted to know if i needed lcas and relo brackets. and shocks n struts. they said my alignment was dead on. the rear end was perfect. adding lcas and that stuff wasnt needed unless i planned on dragging the car to launch better. and shocks n struts are fine with a 1.5" drop. this is coming from the best tech at the dealership. and his credentials are pretty darn good. he was on pinks all out and won with his mustang drag car. so ill take his word for it that i dont need lcas for my application. but for some reason everyone on this forum says you have to get them and shocks n struts. but every shop i have went to for suspension questions has said the same thing. WHY? are you gonna be racing? if you just want it to look good going down the road then you should keep it how you want it. just saying.

The lcas and Uca really do make a difference. Drive a car with those mods and you notice a difference in how much better you can control the car and how much less wheel spin and wheel hop there is. Easier to launch hard and more stability/better handling on the road. Plus the stock components are stamped steel with soft rubber bushings which have lots of flex and play, simply put, the stock parts are subpar

Yes. The car just sticks after adding them.

Yah I think stock is good for about 30 min or 30 miles driven off the showroom other then that these cars just get better and better when you start to mod them. On my 5th mustang and non stayed stock for too long lol. To bad I have to pay taxes this year or I'd be having ups show up for a few days straight lol

Absolutely, less flex in the control arms means the axle is more stable while driving, and the lca brackets give the correct lca angle for you to launch harder, even in just normal driving, when I'm not racing or launching hard, it still makes a difference in stability and traction, 400+ hp needs all the help it can get to the ground
