Finally!

Good: Ordered my mods for this year (that's what I told the wife anyway). Front Baer brake kit, upgraded rotors, pads and hydraulic hoses for the rear. New wheels & tires. Suspension system.

Not so good: parts will start getting here Tuesday and some will take up to five weeks.

I"ll post pix as they get installed.

Gotta look at the bright side of things.... If they come in slowly, it will keep you busy for awhile if its gotta last you a year lol. What rims did you go with? What suspension parts?

Very nice man, sounds like a sweet set up. Im installing the koni Str.ts, steeda ultralites, Maximum Motorsports camber plates, and j&m panhard bar myself on sunday. Cant wait to see the results. After doing a ton of research i would highly suggest looking into the Maximum Motorsports camber plates as opposed to using the gt500 strut mounts and adjustment bolts. They are backwards compatible and will work with not only the 05-10 koni str.ts, but any of the 11+ struts as well. Also i would recommend an adjustable UCA to correct your pinion angle, and possibly a adjustable panhard to center the rear, as it tends to shift after lowering. The UCA personally will be my next purchase as I don't want to cause premature wear.

Opps ignore what i just said, didnt even see that you had listed a UCA in your mod list already! Sorry man, been a long day haha

Yeah... I went with a watts linkage instead of an adjustable Panhard bar a/c everything I've read says it's more stable. Steeda's and Whiteline's watts links are beyond my pay grade. I noticed Shelby carries the Fays2 linkage.

This will probably create some controversy here, but I made my decision and I'll live with it.

he is doing a watts link instead of the panhard bar. Going to be better to a degree but also a lot more costly and a slightly more involved install.

Whiteline Complete Watts Link Rear Mustang Suspension (05-14 Coupe) KDT916 - Free Shipping!

just for a reference.

It will be. A lot of my choices were influenced by what I've learned from reading threads here. I believe the Mustang community is great even if sometimes we get passionate about our point of view.

I put the whiteline watts link on the boss, its night and day. Much more planted, I didn't go with the fays2 due to the design, it works but I don't like it. Oh and as far as price on the WL watts link, you weren't looking in the right places. I know a guy who has them in stock, just saying...

If I new a guy I would've also. All the searches I did couldn't find anything lower than 880. I also shied away from Whiteline because of the possibility of increasing operating temp in the differential. The Steeda is basically the same design as the Fays2. They also say it won't work with Eibach's sway bars. The one they recommend is their "heavy duty" adj sway bar. For that money, I don't want a tubular sway bar.
