I installed the Ford FR3a kit on my car. I like it.

A friend bought the BC coil over kit and brought over for me to install. Very easy to install. The ride quality is fantastic on the BC's. His car is a dd also. No noise and nothing noticeable as a problem.

im in the same boat as you. im leaning BC because you end up saving money since they also come with the CC plates. all you would need would be an adj rear panhard. there's other things you'll need such as upper control arm but seems like you can get away without it for a while

I believe they offer a couple different spring rates, I don't remember them right now. some places online gives you the choice before ordering

Really thats good to hear, on the discussion on where to buy these bc coilovers some vendors on ebay, amazon ect. Skip out on sending the cc plates, so make sure they are authorized to sell bc br. Also I heard that you should make sure its for your year stang. They will send you the wrong ones, where do you plan on ordering from?

my friend is ordering them for me since he owns a shop and has an account, but not sure where exactly he's ordering them from. but when the time comes ill make sure he talks to them about the spring rates, cc plates etc.
best part is the price he can get them to me for, $900 shipped

Same price I was hearing here in orlando. Also curious on what would be a good spring rate. I went with the white line stuff. Hopefully it was worth the money.

The factory brembo spring/shock combo is pretty killer. I love the bias, and except for a bit of dive, it handles great. Not too bumpy, but the dampening is still good. I'd love to go coilover, but the car handles so incredible now, I just don't think it's going to be worth it. I bet you could find the brembo take off stuff for like $300 shipped. Try that before you do anything else. It's basically the boss combo minus about 5% stiffness.

Skip the Megan coilovers and if you can get the Koni's. I know a company that has some great deals going on with Koni's and BC racing.

Ooh, could you send me a link or contact info on this if it's still valid? I was planning on placing the order for my suspension components later this week, and saving money is awesome. I'd really appreciate it!

Meowmix hit up Jayman33 if you do want that deal. I ordered mine last week. Best customer service I've had yet. And the deals are real. Talk to him and you will be in good hands

You gotta know your environment. If you DD the car in the muck, slush and road salt/sand then maybe coilovers aren't for you, as they can get wiped out by that crap pretty quick and are hard to replace as singles. An OEM style shock has its shaft and thus, its sealing surface, much better protected.

So very happy I did. Got BC Coilovers and LCA + relo brackets for less than I was going to spend on Yellows + springs. Thanks so much Jayman!

Will take lots of process pictures when I do the install. Can't wait :3
