For less than $400 you can upgrade your rear brakes to the 14" rotors (13.8") by using GT500 rear rotors and caliper mount. The single piston caliper is almost identical on the GT500 and 13/14 Mustang. Remember, just because you have 6 pistons instead of 4 doesn't mean the front brake is going to work that much better than a 4 piston, it's the area of pistons that exert the force....and 6 pistons are quite a lot smaller. Just seems like overkill to me..............but it's your car and money.
In September I'll report back on changing to the 14" rear rotors and using my standard Brembo 14''s in front. I will be changing fluid and pads for the 90 mile road race though.

Ahhh. I'm going to look on AM when I get home to see how to apply this. It will save me a lot of money.

Updated list and a question.

Lund tune
Barton Industries Short Shifter and Two-Post Bracket - MT-82 (11-14 GT, V6)
AMR Charcoal Wheel - 20x10
Mickey Thompson Street Comp Tire - 255/35-20
Shifter Base Gasket - MT-82
GT500 Style Rear Spoiler - Pre-painted
BMR Panhard Bar Relocation Bracket (05-14 All)
BMR Double Adjustable Panhard Bar - Red (05-14 All)
BMR Rear Lower Control Arms - Poly Bushings (05-14 All)
BMR Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets (05-14 All)
BMR Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arm - Poly Bushing (11-14 All)
BMR Rear Upper Control Arm Mount (05-10 All)
Ford Racing Brembo 6-Piston Brake Upgrade Kit - 15 in. Rotor (05-14 GT, Bullitt, Boss, GT500)
Grabber Blue Racing Strips.

Now the question. Should I get springs, shocks, and struts, or just get something like a ford racing suspension kit and drop all the BMR stuff?

The BMR products are some of the best made stuff going. That's what you want.

Your list is pretty sick man, you're going to have one sick pony! Just a few suggestions if cash is not a problem for you:

1) get MGWs new race spec shifter instead. You will be much happier down the road. Also stainless steel clutch lines

2) get a staggered tire setup. 255s for front and 285 for rear (AM can easily do that for you)

3) are you planning on changing your exhaust too? Roush is a favorite for vast majority of members on this forum. However, if you don't like it too loud, get magnaflow cat back with catted x pipe.

4) what kind of lower rate are you looking to get for your car? For the price, SR springs can't be beat. Pair them with Koni orange shocks n struts on all 4 corners. Once you have installed all of your suspension components, drive it for a week and get an alignment done from a pro shop.

5) if cash is still not a problem then kooks headers - 17/8' primaries with 3' collectors. They will really wake up your pony!!

1)I'll look into the shifter because I originally was going to get the ford racing shifter but found out the barton was the same just cheaper.

2)I'll look at my shopping cart and see if i can switch things around. I've wanted a staggered setup for a while. Also AM doesn't have 285 Mickey Thompson Street Comp Tires. They have 275 and 305.

3)I already have classic Flowmaster 40 series exhaust that I managed to pick up off someone for $75. So i'll wait on the exhaust and get the borla attak exhaust later. Also I like my exhaust loud.

4) I used to want a 1.5in drop. Now i'm leaning toward a 1in drop. But 1.5in isn't out of the question. I'll just have to change how I drive a bit.

5)I'm going to wait until after my deployment to hit up big engine upgrades. I'm leaning toward supercharging it when I get back.

Are these the springs, shocks, and struts you're talking about?

Will I have to buy two sets of these or is this all I need for all four corners?

You can find 285 mickey Thompson's cheaper on summit than what AM sells em for ($279?).. I'm hoping AM would price match it for sure.

1.5" drop isn't bad, actually perfect since you're going all out on suspension.

The shocks and struts you listed are adjustable kind (yellows), you dont necessarily need em unless its sole purpose track car. I couldn't find orange ones as a kit (non adjustable).. But here you go http://www.maximummotorsports.com/Ko...ang-P1455.aspx

Would I need to buy two sets of those orange ones you posted? Ok I see now. Shocks go in the front and struts in the back. So i'll need two of each part and not four.

Yeah, but its a complete kit - everything you would need. Oh and idk if you have added camber bolts to your list? They're meant for correcting geometry on your front end.

You've got an impressive list and a lot work ahead of you.
What are you going to use the car for?
Although there are a lot of guys who track their car (I plan to do that along with autocross it) why do you want to got with 20's. The unsprung weight makes it a little harder to setup the suspension for different tracks.........unless you just plan to run on one specific track. I will go back to 19" although the tire selections are not as varied, but going with 9.5" in the front and 11's in the rear should give me what I want with adjustable shocks/struts and adjustable sway bars.
I chose Eibach springs only because I've used them on other cars and my 97 Cobra............on that car I used Steeda, FPF, Eibach and finally went to Maximum Motorsports which gave the Cobra just over 1.1g on the skid pad(on my 14 I'll be shooting for 1.2g) even with my 17" GoodYears on FPF wheels.
Quite a few road race Mustangs are currently using 18" wheels on the newer Mustangs and using 11" or wider rear tires.
With that said the MM springs are a little lower in front, about the same as my Eibach Sportlines. A little lower in front will give you a little more stability above 120/130mph..........as I found my 14 going light at this speed (but I've got stock TrakPak struts/swaybars and upper strut supports) and this needs to be address before September.
So, if you're looking for a nice all around driver I think the springs you've choosen should be ok, I'm not familiar with SR.
If you don't like the springs they are easy enough to change...or if you really want to step up your game, going with coilovers on all four corners would give just about any setting for doing anything from drag racing to road racing and even autocrossing, but the cost isn't that much more than buying struts/shocks and lowering springs.

PS: I see your car is going to be a DD, you might not need shocks, struts, and UCAs after all. I mean they wouldn't hurt, but for a street setup you don't 'really need those' IMO. Save cash and maybe do a gt500 front end conversion if you feel like it. Be much meaner!

Ok I bought the high dollar items first. This week I plan on getting all this here. I changed out the SR springs for the ford racing K springs. Should I add front and rear sway bars to this list since I'm getting all this done at the same time?

Congrats man, I don't think you are going to need sway bars since it is going to be your street car.

I did the camber bolts 8 months ago on my DD no issues never even needed alignment.
