Suspension Handling 2016 GT?

If cost was no concern what would be the best option to improve suspension and handling on my 2016 mustang GT non-premium?

Check out the suspension packages at Maximum Motorsports. The Road and Track package is excellent, and all of their parts have been sorted out to work well together.
Don't fool yourself as to the purchase price though -- it's probably near double that to get everything installed and aligned properly.
However, when you are done, your Mustang will handle with almost any car in the world.
Hmmm....in checking their website, they don't list this package to fit the most recent Mustang. Perhaps if you give them a call, one of their experts can steer you (pun intended) in the right direction.

Lowering springs, adjustable shocks/struts, sway bars to start.

I have all Steeda parts on my car and am very impressed.

I put the Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs with caster camber plates you should keep your stock struts unless you gonna track it mine is a premium so maybe some stiffer sway bars and your car will handle like a dream
Good luck and pony on

Yeah I've got some money to burn so I'm burning it haha. I liked the ability to easily switch between loud/less loud. I'm new to this. My first car was a Mustang, it was a '79, I wrecked but I loved it. Anyway that was 20 years ago, but finally got another Mustang. I didn't plan on modding it when I got it but then I thought why the hell not?

Wow wish I could swing one of those babies but I've pretty much tapped out the money for a while over 8k in mods I'm 100% va disabled so it takes me a while to save up that much that supercharger will make it scream better get the steeda wheel hop kit cause mine does some wheel hop when it hooks up good they are around 250 I was gonna get them but got the lowering springs first
Good luck and let us know what's happening with ur ride
Later

I'd get the Ford Track Suspension pack... yes even if you're not "tracking" the car. It will stiffen the handling up, drop 1" all 4 corners. Then I'd also get a few Steeda IRS bushings to help reduce the wheel hop and tighten the rear end power delivery up.

Now if you were looking to improve performance also.
I'd get some lightweight wheels, 1-piece aluminum driveshaft and a tune.

ID:	205131Love the active exhaust. It's perfect for someone that leaves for work before most people are up. And the ride is seriously improved. Like having a new car.

Post pics and a list of what you had done.

Looks like there's a GT350 parked in front of you.

Subframe braces, bushings will cause a bit of NVH depending on which ones you do.

I have pretty much everything from Steeda installed and am more than happy with it all.

If cost were no concern, I would just take my car to Maximum Motorsports and let them build it. My advice is to call them and let them suggest what to do. They are awesome, and known as the best when it comes to handling.

You can't go wrong with Steeda or BMR!

Actually if cost were no object, the first thing I would do is head up to the ford performance racing school in Utah and take their 2 day school. You will learn just how capable your car really is before even having to mess with anything.

2nd on the driving school, I got one of my mechanic's shop to install the bushings and BMR cradle lock-out, No alignment needed. Car handles much better.
