What should my next mod be? Currently have boss 302 intake, 90mm throttle body ( I know, I know) JLT CIA , UPR off road x-pipe, Roush Axel backs and MGW short shifter. currently using bama's 93 V2 tune. Is a track pack car so has 3.73's. Was thinking suspension should be next my understanding is the track pack cars have the GT500 rear lower control arms? Was thinking Eibach sport lines for springs would be good next move?

TrakPak cars do not have GT500 LCA's. Mine is a 14 TrakPak and I've helped on two other TrakPak cars...............none have GT500 LCA's..............they do carry a different part number than the standard LCA though. When I switched to LCA's and UCA along with carrier bushing............that made all of the difference in the world.
When you change springs make sure you get an adjustable pan hard bar.

Here is where I got that info from About - BREMBO50.com
Ok, the article is somewhat correct. If you look at the stock GT, GT w/Brembo/Trak Pak, Boss 302 and GT500.....all of the LCA's all carry different part numbers. The only LCA that is built stronger than the rest is the GT500 and was only offered on the GT500. It has two oval holes vs. the others having only one...............the GT500's LCA is a thicker metal where the GT/Brembo w TrakPak and Boss 302 is just a single stamped piece of metal with folded over edges. The durometer rating of the rubber used is also different in the GT500, standard GT, GT w/Brembo TrakPak along with Boss 302. In the rear suspension..........if you look at the carrier bushing on the UCA, the GT, GT w/TrakPak and Boss 302 use the same bushing but the GT500 uses a different one..........the durometer of the bushing is much harder than the others.
So..............the bushings on the Boss302/GT w/Brembo/TrakPak and GT500 could be the same..............the LCA's are not the same on the 13 and 14 cars.
Just so you know, Ford changes parts, part numbers like people change socks, a lot.
You can believe what you read net.......I rely on doing extensive research, talking with friends that work for Ford along with seeing pieces in my own two hands. I believe very little that I see or read on the net as most people don't make the effort to find out the whole story or repeat what other people have said without following up on their own................................hope that sets the record straight.

Thanks that was very help and I see what you are saying now and when I pulled the part number it was for a 2013 GT500 and I was thinking that is not possible my car is a 2011 lol thanks for the clarification.
