94 GT Sway Bar Options...
This is a totaly different set-up then the current thread on MFE's roll issues,
and looking for a little advice on a balanced anti-roll bar package for my
Application: 94 GT primarily used for "Weekends" and HPDE at Lime Rock Park,
CT (repaved track is smooth as glass). The motor is pretty much stock
with a few bolt-ons. I have had prior track experience with various EARLY
model Mustangs and preferred a bit of a "tail-happy" set-up.
I am essentially putting together a entry-level, "Bullit" suspension that
includes "C" springs,Tokico HP struts/shocks, MM lower control arms, Steeda
offset-bushings (frnt. control arm),X-2 ball joints and bump-steer, camber
plates etc., etc.
Wheel tire combo is a simple 17x9 Cobra R and Nitto NTO5 255-40-17. Brakes
(for now), are stock with Porterfield R4-S pads, ATE fluid, stainless lines and
front brake ducting. This will change once the $$$ is available. LRP is not
hard on brakes...or so I am told, even with this nose heavy, portly, GT.
The current, GT rear sway-bar is unusabe and will need to be replaced. I am
wondering what the result would be on going with the "Bullit" sway bar kit at
28mm front and 21mm rear vs the stock GT, 30mm/ 24mm set-up. Another
alternative would be the stiffer cobra (25-27mm?) rear bar and leave the
stock front alone.
Also, Eibach offers a 35mm/24mm kit.. to me, the Eibach bars would be prone
to understeer more or am I wrong? There seems to be allot of debate on
whether roll with this chassis is desirable or not. My goal is a reasonably
predictable or, 'tossable" set up if you will, at the limits. Any input would be
appreciated before changing things out.
