MM Install and need advice

Car is going to Performance Autosport at the end of the month.

Parts I have:

MM K Member
MM Torque Arm
MM Panhard Bar


Parts the shop will supply:

Griggs Thru the Floor Kit
MM Coilover Kit
MM Forward offset forward control arms
MM Road Race rear control arms


The car wears R58 wheels and eventually i want 275 tires all around. 94/95 spindles, 00R calipers on front and stock length 5 lug axles in the rear. Also i've had Bilstein sport shocks for the past 4-5 years and am hoping to reuse these... but i'd buy new shocks if the "MM" valving is worth it.

Any suggestions on spring rates? How does the rest of the setup look?

Im really looking on getting the car dialed in after almost 10 years of dragging my feet.

Edit: if funds hold up... im thinking about having them do a roll bar for me too... something along the lines of the MM roll bar with diagonal bracing and the low slung door bars... Any suggestions would be appreciated in this area as well.

I'm running MM Bilstein Sports with 400# springs up front, 300# in the rear. The car has 275/40/17 Nitto 555 (the street tire) all around. I find it firm, and a little harsh on bad roads. But it's tolerable and I enjoy it. These were spring rates that MM suggested, so I went with their recommendation.

If PA can do a custom rollbar, it'll probably fit better than a pre-fabbed one. I'm not knocking the MM piece, I'm sure it's stellar. I had an Auto Power 4pt in my car. I took it out when my DD was rear ended and totalled....can't have the rollbar in the 'Stang w/ a child seat in the back. The Auto Power bar was great (although I technically never needed to use it =D ) I went w/ the Auto Power bar because at the time I got a hook-up and it was half the price of the MM piece.

Enjoy your new parts. It'll feel like the car picked up 50-100hp. lol

Similar setup as Matt's, MM sports, 400 front/300 rear, Toyo RA1s in 275/40/17 with R58 wheels. Switched from a set of unknown BBK springs and Tokiko shocks on the otherwise stock suspension, big improvement in ride quality and obviously with all the MM parts a huge improvement in handling.

I'd recommend selling off the 94/95 spindles and getting the '96 and up ones per MM's recommendation, you'll also need the bumpsteer kit and probably the aluminum rack bushing kit. I also have a roll bar with integrated through-the-floor subrames as well as MM's full length subframes (just to mount the TA), definately get the low slung door bars if you plan to drive on the street at all, it's a PITA to get in and out with the taller door bars and you won't want to drive on the street anymore. I almost wish the roll bar wasn't in there when I bought the car, it would have been nice to work with a good shop to install a custom one that worked better for me.
