Round 2 suspension mods going into the stang, need opinions:
My next round of parts that are going into the stang are so:
*Grannetelli weight jacker control arms (I got them new $155 shipped, I know, they're ****, but cheap ****)
*03 cobra A arms, soon to be packed with Del-A-Lum aluminum/Delrin offset bushings to bring the arms forward some.
*new transmission mount
Some thoughts on other parts were:
*should I replace the bushings in the GMS arms before they go in? They're spherical on one side, poly on the other
*x2 balljoints to help my body roll problems, and I hear they improve steering feel.
*a certain member has some HR Race springs he'd sell me cheap, I'd like to change them from the C's I have now
*I'm unsure what to do about the upper arms. I can get the 1994 cobra HD arms for $40, but I'd like to go Panhard/torque arm by the end of the summer, would I really benefit in the meantime if I don't plan on pulling the rear end assembly?
My next round of parts were to be:
*MM Panhard bar
*MM fulllength subs
*Driveshaft Loop (are they compatable with torque arms?)
I'm really trying to eliminate the slop in my car's ride, and what feels like moderate understeer. My mildly modified sixxer could drive circles around this car as it stands, and its the same suspension parts in both cars. Right now, I have this:
*FMS C springs
*Bilstein 04 struts
*MM CC plates, (-1.2 camber, 0 toe, +5.6 caster)
*tokico rear shocks
*short poly endlinks for front stabar
*poly center drill rack bushings
*18" 265/285/35 rubber
Its all in a 1995 GT, so yeah, any bushing not replaced is probably dead.
