You could start with the FAQ's. Then you could tell us more about the car, its condition, its modifications, your driving experience, your budget, your ability to either handle installs yourself or pay to have it done, etc.

car is SC'd to 8-9psi with ported heads with a ton of power. I'm not racing this thing just wanna be able to feel the car handle.
Car has sub frame connectors, adj struts / shock and HPM upper / lower control arms. I didn't go to FAQ as thought it was rules posting. thnx

Springs, then a good alignment.

All bleeding stops eventually.

Thumbs up Getting Handled

From my reading, phone calls and weeding thru the BS hype (and we will shortly see from my install choices)...The rear is the biggest factor in the way these pigs handle. You'll see a lot of coil overs and control arm crud flying around on the internet but according to griggs, KB and MM if you solve the rear weight transfer, binding and moment issues you are 80% there. Some good (i do mean good) camber caster plates and a Tower brace that is well thought out, gets you another 10% and the rest is little bits here and there to improve feel or feedback etc...We'll see soon how well i was able to interpret the mass of info i gleaned from here, stangnet, manufacturers and the FFR forums.
