Hello All

Hello all,
I am new to the Mustang world. I am in the process of picking out what springs to get for my GT. I am going to Road Race it a bit next year. I was thinking about the Eiback Sportlines with a camber kit. This will be my first suspension purchase. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

I am sorry. I ment track days. I would like to attend some track days at Road Atlanta next year. As far as shocks I want to buy the springs then save up for the shocks.

Thank you

ANY springs that will actually help your cars handling (not just "lowering springs") will be seriously underdamped by the stock struts/shocks. Your car will wallow and bounce about in any sort of transient manuver (like say...cornering). If you can only afford one upgrade right now, I'd recommend camber/caster plates and a brake refresh (definately a fluid flush w/ good fluid, rotors/pads if necessary). A "camber kit" I will assume means camber bolts or "crash bolts" as they are called. While these will give you extra camber, they will not give you the other benefits of a quality set of CC plates: easy adjustment, caster gain, and positive upper strut location.

For Road Atlanta, you really should be lookin to upgrade brake pads before any other mod. That track will eat them up.
