I know there are a tons of posts on which suspension to get etc, but I in trying to filter through all the posts, I seem to get more confused on what to do. So with that said, I am hoping I can ask for your opinions/suggestions.
I have an 88 GT mustang hatchback that is for all intensive purposes stock. Things I can tell have aged and the suspension just isn't what it was. With that said, I am looking to upgrade things for a more fun ride. This car never sees the track, and is a street ride only. I don't have a maximum motorsports budget, but don't want to buy the off brand ebay stuff either. Nor do I want to invest in something that looks good and then will wear out in no time. (Seems to be some of the reviews for SVE equipment, though I have no experience).
With that all said, I wondered if folks could make recommendations on what to do, specifically budget friendly, quality brands.
I think I want to start with rear control arms based on what I hear, but not sure what to do, nor what to do about those old springs of mine.
Any help is always appreciated and I certainly thank you for the time to read this post.
For the front lower control arm bushings look at the Ford Racing loaded lower control arms. They come with upgraded bushings and ball joints and when you get down to it not much more expensive than rebuilding your old ones and much easier.
For the rear, aftermarket lowers are good but stick with a stock rubber bushing uppers.
You can also break up the upgrades into stages. I've added MM Bilsteins and caster/camber plates to my '88 GT, also did the 5-lug disc brake conversion. Once I paint and roll the fenders then I'll change the springs and do the rear lowers/uppers. Mine is my daily driver so nothing too radical.
