Should I upgrade to Shelby GT500 suspension


Feb 16, 2010
I currently have some suspension mods, all listed in my signature, and was considering upgrading my struts, rear shocks and front and rear springs with some barely used OEM Shelby GT500 parts.

Would my Gt benefit from swaping the struts/shocks and springs to a GT500's setup? I can get the parts cheap, but I want to know if its even worth swaping them?

Thanks guys

No it won't, the GT-500 shocks and struts are tuned for different weight characteristics. The GT-500 weighs more then a GT and is also a lot more nose heavy due to the iron block and blower. You GT will handle like a wet noodle with those shocks and struts in it.
