I heard about DSE doing early mustang suspension testing and about the American Street Car Challenge Series. I'm excited to know that this will become an annual event/series and look forward to what they do in the near future for mustang suspension components.

So DSE was kind enough to answer a few of my questions. they said the announcement will indeed be later this month on the 22 and the actual release will be around June. In the mean time they sent a few videos to drool over. as a good samaritan its only fair i share these with you

Any aftermarket suspension over the original 40 year old Mustang suspension rocks. Someone convinced me to put coil overs in mine a few years back. My first thought was that I could be using that money for a bigger faster motor. He took me for a ride in his 68 and I was sold on them. I am so glad that I did the suspension upgrade. It makes driving an absolute pleasure. It's a nice feeling when I can pull away from a BMW at a light and then be able to keep that distance through the corners.

Which aftermarket?

I've been toying with the idea of getting a DSE, Griggs and even Gateway performance because i would really love to get the Coyote engine in my car but the first 2 are way too expensive (but oh so damn nice) and the last one doesn't attract me too much. The idea of McPherson's doesn't instill too much confidence and getting any IRS is absolutely out of the question.

so I'm leaning for TCP coil over kit and just upgrading my 289 to an EFI 302 maybe 347.

I went with a set up from Rod and Custom Motorsports. My car was in an accident before I bought it and when I was tearing it someone pointed out to me some lead welding barely holding the front end together thereby making it easier for me to make the choice.

I put a anthony jones front end on my car. It has coil overs sn95? Spindles and power rack and pinion steering. I paid about half the price the other ones go for. Does anybody know what the dimension of the coyote 5.0 are. I was thinking of putting one in my project but don't know if it would fit with just notched shock towers

I was looking at the TCP setup for my mustang but after pricing the package and riding in a Griggs setup that my mechanic has I decided to go Griggs. Mainly because I found out you can use SN95 spindles off a wrecked mustang and a stock power steering rack and pinion and save some money. Doing that it comes out to the same price as the TCP stuff.

I will get to ride in a 67 Shelby convertible clone in a few months running a supercharged 03-04 cobra motor with the Griggs setup. Really excited to see how that feels.

I will definitely share my opinion and feelings on the car. The owner is going to take it to Barber Motorsports Park where they held the 45th. I have ridden in a SVO mustang with the griggs suspension and my mechanic is doing an 2005 Mustang with a griggs suspension that when tuned will be producing 1000 hp. and around 700+ torque.

Owner of the shop is thinking about doing a pro-touring bullitt mustang with a Griggs suspension.

And with the sn95 spindles your brake and wheel options is a mile long.
