Roush doesn't touch the suspension until you get to Stage II. Saleen does it on their base model. Go to www.saleen.com and look at the specs for the S281 & S281SC (same suspension) and you will see the entire laundry list of what is done - including the complete suspension (racecraft shocks, sway bars, lowering kit, etc.....)

Cant amagine 500 + horsepower must be a rush!I was thinking of upgradeing my stock suspension on my 06 mustang will it fit on the v-6 car? has the gt suspension and 17 bullet wheels.It looks like a great deal for 800.00 bucks.

It's very nice! From what I have read the Roush did do a little better in the road course and pulled over 1G on the skidpad. But unless you are a true road racer you wont notice it. Both lower your car and will improve handling noticably.

I was thinking maybe steeda?or svt performance/How do they measure up towards saleen and roush on the track as suspension is concerned: roadholding, balance,control etc but still street driven but love pushing through some corners.

I begg to differ, i test drove the stage 2 and I feel that the saleen handled better. IMO. But you probaly cant go wrong with either. Of course I may be a little biased as well as you are 04machdd.

Will either of the suspension kits from roush or saleen fit on the 2006 v-6 pony package mustang.It has the 17 bullet wheels,would 275 40 17 fit on these factory wheels ?I think they are 8.5 wide.If not what tires size would work best with one of these suspension setups,i would like to take the car maybe on weekends to a scca events.

I dont see why it wont fit with either setup from a "fittment" perspective, however you will run into issues with the speedo. Stock GT rims are about 27.5" tall, and your setup will be 25.66" tall. Width doesnt become and issue until you get wider than 285, with 315 being very iffy. As for the suspension fitting, I am sure it's the same as the GT but ask before ordering.

Roush doesn't use Steeda suspension parts... they are competitors it would be like Saleen using Roush suspension parts

i dont think any of the Roush suspension parts fit the V6... looking on their web store most of them (if not all) say they fit the GT mustang only

That is not correct.

I would recommend taking a ride in ROUSH and SALEEN equipped car to make your own decision.
