That picture is completely wrong. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Shorter the lever arm, stiffer the bar. So inner most mounting point is always the stiffest, and outer most is always the softest.

When you say car wash, are you referring to those automated washes that pull your car through?

If so, The ultralites may be too low. Mine are, but I'm also running lower profile tires.

Just to reinforce this, when I did my suspension and took it in for alignment, the toe was seriously out, .24" out on the driver side and .23" out on the passenger side, so almost half an inch toe...

An extended warranty that is never used is pretty much the exact opposite of money well spent.

The Dunlops are 285/30, not 40, which get a little short for our cars. They're about an inch shorter than the 285/35 tires out there, over two inches shorter than stock. That decrease in diameter...

The ultralites are 195front/175rear, not exactly what I would call essentially OE rate (136front/142rear).

I'm running the Hawk HPS pads myself and they work just fine for AutoX use. They do dust...

And a decent set of shocks/struts can be put on the Mustang for not a lot of money or effort.

Even the 'mostly' stock street classes in SCCA autocross allow shock swaps because they know the vast...

In all likelihood, it will be the same result. The harshness is more a result of the shocks not be adequate to damp the additional springrate of the lowering springs. The end result is you spend...

Do they run wide open throttle right up to redline and bang off the rev limiter for a few seconds? Not really sure what your point is there.

The G35/37 are glorified 350/370 Z's. Nothing like an Altima at all. Not sure where you even got that idea.

That being said, I'm still with everyone else. If you get rid of the Mustang, you're...
