Default Shelby Suspension

On eBay (yes I know, don't buy parts from eBay blah, blah, blah) I found a sweet deal on a 2007 Shelby GT 500 suspension. Looking for more I found a set of Shelby GT500 coupe springs. Both items are take-offs.

I am pretty sure I will have no fitting problems, BUT... I have to ask just to make sure: will the complete(ish) suspension (2 Front Struts L&R, Front Sway Bar, 2 Rear Shock Absorbers, and Front Shock Tower Brace [sadly no rear anti sway]) AND coupe spring fit in my 2005 V6 Mustang Coupe? Thanks for the help!

Thanks. That is the first I have heard of a new suspension having a negative affect especially considering that is pony package V6s have some GT suspension parts.

Well my car came with the rear sway bar as well. 157DB knows what he's talking about though. The front sway bar is definitely a good idea though. The main problem I think is our cars don't have the weight up front that the GT500 does.

So will it be worth it or not?

This is an excellent gravedig, sorry about that. I've got a 2005 v6 coupe and ran across a great deal on a gt500 suspension takeoff, only 80 miles on it. Same kit as here:

http://www.fordracingpartsdirect.com.../m-18000-g.htm

What I'm reading though is pretty discouraging... I know the v6 doesn't have the weight for the gt500 springs, but will this kit do me any good at all? I just want to confirm before I pass on it and regret it later... Thanks.

EDIT: i just realized i mixed myself up and ended up double posting this on two threads... sorry about that
