because who needs the smog pump, and the a/c isnt necessary, roll down the windows
Yeah try that out here in Central CA where it's well over a 100F all summer long. You'd wish you had a stock Mustang with a full charge of 134a. [sm=trust_me.gif]

maybe he want lose to a stock honda. But wheel lifing a stock motor car is just stupid. Why would you want to?? is it to show off? Make people think u got something? But yea 3k in sup will make his car lift but if ur not going to turn around and spend atleast the same amount on motor then its a waste. But hey whatever floats ur boat. Also, louisiana here 100 summers no ac thats why they invented power windows.

Maybe you should read:


ORIGINAL: ford91mustang

i was curious if i bought shocks & struts, lowering springs, and rear control arms (upper and lower) and removed my A/C, smog and front swaybar would my car pick up in the front at all??? if not, what else would i need to do. by saying lift up i do not mean getting the tires off the ground, i am asking if the body would go up.
While I dont really think it is needed to have that kind of weight transfer on a stock car for looks, you could atleast take in all the info before chiming in, or not post at all unless you have something useful to say.

Yes, its definetly possible. Get some light rims up front w/ what you posted before, relocate the battery to the trunk and it will definetly pull the body up quite a bit. Especially with the sway bar gone.

anybody loseing to a stock honda don't need more power or suspension. they need to learn how to drive, or for the safety of everyone else....take the bus.

I live in Texas, I see 100 degrees all the time during the summer. The only time I have ever used the a/c is when I turned it on to see if it worked.


Lifting the front tires doesn't really make you go faster, it just makes cool pictures. I have stock suspension and the front of the car lifts up. It's nothing crazy but it still does it.

a good suspension setup is all you would need, if thats all you want to do. the wheels will come off the pavement a good 3-6 inches with a stock motor and $3k into the suspension
you dont need 3K worth. my buddy has this stock motor 85 and has less than that in the suspension and he yanks them while going mid 13s..

getting the wheels off the ground actually makes you slower, and trying to make a 13 second car lift the wheels seems ricer to me, trying to make a car look like more than it is
