Default Awesome-est suspension

I plan on purchasing the BMRstage 1Handleing pack... but before I do...does anyone know of any other awesome suspension kits/parts. Like...I know you can now buy the C5-R swaybars for a C5 vette...anything like that for us, with the FR500 mustang? I couldn't really locate anything. Unless the one FRPP offers is the one used on their race car

Make sure you get a set of Koni 8211 Series Dampers or a custom set of Moton Dampers. Either one of those willfill your needs.

yea, still expensive...but you def. get what you payed for. I was planning on spending close to $1500...with those where should I go from there?

I don't know too much about road racing suspension...I'm a drag car guy...but I want my DD Mustang to haul *** through the turns. I guess I would be building it for AutoX/Road Racing...

Unfortuantly there's not an acutal course track around me, just a quarter mile, but what the hell. a parking lot and orange cones do the same thing ahahahaha

**serious note
I know front and rear sway bars are a must, and some lowering springs for the dampers as well. I already have LCAs with polyurethane and spherical bearing... what else should I look for? What brands...like I said...I'm totally lost here!

From what I have read on other posts by more experienced road racers, if you are going to be doing road racing, start out with the Konis and some Hawk HPS or HP+ brake pads and high temp brake fluid. Spend your money on HPDEs where you have a professional ride along with you as you race. Your car is probably more capable than you are right now, so you should play catchup before adding more parts. Plus its more fun when you are passing people with a close to stock car.
