Default 2015 GT Prem Suspension upgrade options

been looking through the forums on options for suspension, and I havent found much more other than "Buy this brand because I won it and its the best" or "This is the most expensive racing suspension so you should get it". Im not looking for any of that. Here are my actual uses and plans for my 2015 50th anniversary package GT Premium.

Daily driver. That's pretty much it. I bought the car used, and it came with a AIRRAID CAI, and a Borla Stinger Type S 2.5" Catback exhaust. I dont know if it had the ECU reflashed or not. It did not come with the factory strut tower brace either so its not a track pack or whatever.

I owned a 2014 GT Prem with the brembo breaks and wheels and I lowered it with eibach springs only. at that time I should have went with shocks and struts too, but i figured id add them later. later tuned into trading the car for a newer one. So now, my concerns for handling are mostly Arizona freeway driving, and a little bit of curvy roads. no track, no autocross. I just want a more comfortable feel and better performance for if i ever need to have a highway battle with an R32 GTR Skyline (Again). So, Im thinking a street coil over kit. maybe KONI or Ford Performance. I dont know. Maybe a bushings kit? like a full energy suspension bushings kit?

Who here has done suspension mods and bushing kits? Whats a good quality street use daily coilover kit thats going to make a noticeable impact?

For what you describe I'm not seeing any reason to go much beyond what Ford has already done for the GT350/350R and Perf Package 2. If your "highway battles" involve cornering, I'd go either GT350R springs (240 lb/in front, 890 lb/in rear) or comparably stiff aftermarket offerings (BMR SP083, 250/980) with either Koni yellows or Steeda Pro-Action adjustable springs/shocks and aftermarket adjustable sta-bars for fine-tuning the resulting handling balance. PP2 wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport or Pilot Sport 4S tires.

You don't need coilovers to pull well over 1g in the corners on true street tires, even if you're only driving an S197 like mine.



If your "highway battles" are strictly straight line in nature, I don't think coilovers are what you'd want anyway.
