    275 is going to be too wide in the rear. Widest I can go is 255. I don't want bigger than 17s

    Would 255s fit the front, 255 all the way around would look awesome, that's still a 10" wide tire

    So narrowed the wheels and tire size down. These in 17x8 with 255/40 front and rear

    Was checking out everything last night and the spring bushings are shot so I will have to replace those too. Dumb rubber bushings

    I had anthracite FR500s on my yellow 94 Mustang GT, it accents the yellow very nicely

    My coils came in but I threw my back out this week so I won't even try to get them in. Need to find some 1" blocks for the rear

    Found some control arms that will help the geometry out. Now I just need to figure out what I want to do with the rear. I need new rear springs but do I go with drop springs and caltracks or drop the money on the bolt in 4 link

    Bolt in 4 link sounds good. How much does that run?

    I would want to get the 5.3 in before that would happen though

    So hotchks 1.5" rear lowering springs and the fox adjustable shocks they make. That will round out the rear. Than possibly sway bars depending on how it handles. We'll and tire and wheels since it needs tires

    Drove it yesterday for a quick rip. Handles so much better. Can't wait to see what good shocks and better springs will do
