    Yep...Definitely a fun car and setup just the way I like it.

    My Bilstein - HD Struts & Shocks have a lot of miles on them and I have been wanting to change them to adjustable. My son put Tokico D-Specs on his 2009 GT and is rides a lot nicer then mine and when he cranks them down it rides about the same. I have them in a box ready to go on as soon as I have time.

    i had been thinking about the d specs in the rear as well but they adjust too much. i like the illuminas 5 settings better but dk which is actually the best of the two.

    @davidseifert
    My other choice was Koni adjustables. I love the way my sons car rides and after talking with some friends the Konis would be better for the track but the Tokicos are better for the street so since this car gets way more street time than track time I decided on the Tokicos.



    @v6procharged
    I don't drag race this Mustang. It is setup for open track and autocross and I only have an 7.5 differential. Even though it has a Detroit Truetrac with sticky drag redials the pinion would be toast. I like to drag race though and have a 1972 Nova setup for that.

    That said JimC over on the Collective put down a 12.6 with a MP90 X-Charger Xtreem on Dougs canned tune and that was with a convertible. I am making a lot more power so realistically it would probably be capable of high 11s with the right setup and an 8.8 differential. IMHO

    did get us backwards lol.. does he ever try adjusting them to see how stiff/soft they can get? just curious. and you should hit up the strip once just to see what itll do and let us know :) the DTT will handle it easy.

    The DTT would not break but the pinion would. Since I'm not ready to put in an 8.8 yet no drag racing for now.

    Yes, we have played a lot with settings on my sons GT both at the track and on the street and is the main reason I'm going with the Tokicos.

    I added an aluminum driveshaft from shaftmaster's. the 3.5" and I got a set of Cooper RS3-S tires. I deleted my muffler and added a pypes M80. I painted my factory wheels black too. And finally, my wife got me tail light trim pieces and the tint from americanmuscle.
