Coming from a G82 M4, I couldn't stand the stock suspension on the GT. It felt like I was rowing a damn boat, I actually backed out of two GT purchases because of the feel. I bought this one because I'm saving a bunch per month. My insurance also dropped 300$/Month (Clean record).

So, I took it to the shop, with a trunk filled with parts and had them "fix it".

Mods:
- RTR Coilover Suspension
- Steeda Front Swaybar
- Steeda Rear Swaybar
- Steeda Strut Brace
- 1" Spacers
- Steeda H-Pipe.
- 5% Tint all around, 55% tint on the windshield.

It's low low now, Might have them raise it about half an inch. It needs an alignment for camber also. But let me tell you, this thing handles like it's on rails now. Is it as good as the G82? Hell no, I don't think anything will be that good. But at least we've docked the damn boat.

You might have gone too far with that ride height my brother in Christ.
Hahaha, Yeah the shop set it. It's a bit low. I had to pull it from the shop to make the window tint appointment, I'll be dropping it back off to fix the alignment and probably raise it a little bit. I asked them to set it to half of stock height, and they went a bit overboard.

Damn that thing looks amazing!
I like the drop but maybe a bit too low in the front.

Couple of questions since this is basically the stance I will be aiming for.
Did you go with the old gen 2023 RTR coilovers?
Loving the fitment, did you go with extended lugs for the 1" spacers?

Looks awesome and I don't think you should raise it at all. Flush!!! Would love if you could answer @RJV15 questions about extended lugs and the old version coils though. I'm wondering the same

@Interstellar - Yep, I went with the old gen RTR Coilovers. I don't have Magnaride, so they worked fine. rtr-tactical-performance-coilovers-15-24-mustang

For the spacers, I went with the Steeda spacers. So they bolt to the hub, then the wheel bolts to them. No need for longer studs or anything. IMO if you're going to do spacers, this is the design to go with. https://www.steeda.com/steeda-musta...c-billet-aluminum-wheel-spacer-pair-2015-2023

@sir5574 I have two RX8s, and I've owned three. They're the same suspension as the NB Miata. I don't fit in a Miata; But the RX8 is close. The mustang isn't anything like the RX8. I live in TN where the roads are super windy to/from my house. I haven't been able to push the Mustang like I'd like, because of the alignment. But I will and I'll report back.

You seem to be well experienced with platforms and what makes a good handling vehicle in general.

Strut tower bracing: I see you got the STEEDA. Do you feel a OEM (performance pack) brace that triangulates with the firewall, or the two point design of the STEEDA style is more effective?

Vert looks great man!

Three points of contact will always be "better". Because it limits flex on more than one axis. For me, I went with the two point simply because I'm not going to be doing Auto-X or tracking this thing. So it was "good enough" - Which I think will be true for most folks.

This will be my daily driver, I'll have other cars for track and such. I wanted it to be stiffer so that it was responsive. I have a certain style of driving, and that typically requires a responsive chassis. The stock setup was too boaty/bouncy. It's setup for comfort, which it's good for. But I don't want comfort, I was feedback.

Why would you go from the G82 to this? Only asking because I am currently doing the same.

Was looking to buy a house next month. That plan has been pushed back.. But when I did the math, between the payment on my mountain and the BMW. My DTI was just a smidge too high to get any good loans. So, the BMW had to go. I put 44K miles on it in 2 years, So I knew I needed a new car and didn't want to go used. So ended up with a mustang.

Between insurance and the payment - I'm saving like 700$/Month.

I’m in the same boat. I have a manual G82 and I just can’t grow to love it. It’s been 9 months since I got it and my feeling is just “meh”.
