Just picked up this Mustang GT and couldn't be more excited. My last Mustang was a 2015 with performance pack and this car handles much better.

It tips the scales at 2800lbs with just about every suspension component Griggs racing offers. Tubular k member, torque arm, watts link, koni coilovers, etc... Motor is a 331 making 380 to the wheels, sounds like an old trans am car.

Sweet ride. I miss my old fox body mustangs (had a few). Such a blast to drive.

My son has a I believe it's an '89 5.0 just sittin' I'd like to do up like that but with those bolt-on flares and wider meat.

Thanks for all the compliments. This is my 5th fox body, I love that they're so cheap to work on.

I actually have the Chicane wide body kit and new 17x11 wheels with 315/35 all around, but I'm not sure I want to cut it up.

Nice! Time capsule. Looks well developed. I raced an 85 and 87 back in that day. We learned that lowering the rear roll center was key, the four link was bound up and a panhard rod or even better a Watts link was key. Did Griggs do anything in the front to address front spindle KPI, the fox front strut setup wasn't ideal for scrub.

It has a tubular front end with koni coilovers and improved steering geometry, but at the end of the day it still utilizes a McPherson strut. Griggs offers a complete redesigned front end for these now. I'll never find the limit of this car, so it would be wasted money for me.

Yea, I would leave that one alone, it's clean the way it sits.
