    Exactly the reason why I went with Fortune Auto. I live about 3 hours away and was involved in the development of these and I can say they ride just slightly stiffer than stock, even at my slammed ride height.
    Correct.

    If anyone here is interested, their website is: http://www.fortune-auto.net/

    I don't think they have Mustangs under "Applications" yet but you can see the various features of each "Tier" of Coilover they sell.

    Call them up and tell em Ali with the Blue 5.0 sent you, they developed these on my car. Much better design than BC's IMO. They hand assemble and shock dyno every single coilover they sell, and offer custom spring rates, complete rebuilds, etc all in the USA.

    They are actually planning on becoming a vendor on here soon but they will probably be under the "Muller Suspension" product name then.

    this is also great info to have bc if us coilover guys ever need different spring rates or coilover rebuilds we will know who to go to.

    Those look really nice, but I'm still not convinced that a TRUE real coilover is needed on this car. Putting all that pressure on a shock mount that isn't made for it just doesnt sit right with me

    Have to hurry and get to my inlaws in MI and grab my Roush bumper and side skirts. Then I'll be happy with the exterior.

    I was a little worried about them for this same reason. Did they beef up the upper shock mount any?

    It would probably take a lot to beef up that mount and with a coilover system that cost 1100 buxs I wouldnt say they beefed up anything

    It all depends on what your goals are with the car. I think the KW V3's are the best double adjustable damper coilover kit on the market for the money. You really have to almost double the cost to get something better like Moton, Motion Control, AST, etc. Even set to pretty soft settings, they aren't nearly as comfortable to daily drive as the Koni Sport/Steeda Sport combo I was running. Put some big old fat Hoosiers on all four corners, and you'll grin until your jaws hurt. The Steeda Sport spring rates couldn't handle the grip I generate up front from the Hoosiers.

    Steeda sports with Stern 19 x 8.5s. Like to get it about a 1/4 in lower though.
