    I ordered h&r supersports and maximium motor sport caster and camber plates but I still need shocks and struts. Which do you think would be the best some say to use ones for a 93 mustang is this true. I also want to have the most confortable ride possible.

    If money is no option, either some Bilsteins (talk to MM first) or a set of Konis.

    you use the shocks/struts for your year, you use the springs from the earlier stangs to get a softer lower stance for drag racing.

    KYB is a decent cheaper stang, they even have a adjustable version i think.

    I run KYB AGX's on my 96, 4 levels of adjustments up front and 8 out back; I like 'em, just wish I would have spent some more money on a different set.

    I am with Gary on this get Bilstein's they are the best for any lowered car.
    I had Bilstein's and I loved the ride and probably the best shock and strut for the street.

    check out our sponsors for discounts btw.

    Blistines are great, Tokico and Koni are also good, if your on a tight budget KYB are prob your best choice though,
