    Ok folks looking for some suggestions/recommendations of what are some good replacement parts for the GT350 suspension...specifically around bushings, and adjustable links. I added the FP springs to the car in prep for the TT Nationals next weekend, and went and had an alignment.....I could not believe HOW much flex is in the stock bushings....was pretty frustrating trying to get consistent accurate readings for the alignment, especially rear camber Any help would be appreciated...Thanks!

    Lots of flex in all of the rear bushings. Good luck at TT nationals.

    You need to switch out the (front) rear LCA bushing for the Cortex piece. Ford Performance has a Toe link bushing that is solid too. Beware of going to solid vertical links in addition as you may introduce bind.

    Solid or lockouts on the rear subframe and Diff mounts will also help on the rear.

    The OE rear Toe link is good. Full Tilt Boogie Racing is a good option for Camber link adjustability.


    Up front it’s mainly the front tension arm. Cortex have a bushing, but SPL sell an adjustable link that has a solid bushing and is lighter.
