    I reached the tipping point last weekend at MPH. The brake dive and body roll on quick transitions was getting to me now that I'm harnessed into the race seat and not bracing myself before every turn. Moving closer to an "S". At some point I'll have to price window nets.

    Boss 302S suspension parts list:
    FRPP 302S Rear LCAs M-5649-S
    FRPP Rear LCA relo brackets M-5650-A
    FRPP Lowering Springs M-5300-P
    FRPP Dampers M-18000-C
    FRPP Adj panhard bar M-4264-A
    FRPP Jounce Bumpers M-5570-A
    FRPP Swaybars M-5490-A
    Steeda Competition 3rd link 555-4106
    Steeda Spherical Bearing 555-4104

    The wife's not going to like riding in the Boss much anymore ;D

    I knew it...... ::)

    Parts list looks good Gary! Where did you get it all from? I hear a ball joint kit and bump steer kit are a good idea when lowering the vehicle. Any plans for this?

    More stuff to get........ :mad:

    Capaldi Racing and they've been great to work with so far.

    There's a new bumpsteer and ball joint kit coming out in a few weeks from FRPP that is part of an entire front LCA replacement, so I'm holding off for that ;) I will also do the front LCA bushings M-5638-C then.

    Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the differences, PIONEER! :)

    I have the Roush Track Pak kit sitting in my garage waiting to go on at some point...after those are done, probably a set of the Multimatic or JRZ 3-way dampers $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Leo was recommended to me by a local WC driver/owner, good to hear your experience was positive.

    Capaldi Racing are good people. Who did you deal with over there?

    Is Ford Racing coming out with a different front lower control arm or just some of the parts you mentioned?

    I'll be looking for you to post faster times at MPH during the Roundup.

    I'm going to sit on the fence until these come out, FRPP should also have them if you need it to say Ford.........

    Who makes those springs? I hear you about sitting on the fence as that's what I've been doing for more than a year now. I've just been sitting on it longer than most since my car shipped with the first batch and I've had so many track days in this car now that I'm overwhelming the stock suspension. It won't be quite as aggressive as the Griggs torque arm, Watts link and coilovers as my GT500, but it should really firm things up and significantly improve track handling.

    Eibach is making the springs..........

    I basicly had on my old car what you are putting onto your Boss, you will like it!

    I'll sit and wait a few more months and see what's happens.

    Very nice Gary! I'm starting to wonder if it would have been easier just to call Paul Brown and buy a 302R from him. Lol
