I have no real issues with daily driving. Even in the rain. Snows a no go though.Tri-bar, congrats on what looks like an amazing build and car. I'm jealous.
Question, what do you or others think about using your suspension on a true daily driver, as in 365/rain/snow/daily commute to work duty? Too much?
Old post Tribar, but just picked up the Hotchkis UCA. You said you replaced the rod end? Do you have a link to which one you replaced it with? And did you swap out the diff bushing to poly or another rod end? ThanksThe set up listed above is after a long list of parts that I have tried and tested .

I agree. Once all the stuff is over with my Wife's passing. Wider wheels and tires are on the list of things to do.Fun read and Mr. Tinker really should be your new moniker, ha. If you are fast on 275s , you will see dramatic improvement going to 305s or 315s. We often tend to get too technical in our answers , yet with a Mustang speed is a simple case of relieving a heavy car of it's tiny tires. The footprint on the ground can go from from close to 10 inches to close to 12 with a jump from 275 to 315. No offense, but all the cool stuff you have done to your car, this is probably the least expensive , overall, and the most effective to increase your speed. Four more inches on the payment is probably worth 2 seconds, imho. Might get in on the Apex special buy, then buy your tires in the future --- could work out well as there are a couple of sleeper donuts that are just now getting feedback in the market!
