Well still haven't put the new wheels on...been really busy lately. But I do have an update. I had the inside of them sanded and painted to match. Can you guys tell they're were even welded on looking inside?

Guys, sorry it took so long. I finally got the black SVT wheels mounted on with Michelin pilot sport PS2 tires. 315s in the rear. Yes there's an annoying bumpstop bracket that got in the way so they added aluminum adapters which are very nice pieces. I wouldn't really recommend going past the 315s unless you have that bracket removed. I think it's pretty much welded into the chassis...not sure. As you can see they stick out just a little bit..I kind of like the look though. Real happy with the way things turned out. Now I'm ready to get her lowered.

I told you guys wrong. It wasn't the bumptop bracket, but the upper assembly line lift bracket the tire was rubbing on. So of course I need to remove this piece before using drag radials and wider tires and such. Hope it's not a pain in the ass to remove.

Looks like a series of spot welds need to be drilled out and a cut off wheel should take care of it

Yeah I'll have to wire brush the paint off to spot the weld points. Or I could just leave it alone, but if I want to go with wider tires someday that will be a definite. I think it looks cool with the tires sticking out just a bit. It's not bad.

If you lower it you should have no more problems that way you can take the spacers off.

At first they tried these thin little spacers and then they pulled out these 1.25" billet adapters which were $65 a piece costing me $130 for 2. Will those FRPP springs lower it enough?...it's only like 1.25"...same length as the adapter LOL.

I forgot how wide you went, I got 18x11 and have no problems anywhere with mine. They worked fine with ford racing springs and sportlines. I just
wouldn't want my wheels sticking out a 1/2 inch.

Still havent heard people using spacers to make 11.5 work, just work with
the bump stop if not lowered pretty sure. I would get springs on asap and try it again.

I will be going with the FRPP handling pack as well. Also I see you are looking at all Shelby brand. You would save some coin by going to the manufacturer that actually makes the parts that shelby sells.

The upper control arm and panhard bar you listed are both BMR pieces.

The camber plates you listed are made by maximum motorsports

Not sure what the price difference between the manufacturers pieces and shelbys name on them, but its worth looking at.

Thanks Jarrod. I was just looking at the maximum motorsports site the other day and thought those caster camber plates looked exactly alike. A colleage of mine was trying to get me to buy supsension parts from that site. I'm a Shelby whore though... drool And already ordered all of those pieces.

Got my latest mods put on. They include: Ford Racing handling pack, Adjustable panhard bar with relocation bracket, Shelby Adjustable Upper Rear Control Arm with new bracket, Lower Control Arms, Caster Camber plates along with lower Front Arms. I will probably be adding the Tubular K-Member next....will shed more weight off the front end. :)
