It might be one of the best changes Ive made to the car in the 17 years that Ive owned it. My wifes car is a 2015 Audi and just using seat of the pants feel, I have more confidence laying this old mustang hard into a corner than I do her car. Its a blast to drive it and Shaun has a very well constructed, easy to install setup.

There is no impact on width for a 65/6 mustang. There is a small impact on ride height since the rear you are using has 3 inch tubes and the stock rear had tapers. So the rear end of the car will sit about 1/4 lower with all other things being the same.

Cool, I thought I had read somewhere that it was some small bit narrower or something. Sounds like I've got a direction.
