2015 Mustang

Do you guys think the 15 Mustang will have Ford's infamous 4X4 stance? The prototype cars never look that way, but Ford's show room cars all set up like a 4X4 truck.

Re: 2015 Mustang

?? I love the way my SVTPP sits, bone stock... And think all stock Shelbys and Mustang GT's currently look just fine. Lowering them a bit is fine, but it comes with compromises. The cars have to meet Ford's standards for suspension travel, ground clearance, ride quality, etc...

2011 GT500 SVTPP Silver, stripe-delete, glass roof, accessory side scoops and techno-geek package

Mods: VMP TVS, 2.4" pulley, VMP elbow, CJ dual-65mm TB, res-delete, AFCO H/E.

660.42 rwhp, 641.74 rwtq

Dyno results were with old 2.59" pulley and before the AFCO H/E...

Re: 2015 Mustang

Take a look at any BMW wheel/tire to body fit. Now look at your Shelby, itís OK but not great. However I can live with the SVT cars. Itís not that the cars need lowered the finders donít fit the stock ride high very well. ( my 2 cents)

I guess you haven't looked at a lot of 4X4 trucks recently. I think the stock stance of the Shelby is just right. Unless you are racing the car, lowering the car makes no sense at all to me. Doing so will require that you make room for plenty of lumber and make sure you bring your posse every time you take the car out for a ride. See the following instruction video:


2015 Corvette Stingray 1LT, Blade Silver, 6.2L - 460 HP, 8 Speed Auto, 0-60 in 3.8 Seconds
2014 Ram 1500, Flame Red, 5.7L Hemi, ZF-8HP 8 Speed Auto
2006 HD 35th Anniversary Dyna Super Glide (High Flow Air Filter, Stage 1 Kit, Race Tuner, Screamin Eagle II Slip Ons)
2011 BMW 328i (Wife's Dream Car)
2012 Shelby GT 500, SVTPP: Traded for a 2015 Challenger. Traded Challenger for 2015 Stingray. My Neighbors think I am nuts. They are correct.
