Hi all, new member here from North Carolina.

Picked up an 87 around 6 months ago. Took a while to get her straightened out. She was low mileage but not running well. Very grateful as this sight was a huge help.

I am a foxbody guy have an 82GT and 87GT. Had a bunch of leftover parts and just got done redoing the suspension.

BMR front control arms (thanks to this sight)
MM Adjustable rear Control Arms
MM Caster/Cambers
Bilstein HDs all around
H&R (MM) lowering springs
Cobra steering rack 
MM input shaft
17x9s (245s front, 275s rear)

Will eventually do some engine mods but she is running great now and will enjoy for now.

Ron

Hi, below are the links for the springs and wheels. Also the springs were an extra set I had from a build that never happened. Back is fine but front is a bit lower than I wanted. I ordered the BMRs and am hoping to raise it around .5-1". Should have it done by the weekend and see.

Here is a picture of the other side which is sitting a tad lower. It already has a small spacer applied on this side only. I would like it to sit a little higher. Not sure if the BMRs will accomplish this or not. If not may just add another spacer to the H&R spring
