I know of the common suspension modifications for the 03-04 Cobra, including: Springs, wheels, tires, subframe connectors, and IRS bushings.

I also know about caster / caber plates, as well as a proper alignment.

My question is this, what are the other items you feel should be addressed? Anything else?

Not including brakes.

What he said, but the important thing is to support the mods when you drop your stang, if you don't the geometry will be Fudge. Bump-steer kit front and rear, X2 ball joint, that's some good example.

the list can go on and on. intended use and budget? then we can help you out.
as for bumpsteer kits id stick with either MM front and rear of the FTBR rear. for the rear id get the deluxe version, much stronger

The car will run the local autocross series this year, along with VIR 2-3 times.

I want to stay away from coil-over's and k-member modifications this year, for budget reasons.

I am looking at from and rear bump steer. What makes the MM kit better than Steeda? I am getting the FTBR rear.

Honestly never used a steeda kit. I've had 3 MM kits in the past and they have all treated me right. I'm sure the steeda is a quality piece

Ive got my K out for headers and while I could do it later, Im starting to think what the hell.

I just dont want clunky cheap feeling stuff up there. I know you gotta give up some stuff to get the traction but if someone has any personal experience/regrets, throw it out.

personally if i were in the position financially right now id hop on the steeda k-member that they are producing right now, my second choice would be the MM unit. both are robust and will be good for street use
