Much stiffer than expected

The ride is very stiff. I am not sure why other reviews don't say that. Had I known that, I would not have upgraded. You feel every bump. The handling is very good if you don't mind bouncing around ...

What kind of springs? What springs are pre-assembled on the struts, K, P or maybe even N? Also, there should be an option to choose which spring you get.


  • looks like p springs from the parts number

will i have clearance with shelby cs1 rims i purchased shelby cs1 20 inch rims for my 2013 mustang gt.i was wondering if i will have clearance in the wheel well without rubbing issues.


  • Congrats, you found the right person for your question. I have 13 GT w/CS1, 20X9/20X11. If you got the 20X11 for rear it can rub occasionally with 1" rear drop. I currently have Ford Racing P springs which drop 1.5 front 1.0 rear. I have only rubbed with a passenger in the car and 110+ mph hitting a big dip on the highway. I did add a 1/4 spacer to the rear, but I also have NT05 Nitto 315/35/20 tires on rear. If you get 305 or less wide you will most likely have no issues. Up front I had 275/40/20 they looked great but when I went to Auto X track (stock front springs at that time) and was turning and braking real hard they were rubbing fenders. A 255 tire up front that is real close to factory tire height will not have any issues. If you have 20X9 in back you will not have any fitment issues. Enjoy your new setup! My car is black with black CS1 and nobody walks by without complementing.

Caster/Camber Plates Do you need caster/camber plates to get the alignment in with this setup?


  • If you want more caster and camber yes. With only a 1 inch drop you will be fine using a camber bolt in place of the upper strut bolt. only my toe needed to be adjusted after install.

Is there a version of this Ford Racing handling pack that will fill the convertible? The Pre-Assembled strut/ spring offering is a great benefit for those of us not willing to approach the strut work otherwise. Item #50499 MPN# M-FR3A-MGTA


  • We do not carry a version that will fit the convertible models. The Ford Performance Assembled Handling Pack - Coupe (05-14 GT) will be set up for the coupe models.

2012 handling pack What is the best handling pack I can get for my 2012 Mustang GT/CS, I would like to drop 1 inch and have it handle like a track car but still be comfortable on the street. Thank You, Joe


  • I have this kit on my mustang and i daily drive it. The ride isn't bad at all. Obviously, its a little bit more bouncy but on normal roads its great, you get use to the ride quality very easily. I haven't put my mustang on the track but on the curves I take on the roads in my town it feels quite planted, body roll is also pretty well maintained. Like I said though, i haven't really pushed the limits of the handling yet, but with what I've driven, i can tell you its pretty good.

I have a 2006 GT with all original suspension and 70,000 miles. It's time for change. I'm looking at the Eibach Pro System Plus at $1000 and Ford Racing Assembled Handling at $1,500. Is there $500 woth of difference in your estimation? I also looked at Rouch. I am not going to do any of the work, it's just to much for me. I'm looking for some thoughts from you based upon what you have seen. Better to take parts to Ford dealer or a local garage where I've had work done in the past? th,


  • The Ford Performance Assembled Handling Pack - Coupe (05-14 GT) is definitely something I would consider. This kit comes with everything you are going to need to put a whole new suspension on your car, including the bushings and end links. The Eibach Pro-System-Plus (05-10 GT), item # 387363, ( is virtually the same, except it does not come with the front and rear jounce bumpers, frame brackets, and panhard bar. The Ford Handling Pack is more convenient since it already comes with parts that I would recommend when upgrading your suspension. Though, when you go with Eibach, you have the ability to choose which panhard bar and bushings are best for you. It comes down to what best fits what you're looking for. As for who to take it to, I would call a few places and see their prices. A Ford Dealer is going to be more expensive than a shop most of the time. I would go somewhere that you can trust overall.

    Supper upgrade for a GT

    This kit has quality parts, mated for best effect. Improvements over the Track Package Premium GT were; virtually no brake nose dive, stiffer sway bars for even less roll, adjustable dampers help you go from track to street, 1 inch drop all around. Initial medium stiffness setting was very much like factory Track Pack road feel. If you own a GT but have no track package, I'll bet you'd pay more for this after having driven it on the new setup.

    Ford Racing Handling Pack - What an great improvement!

    I have a stock 2005 Ford Mustang GT. We decided to try to improve on the stock suspension. We choose the Ford Racing Assembled Handling Package. We were very impressed with the quality of the parts. The instructions were concise and clear. Each part fit perfectly up on the car. When we were completed, we felt immediately a difference in how the car handled. No more washing out in the rear on hard curves. Also, the tires just feel more planted, than the stock suspension. We are glad we made this investment. It makes our 11 year old car drive like a new pony again!

    You get what you pay for, and this has it all

    This product is amazing. I have seen other mustangs just do the sway bars or just the shocks, but this kit gives you the best of it all and it's worth every penny. And since its made by Ford, all the parts fit like a dream. No having to get creative to make things fit or line up. only thing I wish it had was torque ratings for each bolt. I had to find a service manual online to make sure everything is tight and not gonna fall apart when I take a turn at the track at 80+ mph

    Performance not looks

    I ordered the kit from AM two weeks before the mustang 50th anniversary event in Las Vegas. I had it shipped directly to the local mustang performance specialist for install. It arrived promptly in 5 business days (west coast) The shop installed it with no problems in time for my trip to Vegas. The change in appearance is subtle, but the change in handling is night and day. No more dive, squat, or roll it keeps the inside rear wheel planted exiting turns on the throttle. The ride is stiffer but not harsh. 1000 mile round trip to Vegas with no regrets. Thanks AM!

    Great Kit that fits well - needs better instructions

    Put this kit on ourselves in about 4 hours with a lift and the right tools. Downloaded the 13 page PDF instruction manual from FRPP web-site. It is good, but does not give you a parts list so as you get to different parts of the kit it can be confusing to determine what bolts, fasteners, etc.. are for what. The most confusing part was the bolts and fasteners for the install of the new struts. The bag of hardware has standard and eccentric bolts, but really does not tell you which to use. You can only use the eccentric bolts on the lower mounting hole (as instructed) if you enlarge the mounting hole in the strut (it is etched so you can see how far to enlarge it), but there is nothing in the instructions that even mentions this. I called FRPP and asked them about this and was told if I wanted to keep it to the stock alignment specs that I only needed to re-install the stock strut bolts - the eccentric was only if I wanted a more performance alignment. I took it back to a Ford dealer for the alignment and I already knew by looking that my right front was way out on camber so the first thing they tell me is they can't get it back to stock spec without the eccentric bolt in the lower mounting hole. Called FRPP back and got a different tech and he confirmed that I needed to enlarge the hole and use the eccentric bolt. My advice is to enlarge the holes on both struts and use the eccentric bolts in the lower holes on both sides and then you have the adjustment even if you don't need it to get back to stock specs. If you take it back to Ford for the alignment make sure they "listen" when you tell them this is a FORD product. They kept my car all day and then told me when I picked it up that they couldn't get the right front to spec because of the "aftermarket" parts that I installed - this was disappointing since each part is FORD blue, with FORD model numbers and the logo clearly printed on them - doesn't give me a lot of faith when Ford service techs can't recognize Ford products, but after "further discussion" they actually modify the strut and installed my eccentric bolt and got it back to stock spec.

    This kit fits perfect

    I expected some challenges with this kit, but it fits perfect. Good quality parts and packaged well, which is a good thing, because UPS Freight did not take good care of the pallet at all! The only downside is the lack of instructions, but YouTube and the Ford Racing tech line can answer your questions. I had this done on jack stands in may garage in 4 hours, so its an easy install if you are used to working on suspension. The 1" drop is fairly mild though....I would like to see more like 1.5"

    Everything needed in one box

    After a lot of extensive research, this by far is the best way to go. All ford parts and all matched to work together. Nice to have everything needed and not having to mix and match, and struts already pre-assembled. If you know what you are doing you can have it all installed in a few hours.
