    Well, you DO get ball joint binding with the 1.75" lowering of the upper arm.
    Pro-Motorsports has the aluminum "Wedge" that re-positions the upper ball joint to eliminate the binding. Opentracker re-positions the ball joint on their upper arms along with the bearings....As do TCP and Global west.
    IMHO MII suspensions only give you the additional room, but not greatly improved handling.

      This might be true with a stock mustang II set up but if you check out the Martz site you might be inclined to change your opinion

          That's exactly what I thought. The replacement A-arms with upgraded geometry seem like the trick to better handling.

          Mustang II offers better ride, but corner carver? I'm not sure. I was just searching for someone who could contradict this opinion. Charlie

                So true!
                I gave some friends a ride in my car for the first time a recently. When I floored it their eyes got real big and they were hanging on. I was thinking to myself sorry but thats all it's got!
                The preceptive of a car guy is on a level all it's own.
