    Thanks.

    The Volvo handles quite well with the ipd suspension, but the tires are holding it back right now.

    I have a 93 Mustang that used to be setup for Top End running and did fairly decent in the twisties. I wanted to put the full Griggs suspension under it, but decided if I wanted to build a Mustang to handle a 99 + would be better, then decided I'd rather hold out and get an older Porsche 911 and really have something that would carve a corner.

    I purchased the car with the swap done already, it is a fairly straight forward swap though. You can get the kits from Converse Engineering. http://www.converseengineering.com/

    That's a good thing though, it's kept me from getting a couple tickets. Where as every time I get pulled over in my Mustang, I always get one for something.
