Will FP track shocks and struts with OEM GT non pp springs work? I don’t want to lower car, at all, yet want a more performance oriented suspension.

Yes they’ll work, but the Base springs are pretty soft. Consider the PP1 or GT350 springs (non-R) since you’ll be in there anyway. due to differences you have to order two springs from one side on the GT350 parts.

The FP track struts/shocks are a good choice. I agree with @NightmareMoon that the gt350 springs will work better with those struts/shocks. If you decide to go with the GT350 springs you'll need two of the left rears if I remember correctly. Search; you'll be able to confirm if it is the left rears. I love the rear FP track shocks, not a huge fan of the struts. I'd consider Bilsteins for the front. I'm running FP track struts/shocks with GT350R springs on an EcoBoost.

If you are ever near Hampton Roads Va area you can have my PP1 springs… they are taking up space. I replaced them with BMR min-drop and FP Track shocks.

OP, did you ever run this setup (FP Track shocks/struts with OEM GT spings)? I was thinking about doing the same because I don't want to lower. Seems Bilstein B6 would be the only other alternative. Thanks

My experience with the rear is the track shocks are too stiff for stock rear springs. Shelby GT350
194# front springs are perfect with the track struts

Does anyone know if the track rear shocks are available individually? I can only find them as part of the track damper kit. One of mine has bit the dust. I'll replace both, but I don't want the whole kit.

A simple Google search shows that you can buy them individually:

Thanks.
I didn't find them previously. I'll give it another try.

...and found them at CJ Pony Parts right away. Getting old sucks.

The drop from a base GT to the FP track setup is very minimal, I wanna say 1/2”. I have a base and put this setup on, it’s (IMO) perfect now.

I believe I read somewhere the GT350 springs will lower the base GT setup 10mm…?

I have the full FP track handling pack on my 21 gt . That suspension kit it's a minimum drop . Almost can't tell its lowered . It's worth it

You shouldn't have any issues. I believe when you get into the 295-305 range is when people have issues up front (assuming you keep the stock fenders and don't do wheel spacers that is). I've seen plenty of focus running a minimum drop or something more extreme on 19x10 square w/ 285/35 w/o issues.
