Hasty photos. Poor lighting choices for a black car, but its good to see these ready for duty. More in a couple of weeks in autocross trim.

Love it, any spacers needed for your setup? And how much camber are you running?

Yes, the front needs a bit larger than the usual stud and spacer length required on the front to fit the 315 tire with the strut to spindle slotting and camber plate settings I'm using.. ~3.2° front camber, ~2° rear. Stock fenders.

The 12" rear is just bolt on and go. Didn't even need to bend any brake line brackets or anything (but its close :)).

Due to a knurled ring on the shock body at exactly the position of the 18" wheel rim, I was not able to run the 12" on the front which one of the Houston autocrossers can manage with these wheels. We run about the same >1" spacer width, but his coilover body is smooth where the wheel rim is closest. He also had to cut fenders, because most of that width ends up on the fender side with the 12' wheels.

Just mounted my new SM-10's this morning!
These are the 10x19's ET40 with Continental Extreme Contact Sports mounted 285/35/19 squared set up!
I purchased these through the Canadian distributer "Wheelco" with the TPMS and tires mounted and shipped to my door. Just waiting for the weather to dry before I can test these on the road and take some (much) better pictures :)

My OEM's with Pirelli P Zero weighed in at:
275/40/19 rears = 64.4 lbs each
255/40/19 fronts = 60.6 lbs each
Apex with the Conti's = 52.0 lbs each
The quick math shows a total weight loss of 42 lbs......wow! I cant wait to drive this thing lol!

Also went with the McGard lugs (in black)

Cheers!

Yes, stock magnaride suspension. I have added the IRS alignment dowel, bushing support, brace and vertical links prior to the wheel install.

These are the Anthracite finish.
Correct, all IRS upgrades are from Steeda. I took her for a quick spin (before the rain starts) and I am VERY pleased with this look and set-up!! Added a few more pics!

Great looking car!

Last question: what's the comfort level of the Magnaride suspension ?

In normal mode, she is quiet and very comfortable, my wife loves the ride and we can actually have a normal conversation when driving highway speeds. Step up to sport+ or more and its a true sports car! Very little body roll and nice in flat with hard cornering! I really, really love driving this car!

... and the forged 18x12 VS5RS with 315/30 A052 tires weigh even less at ~47.2 (cheap scale, so +/-, and a smaller diameter setup so some savings from that alone.)

Another question! Did you get any of the Stop the HOP kits or did you buy the parts separately?

I purchased each piece individually from a local Mustang parts dealership. They had everything I wanted in stock so, no waiting and no hidden costs if I purchased online! Being in Canada, this was my best option :)

How did you know what parts to buy to get the results you wanted? I'm a novice, I want max handling for daily driving use but I don't want to break the bank :)

The alignment dowels and bushing support along with the brace is a great starting point, you may not need anything further! I had the funds so did the verticals as well at the same time.
I was following what a lot of others on this forum were saying, and Steeda's website was very helpful as well!
