Despite being an LSx fanboy, a new Mustang GT is better in almost every way than a new Camaro SS.

Even with a SRA, it still handles better than a Camaro (and I don't know if Camaros suffer from this, but GTOs with their IRS suffer from lots of wheel hop).

You can calm the wheel hop with better bushings and airbags inside the springs

Maybe on some goats with minor wheel hop issues. Some people have tried throwing all sorts of mods at the problem to get it to go away.

Even with aftermarket springs/shocks and axles, I still have a ton of wheel hop. I don't recall having so much when I had 3.91s though

I had wheel hop in my 04 cobra with IRS and different bushings and the airbags solved my problem.

any way to I.D. rear axles and caliper brackets from a 94/95? i got some in a trade, im just not sure exactly what year theyre from. also, any idea if the rear calipers are the same from like 94 to 04? i think im set on the front. might need like ball joint spacers or something tho.

Most IRS cars have issues with wheel hop from what i've seen.

I'm assuming he is referring to "drag bags." Inflatable bags you put inside your rear springs to stiffen the rear, add clearance for 26+" tires, and prevent wheel hop.

It's a very cheap, easy to install solution if you don't want/can't get a real drag setup.

I still have my four well five if you count the ferrari kit that came in a trade but that thing needs work.


Putting a 3.1L in it, it has a big (for a 60* v6) cam high output heads big injectors big throttle body and headers plus catless exhuast so i think it should make around 180-200hp on a good day, it wont set the world on fire that is for sure but they don't make **** for these things performance wise...

It takes about 8 hours to drop the cradle so if i want to do more later it isn't that bad start friday night be done monday after noon type deal.


It has 9:1 compression with the firebird slight dish pistons, so i think it could handle some boost from a small turbo set up, i would be happy with 240-250hp out of it honestly in the future. I wish i had bought the nascar v6 i had found out of a grand national cup car, that sucker would have made 550-650hp n/a.
