It became clear after talking with the engineers at Maximum Motorsports that my rear suspension wasn't going to hold up to the power I was putting to it. That ended up being a very expensive conversation, but it also means that the #FairmontProject will have a very capable suspension when I'm done with it.
I've been learning a lot about Fox bodies during the course of this build. One of the things I learned is that the suspension components from Maximum Motorsports are great. I'm not saying this because they paid me to. I'm saying it because I believe it to be true. After all, building Mustang suspensions is ALL they do. You'd think they'd be good at it by now.
Special thanks to Jack Hindley and Kolton Sinclaire for all their help.
