    If it was mine, Ford Racing PP1 springs for your car combined with Koni S/A shocks n struts (or Bilstein). I would also do rear vertical links (delrin plus bearing only) at the same time. Contrary to the internet experts, they will not increase noise or screw the ride and provide a huge upgrade over poly or stock version.

    Last time I saw that car at the track it was running circles around me. I’d say the current setup spring/shock is pretty damn good.

    I have no doubt the driver was a major factor. My philosophy is upgrade the parts that your skills have exceeded, …or broken LOL
    I’d be shocked if the car didn’t already have a set of Koni

    You got a Ford Performance spring set that lowers about an inch and stiffens things up a bit, and a set of Koni SA struts / shocks. I had picked those because the street ride wouldn't be too harsh but it would tighten things up enough for track use. If you give those a go I think that you would be satisfied.

    Don, while in my hands the only mods were a set of adjustable front strut mounts to add some camber, the lighter squared wheel & tire set, and the Roush mufflers which the first owner had done. Otherwise all stock 2017 PP1.
