For suspension, I like my BC Racing coilovers. BC only sells their base performance coilovers for the fSVT, but I like all the adjustability and the performance feels very consistent across all four corners. You will likely want to go with aftermarket rear toe and camber arms to dial in the alignment for the track. Factory alignment is not track friendly and the OEM arms are not adjustable. Both Massive Speed System and Megan Racing offer some good ones. Iím using the Massive ones and like the metal bushings verse the rubber or polyurethane bushings. I'm sure others have some good recommendation on suspension components. And of course, recommend using polyurethane bushings on both front and rear control arms (Prothane has worked good for me). C-F-M also has some tubular front control arms that have the hyme joint and will also give you adjustable camber, but they are $$$. I have them on my SVT and they feel like good quality, but havenít decided yet if they were worth the extra cost.

What are your plans for the engine?

Look forward to seeing updates on your build.

Thanks for the suspension recommendations. Looks like BC makes some quality stuff. Definitly going with the tubular front and adjustable rear arms. I'm still debating anything engine at the moment. I have been in contact with Kugel Komponents. Waiting to get some more information on their rear end conversion kit.
