Hello! I’m building a 2005 Mustang GT for Rallycross and I want to lift it. Currently I’m going to be getting a set of Bilstein hd front struts and rear shocks. I’m looking for a good company to make some that can make longer shocks for Rallycross and I’ll be using the car for stage rally in the future

That's strut in the front right?
Generally this means getting the universal Bilstein rally strut and adapting it for your use. Unless there's a rally strut available already. Maybe look at hotbits of they are still around.

For now (rallycross) you could put coilover sleeves on the Bilstein HDs and buy 2.5 inch race springs in the rate of your choosing. Then set the ride height you need.

Or just run it with stock parts. Rallycross usually isn't all that rough around here.

For rallycross you will probably be good with bilsteins and stock springs. Maybe some spacers to add a little lift if needed.

Otherwise you will probably be going full custom built struts like Perry mentioned.

I used these guys for the front struts on my focus.

Not coilover.

I wanted taller firmer springs to go on my stock hats.

Told them how much lift and how much firmer I wanted.

They worked out perfectly and not expensive and came quickly.

Yes Sir. I based my Poor-Man's coilovers off your custom spring info. You said 175lb worked well on your Focus, so I use 175lb Eibach Coils on my SVT Struts. Worked Perfect

Oh that’s cool. Glad it worked out for you. Yeah I saw your coil overs over at FF- they look good.

Hopefully one of these days I have that damn car moving under its own power again!
