    So I am currently having a pulley and a custom tune to my 11 gt500 and it looks like the next thing I need now is some suspension mods and tires so I can hold on to traction!! I need some advice and help and what I should be looking to get.... I was looking to get bmr relocation brackets and bobs lca. Should I be looking at anything else? Also which tires should I be looking into for my 19" wheels

    The LCAs and adjustable panhard bar made a world of difference in ride quality and would be my two choices to start. They are a pretty low-cost upgrades and strait forward to install. Next on the list is the UCA and adjustable stock\struts.

    As far as tires, depends on what you use the car for...DD, track, weekend, etc and how much you want to spend. I love my Conti for DD and 1-2 track days a year. There are better options if you plan track more.

    I have a package that I have been doing for a lot GT500's. Including my own 2013.

    Adjustable Upper Control Arm
    Control Arm Mount
    Adjustable Panhard Bar
    Panhard Support Rod
    LCA's (Fixed or Adjustable)
    LCA Relocation Brackets
    Lowering Springs

    If you would like to give me call I can explain what these modifications do and how they improve instant center, anti-squat geometry etc.

    relocation brackets and adj. panhard bar and support rod is what you are looking for

    Thank you for all the information this will be very helpful, for tires I am just looking for something that will stick very nicely at 560whp and wont give a harsh ride. Will the M/T fit on my stock 19" wheel?

    Listen to Van. Exactly what I did and I am very pleased with the improvement of traction and handling. My own experience for tires are Michelin PSS's. Grip, quiet and good ride. I am on 20's, not 19's. Good luck!
