Tickford lowering springs 2018 GT (non mag)
« on: May 28, 2023, 08:41:30 pm »
Firstly I'm a new owner of a 10sp 2018 GT as of 24/05/23
My car is stock except for tickford 400kw package and res delete all done with previous owner (not sure I'm going to keep it thay way, too loud for my taste) but I would like a new plenum for intake growl.

1st V8 too Ive transitioned from a much loved E46

I'm mechanically minded but not in a position for much jobs currently (bike crash 15 surgeries)

Moving on (slowly)

I've noticed a knocking clunking at the rear, odd strained sensation when turning slowing on/off driveway in reverse and other odd noises

My hope is it's rear sway link bushes or wheel hop but it feels......not normal. A 2022 with mag I drove was completely smooth at all times.

I want to kill 2 birds. I'd like to get tickford lowering springs and have all that checked at the same time.

However I've heard terrible things about Melbourne tickford performance center.

Where do people go (when diy isn't an option) for mods

I'm in western suburbs. Aintree.


I appreciate any and all advice, banter and hazing

Mustangs come with clunks standard when made. Replacing the springs will probably fix the issue as the bolts holding the suspension in will be retightened.
Have been some stories of tune issues with Tickford but haven’t seen it.
Air raid make a nice replacement filter box.
Best options for mods are Herrod Performance or Mustang Motorsport.

Ok great.

Yeh I'll contact them asap. Tickford was $1300 with fitting and shipment, communication is terrible with them though.

I might get the airbox done at the same time as a plenum.when I find one.

I appreciate your time
