Angry Q: Suspension Upgrades? - 2015 302 Yellow Label

Ok,
So.....love the power, love the looks...but the handling is bloody awful...

Power (even in moderation) is lost everywhere, it spends 1/2 the time bouncing up and down on the road and I swear 300 of the HP wander off looking for a coffee shop whenever it goes round the bends....

And YES I drive the damm thing...sliding out in 1,2 and sometimes 3rd IS fun, and yes I enjoy it....but bloody hell it would be good if it was tied down and didn't make my passengers feel sea-sick.

So, What options are open to do SOMETHING to the suspension?
Black label gets S4 coilovers, can I get them for the Yellow?
KW does a kit for V3, springs/coilover options
Rousch does a kit too (is that sacrilegious putting Rousch on Saleen?

Any other options?

And before any says "slow down, moderate power or "it's American" I'm not asking for that opinion....just one on actually HOW to harness all 715hp and do something useful with it and NOT get eaten by a bloody Golf GTi in the bends

Thanks for listening

Chris

S4 coilovers can be applied to the YL. It should do what you want it to then. Would make a nice upgrade.

Any suspension components for an S550 Mustang will fit your Yellow Label.

You can go to Saleen Performance Parts for their Black Label S4 kit. You can go to Ford Racing for their aftermarket package kits, you can go factory Ford Motorcraft with their Track Pack items, or any aftermarket company currently supporting the S550 platform.

Yes you can upgrade to the S4 coil overs to the yellow which is what I can putting on mine. All set aside this thing is a rock ship...

The only thing listed on 15-16 parts for the suspension on Saleen's site are some bushings...
