The 17's vs 16's debate has went on for years, sure you have a little more
tread width, but you lose sidewall, which the F-body's need to put down the
power. The WS-6 deffinately does not sit a .25" inch lower, it uses the same
1LE springs that your '98 1LE has in it! The airbox is a joke. However I am
not trying to put F-Body VS. F-Body, what I was trying to bring up is look at
the Mustang GT VS Cobra!! Leagues apart, yet in the same class! Either move
the Cobra's, or put the SS & WS-6 back in!

IF it werent for the 17 x 9 inch wheels on the SS/WS6, Id say
let all regular torsen rear end (ie stock) 99+, and
regular auburn rear end (98s) run Fstock.
but I think the 17 x 9s can give an advantage over
the 16 x 8 that is stock on the camarobirds.
how about allow them to run the 16 x 8s the regular cars use?
BTW, the stock WS6/SS have springs that lower it about .25 inch,
which will allow one to get more camber than a regular Z28/firechicken.
Also, the airbox itself on the WS6 has a larger opening (I agree ram air does
help in autox), so it allows the engine to suck more air, even at low speeds.
Just my opinion (sorry Ken)
