What are you goals?
Smooth driver? Road race?
What is your budget?
Best depends on what you want to do, and how much you are willing to pay.

To me, what you said is humorous. Honestly, to even be successful (and survive)
as a suspension manufacturer/seller. Your stuff has to be pretty good these days.
Consumers are "educated," courtesy of the net.
It then becomes a question of details in the design.

You need to answer the questions the other posters asked to receive good direction.
Personally, I don't like them stock- I wouldn't even want to drive one that was
stock. The experience of driving something old in today's traffic to me doesn't
include not being able to stop and turn.....

"Best" is pretty subjective. To me, best is a setup that upgrades and improves on the stock design versus tossing it all out in favor of something that while "different", may not really be any better. Along that line of thinking, I tend to favor Opentracker's and Street or Track's stuff. IMHO, you can spend a lot more money with someone else and get stuff thats looks slicker but is maginally if at all better as far as improving street driven handling.

ok, daily driver/restomod. the word budget doesnt apply. by the time one restores the suspension to original or improved original, you can buy an aftermarket setup.
I personally think a mustang II type is best design with the coil overs bolting to the lca. i think the strut towers are too weak for a mac strut setup.

i am currently doin the improved original deal now, because the engine i'm using fits between the stock strut towers. but i am already working on my next engine setup for the same car. A 4.6 mod motor with twin turbos. i am planning on a ford IRS for the rear
