I planning on walling my mustang with 4 xfl 12s and throw a few batteries in the back. My only concern is I don't see helper bags or spring for mustang to support the weight. Is there anything that make that would help my car support the weight of the batteries, wall, and subs? BTW it is a 2015 v6.

with coilovers or coils? might have to get different coils. not really sure how/if airbags would help load on that type of suspension

id expect it to be expensive though

how bad do you think it would be if I left it stock and walled it? im more worried about the sag damaging my transmission and other parts.

Either go with coilovers or have coil spring specialties build you some custom springs.

I have helper bags on my car. Work amazingly and only $80

coilovers are very pricey. I was hoping to find some helper bags for my car or helper springs but no luck I didn't see any for any model mustang.

So do you guys think my stock suspension could support 400 -500 extra pounds in weight with out casing harm to my transmission and etc? Wall would be where the back seat seat was. Then 3-4 extra batteries in the trunk with a 5k and small 4 channel.

Nope. You gotta do something with it. You're dropping $1,000+ on audio, you're gonna have to spend some to carry the weight too.

I have 500 in amp 450 in sub's grand in electrical and 300 on front stage. And I still need to build the box. But I have to delay the wall. I figured they made helper springs and helper bags. What I get for not doing research before I bought stuff.

Have you considered an alarm [emoji14]. Getting airbags on that car would be pretty dope though

My car has an factory already if there going to steal it then a different alarm won't make a differences. But I will have everything mounted where it will not be easy to steal. And I also live in the barracks and someone is always outside so I'm worried about it getting stolen in the middle of the night.

Oh gotcha. Might be worth installing a kill switch to the fuel pump or piezo tweeters in thr headliners on a external circuit. I dont trust factory alarms

Oh it works. Whenever people try to open my passenger door before I get to my car the alarms goes off. My car is keyless so I never use the fob to unlock it. It unlock whenever I grab the driver side door handle and o have to the key in pocket and siding literally right beside the door.. But I was figuring 400-500 wouldn't be two bad because that is the equivalent of two fat people riding in my back seat.

True. Your car is already heavy as it is. New mustangs are overweight SOBs. Build your box/ wall from fiberglass. Would be super light

It unlocks whenever I grab the driver side door handle and i have to have the key in pocket and be standing literally right beside the door.. But I was figuring 400-500 wouldn't be too bad of weight because that is the equivalent of two fat people riding in my back seat.

That would be hella expensive and require more skill with fiberglass then I would ever have.
