For the Mustang it's the rear end, always has been! I had to heavily modified my 1996 SVT Mustang Cobra with stiffer lowering springs, lower rear control arms, stiffer rear sway bar, a functioning Panhard bar from Griggs racing to get the rear to actually track properly. Try driving the live rear axle in the rain and you'll quickly understand why the Mustang has always had so-so handling characteristics. Still like the Mustang but bought the ZL1 due to GM's desire to build an actual track ready vehicle. Instead of putting gobs of power into a crappy chassis platform that was initially based on the Ford Fairmont and drive it fast in a straight line.
