4 link and tubs

I have a 98 stang gt and want to 4 link it and tubs, however going down the side of the rear body of the car is the hatchback support that is part of the fenderwell, fearing cutting out existing fenderwells due to not having need support for the hatch.... any ideas

Why 4-link and tubs, when there are bolt on "stock suspension" race parts capable of hooking the car good enough to run 7 second 1/4 miles at 190 mph??

I have seen a couple tubbed hatch Mustangs where bars were added to tie the hatch support area to the rear of the roll cage, you just have to get creative.

You might sign up over at www.YellowBullet.com and look around, lots of Mustang racers and pics over there.

the car already has bolt ons and it will not hook with ten in wide tires, so only alternative is wider tires and complete aftermarket suspension.

Who's bolt-ons, and what are they?? What shocks are you using?? Don't say it can't be done if others are hooking on 10" tires with no problem.

How fast, what ET?? What engine, trans and rear gear??

Just throwing 4-link and tubs at something won't help if you don't understand how the suspension should work, it will just be a band-aid. Throw out the details and more info of what you have now and you may find there is something you are overlooking.
