Question I need some advice on lowering

I am about to lower my Mustang and I need some advice. I was thinking of getting the eibach pro-springs and koni-yellow shocks. What is the deal with the panhard bar? Do I need the bar and the location bracket or just the bar? I am a little confused on what is needed.

Hey Speed,

Great choice going with the Pro-kit and Koni Yellows! I ran that exact same setup personally and loved it.

In regards to a Pan-hard bar, whenever you lower the car they are highly recommended to bring your rear end back in-line.

When lowering, it tends to shift to one side and you want to make sure it is perfectly straight!

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

-Will

The self adjusting ones easy to install? DO you just bolt it up and you are good to go after the the car is lowered?

Lower the car. All you need is the panhard bar. No relocation brackets required.No such thing as a self adjusting bar. The most the rear will be out of line is 1/2" unless you slam it to the ground. Adjusting the panhard bar is easier than installing the springs. Do it once and you will say to yourself what took me so long. Dont be nervous and take your time. Its not a hard job....

I got the sportlines. It dropped it a lot. I used the sr performance adjustable panhard bar from am. It's ok. I get a lot of road noise, and I feel the bumps a lot more. I ordered the cam bolts, but the alignment shop said mine was good and they didn't need them. I figured I would because it was a 1.5 front, and 2 in the back. He said my drivers side was on the verge, but they were able to do it.

I love the way it looks. It handles great. Order some cam bolts. You won't know if you need them, and they are cheaper through most places, then the alignment shop.

Can you see your front tires leaning if you look from the front of the car? looks great by the way

I like the drop and will be doing it as soon as my Koni yellows come in. They are on back order from AM for 5 weeks. I had to buy them now since they were on sell.
