2010 mustang axle shift?

So went from the factory 17" wheels to staggared 19" wheels and ive noticed the driver side wheel pokes out more then the passenger. Im on stock suspension and running 275/45/19 tires there pretty big so im going to a 40 series sidewall. would my axle not be shifted as much when I swap tires? And I really want to install my ford racing lowering springs or should I go ahead and get my adjustable panhard bar and lower it later?

Are both wheels made for your back spacing?

Get an adjustable Panhard bar. It will allow you to center your rear end.

Thats what im planning on doing. Would it be dumb of me to put my lowering springs on 1st then do the panhard bar later? Or would lowering it make it worse?

It will get worse when you lower it. Just do them at the same time

on a 2005+ due to the panhard bar if you have lowered the car it will kick out one side of the axle more than the other making the rim/tire push out. It can be corrected with an adjustable panhard bar.

Re: 2010 mustang axle shift?

I helped a friend do his adjustable panhard on his 06GT. We did basically what you said, removed the old and put in the new.

We put the axle on jack stands so it would simulate a sitting on the ground condition (or ac close as we could get).

We used a string and a weight hanging off the edge of each fender to measure how far the string was out from the wheel. Both sides should be the same. Adjust as needed.... but keep in mind as you adjust the panhard the actual CAR body will shift side to side so the stands need to be on the axle shaft with the front tires on the ground (no other stands) and the front tires set so they cant roll forward or backward.

Be careful here and adjust slow and keep an eye on the car moving.

once happy you can go the extra mile after tightening the jam nut and put the wheels on it and drop it on the ground and check measurements one more time.

He finally put some lock tight on the threads to keep it from unadjusting itself~

Gotcha. Would it a bad idea for me to go ahead and lower it and do the panhard bar later on?

Lowering causes it to need an adjustable panhard. Probably lower and panhard at the same time. As the car goes lower the fixed panhard pushes the axle centerline towards the drivers side.
