Probably a new panhard bar and some camber bolts. Shocks and struts are always a good idea too (from what I've heard).

Important to get chamber plates dude. The stock will suck with modified lowering springs.
Bumpy ride, noise, some say made rattles.

Chamber plates and lowering springs will work fine for a starter on suspension.

I have springs camber bolts and panhandler bar and mine good. I may need to replace shock/struts in a while but it's fine.


I was told
More than 1.5" drop - camber plates
Less than 1.5" drop - camber bolts

Stock struts and shocks? Heard gt500 cc's won't work on stock shocks?

GT500 Strut mounts will fit stockers or aftermarket on 2005 through 2010 mustangs. 2011 and 2012 you have to have the ford racing shocks struts otherwise they won't work..

yeah if you have the lowering springs already on there isn't a need for a spring compressor pretty much on and off. and yes you can use the strut tower brace, same 4 studs coming up through the top, just the rubber pads are a little bit beefier.

I'm not mechanically gifted with cars at all, your talking to the same guy that intitally gave up on changing his back breaks because the caliper got stuck haha. But it was pretty easy. the back springs were easy to get in, super simple I managed those in 30 minutes. The front took aabout two hours to unbolt both sides and get together but it's pretty straight forward. I watched motorz video on suspension work and looked at a lot of write ups the night before I did it.

You don't necessarily need anything else. However, there's a few things you can do that will go well together with your Springs! I installed a set of Eibach Sport lines on my 2011 GT, got it aligned and I'm good to go. You could do Struts/Shocks and caster camber plates, it just depends on how many miles are on the car. If your car has say 60+ K on it, when you put the springs on the struts/shocks may blow out shortly after. Also, if you go lower than 1.5" you'll need caster camber plates. Anything less than that, just a simple alignment will do the trick!

I would recommend throwing the Springs in, getting it aligned and see how it rides. If it's a little bouncy, just throw some Shocks/Struts down the road!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance, feel free to shoot me a PM!

-Dan

So here's what I've got:

Bilstein HD shocks and struts
H&R race springs
GT500 strut mounts
Eibach camber bolts

Will this all work out on my basically stock 06 gt?

Gonna install it all at once.
