Installing springs

Hey guys I know it's a lot of work, but what is the installation of lowering springs? I got the cobra jet springs for Christmas and I'm gonna put in new adjustable lca's and a rear uca, so what is the installation on those?

Go to LatemodelRestoration.com, look up lowering springs for ur model year. They should have installations instructions. I bot FR springs from them for my 2011 GT/CS convert and downloaded the instructions. They're good.

Hey, jellyroll: In addition to the FRRP lower'g sprgs what else did you (have to) add? I'm told that an adjustable panhard bar (I bot the BMR adj bar) is pretty much required. I also have the jounce (anti-bump) set. Will I have a problem with camber, alighment, rougher ride, etc? I have all the parts--sprgs, bar, jounces--but havent installed anything yet. Thanks for ur imput. BTW, didnt ur 2011 GTCS already come with the tower brace? Mine did.

Yeah I lowered 2 inches and didn't even need to use my pan hard bar, it just sits in the garage till I go lower.

I used Steeda ultralights which dropped 1.5f - 1.8r. After it settled, my rear was only shifted about 1/2 ", so I installed a Steeda adj pan hard bar. Had it aligned...it didn't even need camber bolts. It dialed in perfectly.
Hope this helps.
