Springs

I have a 2012 mustang v6 and just received my SR performance lowering springs. Do I have to buy a panhard bar or anything or do I absolutely need any more parts besides the springs ??

Don't need a panhard bar IMHO. You may need a set of Caster Camber Plates to put it back in alignment, or are least some of the offset caster camber bolts. Also may need new isolators. For the top & bottom of the springs.

I went through this on my 96 SVT Cobra in the fall. I used H&R springs for a 1.5" drop. Midwest Motorsports Cast camber plates, I replaced my shocks and struts with Bilsteins. Replaced the isolators. I added full subframe connectors. I wanted lowered and handling.

People will tell you, you need a bumpsteer kit, lower control arms, and another boatload of parts.

You won't need shocks unless you've put 75K miles or more on the car. Many people get away with just the springs and the bolts. Just get a good alignment after you do it. Good luck.

Yea in your 96 that's what to do. But in his 2012 he NEEDS an adjustable panhard bar.
