Should I get these?

Hey gents,

I have a 2010 and these springs are on sale this month, from y'all's experience can I just throw these on or is there a lot more that I'm not seeing. I've done suspension work before but not on my stang.

You can do just the springs, but it's recommended to get camber plates or at least camber bolts to keep your tires planted, upgrade the shocks unless you're fine with a harsh ride, and a panhard bar to re-center the rear end.

You don't need to do them all at once and can probably survive for a bit without them, but over time your tires might wear differently and the ride might start to get to you.

Is the offset noticeable for the pan hard bar?

Some people can see a visible difference and others can't. It's different for each car for some reason. I plan on getting the springs now and not installing them until I can afford an adjustable panhard bar.

Any idea how hard it is to adjust or is that a professional job

From what I've seen it's not hard. Just measuring and wrenching.

gweze001,

You really just need the adj Panhard bar with these SR springs, for a 2010 Mustang. The best part about the 2010 Mustangs is they already have high quality GT500 strut mounts from the factory. You shouldn't even need a chamber adjustment with these mounts.

The adj panhard bar is very necessary to center your rear axle though. Otherwise it will be kicked out to the driver side about a half inch or so. Adjusting the panhard bar isn't difficult. The suspension needs to be weighted, so leave the car on ground when adjusting. You only need to measure the wheels from the outer rear fender lip. Once you have the same measurement on each side, you're good!

The ride on those springs is pretty close to oem, a buddy of mine has them and I can't tell the difference

No one will notice the off centered rear end except for the people that know that this happens with a lowered Mustang. Everyone else won't even think about it or see it. If you are dropping the car 1.5 you can just throw some camber bolts in there. Most of the people that complain about a rough ride after the spring install are people driving their 1st dropped car and come from a Honda/Cadillac daily driver background. Not saying that Mustang owners don't want a smooth ride with upgraded shocks and springs,just saying that its not completely necessary and the rough ride is over exaggerated by a lot of new owners. Remember,that is MY opinion though.
