n00b Suspension Question

Heyo,

I have Steeda Lowering Springs (1.5''), Eibach Pro Damper Shock and Strut Kit, adjustable panhard par, Steeda HD upper strut mounts on my 08 V6.

I use my car as a DD and have felt like the performance was better than stock but...I feel like when I'm driving down backroads in town the wheel/straight line and turning just doesn't feel "tight". Like, I will be driving down a straight road - maybe the pavement isn't even, and I will feel like the car will be leaning to one side so like I have to keep both hands on the wheel to fix it. It isn't when I go over bumps. Just driving in general I feel like the car pulls to one side or the other pretty heavy.

I'm not sure if it's just the way I drive or if there is something I can do that would "tighten" the suspension? Or fix the pulling sensation. (best way I can explain it). After I did the suspension mods I had the car aligned and I had a shop install all the parts to begin with. The alignment came back perfect. So I'm not sure what's wrong.

If this sounds crazy, just ignore my post lol. Tx.

Thanks. One other thing I'm thinking is a couple months ago when I lowered the mustang the guy had mentioned how the brakes were at 50% and I might want to upgrade em soon. I had put in a supercharger a little earlier and he said with the added power on the stock brakes they may go faster. I never heard any squeeking or anything from them.

But, say if I'm parked or slowing parking in the garage, when I press down on the brake pedal I can hear like a creaking noise. It's weird. It's not a squeek and doesn't exactly sound like a metal on metal thing. But I visually checked the brakes and it looks like the front ones could probably be replaced. I think I'm going to have to replace the brakes and then check the tire pressure too. Might be something simple like that.

The brakes won't affect steering pulling one way or the other unless you're on the brakes though
