SR performance liwering springs question

Has anyone installed these without the upper strut mounts that AM says you need?

(Look at the "application" portion in the description)

This is a very commonly asked questions. I've seen countless people install these Springs without upgrading the Strut mount or Dampers. However, we've found that the GT500 Strut Mounts and Dampers make this install a lot easier then if you use the stock Mounts.

I hope this helps! Give my CS team a call if you have any further questions. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

Just make sure to order some camber bolts or else the inside of your tire will wear really fast. They are only like 10 bucks

How do the camber bolts work? Sounds like I'm going to need an alignment too...

If you get the camber bolts it keeps your front wheels straight up. When you lower it the wheels automatically camber and this will fix it and you won't have to get an alignment

You can order them but you should probably check O'Reillys and auto zone they should have them

Not at all. Straight as an arrow. I am still getting it aligned since its the small amount of wear on the tire you dont notice. I was honestly expecting a little pull, but non that is noticeable. I also just ordered an adjustable panhard bar that I am going to put on this weekend just to top it off.

It should adjust camber and the toe to make sure that the front tires are in a straight line. Buying camber kits will definitely help in the long run, but I honestly dont have the money for them haha. If you already bought them, then you made a good choice. Alignment is just a cheap fix.

So, my springs and pan hard will be here tomorrow. Since it seems allot of people just did this install, did you use spring compressors to get the new springs on? I know sometimes you need to compress the new front springs to get that top 21mm nut on. I know a trick to get the stock springs out so if I can get the new ones on without compressors I can avoid having to rent or buy some. Thanks

I used it to get the old ones off just to be safe, but the new ones were short wnought to get on with someone holdingit down while you tighten the bolt. Its a matter of preference.

what about the strutt tower mount falling apart? anyone have a problem with that? there full of bearings I think so if they open when you take them out all the bearings are going to spill out? is that correct?

Yea mine came apart when I had it cranked down and tightening it. So you could probably just get a little pressure down on it and it would be better
