BMR springs?

Thinking about lowering my 13 V6 PP. Seems like the BMR springs get great reviews as far as ride quality. Anyone got these on their V6? Especially curious how the ride quality is with stock shocks/struts. Wondering if aftermarket shocks/struts make a huge difference in ride quality. This is my DD so I want to keep the ride reasonable. Post up some pics of your V6 if you have them.

Thanks!

For anyone who hasn't seen the stance of the BMR's, this is Tucker from JLT's 5.0

BMR suspension is a great company, I took advantage of a sale on AM for lca's and will install
them Sunday after I did a Stack Racing spring install myself w/ J&M adjustable panhard bar &
Whiteline lowering brackets. The car is now level, but I had a bump after a test "Burnout". I
may need to install an adj. upper control arm?

Pinion angle Is something you need to look at now that your lowered. Could possibly explain your "bump". I'm still new to the 3 link suspension on these cars so I'm not sure if you need an adjustable UCA or if a non adjustable will work. I do know that one of the bolts on the UCA mount needs up torque to something like 300ft.lb.... I have some nice tools and some real nice torque wrenches but I don't have one that go's over 250, I was thinking that I would either get a shop to put it in or just have them torque that bolt to 300 after I get it to 250. Also, don't reuse that bolt, you will need to replace it.

Right rebeltx, the pinion angle I understand is to be -0.2 to -0.1 and the lowering I've
done may have thrown it out of spec. I also am running two different tire sizes on my
pony. 215/65/17 on the front and 235/55/17 on the rear. I want to move the rears up front
and get some 50's for the rear but the overall diameters don't match up so well. Dang!

I'm not even sure where to take that measurement at... Any idea how to check pinion angle properly? My aluminum DS has a CV so it's not as big of a deal from my understanding but I would like to get it back to spec just for the sake of getting it rite so I don't have to worry about it later.

There are threads on other websites like AFM you can google their site, or just Google Mustang
pinion angle. you can buy a "Finder" at autozone. Thanks for the reply, Alan in sunny Seadrift.
