rear howling noise (2013 v6)

i recently started hearing a howling noise coming from the rear-end of my car when going into corners hard... Anyone know what this is? and can lowering my car have caused it?

How much was the Mustang lowered?

Yes, lowering a vehicle with just a set of springs and maybe shocks can disrupt the geometry of the suspension, and cause noises and in some cases, eventual failure of suspension parts.

The car was lowered about an inch and half, any advice on what additional parts i can get to prevent those noises and failures?

There's another post going on with a driveshaft problem due to the owner installing lowering springs. Panhard bar is required.

Check out that post.
