If you or your buddy do not have a spring compressing tool, you can rent one at your local auto parts store. This will make the removal of the old springs from the front struts both SAFE and easy for removal and install.

Looking good! Those new mods are really going to change the appearance and ride quality of your Mustang. The SR Springs will lower your center of gravity, improve handling, prevent wheel hop and nose dive when braking.

The installation is definitely as easy and straight forward as the videos you see on YouTube. I have confidence that you and your buddy can get the job done!

Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. Definitely post up some after installation pictures! We'd love to check it out.

-Dan

Will do! I also wanted to add that I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box for the shifter knob and found a boot retainer included also!!!!

If my garage looked like that, I would never take my car to a dealer to get mod/fix. #UltimateWishList

+1, Dream garage for sure. Mine looks nothing like it but at least its heated, but because its a single car garage it makes things very confining when trying do do mods. I'll have to wait a week or two until the weather improves before I take it out and do the spring and panhard bar swap. So do you think from the video that it should be possible without spring compressor's?

Awesome! Yeah, it's a good benefit of buying a shift knob from us.

Keep up the great work with your build!

Be careful of ball bearings falling out of the assembly.

It probably would be possible however for safety's sake I would go ahead and get the compressor.
