Springs

So I drive a 2014 mustang v6 has 5k miles on it.. I want to put the Sr lowering springs on. The ones on American muscle. 1.5 inch drops. If u guys could help me out what all do I need to buy? I know I need the panhard bar.. but do I also need the plates?

While you don't "Need" them, it is a good idea to have the panhard bar and at least the camber bolts. The camber plates, I wouldn't say are necessary, but if you've got the cash, invest in them now and have options later.

And remember to get an alignment after, the alignment guy will love you for the camber bolts/plates

What do u think of this set up for now.
http://m.americanmuscle.com/sr-strut...-kit-0514.html

http://m.americanmuscle.com/jm-panhard-0509.html

http://m.americanmuscle.com/whitelin...kets-0513.html

Will those help me with traction off the line? Because I'm about to put in my 3.73 gears.

Yep, that will definitely be a good start. Suspension wise it will be good. After all that I'd look at what tires you're using. Even if your suspension is set up properly, if your tires are crap they won't hook.

Should be with practice to get used to things. But as for the Pirellis, I've heard mixed reviews about the ones Ford uses from the factory but I can't speak first-hand. I have Falkens on mine. Had Michelin from the factory but they were the crappy Green Energy X ones haha

If anyone else has any good suggestions for suspension I'd appreciate it. I don't car for sway bars or new shocks and struts

Before you buy panhard bar and Control Arms, buy your Shocks and Struts, to make everything work in tandem. Some people don't need the adj panhard bar.
