Recommended supporting suspension mods for lowering springs?

Hello forums, im interested in lowering my mustang with eibachs sportline spring kit. I have 20' rims currently. Ive heard of people getting away with only the springs and i hear others recommend other mods to release stress? Which mods would be most recommended in order to prevent problems? Thank you

Rule of thumb: If you're lowering these cars, get a panhard bar and at LEAST camber bolts (you can get the camber plates if you want, but for the Sportlines, the drop isn't too crazy). You may or may not need them, but you probably will. Better to be safe and have options then everything be crooked.

I have the Eibach Pro kit. All I used were the springs. They're great for a DD and no worrying about scraping.

When lowering you need A new adjustable panhard bar as has been stated, but you also need LCA relocation brackets. When you lower the body relative to the axle, the LCA lose their ability to place load on the axle, and can actually pull the axle up on acceleration which results in a kind of squatting effect. Not a big deal if you dont floor it, but you will notice in any sort of spirited driving.

Panhard bar like the others have mentioned.

If you have budget & you want to save money ... then do the shocks & struts as the same time you install the springs ... it will save on labor costs.

HD Mounts are a great upgrade too ... they will replace the weak factory mounts. The upper mounts eliminate the "popping" sound that is common on lowered cars when the factory upper mount fails - See more at: Steeda 2005-10 Mustang/GT500 Mustang Heavy Duty Upper Strut Mounts - Made in the USA 555-8120 - Free Shipping!

Let me know if I can help assist you with anything ... you can reach me at tim@steeda.com.

Best Regards,

TJ
