Thanks, but I never plan to supercharge it. I will save the money to buy a better car next.

I heard the stock sway bar is not bad, and the V6 and GT share the same thing, although not quite sure.

No plan to lower it. I want to make sure my car can drive in the rain.

If I do not lower it, I do not need the panhard bar, do I?

You'll need the adjustable pan hard bar if you lower.

I'd lower next if I were you. Easy to do, cost effective and looks awesome.

Why wouldn't you be able to drive in the rain if it's lowered?

I've never had a problem in the rain with a lowered car compared to factory height, but maybe I've been lucky. Panhard bar will still help stiffen the back even if you're not lowered, but it's mostly for when it's lowered.

Lowering will give you better handling & a more aggressive stance ... let me know if I can help assist with a discount code or answer any questions you may have.

Best Regards,

TJ

Thanks for your suggestions.
Finish your exhaust first.

1) BBK Catted X-Pipe.
2) Axlebacks of some type: Ford Racing Sport Axle-Back Exhaust (11-14 V6). I have these also.
3) Have you considered Ceramic instead of Chrome Headers? More money but less maintenance. I have these.

From what I've read only the V6's with the performance package share the GT suspension components such as the sway bars and the standard V6's have different ones. So it depends what options you had on the V6 to know if there will be a real improvement.

One other question is you mentioned before you added a supercharger you would just buy a better car. Any plans in the near future to upgrade? It seems like you have a nice bolt on car may want to just save for that 'better' car if that is your plan in the near future.

Honestly? I did the whole suspension all at once and it was a world of a difference.

If you have some money to spare, I'd begin working on that.
