Newly installed suspension mods

Hi guys, haven't been on in a while and just wanted to give an update on the new mods added onto my car! Over christmas break my dad and I installed the following:
- H&R Super Sport Springs
- Eibach Sway Bar Kit for the front and back
- SR Triple Adjustable Panhard Bar
- BBK Caster Camber Plates
- Stack Racing Strut Tower Brace
- SR Adjustable Sway Bar End Links

FINALY GOT IT LOWER!!!! So happy with the results and just wanted to see how everyone thinks it looks!

ALSO: I am hearing a popping sound that sounds like it is coming from the back end sometimes when I turn at slow speeds (such as parking) and also when i hit bumps... Anyone have an idea what this may be? I feel like the bumps might be the stock bumpstops but I have no clue on the turns... Thanks for any info!

Heres some pics to show the new stance!

Looks good, i have the same parts sitting in my closet, still waiting to install!

Are you sitting on stock Lower and upper control arms? And stock shocks and struts?

Possibly be where the noise is coming from

Sweet!!! I wish I had it in me to invest that much into my suspension. Only problem for me is if you're going to put lowering springs on you HAVE to do everything else at the same time. Looks great man!

Looks great! I like the wheels too.

Why are you using the stock bump stops? Just take them off and cut off about half of it.

Do either of the sway bars or the panhard bar use greaseable bushings? IF the bushings are not properly greased it will lead to a pop or clunk.

OP Looking good! I have a huge soft spot for White Mustangs! Sorry to hear about the noise that you're hearing but have you gotten a second opinion or have anyone taken a look at the car? If for any reason you're having trouble with any of the parts you picked up through us let me know as soon as possible! I'm always around to help out!

Alex

Looks good but you should have installed upgraded shocks and struts to support you springs that are no lower.

How much of a drop did you get?

Yikes! That's quite a bit on stock stuff. From what AM and others say is that a 1.5" drop is about the Max you can get away with on stock shocks/struts.

Looks bad *** BTW!

You can get away with stock ones. But they will ride a bit more rough since they will be more compressed at stock height, just hope they don't max out (usually don't). And they aren't designed for the drop so they will wear quicker. As long as he upgrades in the next 20k ish miles (give or take depending on how you drive, and road conditions) he should be good.
