Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers

SO, to compliment my Eibach Pro Kit, I ordered some Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers for the rear of my Stang...

They are more like adapters really. They fit flush against the hub, bolt on to the factory studs, and have new studs to mount the wheel onto. It's my first experience with these. I chose the 30mm, so it pushed the wheels out right at 1.25" on each side at the rear. (Part # 90.4.30.020.3) The quality is really nice, they have Eibach stamped on them...lightweight aluminum, strength tested, hub-centric for a perfect fit and wheel balance.

I jacked up my girl in the garage tonight and installed these. Of course, I torqued all nuts properly. The look is SO MUCH BETTER...no more tucked goofy looking factory rears! It looks like a sweet stagger-fit setup now. LOVE IT. It's dark outside, so I'll snap a pic or two for you guys tomorrow.

Funny thing, and some of you with experience in suspension might be able to tell me why...but even though the spacers are exactly the same thickness, fit 100% flush with the hub and the back of each wheel, the driver side is slightly further out than the passenger side. I notice it, because I'm a picky SOB, but it's not much. Could the rear axle be in some kind of weird off-center stance from the factory? I probably didn't notice it before with the factory tuck. I measured the spacers and they are to the penny, exact same width, and everything is flush, tight, and torqued. I drove it up the road and the ride is smooth as can be, handling seemed nice in the hard curves too.

Wonder, should I get it re-aligned? I don't think pushing the wheels out 1.25" on each side would affect the geometry would it?

I'm going to guess that the rear-end has always been off, you just noticed it more with the spacers. As in the 05-09 cars, once you put in lowering springs, the rear-end will kick out to one side. An Adj. panhard bar will bring it back in line. An easy install.

Ahhhh...that makes sense then. I don't guess it's hurting anything, but it goes back to me being a picky little SOB. lol

Any recommendations for an adjustable panhard bar?

Thanks!!!!

Re: Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers

Right, it usually won't hurt anything. I put one on my car for exactly the same reason....It just bugged me with it being offset.

I, of course, recommend Maximum Motorsports components. Their parts are solid and high quality. This is what we run on our personal cars. Plus forum members can get special pricing on their products from us!

Cool deal...I'll definitely look at Maximum Motorsports then...

Is a panhard bar hard to install? I know virtually nothing about suspension, so I'm learning.

Re: Eibach Track Widening Wheel Spacers

I have not had a chance to wrench on a 2010+ yet, but I would suspect it is as easy as the 05-09 cars, which is pretty easy.

yea lowered 05+ the rear will push to one side due to the panhard bar, not good for the bushings for a long period of time~ an adjustable bar will fix this as im sure was said above.
