Would like to see pics from the other side see how far off the rear is. I know I had to have a adjustable panhard bar to realign it. I was always told anything over .75-1 inch you will need it.

I have the BMR adjustable panhard, I got it installed at the same time as the drop. I don't know how to adjust it.... I'm a dummy when it comes to suspension, but they guy that did the install is pretty good and the adjustment came out pretty good, it seems even. I also have to get an alignment, I only drove from the shop which is 2 miles away to my garage. I'm waiting for my new wheels to come in so I can get the alignment done at the same time.

Ahh ok.. Then ya should be perfect. I did my spring install and adjustable panhard at a friends shop. Wasn't hard at all. Panhard is really easy if you take time to look at it. Oh I have BMR also...lol


Now to paint that rusty rear end...lol..you think ford could have did that for us.

It I'd probably what I'll go with. The pictures don't do justice to what the drop really looks like.

Re: I need suggestions on lowering my car

yeah it really is one of those things you have to see in person and you notice right after you put the front ones on and you have to put a brick under your front tire to be able to slide the jack out from under the car
