Lowering springs

What all is needed other than springs? I have herd everything from nothing to new caster camber plates all the way to just a panhard bar.

The short answer is, it depends. What are you planning on doing?

I used eibach pro-kits on my 2011 5.0 and didn't need anything else. Everything was perfect. Just realignment. I love the drop, just perfect. U don't want to go any lower then the pro-kits. As careful as I am, I scrape everywhere. Good luck

I did the same as Boss. The Prokit is a really good ride height. You might consider getting a panhard bar. Those aren't too expensive.

I plan on getting k-springs. Don't plan on getting camber plates. While I'm doing the install I'll be doing panhard bar and LCA but that's unrelated.

I love the look of being lowered but I hate the ride on harsh roads which is everywhere here in TX.

You will need an adjustable pan hard bar to realign the body are you will have one tire further out on one side then the other. With stock tires it is not as noticeable but with wider tires you will definitely see it.

I have the Eibach Pro-Kit and from what I read several people have had no issues with camber. I bought the camber bolts just to be on the safe side, I will take it in for an alignment after break-in (Roughly 2k miles)

Not unrelated... I did the K springs, Panhard, LCA's and LCA relocation brackets. Kinda need all to make the springs work. Took it to the dealership on monday and they were able to adjust the alignment without the Camber bolts I had bought ... just in case.

Re: Lowering springs

I also have the Eibach Pro's on mine and love the look, and is the perfect amount of drop. Any lower and you will be scraping everything

I also have the pro-kit with Eibach dampers... love the ride and height is just right... its low enough too, I can't even stick a regular Jack towards the front part or even on a lift at a shop... I was considering getting the Boss splitter when I get the CS valence, but if I'm having clearance issues now, I'm assuming it'll get worse with the splitter
