Eibach Pro Kit and BMR Pan hard

First post here,

Can I get by with using an Eibach pro-kit and BMR panhard bar at a minimum for right now? Car is a '12 GT with 1200 miles used mainly as a weekend car. How soon would I need to replace other parts? Is there anything else I should go with (camber bolts, strut mounts) My goal is to improve the aggressive stance of the car, sacrificing some ride quality is ok. Money is a little tight and how much would it be to install prokit and pan hard for my ride?

That actually sounds like a great start! May need cc bolts or plates but isn't gonna hurt, install cost will vary by area, but shouldn't be much more than a few hundred

Re: Eibach Pro Kit and BMR Pan hard

Thanks for your responses. So, I think im gonna go with just the Pro Kit, Camber Bolt, and Pan Hard. If I was ordering from AM, it would be these

Eibach Mustang Pro-Alignment Camber Adjustment Bolts (05-13 All) 5.81260K - Free Shipping!

J&M Mustang Adjustable Panhard Rod (05-13 All) 23795B - Free Shipping!

and a pro kit for around 250 bucks. So around 450 for parts, 60-80 for an alignment. maybe 150 for install.
I'm looking at around 780 for the drop. Does this sound right?

How long until I should expect my stock shocks/struts to wear out?

I ordered an EIbach pro kit and a j&m panhard. I was told from a friend that has the same parts that I wouldn't need camber bolts. Would I need camber bolts? I don't mind having a little more camber around -1.5.

You might not mind it but your suspension and tires will wear more quickly

-1.5 is a low amount of camber IMO. My tires won't see much of a difference the way I drive. I didn't buy this car to be easy on the tires and a little camber would help the cars cornering. How much camber would the front have on EIbach springs with no bolts?

So I put on steeda ultralites a week ago and will get it aligned today. Eventually Ill go with the konis, gt500 mounts, and phb. The ride is rougher over bumps but while cruising its exactly the same comfort level. I like the raked look and am pretty happy. The thing is i hear a squeaking noise coming from the rear and I hope its just the springs settling.

They're called bump stops.
