Looks awesome I'm geussing those are 18s. I'm seriously thinking about swapping my 19s for some 18s. Now I just need a lowering kit. Did you measure your height before and after the drop kit.

Yes sir before was 28 3/4 up front back was close to 29 1/2. Now front is 27 1/2 up front and 28 out back. And yes they are 18s and love them. Had 20s before but went with 18s now. No rubbing and smooth ride! Good times!

When you drop your car your axle will shift a bit to the drivers side. The panhard bar adjusts it back in place. Easy install and well worth it

I imagine you had a good set of instruction and is there any plus to getting the bar without lowering the car?

Man, its super easy to install. Took me a few minutes looking at you tube and a couple of breaks. I believe you want your axle centered to avoid damage to other components over time. Some cars do not need one as the axle shifts very little. I say drop it and if you see a shift of more than 1/2 inch buy one

Re: Bmr springs installed

Which video on youtube did you use to do it? Was it your first ever install? Which BMR kit? Total Cost? Any info or heads up? What about the need to use gt500 strut mounts?

Second install brother. The kit cost me 255.00 shipped through LMR. No need for GT500 mounts. Be careful when compressing the strut springs. The mounts can come apart. If they do, no big deal ford sells them for 42.00. Compress the spring slowly with the spring compresor. When you realease the strut nut ( nut holding the mounts together with the struts and springs) release slowly to hold mounts intact. Just search you tube for mustang springs install. The job itself is easy and super easy if you have an impact. I used the oem parts with my springs. Rides like a cadillac

Looks great man!

But .... please tell me this isn't your dog in the lower left corner. If so, I'm going to need your man card.

You can put the mount back together if it comes apart, just make sure you have all the bearings. It's normal for it to look like one is missing, the race is never completely full.
