Good to know... Since it was hard enough to put back on I will leave in lol... I'm waiting for the weather to clear up I haven't test driven it yet, I'm kinda anxious... Will the difference be significant??

No the difference isn't significant.

All our cars come with those axle weights to help cut down on vibration. I ditched mine when I installed my relocation brackets and never looked back. It's about a 10 lb weight savings.

I was under the impression that not all of the 2011+ mustangs even have them. Something about fixing weight distribution or something. Then again I've never seen one without them.

When I had an 05, I couldn't belive how bad it rode compared to my buddys srt8. My 12 rides as good as the challenger. That leads me to belive there doing something Idk.

Wow that is expensive, I'm sure they're no better than the aftermarket stuff... BMR has been really popular in suspension parts on these Mustangs and not stupid expensive
