Struts & upper strut mounts

Hi all, I think I read it here but I can't find anything on search. Will the FRPP upgraded upper strut mounts work with the Eibach Pro-Kit struts and springs? They would go on an 11 GT Premium. AM site says one inch drop in front with the Eibach-Pro-Kit. If the above is right, then I would buy the mounts and camber bolts instead of caster camber plates.

with a 1" drop you might not even need camber bolts. But yes the GT500 strut mounts will work fine.

Do I understand I have to buy the 05/10 spring and shocks? What else would I need?

Thanks!

he is right, I slipped my mind on that. Yeah 05-10 struts.

1" you wouldn't REALLY need a panhard bar to realign the back axle, but would be something to consider.

else wise I think you got it.

shocks, struts, springs, strut mounts, maybe camber bolts, maybe panhard bar.

Also it was advised to me that lowering the car without doing LCA and relo brackets that I might experience more wheel hop. To be fair I am dropping 1.7" in the front and 2.4" in the back so a little more than you're looking.

I hopefully will have my stuff finished installed later today and can actually give more insight into this, worst case tomorrow. As I won't be doing the LCA and brackets right away. Didn't have the money. Soon as I can afford them they are getting installed though.

Yeah LCA & relo brackets are on the list. I just didn't want the original post to be too long :/$
