Suspension

I am thinking of upgrading my suspension. Right now I'm thinking Steeda springs and Koni shocks/struts. What else do I really need? Panhard, bumpsteer kit, sway, lca?

Adjustable Panhard to re-center rear, camber bolts or cc plates, lca and relocation brackets. Good luck.

Lowering, stiffer springs are a good choice. LCA's and adjustable UCA as well as a pan hard bar to align the rear from the lowering springs. The factory sway bars need not be replaced as they are pretty good for most applications. CC plates are only required if you lower more than an inch and a half. I'm lowered on Ibach Pro line and I still have the stock camber bolts with no CC plates. Hope this helps.

The Steeda are 1in front and 1.5 rear. Would I be just as well with the bolts?

Cheaper alternative than cc plates.

Deffinitly a panhard bar, i did similar set up and my axel shifted. I would get cc plates or gt500 strut mounts because the stock ones fell apart on me. I didnt do the uca or lcas right away and it wasnt a big deal, but its easier to do it all in one shot.

+1 gt500 strut mounts. It is shameful what ford puts into the 14 GTs. I accidentally cracked one open and was shocked at how cheaply made they were.
