Noob suspension question

Okay, so I'm trying to learn my 2013 gt and its stock parts. I bought it used and as far as I can tell it has only been lowered and fitted with flowmaster axle backs by the previous owner. I've noticed the car has a lot of wheel hop and the rear seems very loose so I was browsing control arms and panhard bars. My only issue is that I've heard when you lower you are pretty much required to upgrade suspension. I'm not sure if the control arms and panhard bar is stock or not as i'm not really sure what I'm looking at. Can someone help me out.

the lower control arms look like they have been replaced with bmr control arms. Not sure about the panhard bar though.

LCAs are BMR, PH is stock. The stock shocks aren't helping much if lowered. You probably need relo brackets to get the lowers back in alignment. An adjustable PH bar wouldn't hurt either. You may need an adjustable upper control arm if it's dropped more than an inch.

I am in agreement with 5LHO. And Grease those LCA's with what BMR recommends which I believe is Mobil One Synthetic.

Get adjustable panhard bar because your chassis is likely not centered with the body now.

Get some BMR Relocation Brackets and use 2nd notch down if 1" to 1.5" drop.

Take photo of the upper control arm that is attached to the top of the differential. Hopefully it is adjustable and your pinion angle is properly adjusted since it is lowered.
