Lowered the Stang

Finally got the coilovers to complete suspension combo. BC BR coilovers, Steeda adjustable street pan hard bar, Steeda billet rear lower arms, Steeda upper rear arm, BMR relocation bracket, BMR pan hard support bar. Sorry for bad pics

Why did you go for a panhard support bar?

nice list of parts! I do think you should have gone with adj UCA rather then the non-adj UCA but anything is better then stock.

the adj panhard bar helps to re-center the rear end when lowering. I don't think its always needed if the drop is mild but its a good upgrade IMO

I think he was just asking about the support, not the actual bar.

What brand?

Because you will need a ADJ UCA if you go very low.. Personal experience here. I'm as low as you can go with those BC's.

I got the support bar as well. It wasn't really necessary, but after seeing the factory support bar, I'm glad I chose to go with the aftermarket option.

Nice list of parts! Just missing bumpsteer and balljoints but with all the new components you added things should definitely feel much better.

Steeda makes a non-adj. UCA for lowered cars.

I got the whiteline support bar as well when I had the panhard bar installed during the lowering process.

I got the Steeda UCA specific for lowered cars ( http://www.steeda.ca/ford%2Dmustang%...gt/555%2D4096/ ). I didn't think that I would need the adj one.

How do you like the ride on the BC? Messed around with the dampening at all yet?

Yea. Ball joints are coming later on. Couldn't take the sloppy suspension anymore. Not experiencing any suspension steering so didn't bother. Planning on getting Steeda rear swaybar and end links. Feels 10 times better. No wheel hop, nose dives, and reduced *** squats. Really happy with setup

I have to ask, what was your total on that pile of parts? 1500? 2000? You got some quality stuff there. Don't think I'd ever spring for coilovers on my daily driver (pun ).

BC actually cost about the same as a good spring and strut/shock combo. Had them on my last daily and loved them, but that was a very different car lol.

Sent from church, because I'm out of cheerios.

I had them on my old Mazda 3. And was happy them. They're abit on the stiff side. Right now I have the damping 5 from max hard. Stiff trying to find ideal comfort. Still waiting for suspension to fully settle in

A pretty penny. The coilovers was a 1/3 of the total price 2000-3000 (with tax). I've being collecting the parts piece by piece. I like the flexibility of the coilovers. I can raise them for winter and lower for summer. Plus it's already complete kit

Yeah, coilovers are typically much better than separate components, but cost 50% more. It's a tradeoff. I'm sure they are much harder than stock setup. I'm sure the thing'll be on rails once it gets dialed in.

Thx for the comments. When you do your suspension, it'll be a completely different animal

Awesome! Just received some of my Steeda stuff today, got a few more weeks until I can start the install.

Just a heads up, since balljoints attempt to fix the roll center from lowering, it'll also modify the bump steer. You may not have much now, but it could become worse with aftermarket ball joints, however you may be fine (I'm not an expert).

I can tell you my build list currently sits at $2,236.77 and that's with lowering springs not coil overs. That's also pre-alignment and other tools/services I'll have to pay for (I'm installing myself).

Steeda has some really great parts and easy step by step instructions (for first timers). I'm really happy with their product. I hear what your saying, but I think it also depends on how low you go. If and when it occurs I'll get the BMR front LCA w/ extended ball joint to correct it.

I installed everything myself at my shop and when my wheels come in, gonna get the alignment done. Just debating if I should do it myself or pay to get it done.
