Funny how that steeda panhard bar is the price of the same item on AM. Difference is steeda has it on sale for the normal price at AM.

Love the look! I really hate the tire gap on 5.0's, another top list mod for me!

I think 1.5 is the best drop for the 5.0 you keep 90% ride quality

I got an adjustable panhard. Took measurements, dropped the car, put the new panhard in at same length as stock bar, took measurements, all the same. No changes needed. Now I got a cool shiny go - fast part under there I can't see or enjoy unless I'm under the car.

We have our vendors adhere to MAP policy. The price should be similar to the sale price that Steeda is selling it for. We just had our 20% Labor Day sale which would drop the price across the board.

I have them paired with koni str.t struts/shocks. Not the best performing set up, but it's a huge step up from oem equipment, and it looks sharp.

About how much would it be to have a ford dealer install the K-Springs and adjustable panhard bar?

Yeah, I figured that would happen as well with such a drastic drop. Which is why I went with the koni's and GT500 strut mounts.

Yeah it didn't surprise me that it blew. Hopefully the konis get here soon. I have a meeting tonight. I am going to do the fronts at a later date. Would it be wrong to have yellows on the back and strt up front?

I'm no suspension expert, but my guess would be no. The yellows are only 2 way adjustable yeah? Why'd you go with that set up? Because of the national back order a few weeks ago?

The back order is the reason. The strt weren't available for at least 3 weeks. So I went yellows. They pretty expensive for the front so I may have to mismatch.

I don't see an issue with it. I ran stock shocks for a good month before the koni's came in and was fine. But I would think you'd be ok. Just not sure what you'd set them at. You'd have to experiment.

So I should wait until I get shocks and struts as well before I install the springs and panhard bar?

Put on the panhard rod, but me personally, I'd wait till you receive the struts/shocks. Otherwise, you will blow out the oem equipment quite fast. That is if this is a daily driver.

Labor costs will be cheaper if you get it done at the same time. The springs, shocks & struts can all be done at the same time.

Let me know if I can help assist with anything further?

The Steeda Sports or Ultra Lites would be a great addition to your car for both appearance & drivability.

Best Regards,

TJ

I also agree with TJ on cost savings. I did my suspension myself so I saved there. But yeah, I'd definitely wait till you gather it all together and do it once.

That's great. Yeah I'm pretty lucky myself to have the mechanical knowledge and a buddy with every tool known to man to do just about anything. I'm sure my buddy could take apart my 302 and put it back together in a days time if he felt like it lol.
