Eibach pro kit lowering Springs

I have an 2011 GTCS Conv. Does anyone know how much labor time/charges would run for install. I've been told I have to get an alignment also, that's gonna run $69.95. I'm on a budget, any help would be great. Thanks, rrrrr n SC.

Told you $500-600 for installing the entire pro system kit. But to get a real number call shops around your area. Every place is different. You might be charged less or more depending on what shop and what city.

$200-300 for just the springs

Not needed on a Pro Kit drop. Really comes into necessity when you do a 2" and/or one piece drive shaft. Until then you can use a non adjustable UCA which is totally useless if you're planning one a driveshaft.

Needed? That's a matter of opinion. A good idea? Absolutely.

Won't argue with you here lol but with the OP's $1000 budget it might be out of his price range after parts and labor for springs and UCA. Plus adjustable panhard.

Unless he starts learning to wrench things himself lol

Might be best to save up another $1000 to get a job done better here...

Well I needed it. Because I didn't wanna ruin my car. That's up to the op if he thinks that's important enough
To spend a little more money to have the car the way it should be. Not half *** put together.

Yeah u gotta watch some places. I listened to the people on here that know stuff. And had a good experience. I didn't "just slap springs on it and be done" cause joe blow said that's all I needed. I asked questions like this and did research to learn from others. Which products to buy and which not to buy. Ended up with the eibach pro kit. BMR lower control arms. BMR lower control arm relocation brackets. BMR upper control arm and mounting bracket. Eibach camber
Bolts. I love the setup other than I need to grease my upper a little more because it has a squeak to it. The car was way out of alignment when I took it in. Now it's perfect. The upper control arm was adjusted to make my pinion angle to within spec again so no more vibration. Yeah u can just run springs only. But your only gonna have a ****ty car because u don't know what it's like to have one set up the way it should be.

I ran a whole year on stock UCA. With 2" drop and stock driveshaft before the UCA upgrade. Just changed out the axle gears and everything was in order.

I put pro kit springs on my former 06 with nothing else,
wore out the inside tread of the front tires in 6 months.
added eibach camber bolts and got an alignment and it was back
to perfect specs. Hope to have the same luck with my 14.

Good luck with that, Blackie....it might take me a year but I'm gonna wait and get a handling pack and do it all at one time. I talked with a local mustang shop and they basically told me what these guys said. I can't pull on wrenches anymore but i found some locals who love mustangs as much I and it's gonna be fun to see what happens. It's already been a strange trip and looking ford too see where it goes. L8R, rrrrr n SC

I just put this kit on my 2012 GT/CS and it ran about $300 for install including the alignment. HUGE difference in my opinion, and it's not too low. Good luck, you'll enjoy driving it even more after you drop it a bit.
