Question Lowering Springs

New to the forum since purchasing a 2014 GT on 11/21/14. Any recommendations on lowering springs? I've also heard that when you lower the car it's advisable to install the pan-hard bar to stop deflection of the rear axle. Your thoughts appreciated.

Lowering Springs

Your correct. Panhard bar is a must. I got SR. lowering Springs with adjustable steeda Panhard bar on stock springs and struts for about 15k miles now. Im doing just fine. Also got full BMR suspension about a few weeks ago and it feels amazing! No wheel hop 😉😉😍😍Click image for larger version

I went with H&R Super Sports. They are advertised at 1.7fr and 2.4rear drop but it is not that drastic of a drop. Perfectly level at 1.5 and 2.0. I can tell you not to buy a Hotchkis panhard bar. Yes its adjustable but you have to take everything apart to adjust it, a total pain in the ***. I would replace your shocks/struts, the ride is so much better. You can also do GT500 mounts or reuse your factory mounts, you might get lucky and not hear any noise after awhile.

Lowering Springs

how much do you think new shocks/struts would be? I would want to upgrade but the ride for now is manageable.

My 14 is a TrakPak car and was pretty firm to begin with. I hated the Pirelli's. I went with the Eibach Sportline, I've used them before on older Mustangs (97) and they are advertised at 1.3" in front and 2.0" in the rear. I really don't notice any difference in the ride from stock, just lower.
I also went with an adjustable Whiteline panhard bar. I'll be installing the Whiteline upper and lower control arms at a later date only because I want to autocross the car and use it on some open track days here in Oregon and Washington.

Trevor is that you? Lol

Hey bro please list out the price for each of the parts that you put on. I tried searching online for the prices but both my computer and iPhone just laughs at me every time I pull up Google/Yahoo and then it shocks my fingers when I hit the search button. Then it laughs at me again and shows a smiley face on the screen.

Damnit!!! It just shocked me again when I tried searching.

BMR LCA are $144 for non adjustable.

BMR uca is $185 for the adjustable.

BMR adjustable panhard is $145.

BMR relocation brackets for the LCA are $125, the UCA relo bracket is $165.

BMR lowering springs are $250.

Of course there are ways of getting them cheaper than this though.
