Installed BMR adjustable UCA, LCA, loud noise/clunk on sharp turns

I've installed BMR adjustable UCA, non Adj LCA, relocation bracket, adj Panhand bar, Steeda ultra light springs, Koni yellow, MM caster Camber plates and adjusted the pinion angle to -2 degrees. The car runs great except when I take a sharp turn. On sharp turns I hear like a raspy noise/clunk coming from the back of the car. Today i jacked the car up and rechecked everything, retightened and the noise did not go away. Have anyone of you had experienced this issue? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Im in a similar boat actually just installed my eibach sportlines and bmr adj panhard bar. Im hearing a clunking noise as well. I had the shop doing the alignment tighten everything right after I did it. Somebody said that maybe the panhard bar didnt get greased up enough, so I may try that when this rain clears out.

Just a thought, but when placing my order on black Friday for the BMR UCA they have this note on their page.

UTCA027 - Upper Control Arms, DOM, On-car Adjustable, Polyurethane Bushings, 9 Inch Rear | 2005 - 2014 Mustang GT | Upper Control Arms | BMR Suspension - High Performance Suspension & Chassis

*BMR strongly recommends upgrading the stock Upper Control Arm Mount when utilizing an aftermarket Upper Arm on S197 Mustangs. Clunking noise may become present without an upgraded Upper Control Arm Mount. The correct part # for this application is UCM001.

Just a question, why did adjust the pinion angle to -2 degrees?
Not familiar with a two piece drive line hence the reason for asking.
Does the two piece driveline have a universal in the middle and one at the pinion? I didn't pay much attention to mine since I will be going with a one piece drive line.

It is what BMR recommends -2 to -3 degrees for manual transmission.

I would advise removing the LCA's and UCA and check the bushings this is what happened to one of mine.

LCA bushing problem - Mustang Evolution


Check and see if your bushings are deformed if so email FordTech@bmrsuspension.com

They will send you some new bushings.

I only replaced my panhard with a bmr adjustable and I am hearing the noise too. I wonder if I might be having the same issue on the panhard bar bushings. Definitely going to check into this too. Thanks!

I did remove the LCA and UCA, Bushings are good. The sound is like when metal slightly rubs against metal. The only thing I have yet to do is an alignment.

Just left my hook up at ford. Turns out my panhard bar bolts were loose still. He tightened up and noise is gone. Problem solved! I'm pretty sure that clunking is the most annoying sound in the world.

I was thinking the panhard bar. I got a full ford upgraded suspension on my old s197 and had the clunk and the common denominator is the panhard bar. Dealer looked at it numerous times and never figured it out.

The Steeda springs ultralites are rubbing against the metal well on one side. I took them out, double checked the proper installation and reinstalled but still rubbing on one side of the metal well. the part number is 555-8206. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Issue resolved. I have the UCA length to 10 inches and it was too long. To solve the issue I shortened (screwed in) the UCA to 9.5 inches and setup the pinion angle and now the springs are no rubbing against the metal's well.
