Suspension setup questions

Hey all, this is what is in my cart at AmericanMuscle right now.

Koni STR.T shocks and struts
Eibach camber bolts
SR double adjustable panhard bar
BMR non adjustable UCA
Eibach pro kit
SR rear lower control arms

I shouldn't need camber plates, I don't track this car. I just cruise around and wax the occasional camaro. Does this look like enough? or am I forgetting anything major?

Thanks for the help

Suspension setup questions

If get the adjustable upper control arm. When you lower the car it changes the pinion angle. This can cause vibrations and still cause you some issues.

You might also want the lower arm relo brackets.

Forget about the "camber bolt", you don't need it and they are not safe.
I've helped lower 5 late model Mustangs along with my own and non of them needed to have anything done. How do I know, all of the owners of the other lowered Mustangs had their alignment checked, as did I. The camber bolt is a total waste of time/money.
If you use the BMR UPC, also use the BMR LCA..........just doesn't make any sense to mix and match different brands.......like putting Champion spark plugs on one bank of the motor and Autolite on the other.
If you would need to adjust your pinion angle with non-adjustable LCA's and non-adjustable UPC your are screwed. Get the adjustable UPC and if you have no need to change the pinion angle set it at 0. If you have LCA's you should get an UPC to make everything solid............the stock UPC is junk and helps remote wheel hop.....IMHO

I agree with Olerodder, the adjustable camber bolts are not worth it. I lowered my 14GT with the Steeda sport springs and it is fine. But remember when changing the front springs out, the perch is made for one-time use and the little bearings are easily lost. Then the front end will make an awful racket as the springs compress. Trust me as I am dealing with that. I will end up buying the Steeda stainless adjustable mounts when I replace my struts in the next year. I also put in the Steeda no seat delete X brace in the trunk. Very highly recommended, tightens up the back end. Tracks much better now. Just my 02ยข

Koni STR.T shocks and struts- They're okay
Eibach camber bolts- Not necessary
SR double adjustable panhard bar- BMR is a better choice
BMR non adjustable UCA- You need an adjustable and a mount
Eibach pro kit-Meh
SR rear lower control arms- BMR makes a better product

I shouldn't need camber plates, I don't track this car. I just cruise around and wax the occasional camaro. Does this look like enough? or am I forgetting anything major?

Soooo....this is something I've been confused about.

Are LCA relocation brackets necessary if you have adjustable UCA's?

What makes the adjustable UCA a necessity grabber? Curious to hear this. I have a fixed BMR w/bracket. Is it strictly for pinion angle and drive shaft clearance? And if so, the fixed one makes it impossible to install a 1 piece DS?

UCA and bracket will help with wheel hop and the adjustable UCA will set the pinion angle not impossible to have one piece DS but to make everything set right should have one for sure!!!!

Ahhhh ok. I'll have to check my pinion angle at some point. There's this cool app by Tremec that allows you to do so.

When you lower the car the pinion angle will be off if you go 1 in. it still maybe close but I think it will be more then 2 degrees. Kelly at BMR is there Mustang guru down there.

Also it will still help the wheel hop as its stronger and the bushings have less give. You just can't dial it in to get the best results. But there are some people who don't want to mess with an adjustment so they just get the non adjustable

Having the adjustable bracket doesn't help you? Maybe you should check the pinion angle you have now and mess with the position it's mounted?

I'm not sure, I know I'm in the correct hole for a lowered vehicle. Wheel hop was completely eliminated with it combined with the LCA's. I need to check the angle.

I hope this isn't hijacking but the OP might find this useful as well. 2 questions. With 2014 lowered, BMR adj UCA, but no mount, would that give u a clunk? whats clunking? And LCA reloc bracket, why wouldn't you want to use the bottom hole for more anti-squat?

Hey man, we all have different priorities. I didn't buy the adjustable for my needs, but also because of cost. We all cut corners. I'm thinking about getting one though if my pinion angle is fubar'd. Keep me posted as to your findings. I'm curious to see what is causing this noise. Is it noticeable in cabin? Can you video?
