I am going down to Late Model Resto tomorrow. Can't decide what to get.

These Front end appearance mods, that i really like the looks of and feel confident I can install myself.

Ford Mustang Boss Front Chin Spoiler Street Splitter (10-12) at LRS - Free Shipping!
2010-2012 Roush 7 Bar Upper Billet Grille, Black at LRS - Free Shipping!

Or these suspension parts, That I'm sure will need to be installed at a good shop.

BMR Mustang Upper & Lower Control Arm Kit (05-10) CAP002 at LRS - Free Shipping!
BMR Mustang Adjustable Panhard Bar (05-13) PHR006B at LRS - Free Shipping!

What woould you guys do? Get the appearance mods that you could install yourself right away? or get the suspension stuff that you wouldn't be able to have installed for a few months account the price of the install?

Car is my daily driver, I do not race it, just enjoy driving it and have fun everytime I get in it.

I think suspension. It's an appearance and handling mod all in one. I've never done it but most people say even if you don't know much about cars you can still do the suspension mods on your own.

I'd recommend getting new shocks/struts as well because the stock ones suck for lowering and will need to be replaced soon after anyway.

I did those appearance mods, and I love it, but honestly if you want your car to drive better I would do the suspension.

I sort of regret going the route I did as I would have done things differently if I had the knowledge I did now.

plus, I am sick of looking at my car and thinking 4X4 jeep from how high it sits.

Well, just got back from the shop that wiill install suspension, this is the same shop that installed my headers, Great guys. Their shop is alway full of Mustangs.

He said since i dont track or race, i would be waisting money on UCA/LCA and panhard. Said all i need for 1 in drop is springs, but recommends the shocks/struts also.
so here is what i am thinking now...
Ford Mustang GT Lowering Spring Kit (05-13) Coupe M-5300-A at LRS - Free Shipping!

Eibach Mustang Pro-Damper Kit (05-13) 35101.840 at LRS - Free Shipping!

Yeah UCA, LCA and relo brackets are a must. Pan hard bar would be good while your at it.

Will help eliminate wheel hop and keep your tires planted.

Also if you drop but don't do LCA and relo brackets from what I remember your LCA brackets will aim down and not give you as good of traction.

Personally I am doing all white line products for LCA, UCA, relo brackets and pan hard bar come spring time before i do shocks and struts.

Sick of touching the gas and breaking out the back end.

your rear end will b off center when u drop your car, even an inch, i cant believe the shop said it wasnt necessary for a panhard bar? just knowing the tire is sticking out one side more than the other would be worth the money to fix it?

I could personally recommend the tokico d spec on the steeda website, they are adjustable and just $550. Same as the frpp but different sticker.

Are u getting the roush side and rear side splitters? I just installed it yesterday and they look sick with the roush front splitter.
It makes the car seem about an inch lower.
