Has anyone installed these without the upper strut mounts that AM says you need?

(Look at the "application" portion in the description)
SR Performance Mustang Lowering Springs - Coupe (05-13 GT & V6) - Free Shipping!
This is a very commonly asked questions. I've seen countless people install these Springs without upgrading the Strut mount or Dampers. However, we've found that the GT500 Strut Mounts and Dampers make this install a lot easier then if you use the stock Mounts.

I hope this helps! Give my CS team a call if you have any further questions. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

Just make sure to order some camber bolts or else the inside of your tire will wear really fast. They are only like 10 bucks

How do the camber bolts work? Sounds like I'm going to need an alignment too...

If you get the camber bolts it keeps your front wheels straight up. When you lower it the wheels automatically camber and this will fix it and you won't have to get an alignment

Not at all. Straight as an arrow. I am still getting it aligned since its the small amount of wear on the tire you dont notice. I was honestly expecting a little pull, but non that is noticeable. I also just ordered an adjustable panhard bar that I am going to put on this weekend just to top it off.

But will getting it aligned help, I didn't know that would adjust camber. I need to get one of those panhard bars and the lower control arms to top it off

It should adjust camber and the toe to make sure that the front tires are in a straight line. Buying camber kits will definitely help in the long run, but I honestly dont have the money for them haha. If you already bought them, then you made a good choice. Alignment is just a cheap fix.
