    Default 2012 GT Suspension Refresh

    Getting ready to finally do some suspension work.

    Looking at lowering springs and supporting components.

    I want a minimal drop and stiffening for my daily driver,

    So I was looking at the Ford Performance P-Springs, only a 1.0" drop.

    This was what I was planning on:

    Ford Performance Lowering Springs
    Ford Performance GT500 Strut Mounts
    Ford Performance Adjustable Pan-Hard Bar
    Ford Performance Jounce Bump kit
    Ford Performance Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets

    All In for like $700.

    I've already got Ford Perf. Boss 302S LCA's

    Do I IMMEDIATELY need the Panhard Bar and Relocation Brackets for only a 1.0" drop??

    Any inputs?
    Thanks!!

    If you can find OEM Boss 302 springs, those are 3/4" lower than GT springs and they are stiffer. With 3/4" - 1" drop, you shouldn't need an adjustable panhard bar.

    I have a set of relo brackets I can sell you, BMR brand new in box. Need to find them in my garage lol. I personally believe the panhard bar is a must tho. I have Steeda Sport springs and dampers and they're a pretty mild drop, still needed to be adjusted. Personally I love my suspension setup, literally does everything better than stock including ride.

    I needed an Adjustable Panhard bar on my car stock. Although it was slightly lowered in stock form the rearend was still off center.
