Suspension Brand New Mustang Owner

Feb 26, 2018
Hey everyone I am new to this site and a new mustang owner. Bought the car about a month before the snow fell up here in Manitoba. The car is a 14 GT with 30k. It appears to have been lowered with SR springs. I think it’s about 1.5” lower. It also has what appears to be SR UCA and adjustable LCA,s with relocate brackets. The car has a couple of drive ability issues.

1. At higher speeds it is extremely darty. Front end seems to pull side to side quite aggressively. I know by the condition of the front tires the car was never aligned after being lowered

2. There is a lot of noise in the rear when going over bumps as well as squeaking From the rear as well. Upon investigation I found a bad bushing on the passanger LCA.

So plan is to replace the LCA,s with a BMR setup. But also curious if I should also be installing an adjustable pan hard bar. I basically want the car to drive as good or better than stock (a side from the harsher ride from lowering). So looking for recommendations from people who know best. Also what is the best way to determine/set pinion angle?

Thanks in advance to all that take the time to read and respond. All recommendations are very much appreciated

Lee; Maximum Motorsports is a much better choice than BMR, they were first to the market with performance suspensions for Mustangs. From your description of the handling whoever lowered the car did not install caster/camber plates, you change the geometry of the suspension when you lower the car and you must adjust the camber to stand the tire back up. Have the alignment set at 2 degrees tow out after you install caster camber plates, get them from MM. An upgraded panhard bar is a good idea, Here are the links to the MM parts.
