Roanstang's build

I am fairly new here, and just started my 2012 3.7 build. I am installing
BMR rear lower control arms & a J&M adjustable panhard bar. I will lower
the pony on sportlines and Eiback pro struts and shocks. Should I wait to
install the arms & panhard bar when I lower it or not? I'd like to see what
the bar & arms do for my suspension 1st.

Install them now. The PHR won't do too much for you right now, but the LCA sure will.

As for the springs, are you just choosing the Sportlines simply due to the way the car will sit? Are you wanting a handling car, or just good ride and traction?

Thanks for the reply Kelly, I want a corner carving pony. I have thought about just
rear springs by BMR! Can you elaborate on the handling I'd get with stock struts & springs
if I just added a lowered rear spring setup?

1 1/2" drop in rear

Update, I decided on Stack Racing rear springs 1 1/2 " drop which leveled Roanstang.
It handles much better now and no wheel-hop! Next is 3.55:1 gear & tuner. I'll post
pic's next week.
