Ground Control - 2011-2013 Mustang Complete Kit

This kit? It does mention Eibach makes some parts there, but overall this kit is much more worth while? Trying to decide if I should go to a solid driveshaft first. I think the V6 shaft issue was just 2011's and restricted to over 130MPH so I've stuck with stock with no vibration but I never go over 110MPH.

I've got nothing but time to wait though while I save up to comfortably buy things, so I'm open minded to advice I get on forums like this. The opposite of a fan boy.
That's the kit. Eibach makes the springs which they do make great springs, but their dampers are not as nice as the Koni's in the GC kit. If you can wait a little while, my GC kit will be for sale since I'm moving to a 2015 Mustang.

Considering that I've been inside and outside this suspension half a billion times, I know it pretty well! According to some my cars handle like dump trucks and have SPINE CRUSHING (TM) ride but everyone I've put in my car bar one person has said the car handles brilliantly, just needs more power, more brakes, and more grip. The one person who didn't like how the car handled, well, I had just made a major change to the car and hadn't got it sorted out yet.

Gotta know how it's doing! Any additional sounds coming from it?

Can the thrust angle be adjusting with this Watts link? I know usually guys do an adj. panhard to do that.

I got mine in today. Parts look nice a tough and should be a very sturdy assembly once installed. It's ashamed something that looks this good will be hidden underneath and not visible. While going through the parts I found a piece missing. Called and talked with Kelly and they are getting it to me as quick as they can. It's cool because it will be a little while until I can install. Car has to go to dealer for trans problem. Once I get it installed I'll give a report.

I've had a WL005 on my daily driver for the last ~month and a half. I've put about 2-3K miles on the car since installing. It's the poly/rod version and I can tell you that I'm VERY happy with the kit. No extra clicks, clunks, thumps, thuds, etc... over the BMR panhard and factory brace that I was using. The rear end is much more planted, the car responds better to steering input, and I'm able to take corners quicker with more confidence.

The ONLY downside to the poly/rod version is that the links aren't on car adjustable. The rod/rod version is easier to adjust. You shouldn't notice an appreciable difference in NVH between the two kits. When using rod ends, I usually recommend installing these boots on them:

Seals-it Rod End Dust Boots RERS3 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

They help keep the rod end from getting dirty, and they help diminish some of the extra noise that come with bearing pieces.

I've run the WL in a few different positions and I'm really happy with how I have it set up right now. First I ran it with the pivot in the hole second from the top. The was a lot more responsive, but I didn't like the amount of oversteer that I had. I was also running without a rear sway bar.

Right now I've got it on the second from the bottom with a Boss 302 sway bar and its much more stable feeling.

Let me know if you have any questions about the kits!
