Not that I would be unhappy with frpp or steeda bars.
Yes you can install them on the 05-10 cars. The bars route the same. They should come, if you buy them used, with all of the mounting hardware (except maybe the bolts and nuts) to put them on your car and they should bolt right up.

I'll figure out shipping and stuff probably on Wednesday. At least you're almost right next door. What part of Utah do you live in? You know you should just drive down and we can just install it.
I live in Salt Lake City. To drive down would be a 6 hour drive. Considering that between two jobs i've worked 2 and a half month's with 3 days off (two requests and today, Memorial day) I don't think i'd ever get the time lol. My life as of late is pretty routine. I still have to install my Koni Yellow's, springs, and adj. phb. Can't do it today, all of the alignment places are closed. #Frustration lol.

Depending on the springs, you really don't need an alignment right away. You could easily drive on the suspension as it sits for a day or two and cause no damage. If they're Eibach Sportlines or something seriously low, I wouldn't drive any longer than a day without an alignment, but otherwise you'll be okay for a few days.

Didn't want to take the chance with brand new MT's. On a side note. Why aren't the rear BMR bars adjustable like their fronts?

That's interesting. I've always been told to do an alignment when lowering.

Unless you decide to go drift your car around a gravel parking lot it's going to make no difference. Tires last tens of thousands of miles. Two days with an alignment (that's likely still within factory spec anyways) is not going to damage your tires.

BMR bars? Huh?

I live on San Antonio Bay, all the businesses close on weekends down here, I do a lot of the work on my car myself. My uncle was a Chef in the U.S. Navy, ran several steak houses in the south. Taught me many marinade tricks and to find a great butcher. Enjoy the bars!

You really should get one done just to make sure you are still in spec. If you are installing a set of lowering springs with no adjustment for camber (say, GT500 plates) you still have your toe adjustment that needs to be looked at. Toe sweep on these cars can be pretty high depending on the drop and lots of toe out or toe in will destroy tires pretty quickly. It just depends on the situation though. I always err on the side of caution.

If you don't want to pay to have an alignment done you can always do it yourself with strings on jack stands.

I did a look around and read that the Boss bars are the biggest on a factory mustang, and Dave pericak said that the sway bars were so large, that the traction lok clutches wouldnt hold up under hard driving. Im paraphrasing of course.

Your thoughts? It could be good info on those who want to upgrade sway bars.

My thought is that Dave has a point. The more rear bar you run the larger the weight difference between the inside (lightest) and outside (heaviest) tires in a corner. If you are attempting to put power down this will wear the clutch packs quicker.

They don't last long to begin with. If possible, I opt for more spring rate over more bar rate for that reason. Bars are great for flatter cornering but they do so with some draw backs. I now use them solely for tuning handling bias.

Have to say, it's been an interesting change. From a thread on someone who tried to screw a member out of parts they bought to someone who is giving them away. Looks like good in this world exists

Well it's been shipped. Should be there Tuesday. Cost was $38 something. I PMed you the packing label. If you have trouble reading the tracking #, just let me know. The box and packing stuff was hanging out in the garage so I didn't have to buy anything. You can just PayPal me $40 if you want. [email protected].

Lol. Happy cruising. Just grease up the bushings and go. Don't think you need new ones. Those have just a few miles on them.
