Yes, J&M makes great suspension parts. If I didn't end up with the parts I have now I would of went with some of J&M's parts. They have a great bushing design.

Used the MM code to get it down to $96 from $102 on sale. Anyone have an experience with J&M? My suspension upgrade program is on track, also waiting at home to install in December is some Koni shocks/struts.

I will also buy the UM upper and lower adjustable control arms from Strano.
J&M Mustang Adjustable Panhard Rod (2005+) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!
I bought the same one for the same price about 5 minutes after I got the email about the sale lol. Kudos to us both!

- Edit - Already sitting on the Koni shocks/struts in the living room, got the panhard on its way, can't wait to order the springs and get this thing down.

If youre being sarcastic, that 6% is on top of their sale prices, so it ends up being a good deal.

Well, I hear conflicting things about that. Sam Strano told me its not necessary, but many have said it is.

Its not bad with the factory upper arm because the bushing is soft but when you go to a poly bushing there not much give there and the bolt slops back and forth on the stock mount because the hole is bigger than the bolt (have a look whe you get it apart its actually a fair bit bigger). Every time you get on or off the gas it clunks. Just a suggestion:)

I think thats a half ass way of doing it to be honest. That just my opnion and a lot of people still say the washers wear over time.

I disagree. We have been using stepped washers for quite some time in heavy duty machinery that sees forces much greater than anything that is going to be exerted in our cars. I doubt that any force that a Mustang sees is going to cause a solid stock of aluminum to wear out especially considering the point of it is to remove movement. So how does it wear out? I have never ever heard that. Where did you hear that?

I have read it on different mustang fourms, as i said befor that my opnion on it. I only looked at the umi ones when i bought my mount and I did't like the idea and the mount was only 100 bucks so i thought it was a better buy.
