Just got my Eibach pro kit springs delivered today and I'm hoping to install them within the next week or 2. Anything special I should look out for when installing?

you need an adjustable panhard or your rear will most likely be off center a little.

I would highly recommend a adj panhard bar if you dont your rear end will sit futher to the left side of the car. I dont know why they dont just include it with the kit.

You need a couple of things the adjustable panhard bar is minimum extra parts to make it work.

If you lower the car you have to get a panhard bar or you rear will shift to the left.

You really should get following to lower a Mustang with no problems:
Lowering springs, Adjustable panhard bar, control arm relocation brackets, front camber bolts, and upper strut mounts.

Yeah, BMR. I suggest that you return the springs and buy BMRs lowering kit. It is about $600.

I think the kit is $500, but you need everything in it.

the pro kit is only lowering your car 1.2 in the front and 1.4 in the rear. You dont have to do anything else if you dont want to. But if you got the money than go ahead and do the above mention stuff. Its only at 2 inches that you really need to relocate the rear. ford will tell you that as well.

Dont go road racing without changing your shocks with those new springs. you hit a big dip at 80 or 90 one day and you will know what i mean.

I am not sure about the springs you got but I have the Steeda Ultralites and I didn't need an adjustable panhard bar. I think that is only needed on some cars depending on how far you are lowering it. My car also aligned back to spec without any camber plates or any other modifications.

You will need a spring compressor for the front, I don't know what the weight of the car has to do with it. :confused:

Plenty of people have changed the front springs without using a spring compressor. I've talked to several people who've done it, watched them do it on "Horsepower TV" or one of my other Saturday-morning favorites, and I read a "how-to" in one of my Mustang mags a few months back.

I won't pretend to be an expert and give you step-by-step instructions (although I'm sure I know how to do it - I just haven't done it myself and am not familiar with any specific details that might be important). But I'm sure someone who's done it before will chime in soon.

its easy to do without a spring compressor heres how. if you place jackstands under the frame of the car you can use a floor jack to raise the a-arms in turn compressing the spring. than you can undo the upper mounts and slowly lower the a arm back down, than just do the oposite to raise it back into place. thats what the weight of the car has to do with it. :D
