Default Roush Lowering Springs for 2013 5.0

Has anyone tried these lowering springs for their 2013 Mustang 5.0? If so, were any other suspension components needed (panhard, struts, etc)? The ad reads like they were made to just pop in and go....

Description:
This Mustang Lowering Spring Kit (Extreme) works on 2005-2013 models. This particular spring kit lowers your vehicle 1" in the front and 1.25" in the rear.

In addition to the Mustang lowering springs, this kits includes a set of rear jounce bumpers. It's recommended that this suspension package be used with the stock Mustang and struts.

an adjustable panhard bar so you can re-center your rear axle

I know you didn't mention Steeda.

However, I did want to present you with our springs as a choice for you.

Our springs are made in the USA and feature a lifetime warranty. The Sport springs would be the comparable springs to those Roush ones. They offer a 1" (F) and 1.25" (R) drop and have a great ride quality (the best of any on the market).

With our springs no other upgrade is required, though we do recommend our heavy-duty upper strut mounts (to adjust camber after lowering) and adjustable panhard bar (to re-center the rear end after lowering).

It's just a really good spring and I think you would be satisfied with it.

Please let me know if I can help you with that.

Mods - is this allowed here? I hate it when companies, even if they are respected forum sponsors like Steeda, jump in on threads like this with a sales pitch.

OP - these are probably the same springs as the Eibach Pro Kit springs, which can be used with the stock shocks and struts. There was a run of Roush "dub edition" springs on Ebay recently that were just that, rebranded Eibachs.

Thanks for the info Brandon! Since I would be lowering just for looks (no track time), I was looking for a product that wouldn't require a lot of other components or expense to set up. That's why I was questioning Roush's claim that their spring would work with the stock set up. But my research finds that at a minimum I'll need a panhard with any lowering springs.

Hotchkis Sport Coil Springs for the 2011-2012 Mustang GT 5.0L offer a sleek lowered stance, dramatically improved handling and superior driver control thanks to a lower center of gravity. Our engineers poured over computer modeling and track testing data to create the ultimate Mustang spring that improves handling while offering a sporty yet comfortable ride. Hotchkis Performance Springs were developed as a complete front and rear balanced system, giving the Mustang GT an aggressive stance and balanced handling, especially when combined with Hotchkis Sport Sway Bars. Precision wound in the USA from the highest quality high tensile steel, they are finished in Hotchkis' durable gloss powder coat.

Features:

1.1” Lowered Front Stance, 1.6” Lowered rear Stance
Higher Performance Rates, Front 180lbs/in, Progressive Rear 125-180 lbs/in
Cold wound high tensile steel for strength.
Durable powder coat finish.

Our springs also work with stock shocks and struts. The Blue car pictured was on stock shocks and struts. It was also tracked regularly and daily driven 70 miles a day.



Here are a few pictures of our shop Mustang with our springs.





I am also offering special pricing for AFM members on these springs PM me for more info.

I have steeda sport springs takico d-specs and steeda hd mounts installed, this is an awesome set up and car sits perfect. i just measure my rear alignment and no need for an adj. pan-hard bar, i mean its spot on even on on both sides. Conclusion these springs don't lower the car enough to require a adj. pan-hard bar.

On some cars, yes, an adjustable panhard bar may not be required. It just depends on how far off you are from factory.

I had to use an adjustable phb with the steeda sports. But I was off center before lowering. By the way, I highly recommend the steedas. I had the Roush but never installed them because they (Roush) refused to tell me the spring rates. Steeda advertises their rates plus MADE IN AMERICA!
