Lowering a 2005 Mustang GT. What do I need?

I am going to buy an Eibach Pro-Kit for my '05 GT and had a few questions about lowering. I know I will need an alignment for sure but will I absolutely need caster/camber plates? Also, what is the panhard bar, and will I need it for sure also?

I have the 18"x8.5" FMS Chrome Bullitts and will be putting 255/50/18s up front and 285/50/18s out back.

Thanks.

Hunter

You will likely need some camber adjustment but each car is different. Plates give the best adjustment but camber bolts (~$40) will also work. Lowering will also likely throw off the axle's center making the adjustable panhard bar necessary.

Where can I get camber bolts and an adjustable panhard bar for a decent price?

You can also get camber bolts at Tire Rack.
