I have them on my 2011 GT Premium Non Brembo Mustang. They lowered the rear 3/4" which leveled the car up. I've had them on for several thousand miles. No issues at all. More than pleased with the product.

Was the right choice for me as I didn't want to lower front and just wanted to level car out.

I agree with this. 100% . If you want to track your car then maybe a different setup might work better. This was the best setup for me and the ride stayed the same. Note mine is Brembo ride.

Thanks for the input, think I'll give them a try. Worse come to worse I can put the stockers back in.
Thanks again

I have had them in my car for a good 17,000 miles. They leveled the ride, took 20 minutes to install and have been great. I do drag my car and they have worked pretty well there too.

There really was not that much to do. I removed the upper sway bar mounts and was able to lower to sway bar out of the way. I then unbolted the lower shock bolt and pulled out the spring. I did each side individually. Put the car on jack stands so the rear can swing freely, use a jack to lower and raise the rear. It is literally 4 bolts. I think it took longer to get the car up on the stands than it did to change the springs.

Got mine installed and adjusted my LCA relo-bracket to the 2nd hole and all I can say is WOW.

I may have had the bar set kind of low cause I really was not expecting to notice much of anything so I do have to say I am very pleasantly surprised. With that said my wow factor maybe more attributed to relocating my LCA but certainly the combination of the two was pretty darn impressive to me. The car is delivering the power to the ground much more effectively making these minor suspension mods feel like I made a performance mod.

Best Part is the ride quality stayed the same and absolutely no NVH.

Went to Brembo50.com reading spec section. Brembo cars don't have GT500 rear lower control arms there the same as other GT's. I put GT500 lower arms on they do have Higher Durometer Rubber than stock arms. Poeple cannot 100% go by part numbers
