my own experience with GT500 Shocks & Struts (2010 parts) with Steeda Sport springs is that the car is too light for those dampers. I have a Pony Package V6 and it was fun to drive on the track, but the stiff dampers made the whole suspension rattle on less than perfect roads. I would expect about the same with SR springs. I am now running Kony Yellows on all four corners with Steeda Sport in the front and Route 66 55D rear springs and it is a lot more comfortable with a more controlled and sporty ride than stock.

My GT500 shocks and struts are for sale btw, but only locally

I run SR springs and the performance pack shocks and struts. Believe it or not, the car actually rides smoother, not as jarring as it was with the higher ride height and PP springs.
I also did not need an adjustable panhard bar, the front/back alignment, toe in and camber were all good, within spec.
Just keep in mind I have the full performance pack upgrade on my car, so the upgraded suspension components might have contributed to not needing things when lowered.

I installed the SR springs on my car this summer, with about 8K miles on it. Stayed with the stock struts/shocks. As SouthernCyclone noted, I think the ride is better than with the oem springs. Body control is much better - less nose dive with harder braking, less squat with hard acceleration and a less "hobby horse" feel on less than smooth roads. It's a firm but very smooth and controlled ride.

We've experienced similar results as SouthernCyclone and HowellDoug with our AM company cars and employee cars. I gotta say, the SR springs are one of the smoothest lowering springs I've experienced when paired with stock dampeners. I was quiet surprised the first time I drove our 2011 GT with the SR springs!

Handling is much improved over the stock springs, too. I wouldn't say it's as superior as a top notch suspension company like Steeda or Eibach, but they blow the stock springs out of the water!

Hope this feedback helps you out! Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
