GT Rear Sway Bar

Wanting to do some suspension this summer...i was gonna do the bullitt handling kit but ive heard u dont notice the lowering that much and i want to notice it (how much can u cut the springs? it says about 3/4 of an inch but i want like 1.5 inches but i didnt think u could cut it that much) so i think im gonna do lowering springs and a sway bar. how much would a used rear sway bar from a GT cost? and would it fit or do other things have to be done? is one from a GT just as good as an aftermarket one? or should i find a brand new one? thanks

Don't cut the springs. Pick up a set of v6 specific springs instead, if you want any kind of ride quality and better handling.

Steeda, Roush, Ford Racing, etc all have v6 specific springs.

The GT sway bar is fine. If you go higher, you'll have to match the front sway bar.
