I just ordered some eibach lowering springs they are the sportlines and are supposed to drop 1.6inch in the front and 2.0 inch in the back... I also bought camber bolts to reduce the negative camber... I do not however have a pan-hard bar...my question is if anyone knows if this will mess up my car in any way...any info about this or the lowering process at all is helpful... thanks guys!

With a drop that low, you will almost certainly need a panhard bar to centre your rear end. If you drop the car without a panhard, you will notice the rear axle has shifted closer to the fender on one side of the car which can cause problems down the road. Another thing to consider would be an adjustable upper control arm to fix the pinion angle. One of the reasons I haven't lowered my car yet is that there are so many different add on pieces to make sure everything works properly lol

I agree 100% with a drop tht low you will have to get the adjustable upper control arm and for a panhard. I have the pro kit and It was a noticeable thing with the tires, I actually found better suspension handling with the adjust panhard because it squares off your rear end. Truth be told there more to leering your car then just the $200 springs haha, if your gonna do it, do it right, you'll be glad you did

I had my Eibach put on by a local shop that sells nd installs Mustang Parts. we checked after the install. It was out less than a 1/32". It iwas Not needed for mine. But every car is different so I've been told.

To answer your question directly, NO, it will not hurt the car to drive it for a month without the adjustable panhard bar. My friend has been driving his S197 on Sportlines for over a year with no adjustable panhard bar, and it hasn't damaged anything. But you can plainly see that the driver's side tire is sticking out past the fender.

I installed a UPR adjustable panhard bar with my Eibach springs and it did the trick.

be patient and do it all at once. at least the phb. I know you think you want the springs on now, but a. it'll save you money going up on the jack once instead of twice , plus having to take the car in twice. also, if you out the springs on now and then center with phb later imho its not like making your car look a little better now, then even better later. its more like having your car look stock now. then dropping it without centering and having to drive around for a month with it looking and felling off, then getting it corrected.
