Nate, I got the "goods" from Zak at the party. I'm not scared to put holes in my car either...just as long as they are intentional and have something put in their place :D If this is as easy as you say it looks, I may follow suit before the warmer weather returns to make use of them this season.

Jeez John, I thought *I* didn't sleep. You've got some major Stang separation anxiety keeping you up...

For those who lowered their car, do you notice any new noises from the front suspension? Moans/Groans?

I hear it when I'm stopped and turning the wheel to back up at the house, or just turning (have the radio off thats why I can hear it) I'll have to put it on a lift and check it out.

well if ur turning the wheel i would think it either something rubbing with those sexy wheels or something with ur steering unit itself... make sure there is no rub wear or anything cuz ur car look real low

No it's not the tires rubbing, it's a Pro Kit. I think its in the rubber bushings and front sway bar ends.

its a known issue that the upper strut mounts arent great. the cheapest route is to upgrade to the gt500 mounts
