Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is our handling pack Bolt-On Build-Up for all 2011 and Newer Mustang GTs. These new Coyote Mustangs are a far cry from previous generations in many ways, but specifically in regards to both performance and handling. In fact, several reputable automobile publications have tested these cars to be on-pace with other European and Japanese sports cars nearly twice the price of the Mustang. Not too shabby for a live, actual, car huh? So why mess with the handling then? Well, because we can make it better, and because Ford already gave us such a great platform to start with, it shouldn't take much to get our car to the next level. So with that said, let's check out the three parts in our handling pack. First up, we installed Eibach's Anti-Roll Sway Bar Kit. Now again, from the factory, our GT came with a pretty decent setup, but was more of a balance of comfort and handling performance. This kit from Eibach upgrades our factory 24mm rear bar to a larger 25mm bar, and it also upgrades the front 34.5mm bar to a 3-way adjustable 36mm bar. The adjustability of that front bar is going to really allow the driver to dial in their optimal settings, to better fit their driving style. Now finally, these sway bars are going to be vital in reducing any excess body roll the car possesses in stock form, which will really give the driver much more confidence on the road, and in turns. To further help strengthen our chassis we installed this SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace. Now we enjoy using this part in a number of our builds for a number of reasons. It's easy to install, it looks great under the hood, and it's going to further help reduce our suspension flex. It's a win-win mod that just so happens to be easy on your wallet. Finally, we throw on a set of SR Performance Lowering Springs which, as you might have guessed, lowered our Coyote an inch and a half in all four corners. Now the lower center of gravity and stiffer spring rates, will no doubt improve our handling, and when paired with Eibach's Anti-Roll Sway-Bar kit, should make for a firmer, sportier ride without being uncomfortable or offensive. Now as you can see, lowering our car certainly improved our stance as well, by getting rid of that ugly wheel gap. We kept our build simple, by using only three basic parts that should take our already great handling Coyote to the next level. With that said, let's get our GT out of the shop, and see if we succeeded. Alright, so we're out on the road in our 2011 GT handling pack installed of course, and already the car feels great. Feels much firmer than before but, like I said, not in an offensive way, it's not uncomfortable, it just feels more sporty now. Things feel a lot tighter, the car overall feels more solid, just cruising down the road. Even just a couple short jerks of the wheel here, I mean, lane changes at high speeds now are definitely going to be improved but, let's put these things to the test, we've got a hard left-hander coming up, let's see how she does. A little bit of brake-dive coming into the turn. Point it, stomp on it, and it goes. Man, the body rolls definitely been reduced thanks to those Eibach Sway-Bars, front end feels a little tighter as well thanks to that SR Performance Strut Tower Brace, and again, the springs just make the car feel more nimble. I mean, let's face it, it's a big car, big-right hand car coming up. Boom, no problem whatsoever. And as I was saying, it's a big car, man, it's a heavy car, but it doesn't feel like it's lumbering through the turns anymore. It actually feels a lot lighter, and a lot more nimble than it probably actually is. Overall, I'd say job well done with us here in our handling pack. So that wraps it up. Be sure to check out some of our other Bolt-On Build-Ups for the 2011 and newer GT, where we make our car look a little better, and really crank up the performance.

Overall great buy and significant change. Love the red and somewhat easy install. The last step in rear install is not an easy task. As a self taught mechanic this step should be designed for an easy tightening of bolts and nuts without being a contortionist under the car. I suggest you read instructions before purchasing. Don't let this discourage your purchase. Its a great upgrade but be prepared for the task.Helpful (0)

So, I just did a huge suspension upgrade which includes lowering and decided to add the sway bars. After a few spirited test drives I was impressed. Well worth the cash.Helpful (4)

I needed to improve my handling, since the stock bars are really "loose". After installing them, I could instantly feel a difference. (I also installed the Pedders coilover kit at the same time) My car does not buck under hard throttling and does not feel like I'm going to scrape my front bumper when I'm braking. Definitely got rid of the body roll which I'm happy with. I started with the middle hole in the front, and I feel like it's perfect. As far as the installation goes, it was pretty straight forward. The only thing that took extra time was removing the metal brace in the front. I had to remove that in order to install, but it was not that bad. If you have a jack and some stands with basic knowledge on your car, this should be no problem to install. I would definitely recommend this kit if you're looking to beef up your suspension and save a little bit of money. Still kind of pricey, but worth it. Mod on!Helpful (6)

No More Body Roll
I bought this product to help stabilize my car when I take corners. I noticed the product working the instant I installed it and took it back on the road. My setting is set to medium which has a sport feel to it, but it is still a daily driver. I used to feel my car raise when I would take corners, but now its just a smooth transition and I can corner even harder.Helpful (7)

Eibach Anti-Roll Bars
These were added after Eibach springs, shocks, struts. camber bolts, BMR panhard bar, and FRPP tower brace. The result is amazing. My '13 stays flat thru curves, almost "glued" to the road. Stance is fantastic. No more "4x4" spacing over back tire. Really happy with entire package. Took about 2 1/2 hours to install sway bars.Helpful (7)

Excellent product my car handling improved considerably and controlled the leaning and bdy roll.Helpful (7)
stiffness compared to adjustable bars how much softer/stiffer are these compared to eibach's adjustable sway bars?
The front sway bar only is adjustable. First hole from the end is for the softer ride. The middle hole is for the best of both worlds performance and softness. The last hole is for extreme driving "Dry race track" conditions and not recommended for wet slick roads. As for non-adjustable sway bars offers the middle hole only performance.
For clarity, do these come with lower control arms for the rear sway bar? Thanks.
These will not contain lower control arms for the rear sway bar.
Does anyone know if the rear bar will fit the 14 GT convertible, and if not who has a rear bar that will fit. Thanks for the info.
The Eibach Anti-Roll Front and Rear Sway Bars are compatible with Convertible Mustangs.
Would it be bad to install this w/o other suspension upgrades? I have a stock 2014 premium v6 without performance package. So I was wondering if I install this for better handling without other suspension upgrades would that be bad?
No, It wouldn't be bad. However, Upgrading the rest of your suspension will make for even better handling. Get this, Then as you can, Begin upgrading the rest.
