Your 2011-2014 S197 Mustang is an incredibly capable vehicle when it comes to performance figures and uses. With very slight modification you can turn your car from a stock coupe or convertible into an impressive build for cruising, racing, and just about anything in between. For many people, this means modifying your Mustang’s suspension to sit lower to the ground for a more performance-oriented look. This is a great look on these S197 cars and dramatically changes both the look and the performance of the car as it corners. If you do this, you’re going to need to make sure you do it properly.
When lowering your S197 Mustang, you will need to ensure your car is properly centered in the rear end. With the solid rear end suspension, having your rear axle setup not properly centered can completely throw off your car’s balance and driving ability. To fix this issue, the use of a Panhard bar is the most successful way of keeping your rear axle centered. These bars are adjustable to keep your car’s rear centered at all times after lowering your car and changing your suspension. By doing this, you improve your car’s handling while keeping it properly aligned.
Here at Steeda, we have been modifying, upgrading, and racing the Mustang platform for over 30 years and in that time we have tested and learned firsthand what parts are beneficial in building the ultimate Mustang. We have seen time and time again that our Panhard bars provide the proper performance after lowering the 2011-2014 S197 Mustang by keeping the axle centered perfectly. This is a must-have upgrade that we have tested on our own vehicles as well as our racing vehicles to ensure the quality meets not only average requirements but that they reach the utmost quality we can make.
