The lowering springs are one of the most popular modifications in the industry and are what lowers your Mustang. The jounce bumpers work specifically with these springs and feature a unique, softer design. When compressed, the bumpers will release slower the stock so your chassis will have a less violent reaction when your Mustang bounces off of them. So not only will your 2015-2017 EcoBoost or GT Fastback enjoy a better handling performance, it will also be more stable and comfortable to drive.
The rear toe links will remove some of the compliance and allow for less deflection so you can have more confidence behind the wheel. The rear toe links kit will also prevent your tires from wearing improperly as well as unreliable traction while you hit the corners hard. The struts, shocks and sway bar in this pack will help you reach that optimal performance from your S550 that you are looking for. Ford Performance also makes sure you provide you with all of the pre-assembled hardware so you can fit everything onto your Mustang yourself and get it done correctly.
*Please reference a Ford service manual for installation information and the correct torque specifications.
Please Note: Your 2015-2017 Fastback EcoBoost or GT Mustang may require a new alignment after installation.

Will this work with 275/40r19? Also what are the spring rates? I have a 2015 base GT. Thanks for your time.
I have a 2017 with the HennesseyPerformance HPE750 but I also added the performance pack from the factory. There isn't a ton done to the suspension so would this set up help?
ARE THE SPRING PROGRESSIVE OR LINEAR?
I plan on buying this package in the near future and doing the install myself. I noticed in the install video you cut the brackets for the rear sway bar end links. Any way to get around that or do you sell these brackets pre cut?
I would like this on my 2016 GT but I am worried it will make it to stiff when I get back on the road.
Is this kit already on my 2016 GT with performance package from factory
I have a 2015 Mustang GT Premium package with 265 / 35 / 20 tire, rim configuration. Will this Ford Performance Track Handling Pack Assembled Fastback EcoBoost/GT 2015-2017 work?
Does this kit come with the replacement hardware to replace all of the factory one time use pieces?

Today going to show you how installed our Ford Performance lowering suspension kit.
You can start with the back or the rear suspension, it really doesn't matter. In our case, we're going to start with the front, and the first step is disconnect the caliper to get it out of the way.
Okay, with the caliper and rotor out of the way, now we're going to move onto the sway bar.
Now before we separate the spindle from the strut, we're going to go up into the engine bay, and remove two of the three nuts that hold the strut to the strut tower. We're going to remove two of the nuts, leave the third one hand tight.
Before we separate the spindle from the strut, you want to remove the ABS line. There's two clips that hold them on.
To separate the spindle from the strut, you have to remove the two large 24 millimeter nuts off the back. The bolts themselves are spline, so they're not going to move. Just loosen the nuts.
Once you get the nuts loose, you want to put them out to the end of the bolt, and then thread them back on, because you're going to use them to hammer through so you don't damage the bolt.
Now you'll just hammer on the nut side to move the spline bolt out.
The nice thing with the Ford kit is a fully assembled handling pack, which means the strut comes completely assembled and ready to drop in the car. Simply remove the original, and reinstall the Ford Performance piece.
It's always easier to start with the bottom bolt, then you can push the top one into place.
Now we have to start torqueing everything down. The top bolts where the studs go through the strut, 46 foot-pound on these, and I'll move down below and torque everything down there.
Next we're going to torque the nuts on the bolts that hold the spindle to the strut. These are going to 185 foot-pounds, so you may need some help getting them that tight.
Okay, with everything torqued there, now we can reinstall the rotor and the caliper. We're leaving the sway bar off for now, because we're actually going to replace the sway bar with a new piece from Ford Performance.
The caliper can be hard to get back on the rotor. To make it easier, put a lug nut in place to hold the rotor still, that way it's not moving around when you're trying to install the caliper.
Now we're going to repeat the process on the other side, now we're going to move on to the sway bar.
The Ford Performance strut assembly is mounted, and now we can move on to the front sway bar. To get to the bolts, you want to go from the engine bay. So first thing we're going to do is move our cold air kit, to give us more room.
The two bolts we'll need to remove the sway bar on this side, there's one here behind the hose, and one in the back.
Now we can move over to the passenger side. The same process over here on the other side. They're a little harder to get to, use some more extensions if you need to.
That was really the worst part of this installation, it's getting the sway bar out. You definitely want to get an extra set of hands, you just slowly have to work your way over, we'll come behind the strut, and we'll come out down here.
Now we're going to transfer both end links over to our new Ford Performance sway bar.
Now we'll put the new bar into place before we install everything. You want to make sure you have the orientation right. If the bar is sitting like this, the end links are going to point upward and inward.
With the bar in place, we can install the bushings and the brackets supplied by Ford Performance. The bushings come ready to go out of the box, no grease required, just put them on the bar and then install the bracket.
Put the bracket in place, and install the original hardware.
I'll do just a couple turns, just get them started. I'll leave everything loose until we get the other side done.
With the sway bar in place we can reinstall our cold air kit, and move back under the car.
The sway bar is going to have two openings for your factory end link. The further forward you go, the stiffer it's going to be. We're not looking for an extremely swift sway bar, we want use of our car, so we're going to go for the rear hold here.
All right, get both started, then tighten them down.
For the rear, we also have new shocks, new springs, and new sway bars. We're going to start by removing the shock by taking off this bracket here, take off these two bolts.
Now remove the shock, we're going to remove these two bottom bolts.
We're going to leave the shock out for now and work on the rear spring. To get the spring out, we've got to lower down the sub-frame. We're going to take this bolt out here so we'll have a little more room.
Now we can actually start lowering the sub-frame. The first thing I'm going to do is support it with a pole jack, then remove these two bolts here that locate this rear bracket.
With those out of the way, we can remove the two sub-frame bolts. There's one here, and one on the back.
Now we're going to lower down the sub-frame so we can get the spring out.
We're going to install the original isolator on our Ford Performance spring, and put it up into place.
You want to turn the rear one until it spins and locks into place.
While holding it, we'll jack it back up.
With the spring in place, you can reinstall the sub-frame bolts. Just get them both hand tight.
With everything still loose, we can install the front bolts as well.
Now we'll re-tighten the sub-frame bolts.
With everything in place, we want to torque the bolts that hold the sub-frame in to 129 foot-pound.
With the spring done, now we can install our new Ford Performance shock.
Now we'll install the top bolts.
Then re-install the brake bracket, and repeat the process on the other side.
With the rear suspension in place, now we can do the sway bar. The first step in installing a sway bar is to move the brake line bracket from the upper mouth.
Then do the same thing on the other side.
With the brake line disconnected, now we can disconnect the end links from the lower control arm.
With the end links disconnected now, the last step for removing the bar from the car is to remove the brackets.
The brackets and bolt, and now we can remove the sway bar.
With the sway bar off the car, now we're going to transfer both end links over to our new Ford Performance bar. Along with the brackets, the bar comes with new bushings so you don't have to transfer those over. But obviously you can see the huge difference in the Ford Performance bar verse the stock one.
With the end links off, now we can remove the brackets. Just simply slide them off, and get rid of our old sway bar.
I'm going to put a little bit of grease on just the top of these. The inside does not have to be greased. Then slide on the original bracket.
To be able to put this on to our new sway bar, it's going to go on the same way the original does. We're going to use the outer holes here. As you can see, that's not going to tighten down, so to be able to use this bracket, this edge here is going to have to be cut off.
I'm going to install the bracket back on the car, you're going to make sure the nut portion is on the inside, so when you put the screw in from the outside, it's going to hold properly.
Now we're ready to put our assembled Ford Performance sway bar back on the car.
I'm going to fish the bar up into place.
Now with the bar up into place, we'll reinstall using the original hardware.
With the bar bolted down, we're going to move the end links into place on both sides, and then tighten them down.
Now the last step is to reinstall the bracket for the brake line.
Now repeat the process on the other side, and your installation is finished.
