Ford Racing Sway Bars & Panhard Bar Installed - Help!

So I've been piece together the Ford Racing Adjustable Handling Pack on my Bullitt and the final two pieces were the adjustable sway bars and adjustable panhard bar. I had a buddy of mine help me install them, and I have to say, I'm quite impressed with how flat the car corners, now. I also like that my axle is no longer off-center, which always bugged me.

I have noticed, however, that there is often a slight "shudder" coming from somewhere in the rear suspension that only happens at low speed, mostly when I leave a stop light driving at a normal pace. It's like there is a slight vibration in the rear end for a moment, and then as I pick up speed, it goes away. I will have my buddy take a look at it, but can any of you think of what it might be?

I had also firmed up the shocks from full soft, to about the middle of the range, as well, so could that play into this vibration somehow?

Firming things up with stiffer bushings, etc. , you could start to feel vibrations which are normally damped.

Lowered? Stock or aftermarket driveshaft?

The vibration seems to have worked its out. I haven't noticed it the last few times I've driven.

Yes, Ron, it is lowered, the Ford Racing 1" springs, but driveshaft is stock.

Good! Hopefully it will stay that way.

good, you really shouldn't get added vibration from lowering and the mods you did, stiffer increases more road feel. i.e., feel more bumps in the road, road surface, etc. and more nvh (noise) from the harder bushings but not a vibration. vibrations from back there could come from tires, ds, pinion angle or if something was off in adjustment throwing everything else off. sounds like it straightened itself out...at least hopefully.

It definitely seems to have worked itself out. The car feels great, again, now. (knock on wood).

Do the endlinks have grease fittings? On one of my previous cars with upgraded sway/endlinks, I would get a pretty good clicking sound going around corners if they needed to be lubed, usually once a year.

It sounds like you have the P springs. I think of the lowering springs that they are quite good.

Did you add the adjustable end links for the front sway bar?

I congratulate you on your mods. Sounds like you are pleased!
