2007 GT - Brakes and rear sway questions

Recwently I've noticed the rear of my GT almost like minor "fish-tailing" when you wouldn't think it would. Also, i've been
coming to a fairly quick stop, like 50-0 at a stop sign in about a 40-50 yard distance and it sounded like it does when traction-control kicks in. Anyone experienced these type of problems and any suggestions on how to prevent this from occuring? Thanks.

for the "fish-tailing"...
The stock bushing in things like the lower control arms and the panhard bar are really pretty soft and mushy... makes for a nice comfortable ride.. but i think it tends to give the rear a bit of a "wiggle" when cornering... I replaced the LCA and panhard bar with an aftermarkets with nice firm poly bushings. Made a huge difference! No more wiggle...
as for braking...???? ABS????

My 99 supposedly has poly bushings from the factory. Did they go back to black rubber in the new ones??

I'll have the bushings. The grinding was the ABS, just sounded odd first couple of times I guess.
I spoke to the dealer about a sway bar and he said I could go that route, but it would ride rougher.
Is the rougher ride worth the tradeoff of less sway? Noticeable less sway?

Two things, 1. You replied to me, I have a 2000 Mustang. The 05 and up Stangs have an all new chassis. I don't know if an anti-sway bar would do you any good. 2. You top posted, most people read from top to bottom.

See comments at bottom

I don't know about "most people" but for most of these threads top posting is a lot less trouble. Instead of having to page down two or three times to get to the new comments it's right at the top.

Post how ever you want, I see most of yours are bottom post. But to read what the top poster is replying to, do you not have to scroll down, oh weak fingered one?

But most people who are even interested have already read all the earlier messages and don't need to read all the old stuff. So if it's top posted then when you open the next message, BOOM, the stuff you want to read is right there. The reason top posting creates a problem has nothing to do with it being top posted, its simply the inconsistency of a long thread where some of the replies are top posted and some are bottom posted. If the first reply was top posted then all the rest should also be top posted.Then there would be no problem. The small percentage of people who need to read the old material could go to the bottom and page up to read things. The vast majority would just read the new material at the top and move on.
I usually bottom post if that's what people are doing. But if the first message is short and I'm the first person to reply I may just top post. While the bottom posters like to act like they are in the right they are often just as much in the wrong as far as actually following netequite because they almost NEVER trim the messages and the same "standard" that suggests people bottom post ALSO says to TRIM the unneeded material. There's plenty of blame to go around.

I was just replying to the op as tactfully as I saw fit. It's common practice to bottom post and it's common sense, as how most people think. But you don't know about "most people".

Well, that's the problem. There isn't any universal agreement. If it was as clear cut an advantage to bottom post then no one would be top posting. And as I already said, I do not see bottom posting as "common sense", to me the common sense is to top post since it takes care of the needs of the vast majority of people who are actively following the thread. Bottom posting caters to the needs of the small minority who's memory fails them between reading message 9 and message 10. I understand the logic you are presenting but I simply thing my logic is more logical. I have no expectation any minds will be changed.

Wrong. Because I have to skim your top post, then scroll down anyway to see the context of what you replied to, then back up. Possibly more than once if the OP was long. No excuse because you can set Agent just like Thunderbird to start at the bottom so if you're lazy, you don't have to scroll to start typing.

Most of the time when I'm reading a thread it's not for the first time. So I already know the context. I can't imagine that the same is not true for you. For example, between one day and the next a thread may have 12 new messages in it. So you read 12 messages one right after the other (and maybe add one or two replies) and the context is in your head already, you don't need to re-read each of the 12 messages before moving on to the next one. Which is why if everyone top posted exclusively things would be so much easier. The new material in each of those 12 messages would be right there at the top. There are only a very few people who come along late in the thread and need to immerse themselves in the context and that's easy enough to do whether they start at the bottom and read up or start at the top and read down in message 11. The real problem is inconsistency - mixing of top and bottom posting. That's why even though I believe top posting is actually superior I usually bottom post if the thread has already been started with bottom posting. But realistically, the difference in difficulty of reading a message no matter whether it's top or bottom posted is trivial. It's hardly worth the emotional investment some people make in it. It's like the MAC vs PC thing.

I think the stock GT sway bars are good enough... what you may want to look into is a set of (lowering) springs. Not only will they give your car a better stance, it should help with the handling! There are a variety of springs to choose from... I wasn't looking for much of a drop so I went with some H&R sport springs for a 3/4 inch drop... big improvement in both looks and HANDLING!!
