El Centro is 45 min from me but then again, I am in the middle of nowhere haha.

Nice Mods man. The sway bar is easy to install. The gas tank is the biggest pain but with the right wrench, its easy. Make sure you pull it apart first, it'll make things waaay easier.

Pretty much. You might not want to completely tighten the bar to the axle until the end, because you have to adjust it a little. Part of it will sit on a higher piece of the axle. I have yet to fix mine, but you will notice that it isn't perfectly aligned. Works fine tho, but I still want to fix it.

It might depend, but mine has to be adjusted a bit. You can see the tension that it creates on the end links right now. It's functional, but to remove that tension/angle that it creates on the end links, I have to move it over a bit. One side will fit flush on the axle housing, and the other will sit on a thicker piece of the axle. I would take a pic, but it's too dark out .

Yea man, good luck. It's easy but time consuming. Make sure you have a long wrench, with an angle if possible. It'll help a lot on the driver's side next to the tank. Because it will be a PITA (You can't get a ratchet in there). I just recommend that you not completely tighten down the bar to the axle, just in case.

In the end, you'll love how it reduces body roll when turning. Definitely worth it in my book, especially on my lifted truck. If you have any questions, let me know, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

Yep, the rear stays planted. I like it

You should pick these up, 2001 mustang rims or these if you want to go cheap Mustang Tires & Wheels. They are closer than the Cobra's lol

You need to drop it 5/7 now!!!

You can drop it. F it! Let the tires peel on the fenders, you'll have less rotation mass! haha jk I know man.

Those Saleen's are sick too! Last week I went to SD, got my spindle lift done, and my cousin added some 05+ GT wheels onto his mustang. Painted them Graphite. They look pretty good and you can find them around cheap sometimes. Oh and these babies TUCK compared to the older mustang wheels.
