Default Lower my GT500

i have been looking new set suspension for my 07 GT500 to lower about 2 inches. Here what I am thinking to get:

Pedders Adjustable Coilover Kit eXtreme Xa

BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod - Red

any though on this kit? Is it all I needs?

Not on the kit, as I have no personal experience with Pedders . . . but I will comment on your proposed amount of lowering. 2" lowering in the suspension would take more than half of the S197's bump travel away and (aside from severely reduced ground clearance) put you at significantly different points on camber curves, bump setter curves, and the axle roll steer curve. I doubt it would drive anywhere near as nice as it does now.

A better-driving solution might be to lower the car less in the suspension and make some of that up with tires half an inch or so shorter than stock.
