Question Springs...

Yes on the alignment and plstktnkr2 what amount of drop are you wanting depends on what you will need to do to the suspension. I personally thing all the bushing kits are a waste unless you are going to autocross or they have deteriorated

Great which eibach's ????????? if you are at 1.5 and dont go to 2.0 you can get by with only C&C plates if you go past 2.0 the whole geometery is off and the need for additional steering and suspension components.

I will have to do some research on the springs to see if my front springs from Eibach Which are from a later car (V6) will fir my perches. Back are no problem since its a later 8.8

I would go with C&C plates if you drop 1.5. Dont waste time with wedges. they is just a rig job. It might be fine for a family sedan but not for a car you are trying to make a performance car !!!!

The best C&C plates are either

MAXIMUM Motorsports at about 190.00
http://www.stangsuspension.com/store...?idproduct=164

UPR at about 140.00-160.00

I would say the best are those designed and built by Kenny Brown - they are not your fancy colorized aluminum but they are solid and easy to work with

Personally I would stay away from UPR - I literally HATE their customer service and most of their products are sub-standard.

even wtih stock specs my tires wore bad... its just the specs stock use with wider tires.... i would eventually get mm cc plates just cuz they are so darn nice you can completely control how your tires wear

also there are two ways to install you can install for max camber or normal not really lowered car specs.

They are a excellent product and I have had no problem with there customer service. I hit a piece of concrete in the road about a year ago it destroyed the Front left Strut, pushed the strut tower up 2 1/2 inches and destroyed the UPR C&C retention plate on the bottom side of the tower. I called them up and they sent a brand new set yet all I needed was the retention plate at no charge.

Customer service bad !!! NO.

I know a lot of drag racers who use UPR products and I will stand by their products. I am sorry if you have had problems but from all the people who use their products it appears to be a isolated incident.
