ford racing C springs are great springs, they have a stiff rate so they handle better... but ride worse. You can try to find some B springs for a softer ride.

H&R makes a quality spring also. I'm very happy with mine.

i love my H&R just a bit more costly than the Ford B Springs, also you may require CC plates, thats 180 bucks for those on top of springs and install.

Re: looking for reliable lowering springs!

Yah Eibach Sportline springs and H&R Super Sports are going to require CC plates a bumpsteer kit and possibly new shocks/struts. The drop is significant compared to stock.

If you want a noticeable but not over the top drop look into some Ford Racing springs (B or C's) as said above or possibly Eibach pro kit springs. I've heard of them dropping cars anywhere from 1" to slightly over the advertised 1.5", in which case you'd probably want CC plates to make adjusting your suspension geometry back to spec much easier.

Anytime you lower the car you should get an alignment. I personally would do it regardless of the drop. .75" or 2", it's worth the money to get it done.

Cool, you'll be happy with those springs...they will drop the car some but not too much to where daily driving is a hassle.

You may want to consider an alignment after the drop even with the b springs. I'd measure the height from the ground to the fenderwell at stock height, then I'd wait for the car to settle fully ~ week or so, then measure the height to the fender again. The difference in height will tell you how much the car was lowered. If it's around 1.25" or more I'd probably get an alignment. Better to spend $100 on an alignment than several hundred on new front tires.
