Looks good man. Mines the same color. On mine I have black letters for where it says "mustang" on the rear bumper. I got em off eBay for real cheap. I think it would look nice with the wheels and hood being black

Re: Took some pics of my ride

Looking good...a bit more practice at shooting the car though wouldnt hurt. Not a negative comment just another perspective on the pics. Always a nice color whenever its clean

Re: Took some pics of my ride

Not so much the darkness but the framing of the car...any higher shots? Usually shots from above normal viewing range makes a stock ride height look better

Re: Took some pics of my ride

Yeah no biggie...just low down shots make the car appear huge so of course a stock suspension really makes it look tall.

So im lookin at like 4-500 buck to comfortably lower it

Re: Took some pics of my ride

Honestly yes....but oem shocks will hold out usually for a long time lowered.

I would probably just do the springs and plates first then shocks later, rough rides don't bother me
But I read something about tie rod ends, ball joints and swaybar links. Will those wear out fast?

Re: Took some pics of my ride

depends on how low...every stang i've lowered only gets dropped 1.5" and i leave the rest oem....two reasons

1. cheap me at the time
2. i don't mind a tiny bit of rough ride...it's not a cady after all

although if and when my shocks do go some tokico blues will be the swap of choice for me

Alright I'll probably just leave the rest stock then
I see a set of springs on American muscle for a 100 bucks then some for like 250
Any recommendations?

Dang man your car looks great!
How much did it drop your car?
And do you have problems with bump steer?
Sorry if I'm just bombing you with questions, I just wanna know what I'm gonna have to deal with when I do lower

i think it dropped a good 2"or a bit morein the front and like 1.6-1.8 rear . i havent had any problems just my left tire front was hitting my fender. but thats because i have a bad lower control arm on that side. u shouldnt have any problems besides getting new shocks but ur stocks should do good for a good time.

Nice, I'm probably going to go with like 1.75 for the front then like 1.5 in the back so if they ever start to sag ill have a little bit of room instead of it slamming
