I didn't say it helped on a track with optimal driving conditions I said it helps while driving down the highways with rear end wiggle from the winds that blow across our highways

Re: Show me your stang with lowering springs

the more you lower the car the more the rear wheels look to sit deeper and deeper in the fender FYI

Re: Show me your stang with lowering springs

As far as rear tires looking deeper do you mean more narrow. Because all my wheels are the same size, should I get rear wheel spacers to push my rear wheels out a bit, or will it look OK.

Re: Show me your stang with lowering springs

There is alot to consider, isn't there?
-Ride comfort w/spring rates, lowered length, performance & behavior, tire wear & specialized perfect alignment, ect...

i dislike the use of spacers...i have run hubcentrics to adapters and in the back of my head i always think something is going to go wrong with them lol. i know hubcentrics are about as safe as spacers get, but man i can never shake the feeling that they're gonna fall apart while i'm driving 70 and there goes my wheel lol...then again i've lost a wheel before on the highway doing about 60 so that might be where that fear comes from

but the best way to flush out a back wheel is to get a tire and wheel that flushes the rear on its own without the use of a spacer. what size tires are you running right now? as for what he meant on a deeper look i think he meant the sunk in look from where the fender now looks like it's stuck out more even though it's the same as it's always been...here's an example

on the left is one of my stangs with stock everything...on the right is a stang i don't have anymore that was lowered with cut springs. notice how the deepness of the back tire looks more profound lowered

Mustang gt with eibach pro kit. Steeda CC plates. I think the tire sidewall I'm the front is less to help slam it.

I can do the rear in an hour and fronts in about 3 if I'm doing it the safety way and have to drill for a 4 bolt CC plate.

Thanks, I feel it could be a little lower, but I'm real happy with the ride.

Yes I do. Speed bumps are over rated, as they say. Scrape all over.

More than 2 inches. I studied & asked questions, considered all types of parts, and Googled all kinds of suspension jobs for a year before I started the job of installing everything. It's a very tricky job getting it just right. It took a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck to turn out like it did.
-Anyway, I dropped almost 3 inches. It's not slammed, just lowered. I go over speed bumps at an angle and slow. I never bottom out or scrape on roads. It has a comfortable, soft ride. Sticks to the road, and doesn't nose dive on hard breaking. I'm very happy.
