Springs

I have a question for you guys that have lowered your cars? My 04 is stock and I would love to lower it a little for looks and more important handling, but at times my undercarriage or my front bumper will scrape now at stock height especially with a passenger. I imagine lowering your cars caused you a lot more issues like this.

Damn, how high are your speed bumps? But people who have lowered them say that it scrapes but nothing really bad happens

I may not have lowered mine yet, but a lot of people that have done scrape at all. Not over speed bumps or anything. Are high are the bumps you're hitting??

If your going for a small drop get some SR performance lowering springs. I think their 150 on AM I installed mine myself. They get rid of that ugly gap that the mustangs all come out of the factory with and mine never scraps. It's drops it 1.75 inches. You'll be fine with getting these springs.

Anything else and you'll scrap and need caster chamber plates.

You have to learn to take drive ways and bumps at angles. Both my current stang and my previous stang have been lowered more the 2' all around you just gotta learn we're to drive and to take angles
