Need suggestions for lowering springs

What are some springs that can get rid of the 4x4 look for a good price? Are caster camber plates needed?

If you want to get cheap springs tht get rid of the 4x4 look without caster chamber plates get SR performance lowering springs of AM. They are cheap but will last and get rid of that ugly gap without having to buy caster chamber plates cause they don't drop your stang way to far down

I got eibach sport lines. They are pricey, but they gave me a great stance. Looks better than some GT's.

I've always heard that as long as you stay above a 2" drop you dont need the CC plates

Are there any other upgrades needed after putting springs like the SR ones in?

correct...however all 74-04 mustangs use the same springs (save IRS cars)..only difference is the spring rate. a GT would get more of a drop out of the SR springs then our v6's do, but it's still almost 1.5"...

If that drop works for you then yes. Now I will say I have been considering going to a progressive spring, but it really depends what you have planned for your car.

Does getting progressive springs have a need for any other modifications?

A progressive wound spring will maintain some ride quality depends on spring rates. As the car goes into a corner the spring will stiffen increasing handling etc. As a linear spring will have relatively the same spring rate throughout the entire suspension cycle.

If u lower the ride height to much hence ( Coilovers ) you will run into excessive bump steer or toe changes and then bump travel issues with the struts and shocks. This will effect mid-corner handling and increase understeer charaterisctics. The car will also bottom out more and put the shocks on the bumpstops to much and eventually damage the internal seals on the shocks.
