Lowering

My car is stock height. I want it to be lowered where there's like a finger of a gap. How low is that & how can I do it ?

I have a 2013 and didn't want to lower it too much because I live in nyc and the roads are everything but decent. I went with lowering it 1inch all around with roush lowering springs. I'm barely able to stick in 2fingers. You might want to look for springs that drop your ride 1.5inches.

The mustangs below 2010 have way more wheel gap than the 2010+ my 99 is lowered on ebaich pro springs and it is slightly higher off the ground than my friend's bone stock 2012

If you don't have the money for camber plates or coil overs, then you can't afford to lower your car correctly. At the very least some eibach camber bolts. (Dirt cheap on AM). And don't cheap out and not get it aligned.

Went to a shop today & he said that camber plates are for more than 2 inches. To get to where I'll be at a comfortable drop is about 1 1/2 inch

You can achieve a 1-2" drop with lowering springs. Anything more and you'll want coilovers.

03 V6 with H&R SuperSports, no isos, cc plates = ~1.75-2 finger gap (front)




04 Mach 1 with SR Lowering Springs, no isos, no cc plates = 2-2.25 finger gap (all around)

This is a 2.5" front 2" rear drop. Caster camber plates are needed after a 1.5" drop. You can lower it without installing them but you're gonna get some really bad camber wear.

Edit: love the great triple post
