Just depends do you have a drag car? They are excellent at the track. You can really dial them in and gain better 60ft times.. I have never ran a coil over set-up because of inexperience and $$.

Adjust ride height easily.
Reduce weight.
Improve handling for aggressively set-up Mustangs without degrading ride quality.
Many spring rates are available, from moderately soft to extremely stiff, in 25 lb/in increments.
Superb with aggressive Torque-arm suspensions.
Designed for proper fitment with specific shocks; these are not universal-fits-nothing-well kits.
Superior design, engineering, and manufacturing; all done in the U.S.A.

Rear Coil Over Kits - A lot cheaper than $1400, but I don't know exactly what you were pricing either.

Yeah if it's 1400 count me out on a street car.. Unless I get a nice bonus in the future and really can't decide where to spend it..

I don't know why those are so pricey.
The shocks are not even single adjustable.


Another reason to install them on the rear is to free up your suspension so it can work better.
By removing the spring from the lower control arm it allows the suspension to react more quickly and more efficiently.
Also springs for them are available in many different spring rates which allows you to tailor your suspension to your chosen Motorsports or street driving activity. Example a 110 to 120 lb rear spring usually works good for drag racing and the heavier 200 lb and up springs work better for street and road course duties.
