Sr performance lowering springs?

I have a 1995 mustang gt convertible & I'm interested in the sr performance lowering springs. These springs say that they are for coupes & I was wondering how much they would lower my car since its a convertible?

Why not just buy springs that are made for a convertible?

They will lower it but will have the chance of lowering a tad more then the coupe model due to weight. Although SR springs are a pretty decent spring so it may be spot on. I run the GT sr springs on my v6 with out any issue

It's just that right now on American Muscle, they're on sale at 145 dollars & the ones that are meant for convertible are like 209 & don't lower the car a full 1.5 inches. There are others that are for convertibles but cost 250. That's why I was interested in the sr performance springs because everyone has good reviews about them & they're only 145 right now. Do you have any recommendations?

I'd say go for it. They'll fit for sure. And what was said before is true, you may get even more of a drop with the added weight of the convertible. I have the eibach springs in my hatchback, and I love them. They are the two inch drop ones.

Find lots of customer pictures and compare. Google it, look on or e-mail American Muscle, check out sn95.com "lowering spring" thread. Keep in mind that after getting springs, there are still dozens of variations that can come together directly effecting, ride height, comfort, stability, ect..
*I installed FRPP "C" springs and got a 2.5" drop when all the dust settled & a very large amount of time & cash invested. I have also seen "after" pictures that appear to have had little to no drop.
-The convertible is heavier, should be to your advantage. Post pics when all done,

OP,

We've had quite a few customers run the SR lowering springs on their verts without any issues. They typically ended up lowering the car 1.6-1.7" instead of the standard 1.5" for coupes. The springs are not listed for convertibles strictly because they're suppose to lower each car exactly 1.5" and aren't designed for the extra weight of a vert. Other than that, as long as you're not constantly racing in autocross, you'll be fine.

Hope this helps!

Shane

Hey,

The Coupe springs will fit on your Convertible, but like everyone said the back may be lower. The Convertible top and motor is a few hundred pounds of weight, that a coupe doesn't have over the rear wheels! The Convertible SR Performance Spring rate is going to be a little bit stiffer, to support the added weight.

I'm not sure exactly what the drop will be if you do this, as there's really no way to tell. However, if it would make things easier for you, how about I hook you up with the SR Performance Springs for the Convertible, at the same price of the Coupe Springs?

Please let me know if you'd like to do this and I'll make it happen. Shoot me a PM with any questions you may have! You can also give my CS team a call if you have any questions. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST.

-Dan
