Lowering Springs

Ok next big step, Lowering springs, Im honestly looking for deals on lowering springs but sometimes deals seem too good and make me think they arent worth it. My buddy got some off brand springs and his car rides fine, and I want to do the same thing but im second thinking, I found these...

79-93 94-04 99-04 FORD MUSTANG RED LOWERING SPRING KIT : eBay Motors (item 230444975746 end time May-02-10 20:28:38 PDT)

I was wondering if anyone had these springs of recommended any.
I wanted atleast a 2in drop.
OH also these springs say 2.5-3.0in drop, is that too much?
if it makes a difference I have 18's in the back and 17's in the front.

Re: Lowering Springs

I love my H&R race springs and I am 26.0 inches front 26.5 rear from ground to fender but my car has more front end weight etc than yours would~

A 2 inch drop will require caster/camber plates to correct alignment, and cheap cc plates dont work very well. They are generally 200 bucks for good ones. For name brand springs its 200-250~

Ford C springs are good springs for the money but wont drop you 2 inches

Re: Lowering Springs

You have to remember, you get what you pay for...your friend may have had no issues with his, but that doesn't mean you won't. Plus, 2.5-3" is going to slam that ***** down. If you have a chin spoiler you're not going anywhere to eat, lol.

If you really want to save money, look into some economy springs through places like Latemodel Restoration or UPR. They have companies like Eibach make them springs and basically don't label them with their name. They run about $169 compared to $229 or $249. They offer a 1.5" drop which is noticeable, unlike the c-springs.

As said, you'll want CC plates for alignment and possibly new shocks/struts to handle the change in spring rates. It's best to do it right and not cause problems to your suspension and tires.

Contact John@NQS Performance, he's a site sponsor and can hook you up with CC plates and other suspension components.
