Lowering a 05-09 Mustang?

Before I lower my mustang I'd like some feedback. I plan on putting on Ford Racing 1.5" drop springs on my car, but am curious on how much more harsh the ride will be. Any input fellow Steed owners???:chin:

my friend has eibach pro kit springs and it is more harsh, no doubt about it. Its however not horrible. If little things like a 20% more bouncy ride get on your nerves then you may want to go with a stock rate spring that just lowers the car or cut your stock springs.

you will need cc plates to correct that alignment though so add on some more coin

it will ride a little stiffer. the biggest thing you will notice, is when you hit a big bump it might hit the bump stops and feel harsh.
