Honestly it looks sweet I love my car lowered for looks and not so much when I go over speed bumps. Or into steep parking lots.

A fad? Ok how about track days? Handling? AutoX, drifting? Not good for daily driving I'd agree. I have tokico d spec fully adjustable with 2' drop tein springs. I'm not saying this setup is awesome but it's good for the track and definitely makes it look better than a monster truck mustang.

The tracks a different story. In the late 60s and 70s everyone put the biggest air shocks and fatest&tallest tires they could buy. That fad has since passed.

You guys are kinda right, the "fad" of lowered cars might pass, but there will always be people with low cars for track racing. You NEED that lower center of gravity and stiffer springs.

Yeah unless it's my "wife's car" that's the only way I'd own a car with fender gaps. I remember when I got my car stock I could put both fists ontop of each other under the rear gap yuck.

No not at all. How bad is it bent? Take it off and get two 2x4's a hammer and a friend or relative to hold it while you bang it back into shape. It's hard to tell in the pics. Put the 2x4s on each side and hit the wood not metal to metal.

Wow, that's about as low as I've seen a Mustang get. You could drive that here in Indiana. You'd be leaving your exhaust in various places just going to the quick e mart. Looks good

I drive the bad roads of NOLA and Baton Rouge. My car is pretty low and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love the handling and looks. Plus if I drive nicely I don't have any problems with bottoming out, really.

Lowering a car is absolutely not a fad. It has a purpose. On top of that, the Mustang is awfully high for a performance car. Has sloppy suspension and is unstable in the rear. Additionally, Mustang have been lowered since their original inception. 50 year fad?

Now, SLAMMING them? That is a fad I HOPE because SLAMMED cars serve 0 purpose and handle worse than stock.

I love it. I did the FRRP 1" drop and I loved it. But after the BMR Relocation bracket where it raised the body, I want the 1.5 inch ones in the rear now.

I like the look of the sport lines but was told the k springs are better for performance .... I'd like to swap the rear springs for sportlines.... But I don't want to lose weight transfer ... If I decide to do it I'll let u know...

I like the way eibach handles so far, i was told by Nick Liltz a former GT racer it was one of the best springs to use without going to a coil over setup

Hard starts and quick braking felt like I was riding a bull before I swapped in new springs. Now the car stays nice and flat with spirited driving. I used the Steeda sport springs which are linear rate.

It not all about lowering for looks, it's about improving the suspension to better suite a +300 HP modified car

Agreed. I should have mentioned as well that braking was much improved and 1/4 acceleration was easier since it didn't flop back and forth on shifts.

I recently added the Steeda lowering springs to my '06 GT. I think they said 1" on the front and 1.2" on the rear. Personally, I love the look of a lowered 'Stang in this body style; the off-balanced stock appearance is unattractive and offers no benefit, imho. However, that said, and even though mine isn't a daily driver I can't imagine having gone lower due to the stiffness of the ride. It's like my own personal little go-kart. Too rough for a daily driver, but for the curves and over all handling I'm happy.

I have the same springs, after about a year and 2k miles the will soften up a bit.
