Lowering Springs

I've got an 07 GT I'd like to lower a little. ( 1 to 1.5 inches). Are lowering springs the way to go? And if so, is that something I can do in my garage?

Absolutely. You can do this yourself. Be sure to go with a quality spring set. I bought some cheap ones and my ride quality went down the crapper. I hear Eibach's are great.

I got the ford racing k-spring which lowered it 1.5 all around. Looks & feels great! Only thing I recommend getting is caster camber plates, cause when I put my springs on it moved my front wheels out & then I would be wearing out the inside of my tire instead of the tire being flat on the ground. & you will need a spring compressor to take off the front springs. If you got that you should be able to do it no problem.

Not true, you wanted to level yours with lower springs in the back. I like the unleveled stance with the K

I didn't need a spring compressor because I'm a Boss.

You don't have to have camber plates, I would get the Eibach camber bolts, I'm lowered 1.6 front and 2.0 in back and it aligned fine.

Yes, lowering springs are the way to go.

Yes, with the right tools and equipment (and experience) you should be able to do this in your garage.

There are other parts you may need/want, it just depends on what springs you choose.

For instance, our Sport/Ultralite springs (Sports = 1" [F] 1.25" [R] drop, Ultralites = 1.25" [F] 1.5" [R] drop) don't require any other parts, though I do highly recommend an adjustable panhard bar (to re-center the rear-end) and our heavy-duty upper strut mounts (to adjust camber).

I have Eibach lowering kit on my 07 GT. Its a little stiffer, but handled great through the curves and looks way meaner IMO. MUST do the caster cambers though. I have the steeda's, and since I put them in, no issues with alignment.

I have k springs... you have k springs... how is it I want something different from you? If you are referring to a previous pistcabout swapping rear springs that's because in an out of corners level is better... uneven is better for straight.... I was simply testing the waters...
