Haha @ silver.

OP, go on AM and look at the ford racing lowering kit or the Eibach pro kit. Then add steeda caster camber plates and enjoy the curves

Yeah, I got ya man. I just remember my first post in a car forum a few years ago... I got bashed pretty hard, called an idiot etc, for asking a question I should have searched for. I never posted on that forum again.

That is why I bailed on a few other "mustang" sites...d-baggery abound....yeah it gets old but even if the mods make stickies people will still post repetative questioins..


OP---AM for all your lowering needs

I got your back on this one. I would think that with such a simple mod as lowering, most people would only ask about brand product recommendations.

Problems now that the 05 06 cars are getting old and falling into the hands of teens that know nothing about working on cars. So it will most likely get much worse in the future.

I'm not hating brother. I agree with you. I thought he was new, but then I looked at his profile and he has like 50 posts... OP should have known to do a quick search. We were just talking about this last week...

The bums in charge on this fourm should make some stickes, 410vs373. Lowering FAQ, CAI list with MAF housing size and if tune is required. Axle back brands all with links to YouTube or directed to site sponsors

Op should have said this:

I've been debating over the following brands for complete out of box suspension set up:
roush
Saleen
Frpp
Griggs (yea right lol)
ehibach
Steeda

And what shop and or site would you recomend? I was thinking of American muscle or late model restoration but I like giving money to local business and their is a good shop near me by the name of X... any of you near my area that have used them, if so how would you rate them compared to dealing w an online shop?

But w each there are pros and cons... silversky i have noticed you are big on used parts how and where do you go to locate all your fantastic deals? in all of your masterful expertise what would you "master of throttle" suggest I do or go to find what I am looking for ?

see how I made fun an answered his question at the same time... hold the applause

If it helps the SR springs that you have a picture of work great! A buddy of mine has had them on his 08 for about 30,000 miles and are still holding up! They don't have the warranty of ford racing k springs but the car sits at a nice height and drives and handles good. If your on a budget go with them just make sure at some point in time you upgrade your struts n socks. I mean his are working fine doing their job so to me they are good. You could also go with UPR springs which are the the same as the eibach pro kit and k springs to my understanding just my 2 cents

Yeah thats what i had in mind, get the springs and run them on stock struts/shocks and then upgrade in the future.

Yeah go that route you will be fine! Like I said it handles good way better than stock you will love them. And the stance looks good too!! Make sure you get an adjustable pan hard bar because your rear end will be over to your driver side a bit. Or just fab your own up.
