Eibach Coil over kit HELP!!!!!!!

Im trying to get a coilover kit for my 2007 mustang gt/cs and its procharged so it has a little added weight on the front. And ive been looking at the eibach 35101.711 kit which is the correct one for my car which will also fit a 2007 gt500. Eibach also sells 35115.711 which is specifically made for 07-10 gt500. as far as my search the only difference i can find is that they are rated differently the gt is 315lb/in and the gt500 is 400lb/in on the front. Could i buy 35115.711 and install it in my regular gt. since i can also get a better deal on it?

The best thing to do is contact Eibach directly and tell them everything your car has

They weren't much help and said if i were to install the other part on my car that they wouldn't cover the warranty on the coilovers. Im not trying to bash on women but a women helped me when i called and all she said was on eibach kit was for a gt500 and the other was for a regular gt. i tried asking for specifications on them but she said she didnt know.

Well the gt500 is also heavier for having a bigger engine. 5.4 compared to a 4.6. I would just go with what is made for you're car

the 5.4 is only about 75lbs heavier than the 4.6, since the 5.4 is aluminum and the 4.6 is iron block

IMO I you well be good with the kit for the gt.... There are many mustangs with power adders(extra front weight). Some still use the stock suspension on their and others don't. In other words your would have no problems with the eibach kit.

Thanks. so i guess my next question is when would it be a good idea to go with a higher rated spring or not at all. what are the benifits and cons?
