Suspension on my car

Thinking about to change out my suspension system and upgrade.

(I am second owner. So bear with me)

-eibach springs? Thinking about just buy the springs only, not whole thing like the "Eibach system pro plus" $879. Because the one I have under mine is branded "ford racing" which brings me to the thought that I probably don't have the stock ones, and don't need to buy whole thing. Just the springs to rid the 4x4 look.

Again, I'm worried that because I want much more stiff, good at curves suspension type. I might have to just do whole thing?

Or should I just go ahead get the eibach springs, sway bars (rear / front)? Saving me some money.

Probably be $600 total. Saving me about $200.

Another things I will likely to add after above.

-Swarr bar 8.8 rear support
To support the car so it has the ability deliver much as HP the car can.

-J&M chamber plates (well of course the stock aren't going be good with the aftermarket suspension.)

-eibach pro alig


Am I on right track?

I am looking towards to full suspension system change out at the moment, I do not plan to mod the motor anytime soon. Because I'm still on the edge deciding on whenever swapping out for another motor (stronger one to handle at least over 500hp-600hp.)

Thanks.

I haven't had the best luck with lowering springs. Every set I've had in the past actually made my suspension bumpy as hell! I'm swapping out to coil overs now. I'm hoping this'll fix my problem.

It's not the lowering springs, its the bad roads in Corpus Christi. They just keep getting worse.

So you're suggesting, I should just get the
Sway bars, and eibach coilovers?

I am planning to buy. Just need some pointers. I have done a lot of research.
Just want a response.

I'm wanting to do an massive suspension upgrade.
Would like to know what is extremely important to get at first?

I'm going with sway bars (front & rear).
Eibach pro alignment
J&M chamber plates
Swarr bar 8.8 rear support

Lowering springs, then add it up with newer shocks & struts (possibly the eibach pro-damper. Or koni/torski)?

Then these things I think should be the last.
Control arms (lower and rear upper)
Steeda bumpster
Steeda pandhard bad

Yeah, I can't argue with that. But my car was a much smoother ride with the stock springs.

Let me put it to you this way. My BC Coilovers should be here any day now and after I swap out my lowering springs, they are going in the trash.

Mm do you think this will work?
Tokich struts & shocks with the lowering springs will work?

I'm not really sure if coilovers will be worth it because they are expensive. If I don't buy them, I get more for my money.

Lowering springs of your choice for the drop you want (FRPP, Steeda, Eibach, etc), shocks & struts (Koni/Tokico are good, non-adjustable to save $ or adjustable for more control), camber plates/bolts (MM plates if you will track) and adjustable panhard bar if you lower over an inch. It's not more for your money than coilovers, but you can buy them in pieces. If you're buying all at once, coilovers is the way to go.

I haven't heard too many complaints about eibach springs. I'm sure they'll be better then the crap I had. I don't even recall what brand they were.

You said earlier that you were going to get a Steeda pan hard bar. FYI, the adjustment nut it up near the bushing and make for a pita to adjust. I went with the BMR pan hard bar because the adjustment but is about 5 or 6 inches down the shaft.
