Sr lowering springs

Just ordered some SR lowering spring after hearing good reviews and getting them 80 dollars off for Black Friday I got them, could not pass up that deal. I was just wondering how hard these are to instal and any advice?

I'm in the same boat. Picked up a set of spring and camber plates. Never touched suspension in my life. However, upon my research, i did find that Youtube has a ton of videos on 05-09 mustang spring install. Very detailed, and decent camera work. I'd start there. Doesn't seem too hard!

I know with the New edges it's like 1/4 inch more. I'd assume it's the same with later models.

YouTube is your friend, there are plenty of videos available. My favorite one that I used was of a guy with a 2001 Bullitt. Auto DIY was in his name. It was a good video. If you have a full day and standard hand tools you can do it. I'm a novice at mechanical stuff and I did it.

I currently have these springs. Installation was pretty basic. I am 18 and did it myself. Air tools are your friend. You will need a spring compressor and a good amount of time. To save time doing the back, I think I put jack stands on the frame and unbolted the shocks to drop the axel alittle, that way you can just slide out the old and slip in the new. The springs drop it perfectly and are a lot stiffer for improved handling. Here's what they look like
