SR is garbage. Go with Eibach

I'd go with KONI STR.T. for springs like those.

I have the sr, I've had eibach and h&r springs as well. To be totally honest the h&r rode the worst. (They had the biggest drop though) eibach and sr were almost identical. That being said, I don't road course so I may not be the best reviewer. If it's just a daily driver I would save a little cash and get the sr. If you like to tackle turns and corners though you may want to go with the eibachs.

Thank you! I like to burnout and obviously drift kinda on turns so I'm looking for that low look but also keeps the body flat, nothing too fancy but don't wanna ride harsh either.

For what you want I think the SR kit would be fine. It's jusy Springs. Kinda hard to mess up metal coils ya know. Having both HR, on my 01 cobra, and SR on the S197 I don't notice any dramatic difference.

I just installed SR Performance springs along with an adjustable BMR panhard bar, new gt500 strut mounts and eibach camber bolts. The drop is 1.5in and was immediate. The SR Performance springs are not ****ty, they were hard to compress, looked very nice, had uniform shape and coated with this blue finish that looked really nice. They are quality pieces. No weird noises, shakes, shimmies, knocks or anything else from these springs when driving. Very pleased with them.

I'm not much of a suspension guy, so I'm curious how difficult an 07 gt would be or better to take in to have pros do it

Lowering kit SR VS EIBACH

When I did my springs myself the backs took me 15 minutes total for both. The fronts took me an hour a piece haha. If you watch that video you will see why.

If I were to do it now it wouldn't take my long at all but when you do it your first time you will have to overcome the "wtf am I doing" factor.

You can defiantly do it yourself and if you watch that video while your doing it you will be in good shape. Make sure you can dedicate a whole afternoon to it so you don't feel rushed. Seems like whenever I tackle a weekend project on the mustang my girlfriend magically needs a ride somewhere and that makes it 100x more frustrating.

I've used them extensively even on a road course and they really held their own!

Dmarq-Thanks for taking the time to post up a mini review and your thoughts on them! I've test fit them on my '08 and was really blown away by the quality and ride. I've run a bunch of different setups on my cars over the years and they really stack up!

It's really doable! My only recommendation would be to have someone else there to help, that's it! Let me know if you have any questions at all!

Almost forgot...Only issue we ran into was needing a 3 or 4mm wrench to hold that center piece to remove the end link bolt. My part had a rubber boot on the back so it didn't go as smooth as it looks in the video, but once we figured that part out, it was back to smooth sailing.

Not everyone wants to be slammed to the ground. The H&R SS look great. The ride is harsh and to me having owned all of them for a daily driver its just too much.

I went with the blue ones. It's not to stiff like the red set but not too soft as the whites. The blues give it a good stance and a comfortable ride. And I've been running them for about 4-5 years now and they still feel like they day I bought them. Great quality!
