lowering the stang.

So, I have a set of Eibach sport line springs. My dad is going to take it to his ford shop mid next month and put them on along with some other suspension parts. what I wanna ask is, how low can you go before it becomes a problem with getting on a front end rack or a lift?

Honestly, both times that I have lowered my mustangs the shocks have gone out and I've had to get new shocks or struts. Right now I'm just saving for coil overs but I can't believe I made the same mistake twice! I would save up and do it right the first time. If you just want a mild lowered stance than do the eibachs but with a fresh set of eibach or koni shocks and struts. You don't want to do the same job twice just for "looks".

I don't have any issues with my S197, except that the "nascar style" jacks don't slide under my car anymore. Gotta drive onto to boards and then jack it up. At the exhaust shop they still just drive the car up like they always have. No problems.
