Complicated suspension question

Hello,

I have a 2011 mustang GT. Recently the front tires blew out due to my cars height. I guess my options are to get a Bolt spacer kit for the front end or to raise the car to factory height. I also want to get new shocks and struts because of the rough ride. Im afraid the new s and st will wear out quickly since they wont get the full range of motion due to the fact that it is lowered.

Therefore would my best option be to put it back to factory height? Opinions?

Re: Complicated suspension question

you can drop down one tire size (sidewall wise) to say what a 94-04 would run, but a tuner would be needed to modify the rotations per mile for the speedo. I would not do this if I ran any taller than 18 inch rims. For 18s it would look fine maybe better since its lowered.

The travel will still be the same however, not sure new CC plates allow for more travel in the front or not. Check with maximum motorsports. I know mine allow for more travel.
