Stay away from the eibachs !! I have the eibach 2in kit and I already replaced the front 2. There a pain to get a replacement spring from summit, both times on back order

I love it. It looks so mean but be prepared for rough scrap sounds on the bottom. Not when I drive but when some service idiot or valet guy drives it.

Re: Lowering springs

H&R Super Sports are about 1.75"-2" in front and 1.25"-1.5" in back. I'd recommend them. I installed them on my buddy's '04 Mach1 and the stance is really mean, but not too low.

Sounds awsome I think I'm gonna go with a 2" drop. Did you go withthe same height front and back? And did you go with just the springs or the coil over kit? From where?

2" all the way around. Dynamic racing springs. Ride isn't too rough. You just gotta watch roads that have a crown. You engine cradle will only be like 2" off the ground

Tokico blue kit here and the drop is substantial enough I never measured but it's near 1.5" drop and the ride is still very good. I'm glad I switched to them and would pick the same kit when it wears out down the road.
