I'll be getting H&R super sports on my GT soon. I highly recommend them! We lowered my buddy's 2004 Mach 1 and it's stance is sick now.

But if you lower it with the super sports then don't forget the camber caster plates and bumpsteer kit. And might wanna upgrade shock/struts if they're higher miles. And ball joints.. Yeah the springs are only $240 but I could probably spend $1200 on lowering my car the right way. Lol

FYI if you have 315 for rears do not lower your car to the extreme cause you will carve up you tires

I just put a set of h&r race springs on for that reason. And when you do you springs you gotta do your shocks too. You will do major wear on your springs if you don't support them properly with a good set of shocks.

Re: H & R springs!!!

H&R Super Sports will drop the car ~1.6" in the front and ~1.75" in the rear. Race Springs drop the car less, ~1.25.

I have th SS's, and I love them...amazing stance and the car does feel more composed on the curves. My drop is slightly lower than usual as I took out the isolators...this will make the ride more harsh and louder in the cabin, but that's what music's for, lol.

If you get the SS's, plan on new shocks/struts and CC plates at the minimum.

At 32k miles, your stock parts will last for a little while but will eventually wear due to the changed load and rate given off by the progressive springs.

New ball joints aren't a bad addition and a bumpsteer is a must. It will be greatly exaggerated after lowering and can cause uneven tire wear and an unpredictable car on the road over bumps if not countered.

The CC plates, bumpsteer kit and solid alignment will get your car's geometry back into spec to prevent uneven tire wear and possible blowouts, even with 315's on the back

It is important to to suspension the right way. Just installing lowering springs will only bring wear issues in the future. It's best to spend the extra cash and replace the necessary components at the same time.

You will spend more in the short term, but you and your car will appreciate it in the long run

Like a couple guys said above lowering is not cheap to do right. Springs are not the only thing you need to do. You want to do springs, shocks and struts, bump steer, CC plates, and many times ball joints (steeda x2 makes a great setup for lowered cars that really helps)

Re: H & R springs!!!

I agree that lowering it would look better. It's on my list for my Mustang. The "gap" I was talking about is another kind all together

I have Eibach pro lowering springs and Eibach pro shocks and struts And i love my setup i have not done the cc plates or bumpsteer yet but they are planned for in the future. My only regret is not knowing Eibach made a coilover system for my Stang but if I had it all to do again I believe I would look into the Eibach coilovers just so I could have a little more adjustment options to perfect my stance. Eibach is expensive but top of the line IMHO I'll never forget putting 6 carlengths between me and a new ss camero in the corners after the install ..... He owned me in the straight but he couldn't hang in the corners I was so proud
