lowering springs

Looking to lower my 01 gt don't know what brand to buy I'm picked two. The Eiback pro-kit springs or the bbk lowering springs from American muscle open to suggestions would love the help

Eiback for sure between those two as suspension is all they do.

I want the h and r set but they don't have a 1.5 inch all around set and I don't want my car to scrape

I have the H&R race springs and I believe the drop was 1.5 in the front and 1.25 inches in the rear with no clearance issues ( other than the fact that you have to be extra cautious with a lowered car) and I think it looks great. I like a slight rake to the stance.

If you replace the isos when you get the H&R SSs then it's about 1.25"-1.3" in the back and 1.5"-1.6" in the front. If you go without isos then it drops both by about 0.3" more. And then you can take the spacers off the X2 balljoint if you buy it and drop it another inch or so...

But like I said, stick with the isos on H&R SSs and the stance is pretty perfect.

Also if you drop your car then you need to get camber/caster plates and also aftermarket shocks..
