I'm not sure which to go with, b or c? Not 100 percent what the difference is, but I'm not looking for a HUGE drop maybe like 1 and a quarter all around

The only diff between the b and the c is the spring rate. the b is a gonna be a little softer up front then the c springs but the drop is the same. Are u changing shocks and struts?

Re: Springs

stiffer ride = c springs (but better handling) b springs I dont think give as good of a drop but they may, they are softer (near stock spring rate)

also, some C springs need to be cut some do not.

Re: Springs

I'll toss my set I for 150. Totally low. My 97 GT Convertible was sitting 3 inches off the floor at the cats. Was pebble dodging. Mind you, I have a convertible, heavier! Could get your stang sittin higher than you want and ride harder too.

Ok that's what I thought the difference was just wanted a second opinion, my car is my daily driver, but if a tuner pulls up next to me and wants to cruise then it's my street car, stiffer springs result in more torque to the tires and less squatting, better launching. I just replaced the rear shocks, while doing this lowering process I am going to swap out the front struts, which one, I'm still debating on which to get. Deff going to get the camber caster plates, that's a must, it was springs or a tuner. I pick the springs, one cheaper, two it makes the car look totally sick. The tuner will be next on my agenda.

Idk if it is necessary but i would keep the shocks and struts the same brand and model. Im sure u can mix and match but its gonna be that much harder to make sure u get a good match as far as damping and spring rates go... i guess anyway i could be wrong but thats just my opinion.

Oh yea and the caster camber plates aren't always needed... i would lower and get it aligned to see if u need then.. with the ford springs they say 1.25in drop so i would think u could get away with out them. I have Eibach sportlines and i didnt need the plates. The shop got me within a degree of factory specs and im going to go with the camber bolts.. there only like $30 and they correct alignment up to a full degree
