Coilovers

So I was wondering I'm lowered on h&r super sports so I would run those in the rear and could I run some coil overs in the front? If so what is a good coil over system for the front to lower my at more? Links please


Thanks Braxton.

I've got a similar thread asking a lot of the same questions. I like the Maximum Motorsports coil-over set-up.

When I bought my gt that's what it came with, lowering springs in the back and coilovers in the front. Griggs all around

What you mean Griggs all around? If I do coilovers just in front what do I have to buy and what should I buy? All I want it is for looks I don't drag or autocross or anything so just for looks?

Griggs shocks and springs in the back and Griggs coilovers in the front. I later upgraded to coils in the back. I just had cc plates

If you are just buying the front kit you are going to need whatever shocks the kit is designed for (the website should give you some options) and caster camber plates. I'm planning on Maximum Motorsports full coil-over kit with Bilstein shocks. http://www.maximummotorsports.com/st...cPath=514_2_78
A good place to just compare prices is stangsuspensions.com

Yep. Most kits are designed to fit the factory mounting points.

Idk about the camber bolts. I've heard that the QA1s are a drag type coil-over but I'm not 100% sure how true that is.

QA-1 Mustang Single Adjustable Front Coil-Over Conversion - 175lb Springs (94-04 All) HS603S-14175 - Free Shipping!

RUNNWLD,

That QA1 kit and some adjustable caster camber plates should be all you need. SR performance has some decent CC plates for an affordable price, too. If you're looking to keep cost down, SR performance is a safe route to take!

Yes, you should be able to lower your ride 3inches with those QA1's. Just be careful where you're driving when you're that low! Also, don't forget to get an alignment. You're really going to need it with a drop like that!

Good luck lowering it 3 inches. Your gonna scrape every little rock on the road and tea up your bumpers and exhaust. I only went down 1.7 and I scrape sometimes coming into my driveway. I would only go 2 inches maximum for a dd
