Need feedback asap for lowering springs. Must place order today.

Want to put lowering springs on my 96 SVT Cobra. I want to lower it and improve handling, but not make it ride like a track car. Moss Muscle has 15% off sale that ends today. They carry Gripper by BBK or Ford Racing. The BBK come in progressive rate or fixed. The ford racing in two different ratings of fixed. Up until now I was thinking Eibach. Should I forget the sale and go Eibach? Do I want fixed or progressive? Your feedback is appreciated. I need to order by 4pm today, Friday.
Btw what other parts should I order as far as replacement isolators, I don't know, whatever to make this painless?
Thanks, Spiney-Dave

I would go with the eibach pro kit or the ford racing springs, I would consider changing the lower control arms because the bushings are usually bad and I would get a new control arm bolt kit because the bolts break more often than not , if you go progressive rate you'll need chamber plates or bolts , bump steer kit etc... And also if you haven't changed shocks and struts I would also consider doing so at this time

I would go with SR lowering springs from AM you get a good drop and they have a good price. Unless money is not an issue then yes go with eibach.

Thanks, have either of you added any other suspension parts other than the lowering springs? Are Camber Plates a necessity?

O3 fastback that's a rather stealthy looking Stang you have there. Back in 82 I had a brand new HO all black and I had a beard. I started work at a new factory and they thought I was Amish.

Ha I do not have any cc plates but I do have camber bolts. They're definitely needed
