What kind of coilovers do you have? This guy was asking about springs so I have him my opinion of the ones I purchased.. Of course I'd rather have coilovers, I just said with the set-up I have I'm giving those who've spent $1200+ a run for they're money

Mustang,

Nice! It sounds like you have a pretty sick GT. Thanks for being a great and loyal customer!

All Season tires aren't the greatest for a Mustang with power! However, it will help you get from A to B in the winter at least. We only got a few more months of this cold weather then its back to summer tires and the windows down!

Let me know if you ever have any questions or need some assistance.

-Dan

That's what they're designed to do. Reduce noise of the springs. You can also wrap them in electrical tape if you want it to go lower. I heard that works just as good

I heard it might be because they're old. I've had em in for a year now. But that doesnt make sense. And sometimes they don't come out as low as another of its kind.

And yea. The front doesn't bother me to much. But the rear sits a little too high for my liking. It doesn't even look lowered.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't aftermarket shocks and struts lower your ride a little? Obviously with lowering springs

I have tokico shocks. And I thought It was just to stiffen the ride. The springs it's self is for lowering.

+1 I was gonna say that's not no 2" drop. I'd take the isos out and get some 18s and it'd look sick

springs determine ride height not shocks/struts

I would still say get shocks and struts, the mileage of your car in low yes, but your car in 2003 the shocks and struts are 9 years old now, lots of time for everything to wear over that time.

mine has h&r race springs, no isos in the rear, and it takes a week or two for the springs to settle, got them from american muscle, printed out instructions and did them in carport

Don't put any fat chicks in ur ride then! Haha only time I scrap is on speed bumps sometimes when I'm too impatient and I'm at the stock height. I have springs and struts/shocks sitting in my garage begging me to putting them on. Just haven't had time. I'm hoping not to scrape too bad after. I'm mostly worried about my Mach lip and my mufflers themselves scraping. That's what hangs the lowest for me

My exhaust scrapes so bad. That's the only thing my chin spoiler rarely ever scrapes. But defiantly watch the exhaust and how low it hangs.

Married, I don't pick up fat chicks...I had me and two guys (my cousins) in the car, they weigh maybe 130 max each and my **** grinded on a speed bump...

That's what I'm worried about....more so it getting grabbed and pulled apart by a speed bump or something.

i've had an exhaust ripped off before on my first stang...first time is always the worst lol. now if i did it i don't think i'd be as pissed because i know it's an easy fix which usually ends with a new sounding exhaust which is always fun

As long as it didn't dmg the manifolds id be ok...I don't have $ to spend on new exhaust though. I finally got used Mac Pro chamber I bought a year ago put on....had to get a hole in it fixed and get it installed. Gonna take u back and have my buddy figure out how to fix it so it doesn't hang so low before I lower my car.
