Suspenssion question

Ok guys so I lowered my 04 GT with Eibach prokit and I put new poly isos on, I currently have stock shocks but thinking of getting some blistens or tokico soon
The thing is, those springs didnt drop her as much as I'd liked and idk what I should now to get a better stance
Will any of those shocks lower my car a little?
Or should i Take isos off? Or
Cut springs and leave isos on or
Wait till I get the new shocks
Thanks in advance for your input

Well for one shocks dont lower the ride height springs do. Other question it depends on your budget Tokicos r good bang for your buck but quality wise Bilsteins are much better. I would let the Eibachs settle for a week. Measure from the ground to the bottom of the fenders and your quarter panels then in a week or so recheck it again to see if it changed. Do this on a flat surface if u can.

The shock controls the ossialtion of the spring as it compresses and rebounds.

Do not cut the springs. If you want later on you can remove the ISOs if you want.

I would just try removing the isolators first and go from there. See if that help
it should drop 1/4+ more depending on what isos your running. How much lower
are you wanting to go?

Grab some stock Mach 1 springs and cut them. If you can get ahold of a set. Or stock gt springs. One coil gives a good drop.

because they are progressive springs and cutting them are a no no...if they were linear like stockers or other aftermarkets then it'd be ok to cut..just pull the poly iso's

if your someone you obsesses over your stangs stance (i do) than save up and get coilovers... To me, no matter which springs ya go with or what ya do with your iso's etc ya just never get that PERFECT stance. Thats just my opinion. Ive juggled a good amount of springs and struts/shocks and never was 100% happy with the end result. Coilovers are pricey though which is unfortunate
