Lowering springs?

Does anyone know where to get decent priced springs with like a 2"-2.5" drop? Im tired of the high stock stance my GT has now.

Agree^

you could go sportlines without isos but you would want some kind of cushion.

If you got the funds upgrade shocks and struts. Stockers will wear fairly quickly with the new ride height.

That's what I ordered H&R springs, 1.7 front , 1.9 back , way more of a

drop vs eibach . I looked for a while and for me that is the perfect height

and I still have some travel left over. Here is what it will look like

from another mustang pic with the same springs , she will look fine.

How well does your antenna work? Compared to stock sky scraper?

I cut my antenna down to 18" and I haven't had any problems. And it looks so much better.

Mine is about 3 inches and its billet aluminum, was about 10-15$ on ebay lol. It works great but rarely certain spots get static. But i use my iphone for everything in my car so wasnt a big deal to me. Antennas to my knowledge work the same no matter how tall or small with car radios anyway its all about how much wire is wrapped inside, in my case i have the same amount of wire with my stock to the 3inch i was told.

Ebay, they were a lot cheaper than any other place just make sure the product number matches tein's official website.

JUst b careful running anything lower then 2" ride height drop. You might get excessive bump steer and bump travel with the shock not to mention ground clearance issues with the exhaust.

I have had zero problems, now with that said if you just blow through a speed bump doing 30 your probably gonna mess something up. With lowering comes more precautions. But i have only scraped 3 times and thats because it was a really steep bump and shouldnt of even tried it but decided to anyway.

I haven't measured how low I am, but if I so much as look at a speed bump the wrong way I will scrape.
