I haven't looked at that pack before. Bilstein makes some great shocks though. I'm a fan of slamming the car

Do you know what springs it's on? It doesn't look terribly low.

Edit: that was aimed at the OP, not the car BillyMich posted

OP this is my old H&R Race springs without the front isolators. I liked the stance when I had them.

Do you mean my current setup? Those are cut Cobra springs with an 03 Cobra IRS. Isolators are the rubber pieces that go between the springs and the spring perches. Usually they help lower it another 1/4" to 1/2" when you remove them.

Ok yeah that one is of my current setup. I didn't notice a difference in mine when I removed them. I think they are there to help quiet down the springs when going over bumps. I wrapped the ends of my springs in electrical tape and didn't notice any new noises.

Nah, I just chose to swap that in. The guy I traded with just cut a couple coils off of the stock springs so I got those in the trade. You can just cut the stock GT spring if you want.

Well it's stiffer than the stock GT springs, but softer than my H&R Race springs were. But that's because the Cobras have different spring rates than the GTs. If you cut yours then it would feel pretty much the same.

They were great springs while I had them. By themselves I noticed less nose dive under heavy braking and a flatter car when going through the turns.

Sick stang same color here. This is mine with H&R SSS with no isolators, rough ride feels like a race set up but is perfect in corners.

You got that at a great price. What's the deal on the Bilstien lowering kit. I'm going to lower my SVT Cobra 96 and planned on using the Eibach Pro springs with either Bilstiens or Koni shocks & struts. Hadn't seen a Bilstien sale. Thanks, Dave
