Well both my car and Slows car are currently sitting on cut springs with no issues (other than rubbing cause of how low we are) but if you want a real lowering spring then check out H&R or Eibach. How low do you want to go? And what sort of handling characteristics are you looking for out of the car?

Aren't those the same as the Bullitt springs? Or am I thinking of the B springs? I would honestly go with something with a lower drop and a higher spring rate than the Ford Racing springs

Yeah I think they're Mach 1/bullitt springs

You wouldn't have to get cc plates with those at lease or x2 ball joints and thousand other things you need to buy when lowering lol

True, and I forgot about your reason behind lowering. The B springs should rode a bit better than your current ones

I use Foxbody shocks. I'm 1.5 inches lower. I didn't need camber plates. KYB's are $22/each for the back and $42/each for the fronts. Factory 94-04 replacement shocks blow out once lowered. I can post the size and travel distance if you want.

I finally got my Parking spot on the apt so I can lower away!!! That's why I've been reading up on it lol.

I prefer good weight transfer to just lowering though

Maybe foxbody springs mos talked about ^^

You should try taking some turns on a nicely set up car. Mine handles great for what it is

Been wondering about these...

Did you get camber bolts, gt500 bumpstops, panhard bar and LCAs too?

I'm just hesitant to spend $200 on something I want and then have to spend another $500 on associated parts for it.

1 inch and 1/4 lower springs and you only have to add F/R shocks..

I did the SR springs last week, I plan to do the entire suspension custom so CC plates are already planned. I do however need them as my camber in bad. For the money though the springs are great.

Thats the Fronts. Shop around for 93 Mustang GT 5.0 Rears.. I have KYB Excel-G's on the rear. $22/each. I love the ride. Absorbs the bumps and holds its position afterwards nicely

I would've used Tokico-D's or Bilsteins if I was more concerned about cornering but I heard the ride is stiffer with those.

I can vouch for the D-Specs riding firm. But they do ride a lot better than my stock shocks did at my current ride height

So I'm sure this info is available but... does anyone know how much to cut springs for 1.5" drop?
I think I want H&R SS springs which claim to give a 1.5" drop front and rear, but I want to see how it will look first before I spend the money LOL.

IMO I would spend the money on a new 1.25" drop springs. Less headache and less other parts.

The only problem I have is visualizing what the car will look like with different drops in fractions of an inch. I'm used to trucks where 2"/3" drop almost looks factory, and a 4"/6" drop is common place.

Thanks for the info on the shocks too BTW.
