FRPP "B" Springs, with or without isolators

So my tax return is in and i am about ready to pull the trigger on lowering springs.

My plan is to run this setup on my 98 GT Vert:
-FRPP "B" Springs
-No isolators (will wrap spring ends in tape to reduce noise)
-MM C/C Plates
-new struts all 4 corners

What do you guys think of this setup? I am at a loss on whether or not I should run isos or not, I am hoping to get a perfect ride height on the first go.

Heard it drops your car a bit more without isos but also heard they make noise

I had 0 noise issues when running my H&R springs without isolators. How much do the B springs drop?

FRPP "B" Springs, with or without isolators

Removing the isolators will drop more, which is why I want to remove them.

The B springs seem to drop about 1.25" in front and a little less in rear. I want a bit of a rake because I think the SN95 body style will look good that way.

I'm just unsure because mines a vert so it's a bit heavier and will drop differently. It's good to know that no isolators hasn't been an issue for you I'm probably not going to run them

I cant comment on the B springs, but I installed the C springs on my 96gt with new isolators and the front was higher than the back. I put the factory worn out isolators on the front and it had a great stance and ride. (Front was slight lower than the back) My 2nd 96gt had eibachs progressive rate and it was a lil lower but couldnt compare to the ride of the C springs.

See now im not sure if I should do the B or C springs...I am thinking B because they are progressive and better for ride quality. And considering mine is a convertible I really don't want springs that are gonna give me a harsh ride

Well I just pulled the trigger on the C springs. After lots of researching and thinking I decided that I likes the way the c springs sit better and I wanted a firmer ride.

I am not going to run isolators and for now I'm not doing c/c plates and I'm going to see how it drives.

B and C springs, they are lowering springs made by Ford Racing, one is a progressive rate spring and one is a standard rate. They sell them on American Muscle
