What sort of driving do you plan on doing? Looks are subjective as well. I liked my H&R Race springs when I had them and they handled great other having some serious nose dive (though not as bad as stock)

It's my daily driver but stiff or soft doesn't matter that much to me

Ok let me, rephrase this, do you plan on racing the car? Do you purely want it for looks? Is it gonna be a show car?

I had the eibach pro kit and the ford racing c springs on my 96gts. Liked them both but a lil more drop with the eibachs.

How bad are the roads in your area? I'm lowered 2.5" in front and 2" in rear and only scrape on bad speed bumps and some driveways. I didn't scrape at all with my Race springs, looks are all subjective though so find the ride height you like and go from there.

H&R Super Sports are pretty nice. They aren't a terribly rough ride since they're progressive rate springs. I have a buddy who had them on his old ride.

Tein S tech's will drop 2.5, but I have cut springs on my ride.

SPRINGS

Did anyone who changed to Lower Springs, have to change their Shocks also?

OK, Thanks for that Info Doe Rae mi. I haven't done it yet, but I heard from a friend that I would have to change the Shocks also. So I put it off for awhile.

You'll have to sooner or later. But no need to rush it. Just wait till those shocks go bad
