I'm new to SN95s. All I've ever owned was coyotes lol. My 98 is my daily driver and it has blue springs on it. Have no clue what they are but they have white writing on them and I just hope they aren't SR Lol.

No worries I figured as much, occasionally we get the S197 crowd recommending parts like BMR so it's pretty easy to spot.

I think Steeda and H&R both run blue springs.

BMR does make springs for 79-04 mustangs. However they are only a 1" drop.

I dont know if the bumpsteer is absolutely needed, i dont have it and dont have any issues with my H&Rs at all. May need CC plates, i know on my 96 the tech told me that they could have got it very, very close to stock spec without them, but they made it much easier. If you do get CC plates get nothing but Maximum Motorsports- DONE

And do the ball joints while your in there. I did a set of Moog ball joints, wish i had gone with the Steedas for the little extra drop but i didnt really know of them yet or have the time to order them and wait.

Bumpsteer and X2 balljoints are a MUST HAVE for you & yours safety, trust me. You do not want to find out by running into car next to you or worse.
The X2 balljoints are built so strong, they will be functional to the last of days.

I was installing the Steeda ballpoints and bump steer when the broken spring thing came to light. I have MM C/C plates already and Tokico struts.

By the way I've never seen an Eibach feel like this and I have used them in the past with great success... are you sure your pigtails or pointed in the right direction on install?

I just now drove my car for the first time with Steeda springs and x2 ball joints and I gotta tell you it hugs the road better than ever. I'll be installing the bump steer kit next. Very happy with Steeda

Which Eibach's are these? Seems odd that any good name brand would do something like this. I have Eibach Sportlines and haven't had any probs, but I don't daily my Mach anymore.

They were installed on the car when I purchased it so I can't guarantee that they were properly installed. It is my daily driver though. I have the Steeda x2 ball joints in there now so I will look into their springs. I have a cheap set of springs in there currently with isolator sand the front end squeaks when driving so I want to make the change soon.
