Nice job. I'm getting the SR springs myself. Wondering though, do you really need to replace the shocks with that little of a drop? Will the stock shocks do OK ride wise after dropping?

You should replace them other wise the ride quality will be so stiff everytime you hit a bump or pot hole on the road. They have some new SR shocks and Struts for not alot of money and I m sure those would be better ride quality then the stock parts.

Really depends on the mileage on your car and current condition of your shocks/struts.

I ran the SR springs on the Mach for a little while with the factory dampeners and the ride was fine. They handled the ~1.5" drop with no issues with 58k miles on them.

Biggest concern with using SR springs is whether you will be able to get your suspension geometry back to factory spec without caster camber plates.
The factory plates offer hardly any adjustment, and a 1.5" drop is right on the edge. Some cars can get away without aftermarket plates, others don't.

My 03 had new a "little better than OEM" dampners on it and with the SRs and no isos its rides pretty good. Not a whole lot of change. Mine only gets a couple thousand miles a year so I figure this set of dampners will work until I want to upgrade them or dont have the car anymore. For mine I got a set of Eibach camber bolts for the alignment and it was put back into spec. CC plates are the best route, but the camber bolts worked for me for now. Shop that did alignment had no issues using a higher quality camber bolt like the Eibachs I used. My 96 has H&R supersports and MM CC plates, really a better option if cost isnt an issue. And if you get plates only get MM ones!
