need help for a friend

Yeah, my buddies got a 96 GT and he wants to upgrade his suspension. What springs are good for the GTs if he doesnt want a REALLY bumpy ride, but he wants great handling? Any ideas? I mentioned the bullitt kit but it seemed to pricey for him.. anyone got any other input?

yeah it should raise any cause his sidewall on his tires will be smaller to accomodate for the larger rim diameter. Itll be the same amount of Rim/Tire... there will just be less tire

thats gonna look great brent

I will have to say Great handling comes at reduced comfort. That is a fact. There is mnid of the road springs and struts. but if you dont want to feel any bumps dont get C springs or drop below 1.5
