Right now, I've got them set to just about my former ride hight. BC recommends to preload the load the spring 4mm past hand tight. Then I'll drive it and see how it feels and make adjustments as needed. I'm still waiting for my wheels so I can't really do anything about the ride hight until those come in.

As far as counter balancing my weight, I'm gonna see how much difference it makes when I'm in the car and then I'll adjust accordingly.

Now, you don't get any stance pics until my wheels get here tomorrow!
I will say this much, maximum hight of my coilovers is almost as low as my lowering springs.

So far, no noise, no rubbing, no thuds and the steering feels lighter and the car handles like its on rails!

Dang, I just got in from a early morning cruise. These coilovers are incredible! The ride feels so tuned. I went through a couple of rough patches of road where there are sudden dips, uneven pavement and drop offs.

One of the things I've noticed was when I went over a dip, in the past, the nose would dig in a gravity would pull the car down and then toss the rear end up. That is not the case anymore. The coilovers are much firmer and so there is less bounce. This mustang no longer feels clumsy.

I can't wait to rip it up around corners!

The Cobra springs are slightly softer than my H&Rs which is to be expected from a stock spring, but the Cobras still handle extremely good. I'm hoping to go coil-over in the next year or so.

255/40R17 Hankook Ventus RS3s. Next week I'm switching to a staggered setup, but those will just be for looks

Ok thanks I love the setup you have now I wish mine was a tad lower with a little more low profile tire I have a 1.5 inch drop with 245/45/17 now after I get 18's I would like to get 245/35/18 how do you think that would look

Thanks. I think a 245/35 is a bit small, there isn't gonna be much of a sidewall there. Have you thought about going with a wider tire and a 40 aspect ratio? Compared to my old 245/45s my 255s are only 1-2cms smaller

Do they make 240/40/18 tires if so I may end up doing that

I'm about ready to unsub from this thread, the anticipation is killing me. I'm about ready to have a heart attack. I'm gonna flip the "F" out if all this mystery was for yet another mustang with AMR's. lol
