Lowering Options on 18's

Hey guys i've done my searching on different forums and such, but i've had a hard time finding concise answers and good pictures lowering on 18's. My plan with this car is keeping it a DD with a track day every once in a while. My goals are to run staggered 18x9/10 with about an inch lower on the front and get the back leveled out.

I've seen 2 different methods, coilovers or springs/LCL/UCL/....etc.

I'm curious to what peoples setups are on 18's and what's they look like

Springs v. Coilover( Void price), which one is better for all around tracking and DD ability with out to much issues?

Can a stang be lowered and not having issues being a daily driver on 18's?

Well youll be pretty low to the ground with 18s and a 1 inch drop. I suppose it could work and im sure alot of people do it but I wouldn't daily drive that.

I've got 18s with adjustable ph, uca, lca's with relo bracket, strange 10 way adjustables, and steeda sports(1"front, 1.25"rear). Rides a little bumpier but not bad. I love it.

I'm lowered about 1" all around and have 18x9/10s. Front has 275/35-18 tires, and rear has 285/35-18s.... No issues at all, and fenders aren't even rolled. I definitely need to lower it another inch or so.

Probably should have mentioned it's a 2012 5.0. Not sure what the difference in the suspension would be compared to the 01 bullit but i feel it's significantly different. Soccerluvr4, ride looks great!

Thanks Black 5.0. Could you get a full side view shot. I think you're pretty much hitting on exactly what i want. I don't want to slam it but i want to close up the wheel gap.

about how much did you end up spending on all suspension mods?

That looks good. Seems like I can do a 1.5 inch front and 2+ in the back on 18's and still get away with it. Looking at Eibach coilovers to do the drop.
