Lowering Springs

Considering getting a friend lowering springs for his Mustang, I am not so sure about them. I want to know do they affect ride quality? And does anyone regret putting them on?

Its gonna change the stiffness a bit but thats something that comes with the territory. If he wants a smoother ride then he will need a full suspension and not just springs.

Lowering Springs necessities.

I just recd for lowering a 2011 GTCS convert: 1) Ford Racing lowering sprgs, 2) BMR adjustable panhard bar, and 3) a set of jounces. I will be installing soon, but I'd like to know b4 I do if there is anything I'm missing? Appreciate your input. Thanks.

Here is a video that we put together regarding our Springs:



You can use just the springs, the panhard bar is advised the recenter the rear under the car, it gets offset to the side when lowering with the factory bar. Any panhard bar equipped car is going to shift when lowering the car, in a way a panhard bar is a pendulum…

Lowering with just the springs will cause excessive camber and uneven tire wear up front, that is why we use our strut mounts, in addition to being stronger they have room for camber adjustment, the stock ones do not.

You can reach me at tim@steeda.com if you would like to talk about your suspension/lowering needs.

Best Regards,

TJ
