Hit me with some opinions on my car? Thinking about lowering it 1.5".

Like your set up, that thing will look so mean if you lower it. I say yes

You really need painted rocker moldings with those bumpers. While you're at it throw on some painted mirror covers too. Lowering would look good but is more expensive to get right and will just be for looks... Won't really utilize the performance aspect out of lowering as much as a GT unfortunately.

Lowering your car is unfortunately more than just getting the springs, it's kinda "snowballs" into an entire suspension overhaul because your going to need new camber plates, panhard bar, and shocks, and if your gonna spend that much money, might as well throw in some anti roll bars and LCAs. I think it would look really good, but it's going to be a lot of money. Ask yourself how long you're gonna have that car and base your answer off of that

Why wouldn't he get the same performance out of lowering springs as a GT?

I'm not talking about just springs.

Neither am I trying to target V6 guys either... I had the 4.0 as well before my GT.

I'm just saying an aftermarket suspension overhaul is more cost effective for GT's. That's it.

Like Texas22 said, if you plan on having the car for the long-run, it may be more worth it for you.

Thanks for the input guys. I am trying to eventually get a gt and sell this one. But in the meantime I still enjoy doing things to this one I think im just going to get springs and a panhard bar and see how it goes.
