Springs

Anyone lower their Pony yet? What did you use, Eibach, Ford, or another brand? Which kit? What have you seen as pros and cons after install. Did you use caster camber plates?

Re: Springs

As long as I have to go over the speed bumps I encounter on a daily basis, I will forego the urge to lower my car...even though it looks so much better

Re: Springs

I went with the steeda sport springs. Not a dramatic drop maybe an
Inch. Perfect for a driver no worries about scraping the bottom
And really improved the cornering.

I had the Pro-kit on my 04. Just wondering if anyone went with something different for the 2011's. I only want to go the inch not the inch and a half.

Thanks all.

I went with the eibach sport lines. They are great springs but a little bumpy ride. It lowered it about 1.25 inches. Not to bad overall im very happy with it i can take it around corners at high speeds with no problem so i enjoy that.

Re: Springs

Do you have to swerve around potholes to save your life?

Re: Springs

the spring rate as well as shortening the travel of the shock/strut (pushes it further into the shock/strut body when you lower the car) cause the harsher ride.
