Lowering Springs ?

I am looking to lower my 2011 Performance Pack 3.7. I was wondering what your recommendations were and if you have installed springs on yours. If so can you guys post up some pics? That's in advance everyone. Also I'm looking to get the H&R Super Sport Springs. Anyone have these or recommend not getting this brand? I have never lowered a car, but I really am lookin to get this one a lil closer to the ground

I'm getting some S&R lowering springs, Some Shelby take off's Shocks and struts and then caster chamber plates and my LCA relocation brackets. That's all you need to do a proper lower.

Some what true but the bolts get u back to specs within the min/max tolerances. Imo u only need c plates if u slam ur car lets say if u get coil overs and lower the front end by mpre than 2".

So you just bought the bolts then went to ford and had them do the alignment?

I've got eibach pro-kits. Stance is pretty good. A little bit lower would be perfect though in terms of looks but going too low can be a problem, especially around here in NYC...

Am I crazy for thinking about getting Steeda Ultralight springs and just adding an adjustable pan hard bar?

Not at all. Steedas a good place. I've gotten a few things from them including my tune. I actually had some of their springs (got for free) sold them because I already had the eibach. And with the panhard would be perfect. You'll get that nice stance without sacrificing ride quality. Go for it!

Now I have to ask CYCLON37.... how do you like that tune? steeda is just 2 hours from my house and well worth the drive if the tune is as great as I think it would be.... thoughts?

Oh, thanks for the springs input. I will be ordering very soon.

No complaints with the tune. Definitely felt an increase over stock. Shift point are much improved and smoother. It's just the mail order tune. Everyone goes with the Bama tunes. Wanted to be different and Steeda is great. If Steeda is that close, getting a tune from them might be easier. And if you ever had any problems, they're close by. Maybe they could even give you a deal on a dyno tune! If I could go back, I'd get my car dyno tuned instead. Will probably do that next year if I don't sell my car for something else.

I have the ultralights. They drop lower than the eibach pros which is why I went with them. No phb was needed.

Really? I thought it was necessary to keep your rear axle centered properly.

Yup. Did an alignment and it went right back to spec. From what I've gathered they are necessary if you do a major drop

Everyone's car is different. Seems some need the panhard and some don't. Best bet is to get the springs and alignment and see how it sits.
