Just logged in and saw your question. I actually jut had mine done on Tuesday. I'm giving the springs a few more days to settle in and comparison pictures will be available.

Check out Americanmuscle.com. You should buy the H&R springs and strut tower brace combo. I didn't see it when I bought mine last week.

Good point if you're gonna build a competitive car. But if you just want to close the awkward gap, eliminate nose dive, improved cornering, I think a set of springs is enough.

Again, if you plan to build a track car, go all out

Basically going for an even combo of looks and performance. Coil overs would be awesome but that's a little out of the budget. How much did it cost to get yours springs installed?

If money wasn't an issue, most definitely.

I disagree, coilovers are the best way to lower your car and have the best ride comfort. Yes they are great for the track but they are great for the street also.

That being said I recently bought a set of SR performance springs not yet installed

Lol $200 to get mine installed. 2 labor hours on the front, 1 hour on the rear. Sound reasonable.

With 1.5 inches drop, an alignment is almost useless.

Here's the comparison with mine. Kinda hard to tell since the car is black but after you do this, you do need to have it re-cambered and have them check the toe as we'll. mine was really off after the install.

I had H&R Super Sports. Very agressive lowered stance. I have these for sale, too. Recently traded in my stang...

Here's a link to one of my sale threads on another site if you're interested.

I bought the Ford Racing Handling Package. It came with everything and dropped the car 1". Didn't have to put on Panhards as the car didn't drop that much. Also got an alignment. The cars handles way better now, that is If I don't drive on country back roads. The price for lower suspension means smooth ride on the open highway. I was told if your going to put on springs, put everything on. Total for parts and install, $1700.

That is true! It's quite bumpy with just the springs Installed but it handles so much better with them compared to stock. To be honest IMO it handles about just as good as my rx8 did. And that thing handled like it was on rails!!

I ordered the same springs , they have a huge drop 1.7 front 1.9 rear and the car looks amazing once installed as I can see by your pic , I also ordered the eibach camber bolts as I'm sure my camber will be way out after the install without those bolts adjustment won't be possible me thinks. In the next week or so I will get them installed when my mechanic has time . I already have all the parts can't wait for the install . I'll post pics once there in.
