Need help with lowering my 2013 v6!

I want to purchase lowering springs for my car , I have heard lowering springs can damage and decrease the life of shocks and struts dramatically, and also make the ride bouncy. Is this true? If so is there anything I can adjust or add to the setup to reduce this? I do not want to spend money on coil overs at the moment

You would want to do new struts since they will have better dampening and rebound valving for drop springs as well as a few other add ons like a panrod to get the axle back under center etc. there's a lot more that goes into it unfortunately other then just slapping springs in and it adds up LOL unless you don't care how it rides

I would do a search there's so much info out there it is overwhelming and we are all different and do different things with our cars so it's up to you what are you trying to get out of the drop looks or performance? what are your future plans? Etc.

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 don’t.

Springs, dampers, and mounts all have the same labor so doing them at the same time also saves on labor cost/time and alignments.

You can do Ultra Lite Springs or Steeda Sport Springs by themselves ... but we strongly recommend the panhard bar (not 100% needed), HD Mounts (not 100% needed) ... optional Shocks and Struts for better ride quality”

Let me know If I can help with any additional question?

Best Regards,

Its the Ford performance suspension if iirc. If your car is newer, you could buy the springs, get a lifetime alignment and get the shocks and struts later. Else, I would wait. Hate to chuck good parts.
