lowering springs?

I'm looking into getting lowering springs for my 2014 mustang. Just wanted to know what you guys suggested getting/what you have & what your drop is. Thanks!

Keep in mind that by lowering, you may develop driveshaft noises (usually when lowering 1.5 inches or more). Also, lowering may require other suspension replacement.

It's best to talk to the tech group before ordering. American Muscle has an excellent group of techs that can steer you with all that's required to lower your Mustang. No doubt Dan from AM will read this and chime in.

And you have enough posts to ask Dan via a PM for the discount code.

It will effect other suspension stuff like struts, alignment and PHB height too.
These will need to b addressed after changing ride heights.

+1 and for starters, you'll definitely need an "adjustable panhard bar."

I'm glad to see you're going to lower your Mustang. Mustangs have always had a ton of wheel gap, especially the 2011+ Stangs. When I first got my 2011 GT, I lowered it the next day! Besides cutting down on the wheel gap, you're going to improve handling, traction, cut down on 95% of wheel hop, it will also help with nose diving etc..

I lowered my car on the Eibach Sportlines and they're one of the more drastic lowering kits. When doing this, I went with a Pan hard bar and adjustable upper control arm. When lowering your car its going to throw off the geometry of the rear so it won't be perfectly centered, a pan hard bar will fix that easily. Also, your pinon angle is going to be off as well (if you go lower than 1.5") but an upper control arm will fix that just fine.

This is just some recommendations! You could get away with not doing these things at first and drive around without causing any damage, if you're on a tight budget. I did for a few weeks and didn't cause any problems!

I hope this helps. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance!

-Dan
