Springs and shocks

I saw some body only replace the springs, but my friends told me should install shocks and struts, too, what is ur guys opinions? How is the feeling only change springs? Does it can go to racing beginning group?

I think your missing some important details, what year is your car? What springs were you looking at? What are your goals for the car? Is it your daily driver?

You can do just lowering springs, but you'll be shooting yourself in the foot. Your handling will be worse and you could potentially cause $1,000's of repairs down the road without a UCA and panhard rod to correct the new spring's alignment.

See this thread for proof: eibach lowering spring problem

I'd suggest springs/shocks/struts/UCA/LCA/panhard rod all at once to do the job right.

If you want to lower the car right the first time........ Panhard Bar, LCA relocation brackets (might as well do actual LCAs at the same time as well), CC plates, Shocks, Struts, adjustable UCA

Would be nice but that's quite a bit of $$$$ at once! I started with the SR lowering springs and panhard bar and eventually work my way to doing the rest. The springs with the panhard bar feel fine and handling has much improved over stock. I'll do the alignment in a week.

I just did the Eibach Pro kit yesterday and its a mild drop.While all the stuff that was listed is nice and in the long helpful, its not necessary all at once. Do it in stages.

Do you have any before and after pics? I am interested in this kit. I don't want a drastic drop, but I want to get rid of the 4X4 gap that I have on my daily driver...

Sorry Im not much for taking pictures...

I can tell you this though, Ive had several lowered cars of all heights and the Pro kit for me is perfect. I swapped out my 18" stockers for some 20's and put in the springs and I love it. Mine is a daily driver as well and trust me Ive had "slammed" cars and its not fun to drive every day. The pro kit is a nice medium for me. To be honest if youre keeping the 18's you might want to look at some thing with a little more drop. The Eibach's are a mild drop and you might not get rid of all the wheel gap with these and 18's.

Forgot to mention CC plates... Def those too.

I had an owner of a Mustang perf shop mention I should do it in stages too but why? So you can charge me more for overall installation or "So you can feel the difference of each part?"

I'd still rather do it all at once and do it myself at that.

I've got 19's. The Perf Package comes with the 19" Matchbox wheels with Pirelli tread. I'm thinking it might be a good drop for my set up and middle aged, run down body...

+1 sr springs with panhard bar handles and rides great. 5900 miles on my oem struts and shocks no issues so far.

Anything lower than 1.5 and yes LCA, shocks/struts etc should be done, but at 1.5 or less OEM stuff is just fine with adjustable panhard bar. Good to here your still going strong after 5900. There are many people that have done springs alone(1.5 or less) and are all fine. To have the ultimate ride comfort with any dropped car doing the whole suspension is ideal if you have the wallet for it, but its not necessary.

I have a middle aged run down body as well and the springs ride nice. I havent had them on but 24 hours but the ride doesnt seem to stiff at all. It was worth it.
