Which lowering springs have the best handling?

I'm in the market for some lowering spring. I don't only want to drop it, but I want them to improve the handling because I'm starting to race Autocross. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

If ur doing autocross why not go with a full setup, lowering springs arent gonna do much for u other than make it bumpier on a straight away.

If your serious look into full coilovers. Whatever you get, get a set of matched struts. New bushings go a long ways too.

Agreed with above. Sprigs will lower center of gravity and will help a little but you'd be better off with some sort of package deal, sway bars dampers springs panhard rod control arms etc

Re: Which lowering springs have the best handling?

My first question is how much experience with performance driving do you have? If you're just starting out, stay stock for a while & concentrate on driving skill. You also need to keep in mind once you put springs on it, you are now out of stock class.

As to which springs, I'm still researching those myself. So I'm no help.

Re: Which lowering springs have the best handling?

Can I show you a video and then see if this is what you are looking for?

MM&FF at the Test Track with a 5.0 Steeda Blog

This will greatly improve your handling without breaking the bank. Our owner, Dario Orlando, was big into racing. He has a great understanding of how to improve a Mustang for the better.

PM or email me at tim@steeda.com if I can provide you with pricing and some options to get you to your goal.

Best Regards,

TJ

That's Awesome!

Has anyone reported any noise issues with this setup? Like clunks or pops?

Been off of the forums for a while but just installed steeda springs, upper and lower control ams, front and rear sway bars, and adjustable panhard bar. From the opinion of a suspension novice my stang is like a frozen rope now. Cannot believe how much better this car will drive; definately much more in control of the car. Steeda was great to deal with and brandon, who is on these forums, was outstanding!!

I have not had the pleasure of driving a 5.0 with this type of set-up, but based on the feedback we have received by this customer and many others, there are no real issues.

Best Regards,
