Lowering

Is it possible to lower your car with just springs, or should one buy a whole kit, like the eibach?

Re: Lowering

As long as you do not slam the car and you have a smaller drop then you can get away with just springs. If you are going to install springs and take it to a shop then we would recommend doing the Shocks/Struts with it to save on install $$.



Steeda springs are American made by and American company. Steeda Autosports offers the largest complete line of Ford based parts and accessories in the world today.

Well, the back I believe was already lowered, so I just installed the front springs and it dropped 1.5". I'm really happy with the stance, but here's a pic of the way it sits now. Let me know what ya think.

Ride Quality slightly harder but overall handling improved alot. Alot less body roll and less squat in accelerating and braking. Very happy. I will eventually get a adjustable Panhard bar and Eibach Camber bolts before alignment is done.
