Well installing springs isn't the hardest thing in the world but it's atleast a 2 person job and a huge pain in the ***. I found the hardest part was getting the plastic things out of the struts and getting the stock panhard bar out is massive *****. But either way it only took me 3-4 hrs with a buddy who had already done a spring swap twice so you could easily do the roush in a afternoon if your worried about install

Getting rear springs only is like hooking up with a fine girl and halfway thru the action saying "well i am done, good bye".
Come on just go all the way and just deal with been lower and drive careful. If some one ask you what suspension u got what are u going to say, oh no i just have half a suspension done :/ that is a down grade or just leave it stock like an old skol muscle car. Just IMO

Charming simile but, I'd say the bigger error is the folks who slap lowering/stiffer springs on without saving the money for some good shocks and struts to go with them. After tires, the shocks and struts are where the biggest handling gains can be made in most factory mass-produced cars, including this one.

I'm personally happy with the ride height, (after 55d fix) as the BBP 19s fill the holes pretty well and I don't have to worry about a belly-landing on the cratered surface streets where I live.

Oh yea i always said i wouldnt do springs without adjustable shock and struts, during the day and normal driving i put it soft as hell but when hitting the track it gets F1 hard and Precise.

Do a 315-35-20 and a 275-35-20 up front. Get some 20x9.5 and 20x11 rims. Then get 55d springs for the rear. Your car will look like its lowered a lot even though the rear is only lowered a 1/2 inch.

These are both 315-35-20 rear and 275-35-20 up front. At least I know for sure on the red one. The red gt has sport springs as well. The rims are 9.5 wide in front and 11 in rear. A 315 will work on a 10.5 but it looks a little sloppy. The side wall spills over just a little. It's perfect on a 11 width though. 295 or 305 would be great for a 10.5 rim.

I have 295-35-20 in the rear and no drop. See the third pic below.

Actually...with those rims. I would do a 255-35-20 and a 305 or 295-35-20. The 275 might be to much for the 9 width, unless you don't mind a little bulge. Nitto invos and reasonably priced and they've got a 295-35-20 and a 255-35-20.
