Front Springs

Is their any springs that lower the car less than 1" inch in the front?
I heard boss oem springs are lower than gts, would those fit my car?

No I don't think there is but even if there was it wouldn't be worth the money and time to put them on

Yeah. 1 inch is like the minimum. Why do you want such a small drop anyway. Im failing to grasp the point.

His body kit prevents a larger drop.

Exactly, only thing i can do is either just drop the rear one inch and call it a day, or put in the boss oem springs in the front. Anyone know if the brembo track pack springs are any different from the stock gt?

When I first lowered my car last year I went with the roush suspension kit and it lowered it about 3/4 in front and 1 inch rear it wasnt enough so I went with BMR, but I still have the springs if your interested.

I think u can s get away with an inch drop in the front, just make sure wherever u go, u always back into parking spots and come into angles on speed bumps and driveways and u should be fine

Yea I hear u, I believe u have another DD, maybe depending where your going, u use that... I guess it's easy for me to say since I drive the DD 90% of the time... It's rough around my area, and I really don't NEED the Stang but I still love it

So after a lot of research I found out that the hieght difference between the boss and a gt up front is 11mm, which is a great approx. 1/2 drop up front.
So I will be getting those leaving me a 4 1/2 clearance on the sides of my splitter and in the middle of the of the splitter 3 3/4
On the rear ill be doing p spring
With my koni yellows and steeda heavy duty mounts
Already have bmr lca and bmr relocation brackets and bmr panhard bar installed

And to fill the gap even more on the rear I'm changing the rear nitto invos 295/35/20 to 305/35/20 nitto 555r
I can finally do a happy dance!

Those tires aren't going to fill the gap anymore. They both have a 35 sidewall.. Unless for some reason the invos run thinner..

It may help a very little bit. But a 305 is not going to bulge barely at all on a 11 inch rim. Mine barely bulge on a 19x10.

A 305 tire is taller. It'll take up some gap, but Ozzie...you've got a 20x11, just go with a 315-35-20 invo. That tire is made for a 20x11 rim. It fits perfect.

Im seriously doubt you are going to notice much hieght difference, if any at all by going from a 295 to a 305. Especially sticking with the same manufacturer. But i agree, go with 315.

I would but they i want the 555r and they are only built to 305, nitto street radial 315 is really meant for drag and with all the raining in south florida i really dont want to end wraped around a tree

Thats what i was thinking too. But he said he wants something that is decent in the rain. Ozzy check out the regular nt05 tho.. It comes in a 315/35/20. Sick looking tire IMO.

Well if you want good wet weather performance, the 555r is not gonna be a good choice either. Its a street radial. You would want the regular 555 which i dont believe comes in a 305. I think a 285 is the biggest. The nt05 does however come in a 315. Both are great tires. I personally like the look of the nt05 better.

Thats what im saying the 555r's are not meant for rain either. The "r" is basically the race tire. The nt05r and the 555r are both street radials and will equally suck in the rain. If you're looking for a good wet tire you need the regular 555 or nt05. Cant go wrong with either one. But the regular 555 does not come as wide as you want it.
