Lowering spring decision

I know I want to get eibach on my mustang cause I know there a really good brand. I don't know if I want the pro kit which is a front drop of 1.0 and rear drop of 1.5 or the sport kit which is front 1.4 drop and rear 1.5 drop. Any one have either? If so can u post pics and give advice it would be greatly appreciated. This is my car now Click image for larger version

I would suggest the BMR springs and matching components.

I'll agree with GB however, it all depends on your goals in the end. A spring that slams your car will need more supporting components to correct the Geometry throughout your suspension, pro long the life of your rear and give you a more enjoyable ride with an increase in handling. I've put countless suspension systems together for many of my customers without one single complaint yet. Eibach is a good brand for springs but don't stop there, look around, many other great brands.

Do the BMR springs work on the 11+? On their website their lowering spring package says 05-10.

It shows 2005-2014 because they are the same for all those years.

Awesome thank you all for all of the advice! I like the way the sport kit looks a lot. If also like to see some pics of the BMR springs if possible

---------- Post added at 03:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:04 PM ----------

And also will the sport kit from eibach be too low for 20" rims? I have 20"a and measured out the drop and it's cutting it pretty damn close. I don't want to have any issues with that in the future

BMR springs on Brembos and weld RT-S wheels. Crappy cell phone pics hence the different colors.

U shouldn't have a problem with rubbing even with an aggressive drop from sportlines. Another member on here had a super aggressive drop running 285 all around and he had no issues. Obviously that's pushing it, plus u would have to change a lot of suspension parts to compliment such a change in geometry

Eibach Springs? - No Headers!

I put Eibach pro-kit springs on my 2013 GT. It has lowered it enough that I cannot put Full-Length Headers on the car. They will scrape!
The same thing happened with a 2004 Cobra I had I put BBK full-length headers on, the Eibach pro-kit springs, but had to take them back off since the headers scraped everytime I went over a bump, railroad tracks, etc.

That doesn't sound right. I know guys who have there 2011+ stangs lowered and are running BBK, Stainless Works, Kooks, with no problems..lowering kits range from Eibach, to Steeda, to FRPP, etc.....Friend of mine has the Eibach Pro kit with ARH longtubes and has NO clearance issues. One guy even said the K-member and the oilpan sit lower than where his longtubes do. What brand of headers did you attempt?

Eibach pro springs are great. After 16K miles, my front sits 1 1/4" lower than stock. Rear at 1.5" as advertised. Looks great!

What the feeling on Steeda springs? I had them on my focus ST and they were great. Nice stance and not too harsh of a ride.

I had steeda ultralites on my 07 CS. I really like the drop. But I've heard a lot of good things about BMR so that's what I'm going with this time.
