SR performance springs from AM

Anyone have any experience with these on? I searched the forum and didn't see much about them, seems like everyone suggests eibach, BMR, etc. What was the actual drop? How's the ride? Have you had any other springs and how do they compare? I'm not really looking to go crazy low as I deal with a million speedbumps on a daily basis and the roads in ATL are terrible, but I do want a more aggressive stance and better handling without sacrificing ride quality too much as the GT is my main sled. Thanks for the input.

I had the SR Springs on for about 300mi. and had to take them off as the ride was to harsh. The drop/stance was nice but I didn't like them. It may have been that they didn't work well with my Steeda Pro-Action shocks/struts. It has good reviews on A.M. as I hear a lot of people are using them with the stock stuff but I wouldn't. I have BMR springs now and love the ride. I've also had Eibach pro-kit & I have Steeda springs for track duty. All three off these are better for the street/track than the SR springs. Just my .02

The BMR springs are well worth the money.

no first hand experience, but I hear the spring rates are pretty high with these, giving as mentioned a harsh ride

No first hand experience here either (I use BMR springs) but a well respected mustang shop in my area dislikes the SR performance springs. I didn't ask a specific reason though.

GrayGoose,

First off, love the ride... That stance is exactly what I'm looking for. (Love the blacked out headlights too, I just ordered all around vinyl tint for mine from anchor-room.com to be installed this weekend)

I'd like to keep the ride as close to stock as possible, but I know with the drop and 20's that I will have to sacrifice some. How would you say the ride is compared to stock?

Thanks for the compliments, I feel it tighter, suspension wise, nothing crazy.
But it feels good to me, with the stock
19"s, 20"s not sure I know it will change
Some ride feel. But don't think that much, just a little harsher ride probably.

I've got sr springs on my 06 gt and I like them, I have no issues with them. I can definitely feel a difference in handling. The ride is ok but not too bad. I think it lowered my car perfectly by getting rid of my wheel gap. I think over all it's a good product for the price.

Bwillingham10,

The SR Performance springs work great for a daily driver IMO. You'll definitely experiencing better handling and less body roll overall. The ride height drop is right at 1.5" for GT coupes. I've also found they tend to work well with the stock struts/shocks, compared to other aftermarket lowering springs. Of course, upgraded suspension dampeners will only help.

If you have other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!

Shane

Hey AJcruz1,

I'm really surprised you felt the SR springs gave a rougher ride than the BMR springs. I've literally only experienced and heard feedback of the opposite effect. I'm wondering if this has something to do with the struts you're using. As I can't say I'm familiar with the feel of that particular combo. I'm most familiar with Koni STR.T dampeners with SR springs or other aftermarket springs.

Thanks for the feedback though. I'd like to look into this more, as there's gotta be an underlining reason.

Shane

I have the SR performance lowering springs w/ iso's removed...

I LOVE my ride height, front can sit slight lower tho... (Hate wheel gap)

As for the ride. With springs installed it was pretty similar. Two weeks later I removed ISO to lose another .3 in and
The ride became extremely bouncy (maybe the springs broke in?). I'd still highly Recommend.


Also btw.. I have JM adj Panhard
Bar also idk if that's relevant though haha. Click image for larger version

not sure why you'd be surprised, the rates on the SR springs are much higher than the BMR's...................

Honestly, I'm less familiar with the BMR lowering springs than any other manufacturer. I'm not aware of their spring rates, as they do not list them on the BMR product page. Do you know what the rates are? I'd be interested if you have them.

Thanks!

Shane
