Need to switch springs. Advice?

Well I love the drop that ford K springs give me, but I need new springs with different rates that are more friendly for a DD.

Right now I have 05-10 koni yellows in gt500 mounts and I want a 1.5 inch drop. What's the best advice for a better set of springs?

Those Ford K-Springs ride like crap.

Go BMR and don't look back.

What's the spring rate though? I've only seen the one on LMR but that one says 1-1.5

Any ideas on how sport lines feel from eibach? I know they go 1.6-2.0

If the BMR get real close to 1.5 on all ends then I won't hesitate. It's a specific rate rather then progressive. Don't know how much effect that truly will have on DD and cornering

I have eibach's pro kit. The pro kit is no better or worse than stock for my car but I think you have to consider in going lower that you're sometimes giving up hitting bumps softly for the beauty of a lower car. I love the way mine looks and feels.

I'm using Sportlines on my Mustang, and I think the spring rate is more than my TrakPak springs. I believe the Eibach's are 180 front and like 120-220 for the rear.
My stock TrakPak springs were a little too soft for me and if you drive on a lot of ruff roads these may be too stiff for you......but they do really carve the corners....at speed!
This picture shows the car with GT500 wheels and track tires, 19's in front and 20's in the rear.

Yeah. Houston has very uneven roads. I just got sick of feeling every like crack. Literally, every crack. I loved how it felt in hard corners though.

Need to switch springs. Advice?

I've had the Eibach sportlines for about two weeks and love them. Granted u do feel a lot more bumps, but the ride, the cornering at higher speeds and the look when it sits outweigh a few bumps
