Need? No. Would it be wise? Yes. How many miles are on the car?

I say do the struts and shocks. Piece of mind and overall it'll handle better.

Probably be wise to get new shocks/struts. Do you plan on getting new gt500 strut mounts or caster camber plates?

FYI, if you are looking for shock/struts and want some Koni Yellow Adjustables, I got some brand new I am selling. Also have caster camber plates as well.

Yes ... do it all at once to keep labor costs down & get the best ride at the same time.

You can check out our shocks & struts here - 2011-2014 Mustang Suspension | Steeda Autosports | Free Shipping!

Let me know if I can help assist with pricing or help answer any questions regarding our products.

No, springs are what gives it the ride height. Although you could cut the stock springs or compress 2 coils together that will give you a lower car but will drastically impact ride quality. So if you want to half a** it then yes it's possible but to do it correctly no.

Why are you surprised? It can be done, if you want to ruin your car that is. I did it to my first car, a 1994 grand am, I was 18. Ruined the car, one of the dumbest automotive choices I've ever made lol.

I meant I was surprised no one said you can't do it w/o new springs. I remember back in the day either cutting or torching to lower (never did but buddies did).

On topic I have SR's/Konisand am waiting for a few more parts B4 I lower mine!!!

nice to hear.....I've been scoring parts for a while when I find them at bargains. I'm hoping in the fall after I finish re-doing my bathroom (one project at a time!)
