08 mustang Drop kit

I'm looking to drop my 08 mustang GT but not sure what kit to get? I've looked at the steeda ultralites, eibach pro kit, and ford racing k springs but not sure which route to go! I want a moderate drop but I want the back to be level with the front and most drops kits don't do that what's the best route to go? Separate kits for front and back? Let me know what you guys have done. Thanks

I am biased to linear rate springs, or "race springs" because of the predictable handling they offer compared to progressive rate or "street springs" which change from a soft comfortable ride to a stiffer spring rate once the spring compresses. But unless you track or autocross your mustang, the street spring is a great option and they usually lower the car more than race springs. I have H&R race springs on my Bullitt and love them.

Yeah it's just my daily driver so I'll probably do street springs also I've seen so many kits but most seem to still leave the back higher than the front so should I get separate front and rear kits to get it how I want or is there a kit that will do justice? By the way thanks for the reply

My H&R springs lowered my car a half inch more in the front but I think I looks perfect. But you shouldn't have to buy separate front and rear springs to get an even drop. After reading a mustang set up book by Sean Highland, I went with a kit that lowered the car a half inch more on the front because this creates downforce on the front end a helps high speed handling.

Steeda makes a great product. You should be happy with those. Oh, and thank you, I love my car and try to keep it real clean.
