Lowering springs look?

i think you might be bud but it's cool you are entitled to your opinion, maybe you just like the classic sports car look with a little rake on the ***, i mean i do but only on the classics.

i think ur alone on this one. the ones who have a 4x4 stance right now is only because theyre on a budget or saving up to buy all the parts needed to drop it. i prefer the mustang dropped low but at least a 1.5" drop is better than a stock stance

I am actually with you. I don't mind it having a little drop, but I honestly think you can get the right look on most cars with a good wheel and tire package. I lowered my last car and the ride sucked. I always bottomed our on stuff and it was so rough of a ride. The handling difference was amazing but the ride was terrible.

Idk I lowered my old 1996 v6 and I hated it maybe because the wheel were to big for it? (I didn't put them on). I might lower my 02 GT later on but idk I like the bigger stance.

I like the lowered and even stance on Mustangs... Now, if you put fat slicks on the back of any Mustang then the raised *** would look pretty good.

I like the lowered look better myself! Just my opinion.

A little drop is good. Overdone is overkill.

Why do people always say lowered cars rides rough? If you compliment the springs w proper shocks n struts camber plates ect in most cases it rides better than stock... depending on how low u drop it I guess....

I say lowered cars ride rough, because the suspension is stiffer. You feel more in the road. I really like that feeling if it is a car that I don't drive all the time, but I drive the crap out of my mustang and would like not to feel every single bump in the road, just every other (it is a muscle car, you should feel some of them)

I dont know why they set them so high from the factory,,im fixin to do a 1 1/2 dropp..Even all your high end cars are low and tucked..I bet it will handle better too ,,i hope

I drive around 150 miles a day... as of right now my car rides like hell but that's due to having stock s&s... wheel size and or tire size plays a huge roll into quality of ride... FRPP k springs w 18s and matching components feel much much better than stock and you don't feel every bump... I've been in several cars w this set up

Used to be 20s, those things had to go. I have 18s now thank God!! They made such a difference in ride quality. The last car I lowered was not a mustang, so that can make a huge difference I am sure.
