Lowering my car

Im planning on lowering my 16 gt. Any suggestions? I was thinking on just getting some lowering springs. Or will that mess up the stock shocks and struts?

That depends on how low you go. An inch or inch and 1/2 on both front and rear, lowering springs alone will likely suffice.
DO get it aligned right away though.

Lowering my car

I just added Steeda sport progressive. 2015 GT non performance pkg. no damper upgrade / no strut plate (?) upgrades. (Someday maybe but I'm very happy now.)

These lower the car 1.125 in front and 1 in rear They are two stage and offer comfortable ride (stock like but better handling) in normal situations and the second stage comes into play during cornering and during fast launches and stops. The car now has barely any nose dive or squat during acceleration or hard braking. This is directly related to springs I'm sure.

Did a few other things so Im experiencing additional improvements at least partially attributable to other components. I'll post in a bit.

I did a lot of research on these springs, and I'm very happy with Steeda. I ordered directly from Steeda (great) but CJ Pony is great too and carries them. They also (CJ Pony) has a YouTube video of installation. I can recommend these springs without any reservation.

I am new to the site. I have been out of the car game for about 10 years and finally got a mustang again. I have a 2015 gt w/PP. I love the Steeda stuff. I want to buy lowering springs but I want to hide some of that open wheel well with 19 in rims. Do the Steeda springs lower it enough or do I need to get something else? It is a daily driver so I still want it to be drive able on normal roads. I just want the look with a little better performance. If anyone has some pics with Steeda springs and the stock PP wheels that would be awesome. Thanks.

Hey TJ,
Is there a different specification for the UK GT? Mine is on order and want to get the ride dropped slightly to close the arch gap, but keep the stock dampers. I don't want the pogo stick effect so nothing major, probably something like 15-20mm. What can you recommend?
Here's one of the first UK GTs I saw yesterday at my local dealer - looks great but rides too high. Thanks in advance!

I wrote about the pogo'ing effect. This is on the Yolo Causeway. It's bouncy as it is, for any car. It's just amplified a bit now.

I'm glad I dropped an inch. 20 mm would not do much. I could stick w as is under normal conditions, but I want a smooth, firm, high perf ride at speed, so I'm going to upgrade the dampers now cause I just want to get it right and done.

I recommend doing it all at once (springs/dampers/jounce bumpers/ caster/camber plates). Unless you really like wrenching. I'll have do do another alignment as well as redo just about everything. Hopefully no new issues.

The Causeway will still cause some bounce -on any car- but expect much less w new dampers.
