lowering the ecoboost

I've been looking around for lowering springs for the ecoboost and can't seem to find anything. i know for sure i have to get some springs where the front is a bit lower. the 2.3 motor is light compared to any other mustang motor so dropping it 1 inch all around won't look good. debating on these options, Lowers 1.125" Front/1"Rear or Lowers 1.5" Front/1.3" Rear or 1.1” Rear - 1.0”. I'm really leaning towards the 1.5 and 1.3 just because the ecoboost motor is super light and the front end always looks like its launching. lol any advice will help.

hopefully my wheels finally get here by the end of this week or early next week and I'll post more pics.

As far as the lowering springs, their amazing!! you can't really tell in the pictures but it lowered to the point where I have no wheel gap. Which is what I was going for.

What's up Andy! We literally just had this video loaded up the other day. Our buddy Angelo stopped by for some basic Bolt-On and we got him set up with Eibach Prokit, and Airaid CAI, and a Flowmaster Outlaw Axle-Back.

We changed it up a little bit with this video and had Angelo rip the car by himself so you're going to get a better idea of what he thinks. He's had quite a few Mustangs, is pretty active on and off the track and he had some great feedback. Check out the video below and drop me a line if you have any questions or don't have our forums discount code.

Yeah looks way better! It actually lowered a bit more. Those pics were right after I installed them.. I guess eibach springs take a couple days to settle in.. I just can't wait till I get my wheels😁😁😁

Oh yea that looks great. Maybe some headlight taillight tint, and some black graphics and it will look awesome.

yeah I think I'm planning on doing that. also either blacking out the mustang on the back panel or just buying a black one.

I really want to lower mine and get rid of the beak dip but the rear looks to low for me. Any suggestions for a even wheel gap for the front and rear?

I went with the eibach sportlines which is a 1.5 up front and 1.3 rear drop. so if you think it's too low go with the pro kit

I don't think it's too low, looks perfect in the front but the 2015's seem to have a higher arch in the rear. I think I'm looking more for a balanced wheel gap than a level frame. Does that make sense? But one thing I should restate I hate the brake dip so that's most important for me to get rid of. I believe brake dip and unbalanced breaking is one of the biggest mistakes ford makes on safety.
