They honestly all do the same thing, lower your car obviously. It's mainly on your taste. Do you wanna be slammed or just low enough to where you can tell but not drag the ground lol. If you have enough money coilovers are always good cause you can adjust it to whatever you want. I personally have Eiback Pro-Kit and its lowered 1.5" all around and I think it's just about perfect. It's all your own preference. AM has a ton of lowering springs and pictures of how they look. Good place to look if you wanna see how they look. Gonna look awesome no matter what you get dude!

oh ok. so whats the difference in the ford racing b and c though? just ride height?
I'm not for sure on the Ford lowering springs but if I had to guess that's what I would say. Just like the Eibach Pro-Kit and the Eibach Sportline kit are the same type of springs just the sportlines make the car a little lower in the front.

Hi, the main difference on the ford racing springs are the spring rates.They will all lower your car. But some with give your car a lot stiffer ride from your stock springs.I believe the Ford cart is from B-G. The springs rates are : B,fronts(425/530)rear,(200/300). C,fronts (650) rear (200/300, F,fronts(460/570,rear(170/310), G,fronts(500/570,rear(170/310. B,C springs will give your car, front a .875-1 1/8 drop. .05-3/4 rear. F, front 1.2,rear 1.0, G front 1.2., rear 1.2

Also, I've hear the spring rates, like 425lb - 530lb means that they are a progressive rate spring.

*Edit* ^This is wrong. They mean 2-step linear. More info to follow...

Don't mean to hijack a thread, but, spring rates, the higher the number the stiffer the spring? Just trying to learn since I'm in the market to be lowered.

^This is wrong... When two rates are given, it is a 2 step linear spring. Each number represents one of the steps.
In a two-step linear spring, about half the coils have shorter spacing. As the spring compresses, the coils move closer. At a certain point, the shorter spaced coils touch, effectively eliminating them from the spring. You then have a spring comprised of only the longer coils. This "second-step" spring will be much stiffer than the whole spring (the more coils, the easier it is to compress the spring). The result is that you have one set of handling characteristics before the shorter coils touch and then you have another, completely different level of response after they touch. (HyperPro website)

I have the ford racing B springs and I'm enjoying the ride a lot better than the stocks. Smooth ride. Lowered but not too low for our horrid streets. Let me know if you have any questions about them.

That's exactly why I will go with the Ford racing "C" springs. I want to lower it, but the roads suck pretty bad around here and I want to drive it, not just look at it. The C spring rates match up pretty close the the Mach 1 stock springs.

Yea it was a very noticeable difference to me and others I know here too. It does it's job in getting rid of that 4x4 look literally. Before when when walking to the car I could see the shocks n all in that gap but now I would have to get level with the car to see them. I wish I took some better b4 n after picks for everyone on here but the first two are before pics n the last three are after.....wasn't the most extreme drop it was the drop I was looking for. Very happy with them. If you want stiffer ride with the same drop then go with the C springs. You've got options my friend.

C springs are 600lb front 300lb rear, the B springs are softer not sure exactly how much but they are (both are linear spring rates vs progressive as far as I know)

C's are better for handling but worse for ride

I like my ford racing c springs very nice handling. Yes they are a bit stiff but not bad. I am going to be getting rid of mine, I want more drop so I bought h&r springs. So I hope it works out when I change them. But I don't have anything bad to say about my Ford racing c springs.
