I have done tons of research, and i hear more good than bad on this subject.
I also read that ppl are usually going with roush rear springs since they can be sold separately.

Im considering this because my front is wayyyyy too low because of my body kit.

Thanks for any input or advice.

I will also be installing

I wouldnt do that on my car, it will make the rear sit lower than the front. I would do all four or just leave it stock.

I've seen some people selling roush rear springs in the Dallas area but have never actual seen a car with only the rear lowered. I think there only an inch lower. May work however I would recommend lowering all four corners as well.

There is a site that says that our cars should be lowered 1/2 on the back, without touching the front, they sell the springs too, so im guessing 1 inch is not the ideal balance drop

Do you believe everything you read on the interweb? Just get some adjustables and call it a day. I know mine has a slight rake with K springs but it's not a issue for me and I'm one of the most anal people you will ever meet.

the back is definitely higher than the front stock. I did Brembo 50's 55D spring kit for the rear only, just to level it. Big improvement in looks and no downsides.

Oozy, first of all you have a beautiful car. At the end of the day, it's your car and you'll be the one to make the choice. IMHO, I wouldn't do that to such a beauty. Unless you have, or plan on going with some high end dampers, I would go with matched springs and dampers all the way around. There are several that lower the car an estimated 1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. I don't think that's too much.

They can't put anything on the interweb that's not true, bonjour.

The spring rates are different but, the levelling part would probably help some, as the ride heights of BBP and the regular are the same, as far as it looks to me. The BBP wheels just fill the holes a little better.

I think it'd be fine. it's not a gargantuan change out back.

Honestly i thought i could pull it off with all the other suspension mods, but i think this is something that worked more for 05 thru 09 stangs

Now let me ask this, their are many many kits that drop the rear more than the front, like h&r, are they a bad choice? Or are they specifically made ford their certain drop, i mean its a whole inch lower on the back....

LMAO! One of my favorite commericals!

How is the wheel gap up front with the addition of the body kit only,Still stock height? Any pics? If you are good with the ride height and just want to level out the rear then I would say you are headed in the right direction with just rear springs.

Okay the front is about 5 inches from the floor, and the entrance to the park by my house is the pic that the kit is basically rubbing
