Eibach R1 Multi-Pro Coil Over kit or Ford Racing Adjustable Handling Package? Opinion and input would be appreciated.

You can either piece together a better package than FR kit or do a coil over.
If you decide coil over, there are better options than eibach. Depends on your budget.

On a budget:

Koni STR.Ts
Steeda or eibach are good springs-
Specific springs depend on how low or high you want to go
FRPP strut mounts
Bmr PHB or CHE
CHE lcas.

The height on the FR 1" or 1.5" are both good for me, i talked to people with coil overs an they NEVER touch the height of the car, just the rebound and stiffness when going to the track so for me i am going to get the FR adjustable 1" drop.

I believe I've seen several 20s on here that we're lowered. A good piece of advice I got on here was to lower first. The gaps disappear and u may like your current setup more. On my iPhone, can't see ur rims but I hear the Brembos looks great on lowered setups

I wanted the same results as you (handling,stance and looks) and went with Steeda sport springs, heavy duty front upper strut mounts and an adjustable pan hard bar. 1" lower in the front, 11/2" lower in the rear. I like the results.

Speaking of springs, what is your opinions on progressive rates. Seems to be all that's out there, and from what I've been told progressives are garbage.
You've been misinformed...

Linear springs are ideal in some ways, particularly the ability to match shock valving to spring rate throughout the entire range of suspension movement, HOWEVER, this is really only a necessity on full-on racing vehicles.

Progressive springs are by far the more common choice for road-going street vehicles, because they provide the ability to have a softer rate for initial compression allowing for a smooth ride on smooth(ish) roads, then a stiffer rate for further compression when you either encounter a not-so-smooth section of road, or load the suspension in performance maneuvers. The downside is that the shock valving doesn't perfectly match the spring rate throughout suspension travel, but honestly we don't get that level of perfection on street cars anyway.

In short, anyone who tells you 'Linear is king and Progressives are garbage' has a little book knowledge, and no real world experience. Or, they live only at the racetrack and don't care about street driving...

I have a friend that wants to sell me the Eibach Pro-System Plus for 800.00. It is still new, I am thinking about pulling the trigger on this but I read in this thread that there are better shocks and struts than the Eibach....would it be better to buy the suspension separate or is this a good deal....I am just looking for improved handling and stance. I usually just use my Mustang on the street.

For a DD if you're looking for something good but I expensive then eibach will work great but if you want something more hardcore I would look into Tokico, koni, bilstein, or something like that
JUst for the shocks or struts? The rest of the pro system is pretty good though? I do not know a lot about suspension....sorry about all the questions.

Eibach has great springs, but not a fan of their coilover kit. I prefer koni over Tokico for struts, but that's my opinion.
Best DD setup IMO:
GT500 strut mounts
Koni STR.Ts
Steeda ultra-lites/eibach sportline/pro kit springs

We can take your car to the next level if you would like for us to put together a package like MM&FF did with a 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 ... check out the before and after results once the Steeda parts were added.

Email me at [email protected] or pm if you are interested in a well priced package.

Best Regards,

Great upgrades but I added the watts link and fully adjustable shocks and struts from steeda as well
