    No. I had if remember right 2" drop in the front an 2.5" in the back. Been about ten years ago. An were 18" saleens powdered black. Filled the wheelwells nice? Kinda took that look an put it on my 02'. But didn't drop this one that low. Was tired of scrapin on every an anything. I actually wanted the airride techs. The airbag strut setup? But they are not to performance savve? Went with the Steeda complete suspension setup.

    It's funny. In my car I can get almost 300 miles out of the first half tank of fuel, but the last half goes down in 100 miles. lmfao.

    These 4.6 cars do quite well on gas. Back when I was in college driving from Grand Forks to Minneapolis I could get 23-24 MPG's averaging 75 MPH. That's not shabby and got me about 350 miles per tank of gas.

    Prolly cause you drive like a 15 year old bandit. On my regular commute (15-20 miles in light traffic) I average about 20 MPG in the Mustang and that includes some city driving.

    I actually really don't rip on it that much anymore, but the 4.10's dont help with the gas mileage. I could drive 200 miles down to school and still have like a quarter tank left. I do know my jeep with an inline six gets better mileage.

    Probably around there. Actually this whole tank was 99% highway running 65-75 mph I went 305 miles and the low light came on so I stopped to fill up it took a little over 13 gallons. It averaged 23 Not bad really.

    I tend to do a lot of city driving and am able to go about 245 miles, then the low fuel light comes on... I know when I drive up to visit a buddy in college I get 23 mpg at 75mph. Not too shabby , although the drone becomes horrible after 15 minutes at 75mph...
