    I am looking to get another SN95 Mustang and a lot of the ones I like (mods) have a lowered suspension. The common scenario is Eibach lowering springs and aftermarket shocks like Koni and CC plates. I live in the city with a lot of bumps and pot holes and wondered how stiff would this suspension feel compared to stock (which I owned in the past)?

    Thanks

    From my experience the ride gets a little rougher with lowering springs. You have to pay more attention to we're you are driving. I look to avoid pot holes as much as humanly possible and have to take speed bumps pretty slow and depending on the bump it will scrap the exhaust on occasion.

    Springs, cc plates, bumsteer kit, corrected ball joints and urethane bushings.

    The ride will be harsh no matter what. If you have after market exhaust, you need to pay more attention to that as well.

    And, if you are like me, 6'1" 220 with progressed arthritis/tendonitis in your knees, plan on your entry and exit from the vehicle not being very fun.
