    why cut the springs? Ford C springs are cheap enough, and won't make your car do the ricer hop over every bump.

    if you get c-springs you will cut 1-2 coils off eventually

    Just get some Eibach Pro for a lower stance or H&R SSs for a slammed look. Either one new shocks and struts is highly recommended.

    Here is mine on Eibach Pros with 18" Saleens to fill it out nicely:

    And here with 17s just so you have an idea:

    Hmmm...those 17s looks better than I thought. I'll definitely consider the 18s as more of a "final" upgrade.

    BTW, when I'm thinking lowering, am I right to consider all of the following?

    • springs
    • shocks and struts
    • caster/camber plates
    • read lower control arms

    If so, I'm going to need to do some more financial wizardry... :D

    Actually, I was considering the FRPP "G" springs, which are basically the convertible version of the "C" springs. Since they don't lower quite as much, could I get away with not doing the cc plates and LCAs?

    only diffrence in the G and C is the rear spring rate i thought.

    I know it has camber in the front, that is because I just headed off from an autocross event. THe car is on Steeda competition springs and bilstein struts, but not for long :D

    Here's the info on stangsuspension.com...

    C: Spring Rating: 650 lb./in. front - 200/300 lb./in. rear (equal to our popular Steeda Sport Springs) Lowers car 1.2 inches front, 1 inch rear

    G: Spring Rating: 425/530 lb./in. front - 225-325 lb./in. rear (very close to Eibach Pro-kit specifications) Lowers car 1.5 inches front and rear.
