pics of 1.5"+ lowered mustangs with 20s?

Discussion in '2005 - 2014 S-197 Mustang -General/Talk-' started by allcarfan, Jul 10, 2009.

  1. I recently purchased an FR3 handling kit with 1.5" lowering springs. I am concerned that the car might be too low with the M-5300-Kf Springs that came with them.

    With the new 20" wheels and these springs, I will be dropping about 2.5" in the front and close to 2.75" in the rear.

    Id like to see pics of what I am getting myself into.

  2. I have the FRPP with 20's - how do you figure an additional 1 inch drop because of the 20's?

    If you use the proper tire size the 20's will have the same overall diameter as your stock wheels.
     
  3. Shelby CS66 20" wheels - car is dropped 1.5 front & back

  4. Stock size:

    245/45/19

    New tires are 255/35/20 and 285/30/20s.

    The fronts are .75" shorter and the rears are 1" shorter than stock- according to online tire calculators

    I couldnt pass up the deal that I got on the KDW2s for the front size ($85 each brand new). The rear size was the closest I could get to the front size (height wise)
     
  5. Eibach Prokit (about 1.5" drop) with 255-35-20's up front and 275-35's out back

  6. I have 2 inch drop springs all the way around, 20 inch rims with 255/35 and 275/35's front and rear, no issues with clearance.

  7. Prokit+ body kit = learn how to be creative with angles on inclines as well as declines.

  8. what aize tires are you running Emay? I"m assuming a 255-35 up front and 305-35 out back?
     
  9. That's a correct assumption.
     
  10. 295-30-20 rears roll out is less than 1/2 inch from stock. 3d Carbon body kit.
     
  11. I've always loved those wheels Klaw as you know, but I am starting to warm up to the Anthricite. I was originally looking at Chrome but for the price difference I could almost pay for new tires too (at the 18" size anyways). :p

    Car's looking good man, I miss the strip and the Wed. shows at Home Depot!
     
  12. What size are you looking for? A guy I know went out of business and had some in chrome and anthracite last fall - low chance he's still got them but might be worth a shot.

    My car has changed alot since you saw it last (not much on the exterior). Current state of the project is summarized at:

    2007 Mustang GT Coupe "BLWNPNY"

    If you're ever in town the Wed night cruises have moved to Deerfoot Mall - we outgrew the Home Depot location. PM me and we can get out for a cruise.
     
  13. Was thinking of 18 x 8.5's Maybe 18 x 9's if the price was right. I had a great lead on them through the Ford guy on Mustang Source (brain lock right now) but it was just before the move and I couldn't justify the cost but it would have been $285 per wheel for the chrome which is $115 off per wheel.

    I won't get the car back up there I don't think, maybe for an international or something of the sort but if I do get back up to town this summer for work (not looking likely but hey who knows) I'll definitely post and come out.

    And holy crap your car is a monster now! Some insane work you've put into that thing! I really haven't done anything since you last saw me except put my nifty side mounted front license plate kit and a bullit steering wheel. Ah well, wife has been staying home with our son so free mad money isn't flowing or I'd be in there! :)

    I'll have to make a point to check out your ride if I do get into town, so many things I'd love to check out!
