    Not so low any more!

    Hi Mustang folk.. after owning Fred for 18 month now.. I've finally worn tired of it being so slammed low (previous owner lowered it to the max)..standard springs are back on ! I've had a month wait of back order, they were sending individual springs at a time!?!! but all sorted now. Speed humps and uneven driveways won't be a tedious issue any longer
    look at the difference of them!!

    I put lowering springs on one of the '05 Mustang I had, they got swapped back the following day! Driveway to the garage is a slope and I couldn't get it in the garage because it "grounded" half way in.

      Yep totally understand where you're coming from! I certainly don't think the standard height is any detriment to the looks of the car or the handling..so why suffer grounding out?! I've got a left damaged sill due to bottoming out into a pothole so I won't be as worried now.

            I can never understand lowering a car so the ride is harsh and ground clearance is bad especially the condition of our roads

                Eibach Sportline, lower 1 inch front and back, no loss in ride comfort and improve looks and handling. Eibach Pro-Kit a bit lower and a harsher ride. To each their own it's a matter of personal choice obviously

                  Hope it didn't cost to much. I'm sure someone would have covered the fitting costs to swop over and lower theirs :-D

                    Yep they were Eibach. They're now available for resale if any one is interested in lowering.
                    I like the lowered look to a certain degree but our roads just aren't good for the ground clearance. I live quite rural and use it 6 days a week for work.

                      As said above the Eibach springs normally only lower an !2 or so. I ave them on my S197 because it made the wheels look like they "fit" the arches better. That comparison picture you have shows a big difference. Maybe there are different height Eibach springs or they have been modified further.

                        Hi..they were 30mm 25mm and fitted flush with wheel arch. Standards now don't drive quite as like it's "on rail's" anymore but I'm not grumbling!
