Default Lowering springs options!!?

Hey guys just thought I'd get some opinions on what brand of springs to get. I've been leaning toward eibach or steeda.but just wondering what some of you guys thought and what you have.im sick of the stock ride height.looks like it has a lift kit in it haha.

I used to have eibach sportlines before I went to coil overs and they were great. I'd recommend doing caster camber plates at the same time if you decide to go that low to make sure you can get your alignment dialed in properly

Yeah im at stock ride height for now, and im in the same boat; totally sick of it! Im going the cheap route for now and just cutting them lol. I think i want to invest in CC plates like Pete said though, but its not a necessity. I had the same springs (ebiach sportlines) in my old GT with no isos, and it was at a really nice height.

I have the eibach sportlines. I like the way it handles. However, they have been in for short time and I have a hairline crack in one. I have Caster and chamber plates and once properly aligned its great.

H&R race springs here, no isos. No noises and perfect stance. I had sportlines in my 02' GT and they were good.

@thecat033 any problems with your coilovers? Didn't know if there an alignment headache or not. And @ mellis any big downside to cutting the stock springs?

Nope they're great, when you add caster camber plates you have full range of adjustment allowing you to dial in the alignment so it's not an issue. It's really no different than lowering your car with a regular spring aside from the obvious benefit of being adjustable

I had sportlines on my mach and just picked up another set for the foxbody. I would just go on svtp or corral and find a used set instead of brand new, much cheaper
