A Cheap & Easy Way To Lower Your Mustang!

stangin2005 wants to know: “I’m looking for the best lowering springs I can get for my 2005 Mustang GT without having to buy all sorts of camber and caster adjusters. I want the best ride quality possible!! What springs do you recommend and can I go an inch and a half?”

AM_2011_Mustang.jpg Great question, stangin! Lowering your Mustang has a number of benefits, the most noticeable being appearance and performance. By lowering the vehicle, you lower the center of gravity, which greatly improves handling and reduces body roll & nose-dive. Unsightly wheel gap is also eliminated, giving your Stang a sleek, intimidating look (especially over a set of 17”, 18” or 19” wheels).

Lowering kits that are designed solely for performance gains often make big sacrifices when it comes to ride quality, and lowering the car more than 1.5” will require caster/camber plates and a ball joint kit to properly realign the suspension. Considering you want to maintain decent ride quality, I’d recommend the Eibach Pro-Kit; match it with the Eibach Pro-Damper kit or a set of Tokico shocks & struts and you’ve got a great performance suspension without sacrificing ride quality, or rattling your teeth out of your skull!

This is the same set of lowering springs that we installed in our 2011 Mustang project car, and we’ve taken that car both to the track and the grocery store. Best of luck with your suspension and keep the questions coming!

      Well, you don’t want to get TOO cheap when it comes to your suspension and tires ;)

    Most lowering springs can be had for about $249.99. If you install them yourself, and align the car, you can have it done for about $300-325 total. Even with shocks and struts, you can do the entire suspension, installed for $500-700 depending on labor, etc. That’s with top-of-the-line products, at normal pricing.

    We have some weekly sales (check out the rotating banner on AM homepage) where right now, for example, you can pick up a set of H&R springs for your 04-down Mustang for less than $200!

    I have had the pro kit springs on my 2006 mustang for 4 years, also have had the tokico d-specs on for about 3 years. I haven’t had any issues with alignment and no need for cc plates
