Lowering Springs for 2013 GT

Hi guys,

Looking to lower my car just a bit, nothing too aggressive, but want to get rid of some of the wheel well gap and improve handling. Anyone have a ny favorites? I'm sort of stuck on the Rousch 1" front/1.35" rear. Also was checking out the Eibach 1.25" front / 1.5"rear spring set. :?:

Thanks for your input.

So those springs may be for the convertible as the kit for coupe is more expensive on CDC and there is no mention of coupe or convertible here. I would ask questions before ordering that kit

Steeda Ulta-Lites. Lowers the car 1in in the front and 1.5in in the rear, gives it just the right stance, and rides smooth like stock springs.

I lowered my 13' GT with the SR lowering springs 1.5 in the front and rear. I also have 19' 255/40/19, 285/35/19 and personally I think it's perfect. No rubbing no bottoming out (obviously if you fly over a speed bump then yes). All i did was get softer rear bump stops and new shocks and springs and I personally love it I think it rides so much better and it handles a lot better and gets rid of that nose dive and dip you get when you accelerate.

The previous owner of my car had Steeda Sport springs installed right when it was new, but left the stock shocks and struts. Today I had Ford Racing shocks and struts installed with GT500 strut mounts. What a difference in ride. (I'm sure having a proper alignment helped too). The suspension guy I've used for years said when he took the stock strut mounts out they fell apart in his hands. He said the GT500 mounts were much heavier duty.

I can't stress enough how important it is to do the shocks/struts with the lowering springs, otherwise you'll hate how it rides.

I'm ridding on Sportlines and stock struts and it rides fine. No need to upgrade the stock struts if they are brand new.

Age has nothing to do with it. Sportlines have an aggressive drop, I would 100% not run stockers with those...
