2002 Mustang GT Front Suspension

I bought my 2002 GT about a month ago, the previous owner lowered it and i'm wanting to raise it back up. i'm wanting to go back to stock height. should i just buy stock coil springs or do they make an aftermarket coil spring that would be better?

And which shocks and struts would be best to get a little better handling and ride?

Thank you.

This might work out to both of our advantages here on this matter. I am actually looking to lower my 02 Mustang GT. I still have stock springs and all. Does your car currently have adjustable camber and caster plates on it? Mine is still stock springs and the car only has 58k on it so the springs are in really good shape.

I work for Advance Auto parts and I bought the Monroe Sensa Trac Struts for the front and Sensa Track Shocks for the rear. I absolutely love the way those shocks and struts feel on the car. I highly recommend them for an every day driver car. Sorry I didnt post this on my previous post.

OEM springs will work fine. Most aftermarket springs are designed to lower the car.

no camber and caster plates. i'm not exactly sure how much its lowered. i've got 265 tires on the front and i cant even stick my hand between the fender and the top of the tire. my car only has 69k miles so these springs are also pretty good i'm sure
