Lowering Springs - Which Ones?

Hi All,

I am thinking about lowering my V6 convertible. I can only go an inch due to my driveway. I was wondering if one inch will be noticable and which springs would give me the best ride. I love the way it feels now with the stock springs, but I added new wheels and tires and it just seems to ask to be lowered now.

Thank you for any help!

i was visiting stang suspension yesterday and was going a lil research on different things. i did look at the lowering springs they come in two forms. I (1)and II (2). the II is the same as I but lowers the car a little more. i believe that the I lowers the front and rear by 1 and 1/4 inches. idk if that too low for you but they say that its a noticable difference with out worrieing about going to low for such problems like your drivetrain. good luck

I'd take a look at the Steeda Ultralight springs (1.25" rear and 1" front)
