you wont beat getting the frt gt upgrade kit, you need the brackets and the rotors. the calipers and pads are the same, the rear rotors/calipers/pads are the same on the gt

thanks amustangrocks hey stevostang , as far as the drop goes all I did was the lowering springs on front and rear my struts and rear shocks were in good shape so I did not change them . It rides fine no problems just stay away from steep driveways and those pesky parking things at stores you will hit the front clip. I do plan on doing a complete suspension upgrade with the same springs . There from dropezone .

i forgot to add you have to have at least 17" wheels to do the frt upgrade. i got the frpp upgrade kit from cjpony, but you can shop around. it comes with new rotors, brackets, bolts and slide pins in the brackets too. its a great upgrade, really made a nice improvement.

i might actually be getting a job at eibach, one of their main buildings is in my city here in california so im hoping to get a hookup with them, but i just love the look of a completely slammed car ive been wanting to do it for a long time your car is the first ive seen with a drop that low and it really looks bad ass good job on that, as far as the springs did you get camber plates or bolts?
