Anybody using Brembo50 55D rear springs w/Koni Yellows?
I have installed Steeda Sport Springs on my 12-V6 earlier this summer to find that the front end lowered only ½ inch because of lighter engine, but still got a full inch in the back. Did not like the leveled (was totally flat) look and did not like the balance of the car either, so i reinstalled the stock rear springs and kept the front ones. The front works great with the Sport Springs and HD Mounts, so i am keeping it as is and work on the rear-end.
So now, with stock rear springs, my Mustang sit a little high and with the Steeda's it sits a little low. So i am aiming right in between for a drop of about ½ inch in the back to complement the ½ i got in front. Been looking at spring seats to lift the rear about ½ using the Steeda springs, but cannot find anything that fits the 2005+ Mustang, except what comes with coilover kits but i can't seem to find the spring perch only. Then again, i would probably not be able to get around ½" with an adjustable spring perch.
So, i have been looking at the Brembo50 55D Spring Kit as an option to lower my rear-end about ½ inch. The spring rate would probably be between the stock spring and the Steeda, so i believe that might be a good match for my Koni Yellows.
So, anybody here already running the 55D kit with Koni Yellows? Better yet, anybody matched those springs with front Steeda Sport Springs? Long shot and expecting "no" as an answer, but who knows, i may be surprised ;-)
Can't wait to finish that project. I explained my problem to the Mustang specialty shop in my area and the guy wanted to sell me a kit of Eibach springs. A Steeda rep offered me to swap my front Sport Springs with Ultralights as a better match for the rear Sport Springs, but the front end is perfect as it is now and not touching it.
Please share your toughts. Thanks. Sorry for the long post.
