Plus will i NEED to buy any other suspension mods or will i be ok by just getting the springs? P.S. any one have pics of there car w/ the pro kit springs? Thanx alot
yeah, it's noticeable. you should get pre-94 shocks, for best performance, ride, & longevity, but it's not necessary.

I don't know that Eibach is the best way to go -it's probably the top-low end system . ..


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

no difference, it's been the same suspension since 79, pretty much . ..

So pre 94 shocks will be a direct replacement for my old shocks (I wont have to modify any thing?) So what, i would just go to like a parts store and say i need shocks for a 93 v6 mustang?

waitaminnit!

You're getting the entire Eibach set, right?

Tif you're getting the shocks, springs, and swaybars as a kit, you don't have to worry about it.

Sorry 'bout that.

Ah, well, when you get shocks, go with the Eibach shocks . .. they're pretty reasonable . . .

I haven't lowered my car, but I have a razzi body kit on it. It looks as if it dropped about 1 - 1 1/2 in. And yes it is pain when you do pull into some parking spots. I have cracked it about 3 times just from not being careful . Also if you ever want to do anything with your car that has to do with jacking it up, that can be a pain in the @$$ too. I love my body kit and it looks sweet as hell too, and I was kind of thinking about lowering it a tad bit more just because I was sitting on a little dip one time, just my front wheel and it looked as if it was lowered in the front, it looked a lot nicer and a lot more stylish. But ya I'm just saying, even with it being about 1 1/2 inches lowered, it still is kind of a pain to get around, not speed bumps especially, but when I back out of my drive way the back scrapes unless i turn at an angle. If you want my opinion though, I say go ahead and lower it, it'll look good =)

They will fit, but they will suck all the torque out of the car, and your ride quality will be bad, even with the v6 shocks which are soft.

I wouldn't go more than 17s, with 18's you start to struggle to get wheelspin. with 19's you may as well drive a honda . ..
