    Okay, So i bought those Eibach springs. And I was about to install them and then I did some reading.... So far what I have read is that if I decided to put these guys on I need the following things to go with it:

    C&C Plates
    Bump Steer Kit
    Upper and Lower Control Arms....

    :gtfo:

    Do I really need all of these things just to make my car lower?

    Well to be honest you COULD get by with out any of them. At least with my springs you could. I have the H&R Super sports and they lower a pretty good amount. I don't see why you would need the upper and lower control arms for any reason? The CC Plates would be a good idea because your camber will be way off like mine and the inside of the tire will wear much fast then the rest of the tire and it looks pretty ricey to me. The bumpsteer kit is pretty much opinion from what I have gathered. Some people say its a must but I don't seem to have a problem with it at all. I would highly recommend getting the CC plates. MM if you can afford it. You will probably end up going with them down the road anyway. Goodluck and post some pics man. The install isn't hard at all and if time isn't on your side you could always start with the front and do the rears another day.

    Okay. So MM would be the best huh. Ill probably go with that. I just keep buying random crap. Anyway, I know this may be a little off topic but whats a good mounting location for a 6A box? I was thinking of doing a battery Relocation and putting it there. Whatcha think?

    Yeah what eibachs did you get, if you got the Pros you can get away with just the springs. If you have the sportlines you SHOULD get some nice CC plates (I reccomend Maximum Motorsports). Upper and lower control arms have nothing to do with lowering the car, you will not NEED them although they are a nice mod. Bumpsteer kit you will possibly not need either.

    Only thing you will NEED is the CC plates and that is IF you are using the sportlines.

    Im using the Pro Kit. I like the sportlines but it seems to be too low of a drop.

    You should be fine with nothing, thats what I had on my car before I threw on the coil-overs. My align was good with stock CC plates and stock everything else. Good luck :D keep us posted.

    With the tires i have in my sig, shall i have a problem if i wanted my mustang with the tires rubbing against anything. When i go around sharp turns the tires in the rear already do rub against the inside of the well. I was thinking on getting H&R ss and some c/c plates. Will i have any problems with the front or rear tires if i do lower it

    if you plan on stalling all of those above mentioned suspension mods sooner or later I'd wait instead of having to go back and get under your car again. Just get it all and do it on one swoop...

    If you're running just stock shocks and struts,then yes. If you're going to do a drop,then you should atleast invest some money into a good performance shock and strut. I am in the process of dropping my car,so I installed a full set of KYB AGX's.....it's not even lowered yet,and it feels like a whole new car. :banana:

    Having my car lowered was so important for me that i passed on a set of rims. I didnt want rims if she was gonna be in 4x4 mode.
