    the cobra is honestly just the daily driver and I already have the eibach kit on it......but my show truck has a 5/7 drop on it and when I look at the car I always get the itch to make it sit just a tad lower ha ha. I am honestly 50/50 on doing it, just curious what any other opinions may be

    this is what I see everyday while im at work:

    Looks good where it's at. Maybe 1"-1.5" spacer in the rear.

    Looks like a monster truck. Remove them and cut like 3 coils.

    Remove them and wrap the top and bottom of the springs in a liberal amount of electrical tape. No squeaks for me.

    ha ha I have a lifted truck as well, but there is just something to love about a lowered truck that is done right and rides like a caddy

    i think the bigger problem is the tucked rear wheels. get some spacers in the back first, then decide

    I have been running without isolators for 20+ years on many Mustangs, never heard any noise and really what's the difference than having coilovers which doesn't have isolators on it?

    Never run ISO's. This is law.

    I run uppers in the rear springs just for the sake of extra comfort

    What is this comfort you speak of?
