    Hi guys I'm new to this and could use some advise. Would the eibach pro kit with 1.5 drop for the vert be a good choice for a 95 gt vert.
    I hoped to just get springs,struts, shocks will this work? Or would I need eibach camber bolts or both camber bolts and cc plates? Here is a pic of the car to help you give advise or suggestions.

    That's a good kit I lowered my 94 on it and Kyb's and it was a huge improvement. I did need cc plates to get it within spec for alignment

    They're a decent spring. They are a bit soft so that could be a plus or negative. Personally if I were you Id go with the eibach pro kit and new poly spring isolators combined with a good set of shocks, struts and caster camber plates.

    Id say:
    -Eibach sportlines
    -poly isos http://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-front-isolators-7904.html http://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-rear-isolators-7904.html
    -cc plates http://www.americanmuscle.com/srperformance-caster-camber-9404.html
    -shocks and struts I suggest.. http://www.latemodelrestoration.com...STRT-Shock-Strut-Quad-Shock-Kit-Mustang-94-04

    I have them on my 94 vert, and the work fine, but the weight of the convertible really drops the rear, and in my case, and it may be the aluminum heads, but I wish the front was dropped lower. The ride is not bad at all,I put the eibach stuts and shocks on at the same time.

    front is nice
    rear is too high with my prokit

    I would get springs that lower it more in the rear.

    I highly suggest H&R SuperSports instead.

    Whatever you lower it with, get struts too. My car rides better now on solid bushing suspension with proper coilovers and such then it did with stock suspension and just lowering springs, thats how bad it can ride.

    I'd love to. H&R is a very high quality spring (imo way above Eibach) and you won't find a spring that gives your convertible a sexier stance.

    x2 on all of this. I did KYB/ProKit 3 weeks ago, SO much better to drive know vs blown front struts and broken coils lol.

    My front dropped close to 2" and need to get cc plates

    I would do H&R springs but the super sport version might be lower than you want but they do give the best look.
