    These springs can be found for real cheap on ebay..like 100 bucks shipped..i saw one member on here with them but was just wondering if there will be and problems with these..i was leaning towards the maxxspeed becuase its a 1.8 inch in the rear 2 in the front...I will definately get the C and C plates..but will I need shocks and struts with these?..are these good..should I trust them on my car?

    my maxspeeds are great, but i have seen some people only get like a 1" drop from them, but most of them were 99+....i have my stock struts and no C/C plates...i have some Mach 1 tockicos i need to put on and i have some Steeda C/C plates, but they arent necessary...i just got them so i can have as much adjustment as i want if i feel like autoX'ing or whatever.

    Just remember you get what you pay for; and thats probably all they will do, lower the car.
    And yes you will need new struts/shocks, as they won't be able to handle the new springs.

    you can use stock struts, but the stock struts were not designed to be that low....getting struts designed to work with lowered cars gets you a much smoother better ride....and with most springs that lower 1.5" or more usually do need C/C plates, but anyone i have ever asked didnt need them.

    and as for "you get what you pay for" saying, i rode in a Cobra with eibachs and it rode like shit compared to my GT with maxspeeds...i just got them as a cheap alternative to lower my car now....i will probably end up with coilovers in the front and drag springs in the rear, or H&R SS...

    The last thing I would go cheap on is springs on your mustang.
    I would go for H&R Supersports they are a very reputable springs
    that alot of people use.If you plan on lowering your car that much
    plan on getting C/C plates and shocks and struts.Steeda or Maximum
    Motorsports make excellent C/C plates.Bilstein shocks and struts and the
    best for lowered cars if you ask me.

    stock struts and shocks will be fine but its best to upgrade them, your lowering the car that gives your stock shocks/struts less travel, and since they are softer then aftermarket you have a bigger chance of bottoming them out. there are dozens of people who run stock stuf and never have problems.
