    The Eibach Sportline springs will give you about a 2" drop all
    the way around.If you went slow over speedbumps or up or down
    driveways you should be fine but,I know quite a few people that
    scratched the heck out of the bottom of their cars going to
    low depends on where you live I guess.Most of the people I know
    are very happy with the 1.5" drop from the Eibach Pro Kit.
    I belive that 1.5" is just enough drop to loss the 4X4 stance and still
    have a nice drop on your mustang without scratching the bottom
    of your car everywhere.One of my cousins' friends had a 94 GT with Eibach
    Sportlines without the spring isolators and on a high speedbump ripped
    off one of his cats and his passenger side skirt.
    I think you will like the drop from the Eibach Pro Kit most people do.

    That will work just fine.
    Do you plan on getting chrome Bullitt wheels? O0
    Go with the Eibach Pro Kit.

    yea when my brother first got the car , he put the prokit on and he thought it was to high and then cut an extra coil off each spring, lol then it settled. now i kill everything. anything over 1 1/2 inches off ground.

    i mean that since he cut that coil my car will hit anything that protrudes 1 1/2 inches off the ground. say for instance, a can on its side......a 2x4......a dead squirel......drive on car lifts.......speed bumps......pot holes.....random things in the road.... thats sort of stuff. :)

    yea totaly, its a really good kit man, one good thing to do is when you do it to get some shocks/struts. Its also a good idea to get a fox body set of shocks/struts, since they have more travel for a lowered car. soooooo..... no more bottoming out.

    I have sportlines with tokico blues and have never bottomed out. As long as you take it easy going over speed bumps you should not have a problem. I plan on running the sprortlines once I install my BBK L/T's as well. 8)

    Scarface, that is really good to hear. I was pretty nervous about scraping. Are you running a tubular K?

    no, stock K...I will say leave the isolators on, the stock ones dont make hardly any difference in drop. Mine werent making noise until recently. THey will go back in ASAP.
