Hey guys i have a 87' Mustang Gt Hatch and i was woundering what springs and struts and springs i should get ( with your segestion and help b/c i know nothing about them ).
They all need to be replaced ( Front and back ) and i was looking for something that is at least decent but most importantly affordable and not too expensive. I know nothing about either really and i dunno if 50/50 is good for struts or what it even means, so i was hoping you guys knew of some decent ones that arnt too costly.
And for the springs the same thing goes really, i dont know much and was looking for something that is affordable. Another question that this brings up is i dont want to lower my car much, if at all b/c i wanted to get some 5 lug 17x8 rims front and back and i dont want to have ant clearence issues. Will i with 17x8s? i want to be able to turn and not hit my front fender or anything and i would maybe like to lower but can i? And will the tires rub or will they be ok? But if i did lower i dont think i would want to go anymore than 1 inch, if at all. So yeah sorry this is so long but what are good affordable springs and struts, and will my 17x8's rub on the fender or anything if i lower it?
Thanks for any help guys, again sorry for the long post. And if this matters this is only going to be a street car, no drag, if that makes a diff. Thanks for the help any/everyone! - The Novice.

Depends on how long you plan to keep your car on the ground.....

QA1*****

Push for adjustable coilovers from QA1 if you can If not, go with Eibach and then get Strange double adjustable shocks. You will have the tightest suspension with room to move around and adjust.
