Anybody running this kit. It says it drops front 1.3 and rear 1.5. I just want to make sure the rear does not sit lower than the front after it settles in. I was also looking at the S281 package, but it says it only drops it a inch front and rear.

I have the EIBACH Pro-Kit and have no regrets. It is a good drop for a car that gets driven pretty often...rear definitely isn't lower than the front.

How is the ride? I have my GT4s comming from AM and wanted to put a kit on it when I put the new wheels on.

Rides a little rough. No lie... But, you gotta sacrifice that. When you get springs try and spend a little extra dough on the Tokico D-specs. I didn't and now I regret not doing it. It really starts to hug the curves though, it's nice.

How about the Roush Stage 2 kit for the street? It seems like a good kit as well and it has the better shocks/struts.

I don't mind the Eibach ride and I'm on 20s. It does stiffen up a little though but the handling it greatly improved.

As long as you get a lowering kit, with some nice shocks n struts, you'll be fine. I chose Eibach simply because that's all the company focuses on, and they are one of the most respected names in the market...

LOL! Which one? The Eibach? Honestly, it's all preference...

I think the Stage 3 is more comparable to the Eibach Pro Plus. Steeda has more Mustang experience. Eibach has more suspension experience. I don't have any experience with Steeda springs or shocks, but I have used Eibach in my previous 3 vehicle. And, I swear by them...

I'd go with Eibach.

With either one you're spending near a grand right? so, on the website Towelly *Jake* provided, you can get Coilovers... Which I think is nicer. Whenever you want, you can adjust to your cruising settings, when you wanna go show off, you can slam that bitch. But, if you are stuck between the two, I'd go Eibach. But, then again, it's preference.

Yeah i think the Pro Plus is like $999.00 and the Steeda is like $1,500. I see what your saying thanks for the help. How much would a shop run to put one of these kits on?? Also im running american muscle 20's the black bullit rims with th chrome lip. 20x9 up front and 20x10 in back what size tires do you reccomend for the drop?? Im wanting to run a 305 in the back.

Go coilovers. Around the same price, but no swaybars or anything.

After lowering the ride, and if the backspacing is right you should be looking at 305/35/20... just make sure you don't hit the fenders. I'm not sure on what the backspace you would need. Juco-the not so studdly-stud (Jucostud) is the wheel/tire guy here. Just hang on and he'll hear your prayers...
