headers? I have long tube headers and was just curious if they would rub or scrap with these springs?


  • No they will not scrap unless u hit a big speed bump but in that case any exhaust will scrap

Will these springs be ok used with stock shocks and struts? Wanting to know if I'll have to buy new shocks and struts as well.


  • You can definitely install these lowering springs with you stock shocks and struts. But with that said, you'll find that on your 1996, you'll likely have much better ride quality and performance when adding new shocks and struts as your stockers have just shy of 20 years of wear and tear on them. Hope this helps!

I assume a GT Convertible will drop more than a coupe due to the weight. How much more drop? And how much difference is there with and without isolators? Thanks!

    Great springs

    really revived my 14 year old suspension with improved handling and response. significantly reduced body roll and nose diving during breaking and gave just the right amount of drop to give a nice clean look to my ride. great cheaper option to the more expensive springs, and an easy install that I knocked out in about 3 hours.

    BBK Springs

    Good quality springs. Stance is a lot better than stock, and has good ride quality. I would also reccomend caster/camber plates.

    These springs are just as good as any other springs out there. I got them installed the the guy that did it, took my car for a drive to make sure everything was okay and he said the car drives beautifully, and it does! plus the color looks cool under your car. It lowered my mach1 1.25 inches and my car handles better and looks better. thanks AM.

    lowering springs

    Great overall product. Lowered about 1 inch overall. Cornering speed has increased by about 15mph which is AWSOME!!! overall great product. Would have gotten 5 stars if it lowered the full 1.5 in like the kit said.

    BBK Springs

    These springs came on the car when I bought it, but I have ridden in many SN95 mustangs before, so I know that these are a very good improvement over stock. There are definitely springs that can get you lower, but because I have a cobra, the extra engine weight makes the springs settle a little lower than a GT. Very good springs for the money. Not too stiff at all for daily driving, I like these.

    Lowering springs

    These springs are a great impovement for handling and appearance with a nice level stance. The kit comes with detailed instructions as needed. ...and overall, a somewhat easy installation for the average wrencher like myself. Make sure to read intructions though; other wise, the car won't sit even.
