Responsive Handling. H&R Race Springs offer tight responsive handling and more control than that of the stock factory springs. These standard rate Race Springs drastically reduce body roll in the turns, squat during acceleration, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking by lowering the vehicles center of gravity. H&R Race springs are perfect for aggressive street driving, but still comfortable enough for daily use. Muscle Car Stance. The H&R Race Springs not only improve the overall handling of your S197 Mustang, but they also improve the appearance by lowering the ride height approximately 1.5" in the front and 1.4" in the rear to eliminate that nasty 4x4 truck look for a more aggressive muscle car stance.

Application. This set of four H&R Race Springs are designed specifically for use on the 2005 to 2009 Coupe and Convertible Mustangs, including the V6, GT, and Bullitt models. Does

not fit the Shelby GT500.

lowering springs w/ tire rubbing? currently have 20" rims on my mustang, front are 8.5 wide back are 10" wide. would this kit lower the car too much? for example, would tires rub or would it make the wheels look over-sized and unattractive. i want a sporty look and better handling.

  • Having 20" wheels with this lowering kit will increase your handling and give you a tucked, sporty look all while not being too low to the ground. You won't have any rubbing or clearance issues up to a 2" drop and this kits hovers right around 1.5" so you are good to go! There are some other reviews that mention installing these springs along with a set of 20" wheels and they were very pleased! Hope this helps!

The LB/inch say for these springs is it better to have a higher number? Are these springs better then the eibachs for better stiffness. Will these work with the Eibach shocks and struts?

    H&R S197 Race Springs

    October 14, 2010

    I LOVE these springs! I was running the H&R Supersports for a while and decided to try these. The Race springs don't give you that super slammed look like the SS, but still a nice drop. These are linear rate springs as opposed to the progressive SS. They are stiffer too, but that doesn't hurt the ride due to the slightly taller stance which lets the suspension have a chance to work. I'm running Tokico D-specs, and with the SS springs, I had to set them pretty stiff to stay off the bump stops. Otherwise the suspension action would be a bit unpredictable over bumps. With the Race springs, I have more suspension travel, and I can soften the shock settings to have better compliance for street driving, even though the springs are stiffer. Overall, they were a nice improvement over the SS. Other stuff that you might want to use with these springs: Steeda ball joints, Steeda bump steer kit, camber plates, rear upper(adjustable) and lower control arms, adjustable panhard bar, LCA relocation brackets. These pieces will let you optimize the suspension geometry for the amount of drop you get with these springs.

    H&R suspension

    February 18, 2010

    I have seen many spring kits on the 05+ Gts and V6s, this kit by far have been my favorite. The ride is great, just how a car should handle. The drop is slightly more then the eibach kit which I had on before. I like H&R much better personally. My suspension is no where near stock so the ride I cannot comment on. As of right now, the car corners like a champ and I have no fears at the track on any winding roads. This kit will fit 20 in rims very very well as well as 18s. I also am using the eibach sway bars, all H&R shock spring and struts. I believe those all the only suspension parts I have that are for sale on this site. All are great products and I would definately suggest them to any buyer.

    H&R racing springs

    October 15, 2010

    Man what a difference!! As soon as I installed them my car had that aggressive stance Ford shouldve sent the car with. Warning!! These springs do not allow much body roll which Is ideal for track usage but be cautious when being overconfident with tight turns on the street because the rear end WILL slide out on you. For the experienced driver it can be fun but for someone without track experience, can be a very scary experience. But overall I give them a 10/10. Fantastic look right out of the box, completely different car once they're on, handling is impeccable. I first discovered them by seeing the H&R mustang in a magazine followed through on their website and seen the specs. Came here and ordered them. Would recommend to any one looking for lowering their mustang for every day show stance or track shredding usage.

    Just the right amount of "LOW"

    July 29, 2012

    Thought at first the lowering wasn't going to be enough, turns out it was a perfect amount. I got about 1" 3/4 which I think was enough. Any lower I'd be worried about going over bumps! Was a straight forward install and was surprised how well the ride still felt. I didn't install any new shocks, etc... and was worried about that from all comments on how more rough it becomes but actually feels close to the original factory. Overall handling is much improved and diffidently makes my stang appear more aggressive.

    H&R Race Springs

    November 13, 2011

    Very nice springs. I think the drop was closer to 2" front and rear. Loss of some ride quality but I was expecting that with a sportier spring. Almost zero body roll and I find myself speeding up thru corners instead of slowing down with the factory springs. The install was a breeze. Most of the instructions I found on-line said to disconnect the calipar from the knuckle but that is not needed. Just leave the jack under the lower control arm to keep the arm from dropping after strut is removed. This is the exact look the Ford should of sent the car out of the factory with. It's a sports car not a truck!! lol

    Love them

    January 03, 2009

    Car handles great, but the ride does get a little rough with these. Make sure you are willing to sacrifice the ride comfort a bit.

    Very Big Improvement

    February 22, 2014

    These springs completely transformed the look of the car. The car now corners much flatter and more controlled. Paired with the Koni Sport adjustables there is no comparison to stock. Highly recommend.

    definitely a good choice for me

    August 09, 2013

    I have looked over various springs for almost last 4 months. I do autocross diligently. My preference was on linear spring over progressive because the better handling predictability. This is my first spring upgrade and turned out to be very good one. Its stiff enough for a flatter cornering but does not harm ride quality at all. I have changed to adjustable konis at the same time. This spring with stock shock struts ride pretty well. With konis handling gets much better for me. I have to disagree with people who says that the ride quality is compromised. Also if you carefully look at the spring rate you will see that ratio of front to rear actually decreases in this springs compared to stock. This is better to lessen the understeering in built in mustangs. This dropped my mustang around 1.5" in front and little over that in rear, and that will be due to more weight in rear for my convertible. The spring swap part was easy enough, except for the fact that you have to remove those braces in convertible to drop axle enough to take out the stock rear spring. I did not take those brace out, so I had to compress the stock rear springs too to take them out. Also remember that the tighter coil side (coils close to each other goes up). Dont worry if you do the other way, It just changes the unsprung weight of the car by a touch, else it will work the exact same way. Although H&R says that we dont need to trim the rear bumpstops, but I had to as the body was touching the bumpstops, I trimmed it by little over 1/4 inch. I also trimmed the front ones by more than 1/4 inch. I do strongly recommend this product.

    September 11, 2012

    Took forever to decide on which springs to go with. Finally decided on the H&R race springs and am glad I did. Drop is perfect (looks like slightly more than advertised) and ride quality is pretty good. Handling is much more responsive, no more body roll
