        Are these progressive or specific rate springs? The title says progressive but the description says specific with specific spring rates.

        • These will indeed feature a progressive spring rate.

        How much does the average lowering spring lower the car from stock height?

        • Lowers 1.5" Front and 1.5" Rear

        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 ordered these springs along with the KONI STR.T Rear Shocks and Strut kit SR Performance Caster Camber Plates. I also ordered the 2003 Cobra Style 17x9 wheels. I have 275/40/17 on order with Americas Tire for the rear wheels and 245/45/17's for the front. Will the 275's fit with no issue with the aforementioned set up, or do I need to adjust anything to avoid any rubbing issues? I keep seeing that I should flip the rear quad shocks. Thanks!

        • You will not have any issues with this setup no.

            BBK lowering springs

            Looks good and handles better. Being my mustang is a convertible it really did drop 1.7 inches instead of 1.5 was easy to install. I lifted the car in the shop at my job and by myself i had everything done in about an hour and a half. Very easy with a lift didnt even have to use spring conpressors

            Fantastic ride, must buy. Can always trust BBK.

            Just installed my lowering springs, and let me say it is a convertible and it is a cobra so it's gonna drop a little lower, Let me say The ride is amazing and it handles beautifully, I can't wait to break them in more. But I also installed SR performance rear upper and lower control arms. The previous owner had KYB AGX Adjustable shocks and struts installed as well. Also, It is a must to get rear upper and lower control arms and a nice set of struts,shocks, and quad shocks/dampeners- to even out the ride quality. I highly advise not installing lowering springs with stock shocks and struts. Overall good ride quality, I'm confident in not scraping.

            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.

            For those looking for quality springs that don't bite the wallet BBK is the way to go. It dropped my 04 convertible GT about 1.5" on the front an about 1.25" on the rear giving it a really nice stance and a smooth ride. I'm very happy with this product thanks AM I will recommend these springs to anyone that asks where I got em from.

            Great Spring for the Price!

            Installed these with a set of Koni Yellows intended for a DD/DE 2001 Mustang GT. Set them to 1 turn front and .75 rear (found the rebound was a little too firm when corning at speed over bumps). This is a great combination. I have yet to feel a single jarring moment. It is not too stiff for a DD with the koni's and is plenty stiff enough for a DE car too. Allows just enough body roll.

            Perfect stance for a convertible

            I purchased these because they were cheap. Also, it was between this and another option due to my convertible being a heavier model. I was skeptical about the outcome but wow, did these springs exceed my expectation as far as closing the wheel to fender gap. From fitting my whole hand between the wheel and fender, I now can only fit about three fingers. I have not measured it but im willing to bet the 1.5" drop is on point. handling turns is better. If you don't mind a bumpy ride then just invest in some shocks and struts but for 200 bucks you can't beat the appearance on your lowered mustang. I don't mind the bumpy road, I like a lot of feedback from my ride.

            great buy and love the new stance

            First off, don't use spring compressors, that's why it took me all day. The bars got wedged and took me most of the day to get it out. Take a jack and place it under the lower control arm for the easiest way. Beware the bottom coil on the spring will more than likely break, making it a fun afternoon for you! Installation is really easy but look at your sway bar bushings as well as you sway bar link and your ball joints. I did these too and the ride is 100% better. It took the play out of the steering wheel and takes curves a million times better. I only replaced the front because the back are weighed down by my sub. The ride quality is better than stock and I'm still not scraping anywhere I've been. Overall one of the best additions to my car.

            i got these springs because the price was good and it dropped it just enough to get rid of that 4x4 look. I love these springs. the car handle like it should of from the factory. I also went with the bbk ones, just because most of the stuff on my car is all bbk, and i've been very pleased with all their products so far.
