Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m going to be breaking down Eibach’s Pro-kit springs, fitting all 2005-2010 Mustang GTs, and all 2010 V6’s. Eibach is one of those household names in the world of car modding, more specifically the world of aftermarket suspension, if you’re looking to make any car handle better, Eibach is without a doubt one of the best places to start. So what can you expect from Eibach’s Pro kit springs? Well drop wise, they are going to be the milder of the two offerings from Eibach, the other option being the sport lines. The drop is going to be anywhere between 1.3 to 1.4” up front, and 1.4 to 1.6” in the rear depending on your ride. If you are looking for a bigger drop, Eibach does offer those sport line springs which I just mentioned, that will lower the car closer to 2 inches in all four corners, if that’s the look you’re going for. If you just want to get rid of some of that ugly wheel gap without having to worry about scraping over every speed bump, then the pro kit is an excellent choice, this would be a great time to tell you to click the link below to visit the product page on our site, here you can check out some of the very favorable customer reviews on the pro kit springs, and check out nearly 50 images of these springs installed on some of our customer cars. This way you can get a better idea of how the drop might look on your own ride. So we know what to expect appearance wise out of the pro kit, but what about the handling capabilities? A good set of progressive springs like these Eibachs here are going to improve several different facets of your Mustang’s performance. For instance, it’s going to reduce squat on hard launches, excessive nose dive during hard braking and body roll while in corners. Basically the car is going to prove more capable, and most importantly more predictable when pushed to the limits. That leads me to my next point which I do get asked about frequently, does installing a new set of springs mean you have to change out your shocks and struts? Well, that’s up to you, ultimately pairing a new set of springs up with a set of performance shocks and struts, that are better designed to work with that lower ride height and firmer spring rate, however as these springs do offer a very mild drop, your factory stuff should be able to handle the job just fine, as long as everything’s in shape. Otherwise you might want to consider upgrading, or otherwise checking out Eibach’s Pro system plus, which does come with everything you need to completely revamp your suspension. Installing a new set of springs isn’t exactly something I’d recommend for the first time wrenchers out there, this is just because you do need to use some specialized tools like a spring compressor, to remove your factory springs and install the new Eibachs. Because of this we highly recommend leaving this install in the hands of the professionals. On the other hand, if a spring install is just another job in the garage for you, just leave yourself about 4 hours to get everything bolted up. It is worth point out that whenever you do alter the ride height of your vehicle, you should ideally take it to your local alignment shop just to get everything checked out, especially your camber. If you do need some additional adjustment, Eibach offers a very affordable solution, thanks to their camber adjustment bolts, just be sure to let the springs settle for a week before taking the car in. So if you’re looking to improve your Mustang’s handling and appearance, then go ahead and check out these Eibach pro springs available at AmericanMuscle.com, and if you want to learn even more about making your Mustang handle better, then go ahead and subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking the link below, or in the corner, here you can check out some of our gen specific handling builds, and check out some of my other handling product overviews.

Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs are great for that daily driver but yet gives you a nice look and let's not forget the how much better it will handle.. Great quality springs with a great price..Love em
These springs are great for goving the car a more aggressive look without lowering the car so much that rubbing occurs. They take some time to install so give yourself a good day to do them just so you are not rushed.
These springs are very high quality and now the car handles so much better. Reduces body roll in every aspect including during acceleration, braking and cornering. Rides a little stiffer as expected but not unbearable. And not too much of a drop so they will work for a daily driver. Overall I love the new stance and handling capabilities, and would highly recommend. Little pricey for springs but very high quality as expected from Eibach so the price is justified IMO.
This installation was very straight forward. I had the rear springs installed and the car on the ground in under 1 hr, using only hand tools. The front springs took 2 hours to install from start to finish (with a bud helping). It's just easier to get the strut back into the tower with and extra pair of hands. The car looks great and handles much better now.
Pinion angle Hello,
When installing this spring set is it necessary to have an adjustable upper control arm to re-set the pinion angle? The car (2007 GT convertible) is used as a daily driver and will not see track time. Thanks and keep up the good work.
No you only need camber bolts or camber plates for the front and an adjustable panhard bar in the rear. Get it close and send to an alignment shop for 4 wheel alignment.
I've had no problems on my 2010 and drive it daily, only thing I had to replace was the track bar, due to rear being off center.
I want to know which will you choose between eibach pro-kit springs and steeda ultralite spring
The Choice between the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs and the Steeda Ultralite Springs will come down to a number of factors. The biggest difference is that the Eibach springs will provide a more comfortable ride, but the Steeda Springs will provide better handling.
Will my 2010 convertible get lower the same as the coup.
The estimated drops for the 2010 model year are as follows: GT Coupe: Front - 1.4", Rear - 1.5"; GT Convertible: Front - 1.4", Rear - 1.6"; V6 Coupe: Front - 1.3", Rear - 1.4"; V6 Convertible: Front - 1.3", Rear - 1.5".
When dropping your car more than 1 inch, it's highly recommended to install CC plates to obtain the proper alignment. Factory adjustments don't tend to allow for enough movement to get your Mustang aligned properly. Using the CC plates will also prevent uneven wear on your tires, keeping you from having to replace them prematurely!
No you do not have to install camber plates the Eibach camber bolts will work fine to get front aligned at the shop. I however wish I had spent the extra $$ and bought the plates because the factory ones are the cause of the clunking noise that some complain about. The noise is worse with front end lowered but I will wait until I put struts in and get the camber plates at the same time.
They are compatible with the stock camber plate but it is recommended to upgrade!
With the pro's you wont have to but the camber bolt was needed on mine.
