Review & Installation Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with, here with the Eibach Sportline lowering springs for 2011 to 2014 GT and V6 Mustangs. The Eibach Sportline lowering springs are going to be a good option for the GT and V6 owners out there who are looking for a spring that will give an aggressive drop and more aggressive handling. The spring is perfect for those owners out there that are willing to sacrifice some of the nicer amenities of a soft ride quality in order to gain one of the biggest drops from a lowering spring that's going to improve the looks and handling of the S197. Lowering springs have a big impact on both the looks and handling of this car, and the Sportlines offer one of the largest drops. These Sport Line springs are going to work for both the coupe and convertible models for both GTs and V6s. But the amount of the drop will change slightly depending on which model exactly you have, due to the weight differences between the models. These will drop the GT about 1.3 inches in the front and 2 inches in the rear, and the V6 just over 1 inch in the front and 1.7 in the rear. Like I said, it doesn't get much lower than this for the S197 from a spring. It may not sound like it, but it is a pretty big drop. Depending on your wheel and tire setup, this drop is going to eliminate a lot of the wheel gap that the car has from the factory, and it's going to leave the car sitting nice and even a little bit above the tires. But of course, that can change depending on what size wheels you're running. Now, a one-inch drop or just under a one-inch drop is pretty standard across the board for this year range. The car sits pretty high on the factory setup, so the 1.3 and 2-inch drop that the Sportlines offer is pretty aggressive, and I mean aggressive in both looks and performance changes. It's also going to be one of the greatest drops from a spring that you're going to be able to find. This drop will lower the car's center of gravity enough to create more track-like handling capabilities. These springs are really going to reduce squat during acceleration and reduce wheel hop as well. You're also looking at much less body roll during cornering and less nosedive during braking. Lowering the center of gravity this much means that these springs are really going to change and tighten up the handling of these cars. Now, if you think these springs have too much of a drop or you really want to hang on to some of the softer ride quality characteristics, Eibach also makes a Pro Kit lowering spring. They drop the car about one-inch or one and a half in the rear, and they will ride differently than the Sportline kit, a little bit more comfortably. They also have different weight distribution characteristics. To really lay this out, I would say that the Sport Line springs are more aggressive and better suited for some track use, or for those that are really looking for high performance and forceful looks. They're an all the way around more aggressive spring. The Pro Kit springs, on the other hand, are a great option for those that would like to lower the car and reduce wheel gap, but that want to keep the ride quality and streetability in the forefront of their mind as well. This doesn't mean that the Sportline Kit won't work on a daily driven car. It'll work just fine. It really all comes down to your personal preference and what you want out of the springs. The Sport Line springs, like the Pro Kit springs, are still a progressive spring. The progressive springs concentrate on providing bounce at all times in order to improve handling. I will say, though, that since the drop here is more aggressive than most other springs and keeping the spring rate in mind, that these springs are not the most ideal for drag racing. There are some better options available on the site for you guys that want to hit the drag strip. Those other options will allow for more weight transfer, and they'll give you better results on the drag strip. Now, these springs to provide an aggressive drop, but they're still going to work with both the factory wheels and the preconfigured wheel and tire kits that are on the site. These springs aren't going to make the car difficult to drive places, but you will need to be a little bit more careful. They're going to be stiffer than the factory springs as well, so you will notice some more road noise and a few more bumps. But I wouldn't say that these give a bad ride quality at all. It's just not as soft as factory. I do want to say that a lot of times when you're shopping for lowering springs, you're also shopping for things like adjustable caster camber plates and a new set of both shocks and struts. In this case, I wouldn't say that the caster camber plates are necessarily required. But I will say that a one and a half-inch drop is about the limit of where you would need a set of adjustable caster camber plates in order to get the alignment within spec. It's going to be close here, so a set of caster camber plates wouldn't be a bad idea at all. At the end of the day, it never hurts to have a set of adjustable plates. So if you've got the extra cash, I'd say go ahead. But in all reality, you should be able to get away without picking up a set. As far as shocks and struts, this goes back to the drop too. I would say that you could get away with the factory shocks and struts in this case, due to the relatively minor drop in the grand scheme of lowering cars and the more forgiving progressive spring rate. I would also say that this is the case if you have some components with relatively low miles. If your shocks and struts have a ton of miles on them, then I would replace them. But in this case, since we're talking about relatively new cars here, you can probably get away without it. When it comes to price, these springs are going to be one of the middle of the road options. They're not the most expensive, but they're not the least expensive either. They cost just under $250, which is the same price as the Pro Kit springs. If you're just looking to get your car lower and you're not concerned with ride quality, there are some other options on the site that cost a little less and will get you where you need to be. On the other hand, if you are concerned with a nicer ride quality and getting as low as possible, you're shopping in the right place. So the install here is going to take about four hours, and I'm going to call it a two out of three wrenches on the scale. You will need some knowledge to complete the install, so I'd recommend having a knowledgeable helping hand or taking this to a shop for the install, especially since it's always a good idea to get an alignment after the install anyway. This install can be done on jack stands if you don't have access to a lift. But as usual, a lift would be your best bet here. You're going to need a few tools, including a spring compressor. So make sure you have that before you start the install. You're going to need to get down to the spring and strut assemblies, so everything like the wheels, brakes, ABS lines will need to be moved out of the way so you can pull the assemblies out of the car. The spring compressor will help you remove the spring from the strut and install the new front springs, which are compressed and installed the same way. The strut assemblies go back the same way they came out, and the install is the same for both sides. The rear is nearly the same. You will need to disassemble some items to get to the springs. But ultimately, you'll be able to lower the rear axle to the point where the springs will be free. Just like the front, the rear springs install the same way they were uninstalled. No surprises here. The rubber insulators are transferred over and the new bump stops can be installed. After the new springs are in, you can begin reinstalling the shocks and everything else you want installed, and that's about all it's going to take. Like I mentioned earlier, a fresh alignment after the install isn't a bad idea. Wrapping things up here, the Eibach Sportline lowering springs offer a spring with an aggressive drop and improvements in handling to make for a car that feels track-ready. They will drop the car just over an inch in the front and two inches in the rear, and will leave the car sitting just above the wheels and tires. The springs are not difficult to install. They're in the middle of the pack as far as pricing goes, and you can check them out more online right here at

Do I need an upper control arm with these? Will I need an upper control arm with these or will I be fine without it? I don't race or track the car at all.


  • No, you do not need a new upper control arm. If you want a different ride then you could put some new ones on, but I did the strut/spring and camber plates on mine and it's been riding pretty good. I do recommend the camber plates. I got the adjustable ones and they are just awesome (mechanics will love them for an alignment).

Do you need Caster/Camber Plates? Do you need any sort of camber plate with these springs to have it align properly after install?


  • With drops in excess of an inch, you will want to consider camber bolts or the camber/castor plates recommended with this item. The rear may also change, an adjustable panhard bar is a good item to consider to re-center your rear-end after dropping your car.

How do you eliminate sweak from front end when lowering? I have installed Eibach Sportline springs, sway bars and the shock/strut suspension kit. I am getting a sweak from the front end when the suspension compresses/expands. I have had my dealer replace the lower control arms under warranty thinking that was the problem, but the sweak remains. Have done some reading on products sold by AM and it looks like the Strut Monuts might be to blame. I have ordered Ford Racing GT500 Strut mounts to hopefully fix the problem. Has anyone run into this when lowering your mustang? Some have ssaid this is the fix as the OEM strut mounts should not be re-used.


  • You hit the hammer right on the head. The GT500 Strut Mounts should correct the noise that becomes especially apparent when using lowering springs. Countless customer feedback has mentioned that by upgrading to the GT500 strut mounts, they eliminates the front end squeak or clunk, and also help to improve the handling and control of your Mustang! Hope this helps!

    I put these on my 2011 GT with the Brembo package and it handled great before but now its just silly fun in the corners, not to mention that it looks really aggressive. There is a positive increase in confidence through the corners, well worth the money. I have the stock struts/shocks and the ride quality is firm but its not "jar your bones" firm. Put it this way, my mother likes how it rides, so most people shouldnt have a problem with ride quality. i love how the car sits nice and level!!

    Installed springs on a 2013 GT spring compressor needed.....took 3hrs. Would consider mech skills above average. Drop is perfect....glad I went with the sport line. Have not bottomed out or scraped the car in about 200 miles of driving. Also installed an adjustable pan hard bar....very strait forward install. Handling is night to day goes around corners like a sports car should. Do no hesitate to buy!

    Awesome set of springs

    Expect little to no brake dive after installing this great set of springs. Also no staring at the sky when you give it a little gas. The car still maintains good ride quality and I am not getting any front end "clunk" at all over bumps/rough roads (re used oem mounts). Also about the easiest spring install ever...about an hour with a lift and a buddy.

    Corners on rails

    The Sportline springs have not only given my Mustang the look but have made an amazing difference to the cornering ability; no perceptible roll, as well as minimal pitch under braking and acceleration. Now I can make full use of my 93 Octane hybrid Bama tune! It's like she's on rails going around corners; truly! Ground clearance is now a front and back 4.3" (clearance to splitter and convertible bracing). Need to have a real low hydraulic jack to get under the car now though. Ride is firmer and you certainly feel the road surface more, even with stock 17" tires. The rear bump stops engage on bumpy country lanes at speed and make a solid thud - got to slow down compared with stock! However, the compromise for the cornering is well worth it. I have no squeaks and added the Eibach camber adjustment bolts I used a spring compressor to avoid removing the convertible bracing at the rear. The new springs will fit without the need for a compressor. Watch out for the ball bearings falling out of the top of the front strut when compressing the spring. Do it on a table to not lose them. I cleaned mine, regreased and reassembled. If you want amazing handling on corners, less rear axle hop and a stunning look, get these Sportline lowering springs!

    Perfect ride!!

    Great springs wish the car came with these from the factory because before the car looked like it was going off road and now it's perfect. Very simple to install and it on a lift with all hand tools. Took about 2 hours to do everything including the J&M rear panhardbar. Car rides great not to bouncy, no nose dive with hard braking, and handles great. Should have made this my first mod. Note I only have 7200 miles on my car and a lot of people say to replace the upper strut mounts but re used mine and no problems here, overall definately love the way my car looks and drives now.

    Good quality springs, lowered the perfect amount.

    I put these on my husbands 2013 5.0, and must say I am very happy with the quality of these springs from Eibach. However, there was no instructions in the box, American Muscle has a great PDF write up here on the site, but I feel there needs to be a hardcopy put in the box with the springs. I also do not like that I purchased these for $30 more during the month of December (an Xmas present) and now (January 4), they are only $230. This is a reflection on American Muscle, and not Eibach. These are worth their money, pretty easy to put on; just take your time and follow the instructions here on the site step by step and you'll have it lowered in no time!

    Looks Great, Handles Even Better

    I spent a lot of time researching suspensions systems, and I finally settled on the Eibach Sportlines. I realize they are a little more "extreme" than some of the others, but they make the car look and handle great. Installation was pretty straightforward. It took me most of a day because I had to run out and rent a spring compressor. I also took advantage of having the car on jackstands to replace the panhard bar and sway bars. One word of advice: make sure you have a jack that is low enough to clear the car after the front end springs are installed. I had to buy a new jack because my old one was too tall to pull out after the new springs were installed.

    Did the job

    Owning a V6 i was really skeptical because these springs work for a V8 as well. Not being a fan of one size fits all I kept leaning to the Ford Lowering springs designed for the V6. After much research and himming and hawing I took the plung. After a bit the springs settled in and lowered the car just where I wanted it, without the race car ride. The squat coming off the line keeps the rubber down, and has added to the fun of the car

    Mustang Gt w/ 255/35/20s 285/30/20s. Fitment is flush. Sits straight maybe a .25 inch rake maybe. Haven't had issues scraping over bumps railroad tracks or speed bumps ( it's probably close but driving in wv hasn't been a problem) ( note you still have to drive it like a lowered car) Handling: night and day difference. No more wheel hop, no more nose dive, no more rollercoaster ride on WOT. It BARELY rides harsher. It actually rides super smooth with bumps being a TAD harder. But what do you expect. And easy tolerable daily driving. I don't even wana mention how much stiffer the ride is cause it's what I expected stock for a mustang to ride like. You can't tell its lowered. Car is so responsive, you turn and she sticks and goes. Shoulda been my first mod.

    Impressive change to the car

    My '12 Perf Pkg handled well off the lot but the sky high stance bothered me, as did the initial leaning on turn-in. I bought these springs after a lot of reading of reviews and I am glad I did. Easy to install (buy yourself a proper strut spring compressor - about $60) and did not take long. The stance is now perfect and the turn in is crisp. I read that they were rough but even on bad pavement they aren't annoying. I am still running the factory 204A struts and shocks and they control the stiffer springs well. I did get an alignment to fix the toe from lowering but the camber was still within spec and I would recommend getting both an adj panhard rod - I went with the JandM - as well as new strut mounts as mine came apart when I took them off the strut. Highly recommend these springs - my car changes direction like a shark now.
