    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with these lowering springs from Ford Racing for 2015 and up S550 GT and EcoBoost Fastbacks. The Ford Racing X-Springs are gonna be a good option for those of you out there that are looking for a lowering spring for street and occasional track use that's gonna maintain ride quality but still provide performance and still get rid of the majority of the wheel gap that the S550 has. These springs offer a drop of one inch all the way around the car, which is enough to lower the center of gravity to provide some handling improvements, like reducing squat and body roll in corners and eliminating nose dive under hard braking. A one-inch drop is also gonna improve things on the appearance side, so no more big wheel gap, and you'd be surprised at how well the S550 chassis responds to just a one-inch drop in both the function and the looks categories. The one-inch drop will keep a little bit of space between the tire and the fenders, but it's even-looking and I wouldn't consider it a gap anymore. It's a functional low, and by that, I mean it's low enough to look good but not low enough to causes issues either on the tire or under the car. It's gonna leave you with a very streetable car still. You may have already noticed, but the majority of springs are only offering a one-inch drop because the S550 chassis doesn't need a huge drop to obtain better looks or an improvement in handling. The S550 responds well to what some of the older generation Mustangs would consider a very small change in ride height. There are some springs that'll give you a larger drop, but not by much, but they will still get you lower if you're looking for the maximum drop from a spring. And these are gonna be compatible with both the factory and aftermarket wheel and tire setups, which is just another plus of the 1-inch drop. Just for reference, we did install these on our 2015 EcoBoost with 255/40-19s and 305/35-19s on the rear. The drop will look a little different, depending on your wheel and tire setup. The other thing to consider when you're shopping for springs, besides the drop, is ride quality. These are a progressive spring, which means that they have a progressive spring rate, and that means that they're a good option for a street car. They don't have a harsh ride quality, but they will firm up as you start pushing the car, which works to give you the best of both worlds between comfortable and functional. Normally the trade-off with springs is less ride quality for better performance or a better look, since in typical fashion, the factory suspension is set up more for having a comfortable ride quality and being easy to drive than anything else. The stock springs are soft and they allow for wheel hop and a lot of body roll in the corners, so there's a lot of room for improvement. As far as ride quality, though, these aren't far off from stock. They're not a stiff spring. They are more forgiving. You'll probably notice a difference in ride if you drive your car every day. It will be a little stiffer, but it's not uncomfortable. Overall, these springs are intended for street or occasional track use, so they do give a stiffer-than-factory ride quality. But they're made to not be harsh, so still comfortable but also able to perform when you want them to. Ford Racing does also offer a track spring if you want something more along those lines. As far as price, these springs are gonna be right in between $200 and $300 mark, which is right where the majority of other springs are falling as well. Of course, there are some breakout springs that are either less expensive or more expensive than that and even springs that are all across this price range. At the end of the day, it's really about what you want from your springs and what you plan on doing with your car, and that will help direct you to the right spring. So the install here is gonna take about four hours, and I'm gonna call it a solid one out of three wrenches on the scale. Because you will need some knowledge to complete this install, so I'd recommend having a knowledgeable helping hand or taking this to a shop for the install if you haven't done this before. It's always good to get an alignment after the install. 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 gonna need a few tools, including a spring compressor, so make sure you have that before you start the install. You're gonna need to get down to the spring and strut assembly, so everything like the wheels, brakes, ABS line, and 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's the same for both sides. The rear is where things are a little bit different, but nothing crazy here. Essentially the IRS subframe will be dropped, along with the rear shock mat, so you can slide the rear springs out. Just like the front, the rear springs install the same way they were uninstalled, no surprises here. The new bump stop is slid onto the shock followed by the factory dust boot. The new spring can then be installed, and the IRS subframe can be bolted back up. That's about all it's gonna take. Like I mentioned earlier, a fresh alignment after the install isn't a bad idea. Wrapping things up here, the Ford Racing X Lowering Springs offer a one-inch drop all the way around, they have a progressive spring rate, and they're designed for street and occasional track use. As always, I suggest you check these out more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improves Handling. Installing a set of progressive rate Ford Racing X-Springs will lower your Mustang's center of gravity, which will reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in the corners, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking. Ford Racing X-Springs are great for daily driving, street, and even occasional track use.

    Aggressive Stance. The Ford Racing X-Springs not only improve the handling of your S550 Mustang, but they also improve the overall appearance by lowering the ride height approximately 1.0" to eliminate that nasty raised 4x4 truck look for a more aggressive muscle car stance.

    Clears Stock and Aftermarket Wheels & Tires. These lowering springs were engineered to be compatible with your factory size wheels and tires, as well as AmericanMuscle's pre-configured wheel and tire combo kits (specific to your generation), to assure proper clearance with no rubbing issues.

    Application. This set of four Ford Racing X-Springs are designed specifically for use on the 2015-2020 GT and EcoBoost Fastback Mustang models. Does

    not fit convertible models.

    Technical Note. The Springs are

    not compatible on vehicles equipped with the MagneRide Suspension.

        Hows the spring rate on these compared to performance pack spring rate

        • Unfortunately Ford does not provide a listing for the spring rate of the Performance pack springs, however the Ford Performance Street Lowering X-Springs seem to have a similar feel, though slightly stiffer, than the performance pack cars we have driven.

        Helpful (11)

        Will these springs also lower a performance pack gt 1" or is thia for a base GT. I have seen some places say the PP GT is already .5" lower but I can't confirm this to be true.

        • Thank you for your question about the Ford Performance Street Lowering X-Springs - Fastback (15-17 GT, EcoBoost). The 1 inch drop is going to apply to the Performance Pack GT. The Performance Pack GT does come with springs rated differently than other GTs, but the overall ride height would be the same.

        Helpful (6)

        So... in this same thread, there's conflicting responses. One response says that the GT performance pack is already lowered from the factory, and another response says that it is not. What's the truth data here?

        • The Performance Package for 15+ will sit at the same height as the non performance pack, but will have a stiffer spring rate. Only the GT350 and GT350R will have a different ride height. This was verified through the Ford Tech Service.

        Helpful (4)

        Hello guys. I drive my car daily to work, don't track (drag) the car often. Are these the right springs to use with a '17 Perf. Pack GT or are the Track springs a the right combination?

        • Yes, this will be able to be used on that style of car without issue, with it being a progressive spring rate, the quality of ride on the vehicle is mostly unchanged until cornering harder or going at a higher rate of speed, making it excellent for a daily driver.

        Helpful (3)

        I’ve currently got a a 275/35/20 and 315/35/20 on my 2017 Performance Pack. The current wheels have the same offset as factory performance pack wheels. Would these springs cause me to rub or would it just be a tight fit?

        • The Ford Performance Street Lowering X-Springs will provide minimal lowering on Performance Pack equipped Mustangs, as the Performance pack came with a 0.75"-1.0" drop.

            Lowered Life

            Paired these springs with Steeda Active shocks and Ford Performance track sway bars. For starters these S550’s are so easy to work on. The shocks and springs have definitely improved ride comfort but when you push the car hard in the twisting roads things really stiffen up. In short this 2018 GT non pp is perfect now. These cars also love all the mods for the IRS. I currently have Steeda rear cradle brace, Ford knuckle bearing,red rear diff bushings and front g track brace.

            Slight drop, instant ride change.

            I wanted a drop that changed the ride dynamics, but that wasn't too dramatic. That is what you get with these springs. I could instantly tell the difference in ride. The entire ride stiffened and way less body roll in corners. Be prepared for a very involved install. I had a lift and it was still more time consuming that initially thought.

            Ford Performance Street

            I really like these springs. I chose these because I wanted a minimal drop, which was one inch all the way around. If someone would have put these on without me knowing, I wouldnt be able to tell much of a difference from the stock springs. They do tend to be a little stiffer around corners and punching the gas though. They did exactly as advertised and dropped a perfect one inch all the way around. I'm glad I put these on and would reccomend them to people who want a cleaner wheel well look and to keep a slightly stiffer than stock suspension.

            The stance is so much better now, the ride quality didn't suffer, better feel when taking off, breaking or riding those curvy back roads. Installed and back on the road in about 2 hours.

            Subtle difference for great response

            A slight change in stance but definite improvement in handling and control. Love the new look and ride. Stiffness is noticeable but not unbearable on rough roads. No rubbing, but do need to watch frontend scrapes.

            From Eibech to Ford Performance

            While the Eibech lower springs that were already on the Mustang. They were too stiff and really didn't allow for me to use the car as a daily driver. The Ford Performance Street lowering X-Springs raised the car from a 1.6' to a 1' drop. Keeping the Mustang lower than the OEM springs would. Also, giving it a stiffer ride than OEM springs.

            23018 GT spring upgrade

            Had the springs installed by my local Ford dealer and they did a great job although it took all day. Ride quality is similar to factory springs but definitely handles corners with more precision and sway is almost eliminated. Car look's more aggressive with the degrease space between the tires and the wheel wells. A great MOD.

            Great springs for what I was after.

            These springs will lower your car by about an inch. The ride quality vs. OEM Performance Package springs is comparable with the X springs being slightly stiffer, it's not a huge difference at all. There's not as much body roll on initial turn in either. But overall if you like the ride/handling with the PP springs, you'll like these as well. These springs seem to pair well with the PP struts/shocks. Overall I'm pleased, I wanted a lower ride height with minimal changes to the ride and handling and these springs deliver on that.

            Not the same

            If you are looking for a comparison between this product and Eibach I would prefer the Eibach. I was very skeptical about these springs at first and after a lot of debating and asking advice from American muscle I purchased these instead of the Eibach springs I had on my PP 2016. I now feel like it was a total waste of money. The only thing I accomplished was the look maybe... Ride height looks great makes the car look more aggressive. Ride quality did not change much and is still a little soft not firm like those Eibach. Eibach springs on my 2016 PP dropped the front approx. 1.3" and the rear approx. 1.0" and the Ford Performance lowering springs lowered the 2019 PP approx 1.0" front and rear. I feel the 2019 PP is not well planted to the ground like the 2016 PP which felt more firmer than test driving the GT 350 in my opinion only. using the Eibach lowering springs I felt like I was in a jet fighter when hitting corners with Ford Performance springs I do not feel 100 confident in the vehicle will stay planted in corners. Totally not impressed.

            Great Ford Product

            Replaced my stock springs and have to say that the difference is awesome. The performance is night and day. Body roll reduced to nothing and ride is still very nice for performance suspension. Installation was definitely not easy unless your accustomed to working on cars regularly. If not, recommend taking it to a mechanic.
