Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Pedders Sports Ryder Front and Rear Lowering Springs available for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. So in this video, I'll be going over the benefits of adding a set of lowering springs to your Mustang, the very specific application these are built for, and of course the styling and appearance of the drop you can expect when added to your suspension. I'll top the video off with the installation letting you know up front here it will get a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, not the toughest job in the world but it's a little bit more involved than like a direct bolt-on cold air intake.
The Pedders Sports Ryder Front and Rear Lowering Springs will be for any '05 to '14 Mustang owner who's looking to pick up a very, very unique set of springs specifically built for handling hard launches on both the street and the strip, all while offering a moderate drop in ride height. Now, this particular set of springs I have here from Pedders is currently the only option available on our site that offers a progressive front end and a linear rear. What that basically means is the progressive front end will adapt more to hard turns, say, on the street, while the back end with the linear springs will be more predictable, better for hard launches like on the strip. Now, all while offering a 1-inch drop all around, which is pretty moderate, but is good enough to get rid of some of that wheel gap without being overbearing and slamming the car.
Now, if you're not gonna be launching your car too hard, you're probably not gonna reap the benefits of this fixed progressive front end and linear rear, in which case you'd probably wanna go with a full progressive or full linear kit depending on your choice. In which case there are tons of options available to fit that preference. Whenever you lower the center of gravity on your Mustang, you're immediately improving the suspension and handling performance of your car but the spring rate will play a huge factor in how exactly the suspension will perform. Now, the front two springs are a progressive spring rate which means they offer a comfortable ride under normal driving conditions, but they'll stiffen up as you take a faster or harder turn. They're less predictable but they're able to react in different driving situations which is perfect for a daily driver or a street performance car.
Now, on the back end here the linear rear springs are going to be more predictable which allows the driver making hard launches, like at the drag strip, to know exactly how the springs will react at all times given a set spring rate or a linear spring rate. Now, when you put these two together, you're making a perfect combination for the guys with both street and drag applications, especially during hard launches. Now, putting a progressive front and linear rear is not a very common setup at all. In fact, Pedders is one of the first options I've ever seen personally to offer this particular setup in one kit. Now, obviously, this is gonna be geared for the guys willing to give up a more comfortable rear end setup for one that is race ready and especially for the guys doing a lot more track and strip driving.
Now, if you're just doing a strict daily driver car setup, then a progressive front and a progressive rear is probably best in your favor. However, if you're just running a strict track car, linear is probably what you're looking for. If you are doing a little bit of both and you are constantly launching the car but you still want a comfortable front end, this is gonna be the kit for you. Now, as I just mentioned, this is a very uncommon setup so finding a different styling and appearance aspect, as far as ride head is concerned, will be pretty difficult to say the least. Now, as I said in the beginning, this offers a 1-inch drop all the way around the vehicle, which is enough to remove some of t
