Review & Installation Video

What's up, everybody? I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, and this is gonna be my detailed overview and install of the Steeda Sport Springs, available for your 2005 to 2014 Mustang Coupe. In this video, I plan on talking about some of the unique benefits and attributes you can expect when using the Steeda Sport Springs on your S197. We'll talk a little bit more about the drop you can expect. And then finally, we'll cover some of the big points of the installation. And right up front, there is a little bit of work involved, obviously, to get a new set of springs installed. But it's really not brain surgery, guys, so I'm going two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with some more detail coming up later on. Now, the Steeda Sport Springs are one of only a handful of spring options for the S197 on the site that will offer you that standard or linear spring rate, making them a great choice for the owners who might be looking for that over the varying spring rate of a progressive spring. Because of this, I would say these are gonna appeal to the owners who are more serious about improving their handling performance over their appearance per se, because these aren't gonna offer a big drop. Instead, they're gonna offer one of the milder drops in the category. Now, most trusted name in the Mustang industry is a term that I might throw around a lot here at AM, and admittedly so, but if there's ever one company that really does represent that, it is Steeda. In fact, they've been around for almost 30 years now, and over that time have amassed more wins and records than Roush, Saleen, and Shelby, combined. So, obviously, they know what they're doing in the competitive world, and it definitely shows in the results. And without a doubt, some of the parts that have allowed or enabled such performance at the track are their components and the suspension, but more specifically their springs. And like a lot of their other competition-focused springs, the sports that we have here are a linear spring. And what does that mean to you guys? Well, progressive springs are definitely going to dominate the market from an availability standpoint because oftentimes they're better suited for most road-going cars out there, because they do offer a varying spring rate with a lighter initial spring rate, and this just means it's gonna be a little bit more comfortable under everyday driving conditions. Now, the problem with the varying spring rate or a progressive rate spring is that varying spring rate, especially if you're serious about competing with your car. For instance, if you're serious about road course racing, for instance, you might be seeing one spring rate at corner entry and then a totally different spring rate at apex. Now, is this a big deal for most owners out there watching this video? Not exactly. But for those of you guys who are very serious about competing or your handling performance, more often than not, a linear spring will be the way to go because it will be more predictable, thanks to that same exact spring rate, no matter how much the spring is compressed. So, what about your spring rates here with these Steeda Sports Springs? Well, you're looking at a 200-pound front spring and a 175-pound rear spring, respectively. And with that said, most owners watching this video probably aren't interested in setting lap records out there. Instead, you're just looking for a spring to drop your Mustang a little bit and improve your handling. And if that's you, the Steeda sport will still definitely help you out in that regard. You can still rock these on your daily drive without issue. In fact, many of our customers do. There's a lot of solid reviews on the site for these springs. Be sure to check them out before buying, just to help you with your decision. Now, with that in mind, don't expect a massive difference in appearance because these things aren't gonna offer the biggest drop. In fact, you're only looking at just an inch in the front and an inch in the corner for the rear. Now, that minor drop will help dig into that factory four-by-four stance a little bit, help eliminate some of that wheel gap. But again, it's not gonna be the biggest drop out there for you. Some people might like that, others might prefer that more slammed look. Now, if you do prefer that more dunked or slam look, then definitely check out the Eibach SPORTLINE, for instance, as it will be one of the most aggressive for the S197. Now, I'm always gonna tell you guys, your best bet is to pair up an aftermarket spring like this with a set of aftermarket shocks and struts. No, that's not me telling you to buy more stuff, I'm just being completely honest. In my experience, using a spring like this on a factory shock or strut will typically not yield the best performance or the best ride quality, and will oftentimes shorten the lifespan of your factory shocks and struts, maybe even blow them out if you have a higher mileage S197. Yes, I know adding aftermarket shocks and struts will ultimately add to the price of admission, however, you're gonna be installing these springs, you're gonna be in there doing the work. You'd hate to have to do the same thing twice. Another thing to consider, check out some caster camber plates or maybe alignment bolts, just to help you correct your alignment once these things are installed. And you might also wanna think about checking out a Panhard bar as well to help you center that axle once the car is lower. I will say that because these offer more of a mild drop, this won't be as exaggerated if you use something a little bit more aggressive. However, it is something to be mindful of. Pricing-wise, these things are gonna fall right around the $200 mark, which nothing crazy, middle of the road as far as other spring options are concerned. But if you do decide to add some of those other components we just talked about, obviously, that price will go up a little bit. But at the end of the day, guys, whatever you decide to add or not add to your car is ultimately your call. But let's switch gears. Let's talk about the installation here briefly. We're not gonna do step-by-step stuff, but what I can tell you is that if you've ever done the springs on an S197 before, you know what you're getting yourself into. Really not that difficult, so I'm going two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with maybe four hours to a half a day in the shop or garage, depending on your expertise and, of course, your setup. Now, speaking of setup, you will need a lift, jack or jack stands, a number of different sockets and wrenches, a spring compressor will always help you out, as well as a pole jack to maybe lower that rear end to help you do those rear springs. The fronts will definitely be the more time-consuming part of the job here, guys, because you do have to remove the entire strut assembly from the car in order to remove the factory spring and install the new Steeda spring using your spring compressor. The rears, on the other hand, definitely the easier part of the job here. Just disconnect your sway bar mounts and the lower shock mounts, the rear end should sag a little bit. This will allow you to remove the factory springs and install the new Steeda springs with ease. Again, not the most difficult job in the world. Just leave yourself a few hours in the garage or driveway and you should be good to go. So to wrap things up, guys, I'd say the Steeda Sport Springs will definitely be for the S197 owners out there who value handling performance over slamming the car to the ground. Yes, the subtle drop of the sport springs will improve your appearance slightly, but this is definitely gonna be for the owners who prefer to go with that linear spring rate along with Steeda's trusted name in the aftermarket. So, guys, that is my review of the Steeda Sport Springs, which you can grab right here at americanmuscle.com.

Improves Handling. Lower your Mustang's center of gravity by installing a set of Steeda Sport Springs, which will reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in the corners and excessive nose-dive under hard braking. Steeda Sport Springs are great for daily driving, street and even occasional track use.

Lowered Stance. Not only does a set of Steeda Sport Springs improve the handling performance of your Mustang, but they also improve its overall appearance by lowering the ride height approximately 1.0" front and 1.25" rear to eliminate that ugly "4x4" tire to fender gap, for a more aggressive street 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 Steeda Sport Lowering Springs are designed for use on 2005-2010 V6 Coupes as well as 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustang Coupes, including the GT and Bullitt models. Does not fit Shelby GT500 or 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs.

5 Top Rated Questions

Does these springs require any additional parts?

  • Will they REQUIRE any extra parts? Nope. You can install these with absolutely no other parts, and the car will be fine. ...For a while. The problem is, when you lower the car, you change the geometry of the suspension. In the front, you will increase camber, which might seem awesome but basically just results in your tires getting worn out faster. You can get a pair of bolts called "camber bolts" that can fix that. In the rear, lowering the car will move the entire SRA to the driver's side. It'll be maybe a quarter to a half inch, tops, but it is noticeable. You can get an adjustable Panhard bar for about $100 on this site to fix that. Neither of these parts are strictly necessary. My car is lowered, and I don't have either of them on mine. It works just fine. You know what they say, though, forewarned is forearmed...

On Steeda's website the installation instructions for these springs indicate the bumpstops need to be trimmed to 1/2 their stock height. Is this for both the front and back? And is this even necessary if I am replacing the stock bumpstops with the Ford Performance Jounce Bumper Kit (05-14 All)?

  • Both front and rear bump stops should be trimmed to 1/2 of their height with this kit if you are using OEM bump stops. With Ford performance jounce bumpers we do not recommend trimming.

Fitment Will these work with 20" wheels??

  • These will definitely work with 20" wheels. The first posted customer picture shows the fitment with 20" wheels, so check that out. You don't want to go too wide in the front though, they'll rub when you turn too tight.

    Amazing

    These springs transformed my car. They don't ride too rough, they're not low enough to scrape everything, but they're just low enough to close up that ugly wheel gap. Goodbye 4x4 look, hello sports car. The car still rides really close to stock and takes corners like a champ.

    I bought these lower springs because I wanted to close up the gap between fender and tire. But also didn’t want to go real low. This set dropped the rear 1 1/2 inches and the front 1 inch. Car still rides nice and handling is better.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    The steeda springs were meant to lower my mustang 1 1/4" in the back and 1" in the front. That's exactly what I got. I will say it is stiffer going over bumps but it looks much better. I followed the video on YouTube and the back took 1 hour to complete. The front took about 1 hour per side, a little more involved. I'm happy with the results. I highly recommend getting an alignment when you're done.

    Great Improvement!

    I was worried the coupe noted on the description was going to be an issue on my convertible, it wasn’t! These springs are top notch. With these and a Whiteline adjustable panhard bar the feel is amazing. The convertible required removing the braces but the AM installation notes helped with that! They lowered the car 1” in front and about 1 1/4” at the rear! Install time was 2 hours each axle, working on jack stands and also being my first time installing springs.

    Switched from progressive racing springs

    I switched to the Steeda Sport springs because I found the initial spring rate of my progressive 'racing' springs to be too soft for track work. Also, the ride was bouncy just driving around town. The technician at my dealer installed them and we both agree the ride quality is improved. Feels more like a race car!

    Sticking with Steeda

    4/5 because I wish I went with a lower drop. 1" drop is much bette than factory stance but 1.5-2" would be perfect! If you are debating whether to go with these or the other Steeda springs, go with the bigger drop!

    As advertised

    I installed these using 4 jack stands and a jack while doing the shocks and struts and install was pretty easy. You'll need an alignment afterwards, and I needed a set of camber bolts to get everything aligned properly. The ride isn't much rougher than stock but the handling is much better, although some of that can probably be attributed to the shocks and struts as well.

    Just right and great price

    I would recommend these for anyone looking for a slight drop without having to worry about speed bumps, etc. I purchased these and only installed the rear springs hoping to level the stance however the rear ended up being slightly lower than the front. I drove like this until I could get together funds for new front struts and caster plates. Rears are super easy. Fronts took a full day installing new struts and caster plates with them. I'd strongly consider getting a quote for a shop to install the front suspension parts. It is now all complete and very happy with these springs. Love the new stance! Don't hesitate, buy them!

    Better ride

    The Ford racing springs I had were too stiff for the street, so the ride was too punishing. The Steedas, while still stiff, offer a less harsh ride, but offer more firmness than Ford's stock springs.
