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.

Fitment Will these work with 20" wheels??

Jsoto69

  • 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.

Does these springs require any additional parts?

Will2IAm

  • 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...

Hello, will these fit a 2014 GT convertible?

VC

  • The Steeda Sport Springs are designed specifically for the Coupe Mustang. A Convertible Will be heavier, causing the car to sit lower, and increasing the resing load on the springs. It is not advised to put coupe only springs onto your convertible as they were not designed with the extra weight and weight balance of a convertible in mind.

Will this work if paired with gt500 strutmount on a gt/cs coupe?

GerardoL

  • The 2011-2014 Mustangs require the use 2005-2010 Ford Performance lower springs and struts/shocks for proper installation. If you are installing Steeda Sport Springs on a 2005-2010 Mustang, then this part will work. But, if you are installing Steeda Sport Springs on a 2011-2014 mustang these will not fit.

    A great mod

    This is my favorite mod I have done yet for overall improvement of the car. The stock springs were all wrong for the car and now I really can see that after this install. I love how the car handles better now and feels more connected to the road but still has a good smooth ride. I do not think the ride can be compared to the boat like ride the stock springs had at all. The ride feels much more firm although the springs do erase the small bumps very well. The car really is tracking straighter and seems to steer more accurately now. I think the car was slightly out of alignment before and now after this mod and a realignment it is perfect.

    Looks Great, Rides Great, Just GREAT!

    I LOVE these springs! They tightened up the ride, lessened the nose dive on braking, and I can finally take some corners! I had them professionally installed and had the alignment done at the same time. I really liked the fact that these springs don't require any extra kits. They were able to get the alignment perfect. The lower ride height really made the wheels pop and gave it a great stance. Couldn't be happier!

    Steeda Sport Springs

    Springs went in without issues. I also installed Tokico HP shocks/struts and GT500 upper strut mounts. I didn't want to set her on the ground but an inch or so improved the looks and handling. I also installed the Eibach Camber bolts and the Alignment folks said it wasn't that far out and they had no issues. The struts/springs went in rather easily since I had everything pre assembled. Just removed the old and put the new in and I did everything in about three hours taking my time with a floor jack and jack stands.

    Great look, perfect ride

    I installed these on my 08' GT with fr500 wheels 10" rear 9" front. It looks great. At first the drop was only about an inch then by the end of the day they settled in and it's like 1.5 inches. Ride quality is just as good as stock. Installation is very easy, only a few bolts, I recommend using a spring compressor tho. I would recommend to anyone. Great product!

    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!

    Best ride for lowered look

    I replaced my sr springs for these the Sr springs were good and I had no issues from a performance standpoint but they were very rough and I felt every bump. Did some research and everything pointed to these springs for lower but close to stock ride quality. If you're looking to lower your car and not sacrifice much on ride quality these are what I recommend.

    Perfect

    I had my car lowered on Eibach sportline springs and it was perfect with 20" staggered AMR wheels. Swapped wheels to 15/17 drag wheels with 28" tires and the front tires would not clear the fender. I bought the Steeda sport springs to use for the front only. Drop is the perfect advertised 1" up front.

    Steeda Lowering Springs

    Gave the ride about a 1.0 inch drop all the way around. Was at 29.5" before, at 28.5" now. Front and back. Thought I could get away with just the lowering springs, but within a week was getting that popping sound coming from the strut mounts. Upgraded to the Steeda heavy duty adjustable strut mounts and Koni shocks/struts. Awesome stance! Definitely recommend.

    Perfect ride height, noticeable handling improvement!

    Bought these springs cuz I didn't want too much of a drop. my ride height sat perfect after they were installed! Didn't take long either, had a shop do it within an hour or 2. Had that 4x4 fender gap on my rear wheels and this closed that gap! center of gravity is certainly noticeable while driving and no more fender gap! I would recommend pairing these with shocks and struts, adjustable panhard bar, and lower control arms for a full handling improvement. I love the stance and quality!

    Improved handling

    Bought these spring with the adjustable panhandle bar. I must say the ride difference is night and day from the stock springs. My car rides a little rough now but over all handling is significantly improved in the corners and during hard launch(wheel hop reduced significantly). No more nose dive under breaking. Over all drop was about 1.25 front and 1.5 in the rear. There is some neg camber even after my alignment. So grab the camber bolts as well. Do it right the first time out.

    This is the first time I've ever put springs in my Mustang. They dropped it about 1.25 to 1.5 inches lower than the stock springs (I forgot to measure). It looks greats without being too low or sacrificing ride comfort. Well worth the price.

    What should have been installed from the factory!

    I went with the sports versus the ultralites as my car is a daily driver. I wanted to get rid of the 4x4 look the mustangs come with from the factory but didn't want to kill driveability. These are the perfect choice! dropped the car down enough for a mean stance but now low enough to scrape on speed bumps. The springs also don't feel any different than stock during normal driving, not until you gun it, hit the brakes hard, or go around a corner fast do you realize you made a great choice!

    I put these on my '13 GT/CS along with Adjustable control arms, relocation brackets and a adjustable panhard bar so it took a while to get it all in. The drop was just right and the spring rate is perfect for a daily driver / weekend racer.
