Looking at lowering springs But...

I want to lower my car but I'm Sad to say love the mushy feel of the stock springs. I already have a Lowered Bone Jarring Mustang,, so I bought this car to have a plush ride.

Who make a lowering spring that closer to stock feel? I understand that I wont be able to keep it all the way stock but close enough is fine for me.

Vogtland's?? heard they were the stiffest

Eibach Pro Kit (progressive) heard those are nice

ST (suspension Techniques) any feed back on them?

Anyone run the cheap springs on Ebay.

I LOVE my Vogtland springs. On normal roads with small bumps the ride is MUCH improved over stock. On old roads with potholes and bigger bumps the ride is more jarring that stock though.

If you want a smoother ride, you definitely want to go with progressive springs. They are softer for the first part of the travel, and then get progressively stiffer.

I am pretty sure that Suspension Techniques are linear rate, not progressive.

The statements in this post are my opinions only.
If you have a problem with them, please PM me
and keep the boards clear of flame wars.

I've had Eibach's in my bird for 5 months now, and I love them. Just the right height, and the ride quality seems no different to me. I also have 4 year-old Tokico Blue struts/shocks, too.

I have Suspension Techniques (linear rate) springs, Monroe gas-matics, and polyurethane bushings in my Fiero, and the ride stinks.

97 LX, 4.6, Dynomax catback, Mustang MAF/intake tube and Aviator throttle body, Xcalibrator2 by Lonnie at BOC, 180 t-stat, Super Coupe wheels with 235/60/16's, Kenny Brown strut tower brace, Tokico Blues, Eibach Pro-kit, some strategically placed MN12 Performance polyurethane pieces, '02 Grand Marquis transmission

Submariners do it deeper...
