Lowering my SGT another 1/4"...


Recommended Posts

Our cars came lowered from Shelby 1.5"s. I need to replace my shocks and springs soon so Im thinking about getting springs that will drop my car another 1/4 of an inch or so. Anyone lower their SGT more than the stock 1.5" drop? Also what springs would you recommend? Looking at the Red Eibach Sportlines or the Belltech springs.

Would you even be able to notice a 1/4"?? I know I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

I already have trouble driving over speed bumps and into driveways with my SGT. 1/4 inch lower is out of the question for me...

 

 

Well that GT500 splitter you have is another inch or so lower than the stock facia, so I can imagine! haha

you can never go wrong with Eibach's! Are you running 18" or 20" wheels? If 20" I would not drop it lower. Try to get a package of Shocks/Springs combo that is made for each other rather than just picking up parts here and there. On my 08 I'm running Griggs w/ Koni's and the handling is world class with NO issues and not even a harsh ride. On the 06 GT I switched to Eibach's Pro-kit+ including their Dampers and very impressed with their Shocks and the price you can't beat. I said I switched because the car started out with Steeda Sport Springs and Tokico D-specs and the ride sucked! No other way to put it I mean the Eibach kit was so far superior and cost over $300 cheaper!

So you're running Griggs springs (http://www.grigg ..._4328_2000_3045) with Koni Yellows? I know for sure I'm going to get the Koni Yellows as they're great shocks. Rode in my buddies SGT with the Koni Yellows and it's a night and day difference. They're also adjustable!
