Looks good. I'm assuming this is your car? Or are you planning on purchasing it? What's the mod list?

Yeah it's my car, and i'm not sure how much I should lower it.. Any ideas?

And the things I've done to the car include...

New Wheels, Black turn signal housings, black mustang emblem and faux gas cap, LED map lights (makes car look sooooo much nice at night), New radio, Flowmaster exhaust (don't remember which off hand), calipers are red although they need to be cleaned, and a few other things

Any recommendations on which lowering kit to get? I don't want it so low my tired scrub the inside of the fender well, but still want to get rid of that ugly gap between tire and well..

No need for multiple threads on the same thing. If you posted in the wrong section just ask one of us mods to move it.

Eibach pro-kit should suffice.

Quick and cheap mod is mirror caps. They should've come with them from the factor and it just kind of makes everything look more polished. I loved them on my '05 Torch.

It's already a nice looking car. I really like those wheels. If you just want to make it look a little more aggressive, maybe a chin spoiler or GT front bumper. It gets rid of that friendly looking V6 bumper.

This was my red '05 V6 just for reference to what I'm talking about.

It was also lowered on Ford K springs on 18s. It gave a pretty good drop, but I didn't have any issues with clearance.

I always really hated the 05-09 v6 bumpers, and how they made the cars look (had a '06 Torch Red Pony Package v6 a few years back)

But the above mods on Tanner's example make the car look awesome!

If I were to ever get an 05-09 car as a DD I'd totally do the same mods, but maybe put my factory brembo wheels on it.
