Pick a drop level and we could help you find it

I love my H&R Super Sport... was less than $200 from AM. But the lower you go the more parts you will have to buy

Amen, Entaille.

Do some research.

Do you want a 1.5" drop? 2" drop? Somewhere in between? How do you want the handling characteristics to play out? Daily driver? Weekend track car? Need more deets

I just ordered my FRPP 1" lowering springs today. Didn't want to go to low but hate the stock height.

I've had 1" lowering springs on my S197 and I'm currently running 1.5" drop springs. My buddy has 2" drop springs on his S197. In my opinion, the 1.5" springs are perfect. They look great, handle well, don't kill the straight line traction, and they don't ride like crap.

I'm running UPR Pro Series springs which are actually made for us by Eibach, and they spec out exactly the same as Eibach Pro Kit springs.


Of course, when you lower an S197 Mustang, it shifts the axle over to the driver's side, so an adjustable panhard bar is highly recommended in order to center the rear axle after the drop. Here's what I used:
