I've got a set of stock springs you could cut. Don't know if they would work for the '13.

Steeda Sports are a popular choice. It's what I went with (and Koni Yellows).

Unfortunately I don't yet have the car, but here's a link to a pic from Sam Strano's site... not embedding as I'm not sure it's kosher here or if Sam would approve.

There are other Steeda models that lower it further, and many from other brands. I don't have religion on any of them, but there is no way in hell I would cut the springs to lower a vehicle. Just my two cents.

**** Man don't Cut springs !!
I would consider a nice 1 1/2 " drop with Eibach Pro Kit and Tokico dampers..

Cutting is a horrible idea..had a buddy that did that and man did his ride suck after..I went with Steeda..reasonable price and really changes the handling and look good luck!

it sounds like you've done zero research so far, you're setting yourself up for failure by just randomly selecting something you want and pulling the trigger.

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:
