I don't have any "floatiness" with the Koni STR.Ts (and OEM springs). It is now about as firm as I would ever want it. Plus I like my stance now...

YerBuddy: Thanks. Your car looks awesome dropped like that. I didn't want to slam it either, but I think the gaps are just a bit large for a mustang or any sporty looking car for that matter so it's good to see your results.

I think what TJ was trying to say was that our springs offer the best ride quality of any aftermarket springs on the market. However, the ride quality isn't as good as it would be if you also install aftermarket dampers as the factory dampers are not designed with our spring rate(s) and height in mind. With aftermarket dampers you will get a better ride quality with our springs than just OEM dampers and our springs.

We can definitely setup a package or you. Shoot me a PM and I'd be glad to help.
