Default FRPP K springs on V6

Hey guys i will be lowering my 3.7 with some springs in the near future, i want to achieve about a 1 to 1.5 (1.25 inches ideally) inch drop on my car, I am hesitant with getting the eibach pro kits as they only lower the front about .8 of an inch. After doing a lot of research I found that the FRPP K springs will lower a GT 1.5 inches.
Will i run into any issues if I install these springs on my v6?
I dont want to change out my stuts and shocks so i dont want to go lower than 1.5.
Plus please let me know what springs your rides are sitting on and how you like them or not

Get the Eibach pro's made for your car.

I have them in mine-so my photo gallery for before and afters..

initially the lowering was an inch or so- but after about 500 miles towing around the trailer in the end it was nearly 1.25" front and rear-----somewhere I posted what it exactly was. stock height, then immediately upon install then after been driven-- but that is close to exactly what you say you want.

What is meant is to get springs that are for your car as in for a V6.

Looking here 2010-2014 Mustang Springs

You can see in the descriptions if they are for a GT, a V6 or both. The K springs don't look to be for a V6

It should also be mentioned that the stock springs and struts aren't going to work well with lowering springs, you'll get a bouncy ride. Some go with the stockers but it's recommended to change the springs, shocks and struts at the same time.

Other things that should be installed when lowering; an adjustable panhard bar for centering the car over the axle, camber plates or camber bolts for adjusting camber and an upper control arm to adjust pinion angle.
