Lowering 2012 5.0 an inch on stock springs & struts? Eibach Pro-Kit Springs?
I already looked through the forums for an answer to this, and the answer seems to be NO, you cant lower it correctly without adding a new suspension! But since I am stubborn as hell, I am going to ask anyway. I have 2012 5.0 Premium, with ford 5 post polished silver 19" wheels and 1500 miles on the odo. I want to lower the car about an inch to give a more aggressive stance (without bottoming out or scraping every speed bump I come near). I dont mind a slightly stiffer ride, but I dont want to destroy the ride quality. I dont mind spending $200-$350 to achieve this, but I dont want to drop $600-$2000 on a full handling package to drop an inch (yes I know that there are other benefits, but I feel that my car handles well enough). The Ford racing P springs were made for the 2005-2009 mustangs, so I am not buying strut mounts and dampers from older vehicles to make a part that wasnt made for my vehicle work. The Eibach Pro-Kit Springs 35125.140, seem like a good bet, but I dont know if it will destroy the stock suspension in a few years, without replacing many of the stock suspension components. I also dont know if it will kill my ride quality. What do you guys think?
