Default Eiback springs on OEM shocks or BC coilovers?

hi guys, I begin to shop better suspension for my mustang. severals on this forum has installed springs on oem shocks and others coilovers. But by experience on a other car I had installed Eibach pro kit springs on oem shock and after 10 000miles the shocks began to have leaks.

I'm confused, what do you suggest me between coils Eibach pro kit or Bc coilovers?

many thanks

I imagine you will get some responses this evening. Your post times are not typically active times for this forum. I find they are evening posters. Patience will get you an answer.

I have Eibach springs that I have not installed yet. I am also curious if the OEM shocks work with the springs. A stiffer spring usually needs a stiffer rebound on the shock to control it properly.

I apologize I don't know how is work here because I'm new. Usually in other forum when you ask a question people give a answer in the same day.

I'm agree with you, I'm not sure if lowering springs with stocks struts give a good result. I think I try coilovers.... did you hear something negative about BC coilovers?

Generally, they don't give good results, but that really depends on exactly what results you are looking for.

If you just want the looks, and aren't so concerned with the handling, then it may be an acceptable path. If handling is a priority for you, then a good set of shocks/struts should be your starting point, and build from there.

There are plenty of options between lowering springs/stock shocks/struts and coilovers, so not really sure why you're focused on those two extremes.

I'd recommend these springs:

With these shocks and struts:

And this adjustable panhard bar:

I ran the FRPP springs on OEM shocks for about a year and it was not bad. But the ride was better once i put the new shocks on.
