Welcome to MF's, Robbie

Prior to answering any of your questions, I have one for you! What are the ULTIMATE goals for your car? Regardless of what they happen to be, it is always important to consider this question with ALL modifications. I want you to look forward to EVERY drive you take in your car

Well this car is going to be a summer daily driver. Im going to be doing some slight mods to it. I was looking at the gt40 swap with a decent cam. Put some 3.73 gears in the car and a h pipe with a good flowing cat back. So i want a decent suspension set up for street driving. thanks for your time and help

You will find a lot of spring rate data on the internet. Your choice will come down to how you want to use the car. I recently installed Ford Racing 'B' springs on my v6. The ride is firm around corners without scraping on every rock and bump out there. The drop was not as much as advertised, probably because the stock springs were about shot. My Cobra has an Eibach Pro Kit on it that feels about the same (spring rates are nearly identical but the drop is lower) but my floor jack will not fit under the cross member to lift the car. I have to pull in the garage on a few 2x12 scaps laying flat before the jack will fit.

Robbie.... if looking for not only a lower ride, but an improvement in ride quality, I would suggest a set of properly matched dampers to go along with your new springs. You are best to also install a set of CC plates, to address the negative camber you will gain on your drop. This will also allow you to add a bit of caster, to improve your grip when cornering.

You might contact Sharad of UPR or any of the several site sponsors here and will be happy to give you some input on what may be the best way to go. Keep in mind, that suspension mods add NVH. This is a by-product of nearly all suspension mods for the Mustang, so consider this, if you begin to build your suspension up.
