Default Lowering

I was wanting to lower my Mustang, but wasn't sure if I needed to get just springs or a kit? Any tips?

Springs are the only parts "NEEDED". But for an S197 Mustang, an adjustable panhard bar is suggested in order to center the rear end after the drop.

Here are our most popular lowering parts:

all you really need is the springs but you may want to take into account how old the struts and shocks are that you have and just replace them all at the same time. When I lowered my 2006 I did it a couple of months after I bought it new so I didn't replace the shocks/struts. I have replaced them since
