Default Lowered! :D

After buying some FRPP rear springs, and borrowing someones impact set I have swapped my rear springs out to get rid of that fender gap.
Very pleased with how it looks now

Need to check how far to the left it is to determine if i want a panhard to center again.
Also will need to buy my own impact set, those things are godsend

Looking real good! How does she handle now? There's a 90 degree between my house and campus. On stock suspension, it got hairy taking it at 45mph. I've taken that same corner at 60mph after my new suspension. I'd even say 65 is doable. Enjoy the sporty ride! And if you get the chance, ride in a caddy, then jump back in your stang. Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum haha

Haha. I remember my brothers first car. The pimp mobile.
Cant remember what it was but a mid 80's pontiac. That thing was a tank. Hit a bump you keep rocking for the next mile lol

So far i just have rear springs done. Might look into shocks etc later.
Are there any front springs better then oem yet dont drop the nose. Or can i just keep them
