Default Which springs for the rear?

I want to lower the back end 1 inch. What are the best springs?

(I'm going for comfort over ride handling)

oh, and do I need to replace other parts too, if I'm just lowering the back end 1 inch?

thanks everyone!

Roush is your best bet

Ok, I just looked at the Roush site, and am going about to order these:



look good? It doesn't say say how much it lowers the back end, do you know?

thanks

3/4" drop with the Roush shocks.
Evens her out pretty good.

I would get the matching Roush shocks also. $174.95 MossMustang.
Or http://store.roushperformance.com/detail.aspx?ID=324
$124.95 Roush RearSprings
$25 or soforPanHard and SwayBarPoly bushings fromMossMustang.
Bout $340 after shipping and such+ the install $$s.

I didnt try Roush Springs with stock shocks but would recommend
getting the Roush Shocks at the same time. I hear that the
stockers will wear out faster with Roush rear springs than OEM
springs. [:@]
