Default Lowering Springs

HI all,

I have a 2004 GT with a few mods. this summer i want to lower it but not sure how low yet. Has anyone done it and what can you tell me? Was thinking about 1.5" - 2" but some issues have come up in my research. with a 2" drop do i need a camber kit? If i just go 1.5" do i still need the camber kit?Are there any bump steer issues with a 1.5" drop? Whats the ride quality like, too hard or bouncy?

If anyone can help that would be VERY much appreciated.

i put the eibach sportlines on and there great.droped it right on top of the wheels. i got caster camber plates because their needed for re-aligning.you wont have any bump steer problems and you DONT need new shocks or struts unless your car has a ton of miles on it.and the ride will be a little stiff for the first week or so but then they'll soften up.
