Eibach Sportlines and H&R SS springs both offer about the most aggressive drop out there, about 2" to 2.5" from stock. I have the Sportlines and have measured almost exactly 2" gap between the fender to the tire.

I'm looking to lower my car too but can't decide what springs I want. If I'm going to get new springs I mind as well gets struts/shocks.

i have the H&R ss springs from Americanmuscle. great springs, great company, great price. couldnt be happier. i heard ups and down for the eibach but nothing but good things about the H&R and i can see why. i put mine in about 2 weeks ago and the drop looks good, and i didnt loose alot of ride comfort. if you are not in a hurry AmericanMuscle has them on sale often just keep an eye out. got mine for 225 i thing

Get the Eibach Sportline springs and leave the isolators in.
I have the Eibach Pro Kit springs and I simply love them they
give the perfect drop I think.The Eibach Sportline springs should
give you right around a 2" drop though.Remember to get a alignment
from a reputable shop!

more like a shop that knows what they are doing. i had to go to a mustang specific shop to get mine done. i asked about 10 other shops and none would do a lowered car. i had upr cc plates but the shop that did the alignment had to max out the camber on the front.
