do they help out? better than stock or do you think a stock spring with a bag would be about the same?

I dont really know how much improvement they are over stock springs, but i think there would be some. I have a good bit of drag suspension parts on my car so they all kinda work together.

I also have Eibach drag springs with the airbag. The car hooks great, but I also installed upper/lowers, lift bars, 50/50s, and 90/10s at the same time so I dont know how the springs would work with stock stuff.

i noticed a HUGE improvment when i switched from the bbk lowering springs to eibach drags. i also switched the stock struts out with strange 10way adjustables. but i would say they are deff worth it. i noticed less spinning off the line with just the installation of the springs and struts. stock control arms also

five0fm----How did your car sit when you changed the springs over? I have BBK Springs (light blue in color) and I want to change them out as the rear sags a bit, even when I just put Lakewood 70/30 front and 50/50 shocks/struts on, I have stock wheels and the 225/50 tires, I'm hoping it wont look like I installed a lift kit going to eibach or steeda drags, any pics even on a different year stang would be great, thanks!

ill try to get some pics up. but i had the same problem. it seemed like my car sagged in the rear with the bbks and stock struts. i also had a HUGE camber problem in the front. the springs fixed the camber problem. the eibachs say a 1/4 to 1/2 in drop in height should be noticed over stock springs. my front end does sit a little higher then the rear but it doesnt seem like i installed a lift kit. my friends and i were pretty shocked b.c the ride hieght changed so little.
