Default Best springs for '04 GT???

I've been thinking about going with the steeda sport springs. I hear they are great for cornering, but are bad for launches. Is there a better spring out ther that will be good for launches and cornering. What do you think is the best spring for my ride? I don't want to drop it to low, preferably 1.5" maybe 2" at the most. Also what are the widest wheel/tires I can put on the back?

I think anytime you drop your ride you are going to have to sacrifice your launch, so I say get the Steeda's or maybe Kenny Brown (hes well known for suspension). As for the widest tires I plan to go with 10.5 in the back don't know if you can go anywider than that.

I've been meaing to ask you, do you have your front bumper painted black where the tag would go or did you do that in photoshop (or other program) to cover your tag. I looks good with the stripe there.

Nah...just blacked out my license plate. Where I live if I don't have a plate on the front I get fined.

thats how it is in MD too. I got fined once; 50 bucks[:'(]. The dealership didn't drill my holes right so the tag holes don't line up and I never took the time to fix it.

Have a few questions. 1. how much did they lower your car? 2. It cutting springs safe? and 3. how much did they run you or did you find them at a junkyard somewhere?
