Default Lowering Suspension

Hey, everyone. I own a 2014 V6 Mustang with 19in Wheels and was wondering how much should I ask a shop to lower the the suspension to give it that muscle look? I don't know much about cars (mechanical side), but I'd figure that's how you'd get the car to set lower. >

A set of lowering springs would be the proper way. They usually lower the car 1-2inches. I wouldn't go more than 2in

You'll also give up a little in the ride quality, as in harshness/ firmness. But it'll be worth it.

my car is lowered 2 inches (according to the previous owner but its lower than my friends 98 so I'm lost on that part) and corners like a dream but the ride quality (and I'm being very modest about it) sucks a$$ if you live in a bumpy area because of the amount of suspension travel that is being taken away and the ride height you might bottom out a lot

These springs lower the car about an inch and a half, which is a good look.

^^They handle and ride well too.

But you'll want the shop to add an adjustable panhard bar to center the rear after the drop:

What part of Florida are you in? We have a shop in Pompano Beach, FL if you are in the area.

We have some great springs for the V6 which will lower it 1 1/4 inch front, 1 1/2 inch rear ... give it a nice aggressive stance, without sacrificing ride quality ... here are some reviews:

Here is review on a GT -
I had the Steeda Ultra-Lite Springs installed on my 2011 Mustang GT, as I wanted to get rid of the wheel gap and give my car a more agressive stance. The ride quality is unsurpassed and the handling far better than the OE setup. The ride is not noticable stiffer or harsher, which I wanted to accomplish, as the vehicle is my daily driver. The drop looks awesome with my Brembo setup!!! Thanks Gus and the entire Steeda Team in Pompano Beach for being professional, friendly and customer oriented! I will definitely be back for more Steeda products for my ride! - See more at: http://www.steeda.com/steeda-mustang....jtB0aagM.dpuf
Do yourself a favor and get rid of your 4x4 wheel gap! Mustangs should come from the factory with these springs! - See more at: http://www.steeda.com/steeda-mustang....jtB0aagM.dpuf
Let me know if I can help assist with a discount code or if I can help answer any questions.

Best Regards,

TJ
