Is lowering your Mustang worth it?
Lowering is a key part of many Mustang builds. Not only does lowering the center of gravity lead to improved handling, but a lowered Mustang is more attractive as well. Here’s how to get the right stance for your performance and appearance goals.
Are Lowering springs good for your car?
Because lowering means getting stiffer springs, there is less weight transfer when you hit the gas or brake hard. This means you’ll enjoy faster acceleration and quicker stops. Lowered vehicles are more aerodynamic. There’s less air hitting the wheels and tires (that are not streamlined shapes).
What’s better coilovers or lowering springs?
Unlike lowering springs, coilovers offer a much greater range of adjustability including ride height, spring pre-load, shock damping, and rebound. Typically, coilover sets feature even stiffer spring rates than a set of lowering springs alone, again sacrificing ride quality for cornering performance.
Should I lower my Mustang GT?
While considered by many as mainly an appearance mod, lowering your Mustang reduces its center of gravity, improving cornering and reducing body roll. There is such a thing as too low, however, and ensuring your suspension can handle the drop will maximize the resulting performance.
Are lowering springs good for daily driving?
If you want to lower your daily driver, then look to install lowering spring instead. Lowering spring will lower your car and still provide you with the handling improvement (although not as much). However, this handling improvement is usually enough if you are driving on the street with your daily driver.
Why you shouldn’t lower your car?
A lowered car may put extra stress on various other suspension and steering system parts, leading to excessive wear and even premature failure. Tires may rub against sheet metal or suspension parts, causing damage to both. The ride will almost always be harsher, as most lowering methods reduce spring travel.
