Just installed the Ford Racing Springs a couple of days ago and love the stance & the feel on the road! Sit's a full inch lower than stock & I was also shocked at the improvment in handling too!



This afternoon I also installed a set of 1" wheel spacers in the rear and I really like the way it pushs them out.



Likewise I also installed a Bassani Axleback kit and love the sound. Louder but not so much that it isn't livible on long drives.


Up next? Brenspeed tuner. ;)

I think it's funny how the dogs started barking when I kicked it over.

Guess I'll have to watch the rpms when I enter the neighborhood from now on. ;)

Yup! M-5300-K.

Should drop one of our Bullitt's bout a full inch (regular GT about 1.5").

Cant say it enough about how impressed I am with the ride. Firm but still livable for daily driving. Kind'a rough & harsh on broken or uneven roads and you have to kind of watch speed bumps a little more than before but still really happy with the results.

The new additions look and sound great!

Now get out and drive that Garage Queen!
Thanks!

But if my Bullitt is anything at all - with 42,000 on the clock, she ain't a Garage Queen! Just just looks like one. ;)

Thanks again guys.

BTW - went to the local tire shop yesterday and am getting some new Kumho 255/45ZR18tires later today.

Should really compliment the lowered stance.

The lowered stance looks teriffic :cool: Did you have to adjust or change anything else in the suspension? Did it affect ride quality?

Hey thanks John,

I got the Bassani Axle-Back (05-09 GT/GT500) from American Muscle P/N# 31104.

Thanks Bob,

Actually except for having to take it easy going over speed bumps in parking lots and all but the most crude roads - ride quality doesn't seem to have suffered that much. Truthfully I think like the firmer more panted feel that they give off even in normal driving.

Moreover there’s this major “DIP” that I have to pass over when first entering my street that before seemed to really bounce me around a lot – with lots of front end up & down movement. Now there’s hardly any.

I also noticed that while it is a bit harsh on uneven or broken blacktop – there doesn’t seem to be as much wheel hopping under heavy acceleration. Almost feels like I’m running traction bars.

But the true test is this weekend as I’m going to Las Vegas and returning on Monday. If I or my female companion/co-pilot have any complaints I’ll update the thread at that time.

Truth is I was half expecting some significant loss in ride quality but if this is as bad as it gets I'm ok with it.

Other than that it feels like a totally new car. :cool:

Thanks Terry!

I'll be sure to do some more before & after pictures when I get the tires installed. Should fill out the wheel wells pretty good especially in the rear with the 1" wheel spacers.

nice ride height. I like the sound of that exhaust better than most of the others on here...probably cheaper too since it was only the axle back. good job!!!!!!!!!!

Nice hat trick Brett. I really like the sound of the exhaust and the spacer/springs combo provide an awesome stance. Very well done my man.
