Downside to lowering?Definitely staying stock. I was contemplating lowering springs, but after some basic research, there was a lot more, ahem, down side than upside. I have a 2020 base with a black accent pack, which means I have the 19" wheels with AS tires. I'm in Cali, so about the only thing I think I need is summer tires. Thinking Conti Extreme Contacts.
So after I ordered the car in July, I was planning on mod list. Roush blower, wheels, exhaust, etc. I get the car and start driving it and all that goes out the window. The active exhaust sounds way better in the car than I anticipated. Since I’m not doing a blower, wheels and tires aren’t a necessity anymore. Probably just gonna do tint for now. It’s weird, never owned a stock car or a car with a warranty and figured maybe I should see what that is like. Lol
I’ll do wheels at some point, wear the stock tires down first.
anybody else decide to keep theirs stock?
Having to probably get realignment, and running your front splitter into those pesky parking lot stops. The main benefit to lowing seems to be mostly about appearance, but I think the profile of the ss550 with the 19"'s looks really good. Oh, and it was kind of a play on words, you know? "Lowering" "DOWNside". get it? Yeah, I like dumb jokes . . . It's a dad thing.
It’s all going to depend on your springs and what else you’re planning on changing (bushings, shocks, struts, etc etc) ….lowering your mustang will change the steering and suspension's geometry. You will give up a softer ride for a more firm ride as the handles changes how it reacts to bumps and dips in the road.
