Hey all looking for some input on what the best inexpensive way to lower my 99GT convertible. Want to close the gap in the wheel wells and get some better handling but do not want to get a harsh ride. Want it to still be enjoyable to ride around in on a afternoon cruise. Looked at a lot of different springs and shocks and not sure what the best route to go is. Also when lowering is it a must to put the C/C plates on? I have looked at the Steeda springs and the Eibach pro sport springs not sure what to do. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Consider changing your struts/shocks at the same time. Typical lowering springs, even mild ones, generally have higher spring rates than stock. These higher rates will overburden stock, especially old stock struts/shocks. As a result, ride quality will suffer. Go over to MM's site. They have a 10-part discussion on suspension upgrades to Fox and sn95 Mustangs . There are a couple dedicated to springs and dampers.
