1 | SVE S550 LOWERING SPRINGS

2015-22 Mustang Lowering Spring Guide - 2015-22 Mustang Lowering Spring Guide


Starting at number one are the SVE Lowering Springs! One of the first things you may notice from the factory is that your S550 sits a tad higher in the front than the rear. The easiest way to solve this problem is to go with a set of our SVE progressive springs! Not only will you reduce the center of gravity and body roll of your car, but you’ll enjoy daily driving. When you do lower your S550, it’ll reduce the squat during acceleration and excessive nose-dive during hard braking. This is the perfect suspension kit when driving on the street or the track. These springs will close that wheel gap while also providing a level stance for your Mustang. The progressive rate in these springs will provide an excellent ride quality similar to OEM quality.

    Are Lowering Springs Worth It On An S550 Ford Mustang?

    100% yes, they are! This is one of the best low-budget and high-performance mods you can do when getting started on your build. Not only will your S550 look better, but the grip and suspension response you’ll receive will benefit you when driving! Nobody likes wheel gap, so take the opportunity to make the change and make your S550 a beast today!


    Will Lowering Springs Affect Ride Quality?

    In a sense, yes, your ride quality will be affected. When you retain your OEM struts and lower your ride, your car will be more rigid and less smooth, and you’ll sense most bumps. However, the tradeoff is a more aggressive stance and a better grip.
