Frequently Asked Questions


How Do I Lower My New Edge Mustang?

The amount of time and difficulty to lower your New Edge Mustang is not as bad as it may seem. However, when you do begin the installation, keep in mind some of these critical components when lowering your build:

  • Do the job right the first time
  • Pick the appropriate springs
  • Make sure your front and rear suspensions are square

    To learn more and follow the step-by-step guide to lowering your Mustang, check out our New Edge lowering spring install video.


    Are Lowering Springs Worth It On An New Edge Ford Mustang?

    There are a dozen of benefits to lowering your Mustang. The five most significant pros include:

  • Better stance
  • Enhanced traction
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Superior handling
  • Lower center of gravity

  • Will Lowering Springs Affect Ride Quality?

    Upgrading your suspension - which, in this case, is firmer suspension, will affect your ride quality. Your Mustang will become more rigid, and you will sense most bumps. While the ride quality may not be that of the factory springs, you will notice better responses in steering and handling. This tradeoff will benefit you when you begin altering your suspension geometry and increasing the performance on your New Edge Mustang. You’ll notice, that cornering with your new suspension will allow you to handle higher speeds and keep your vehicle planted to the pavement.


    If you want to achieve better traction for your New Edge, we highly recommend taking a step further to upgrade your caster camber plates, control arms, bushings, struts, and spring isolators.


    These Mustang lowering springs fit Ford Mustang GT, Mach 1, SVT Mustang Cobra, Bullitt, Saleen, Roush, etc.
