    FRPP is coming out with a set but I dont think they are available.

    I would love to put a set on ... I love lowering springs but I'm afraid it make the car to low and cause damage to the splitter since I drive my car as a daily driver

    Originally it is too high, if you view the car from the side.

    So would be perfect for me

    Hello all, I have been on the track a few times now and am also wondering if the lowering springs will have some handling gains as stated on the Ford Performance website. If anyone has track experience before/after with these springs please share. I contacted Ford Performance recently and inquired about spring ratings etc but they would not share a single piece of information beyond what is stated on the website, so much for promoting sales. The only thing they would say was "That information is proprietary." Thanks for the lack of help poor salesman!

    Hello all, I made the purchase and will receive the springs next week Sept. 10 2019. I will have these installed prior to my next track event with Audi club at VIR Nov. 9-10th. I'' be sure to put in my two cents and evaluation after then. Might even make a youtube review as there really is nothing out there about before/after critique.

    Ford Performance Lowering Springs are incredible - my Blown 2018 machine splitter sits just 2.8 inches off the pavement in the garage - Fender clearance is .5 inch clearance on the front with 315 Michelin and .75 rear with 325 MichelinName:  low1.jpg

    The R and Base springs are the same height.

    An R is about 1/4 inch shorter because it has 30 aspect ratio tires, which are 1/2 smaller diameter than the base 35 aspect ratio tires. The width of the tire (305 vs 325) has no bearing on height.

    If you want to lower the car, use the FP lowering springs. They lower the car 8/10th an inch and provide better track performance. That’s why they are used on the FP350S.

    I put them in my base a year ago and love them for both daily and track.

    They provide a very similar feel for normal daily road conditions but they have a variable rate and stiffen quickly in turns, in addition to lowering the car 8/10ths, which is why they perform better than the base/R springs on track.
