    R springs, R rear sway bars and 2019 Adjustable camber plates installed

    I just installed R springs and rear sway bars and now the car seemed to sit not much any lower maybe about 1/2 inch?
    I also installed the 2019 adjustable camber plates wanted to keep as much Ford parts as possible. They are not cheap and does not give you any caster adjustments. I could not get the front aligned back to -1 in the front so now it is -1.3 and without the rear camber parts to do the rear yet, it’s left at -.6 and 1.1 right.

    The car now search out any imperfections on the road and pull the car.
    We have terrible streets and fwys in SoCal and I drive this car mostly on the road and some canyon runs. I will try this for a bit and see if I want this or go back to stock.

    I have minor mods on the car, only oil catch cans, full Xpel, Ford blue intake filter and some cosmetic stuff. Name:  70074F6B-333E-45C5-96B3-96F81D05AAA7.jpeg

    I was thinking of installing the R springs also. Think the stockers are a little soft compared to the rears. Didnt think they were lower though. In Socal too, already have probs with dips and driveways.

    Hattrick1, Actually the car only dropped 1/2 inch or so plus the springs are stiffer so I didn't noticed any problems. I have Sliplo installed under my splitter and it save many scrapes directly on my splitter.

    BTW, there is the 2019 Front GT350 springs you can try. Its 10% stiffer but the rear is 6% less. That goes with R rear sway bars, plus cup 2 tires and Different Front hood blockers and new rear Spoiler. It was too much to change so I try this first. I may buy the front 2019 springs to try them compared to the R and leave the rears alone.

    question - why did you choose these over Ford Performance? I see lots of R owners swap to FP

    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.

    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.

    I don’t want to drop the ride height too much since the stock height already scraped easily. Also I don’t track the car and do some canyon runs. It’s at neg -1.5 front and -1 in the back camber setting with no toe in.
    Also I don’t want a progressive spring either. I find front R springs a little too stiff and I get more understeer in moderate speed turns and have to add throttle to pivot the car around the turns. I prefer to rounds my turns. Anyways the 2019 GT350 springs on ordered so I’ll give another month or so see how the car feels before I change the springs

    Btw, I measured the R and GT350 spring length in the front and it’s 20mm shorter free standing not mounted in the front strut.
