I installed the factory shocks and springs for now although coil overs will replace them soon enough.

Are you sure you are going to need coil overs? Maybe those stock springs aren't the correct rate? Anyway, the truck looks great!

Bleu, are you sure you needed a coyote in your truck?
Im pretty sure our forum isnít about what we need.
I want to lower my truck and I want it to handle as good as possible so coil overs are the best option for that. The manufacturer I chose makes them for the mustang as well as the CV IFS and I want them to match. They also offer three different spring rates to choose from. I donít plan on using the stock mustang springs so Iím not concerned about that spring rate. Lastly the beauty about using the coil overs is that they use the factory mustang shock locations so I can use air bags in the spring locations for when I want to tow or haul anything.

Thanks bleu! I canít wait until Iím as close as you are right now.

Corner weighed my truck and the rear is roughly 100 lbs. lighter per side although I donít have a gas tank in and the mustang had a full tank so the mustang spring rate is good.
