GT suspension reco? Timing belt fitted

Howdy guys,

Anyone recommend a good suspension upgrade for the GT??

Im putting in a lot of long distance miles these days and the stock set up is starting to feel pretty 'sore back syndrome'

Been looking at Eibach springs for around £200. Can fit myself.
Reckon its worth doing the full thing rather than just the springs on their own??

Just done the timing belt & waterpump btw on saturday morning.
Cracking wee day in the driveway, greggs breakfast roll and talksport on the wireless. Job wasnt half as bad as expected

I run on 16" on my GT, ride is very comfortable. You will avoid a lot suspension problems as well as tyres being a lot cheaper

A decent set of dampers will probalby help things more than a springs.

Whatever you do, do not buy KONI shocks, as they will elevate the front of the car, even with Eibach lowering springs. Experienced it myself. This was on a 3.2. Had a GT 2.0 JTS earlier and fitted coilovers from Autodelta. They are adjustable, and worked and looked great!
