H&R part # 28633-2 FWD Escape 2" drop in the front 4 in the rear. No problems yet. If you want, you can get a Escape insulator for the Passenger side rear. I just used my original. The spring smashed It in place

hey luke, thanks for the tip on the H&R springs.
i was waiting on eibach's....
i know the maverick is unique as it has a "left" & "right" wind direction on the rear springs.
would it be wise to just buy the upper and lower escape insulators before installing springs?
how does the spring rate feel?
thanks again, haas

How much does these lowering springs change the ride? They look great but need to know the look is worth the ride change.

It's a little stiffer ride, but not much. The ride was a little choppy stock. Yes, The escape insulators would be better. Just the lower insulator on one side. I used the stock one.

It steers fine and the wheel is straight. I haven't brought It to my alignment guy yet.
