15 SE Lowering Springs

I'm on the hunt for some lowering springs for my 15 SE sedan. I really want to get rid of some wheel gap. Does anyone know of where I could find a set of springs for the 15? Everything I find only goes up to the 13 SE or for the ST, which I was told does not fit.

Thanks in advance

IMO I wouldn't go with the lowering spring route because you shocks are designed for the stock height of the spring and by having a shorter spring could result in premature wear and tear. BUT! You could go the coil over route for a grand more or less and not really have to worry about that and have adjustable ride height. And fine tune it :)

I want to do coilovers, but I currently don't want to spend $1200. I was also going to replace the struts after awhile

I was able to find these for you. Idk how much you wanted to drop? I have a 2015 hatch SE sport package so I'm right there with you trying to lower this thing. Haha

For inexpensive (relatively) just pick a set of springs you like for the early cars and get some matching early model year Ford handling pack struts from Rock Auto or the Ford dealer that has the cheapo prices (about $50ea...).

Supposedly the Eibach Sportlines will live with stock struts (though some say bouncy).

The Vogtland springs I have on mine (not bouncy at all - not quite as low as Sportlines though) lived with the OE SE struts for 40K+ miles before I hit about four pot holes in a row (can we say Tucson roads bite? I knew we could...).

With the handling pack struts on it now, wow handles great.

The Steeda's, Pro-kit's, and Ford racing ones don't go low enough, IMO.

A bit off topic but in case you didn't know you are also able to get extremely discounted pricing through Village Ford in Dearborn, Michican. PM the rep here with your email address and tell them you are seeking the discount.

The FF account is currently managed by Randy Moore instead of Andy Kochan in case replies are signed "Randy"

Some parts are actually higher than their normal prices (complete transmissions, engines, etc) for some reason but most small parts are discounted almost 30% off MSRP and 10-15% off their normal pricing.
