Re: new mods

well I change my own oil but now and again I just dont want to mess with it lol... but its usually worth it to do it yourself... especially if you normally would go to places like walmart etc.. I dont trust them.

Re: new mods

If you were able to install a jmod, headers, shocks and a tlok, you should have no problems doing springs. Hell, I'd say the springs are easier than the shocks/struts.

Our mustang's suspension is pretty simple and straightforward. Just be careful when decompressing the springs...they can pack quite a punch and you don't want to be in the way if it shoots out.

I'm talking about when you lower the a-arm...sometimes the springs don't release and there is still a good deal of potential energy present...it could pop out...doesn't always happen but it's possible.

Ive never lowered a mustang. I lowered my Nissan 240sx and all I did was put it on jack stands and change out the springs. It was pretty easy.
