Re: SVE springs?

I just bought the springs for my 11GT. I called and asked them if the SVE springs were any good or if I should just spend the extra $100 and buy the FRPP springs, and the sales guy told me that they have had good reviews and even one of the guys that works there has them on his car. He even proceeded to tell me that the same manufacturer makes the SVE and FRPP springs. I say go for it!

awesome thanks man. i was reading a write up on the website on the springs that one of the workers from latemodel wrote. he installed those springs on his 01 v6 and he said the ride feels good and it dropped his sixxer 1.5 . i wanted a 2" but those are for the gt's since they weigh more.
he posted pics too

do u think its a good drop. or should i go for my other option , the Dropzone springs from ebay for 105 bucks. my brother got em for his gt

I don't have any experience with SVE but I would check the spring rates and decide if they are stiff enough or comfortable for your taste. My H&R race springs are 750-850 lbs in front and 260-280 lbs in the rear. I believe the stock Bullitt rates are 600 f and 240 r.

My pleasure, I just researched that the 99-04 v6 had 400lb front springs and 190lb rears. So you have a reference point to start with.

Re: SVE springs?

If you go to sn95forum you can see plenty of them mounted on Mustangs in the suspension threads. Lots a pics. I posted spring rates for every manufacturer that makes them for our cars on there too.

Re: SVE springs?

1.5" is a decent drop, especially if you daily drive the car.

~2", which is what the Ebay Dropzones claim, might be too much for a daily driven car. Speed bumps, crowned roads and inclines can be a b*tch with a larger drop like that.

I've seen a few people with them on their 99-04 cars, no complaints. A little bit stiffer than stock, but not performance stiff like H&R's.

I'd pick them up for that price.

Re: SVE springs?

Just an inch, noticeable difference though. they ride great too. Not as much bounce as before, but still nothing close to a jaw jarring ride.

I wanted to upload that pic to show that the "SVE" springs ARE FRPP springs

Re: SVE springs?

Thanks for the good info,
I put on Ford Racing springs also. I managed a 2"+ drop when finished. I have survived speed bumps ect. with the new long tube headers just fine so far. I used no iso's, C/C plates, Fox Body springs & shocks/struts, X-2 balljoints, & a bumpsteer kit.
