i've only seen one fox look good slammed....it takes a lot to pull off that look. i prefer a nice stanced setup.

like i said i've only seen one and this is it...it does have an IRS for those wondering

Okay I saw this photo before and started to save up to buy an 88' fox notch to slam. All because this picture is so attractive. Haha. Stance?! Nope. Did that on my ranger and it wears your tires so much!

the downside to it now though is that you've lost it's functionality...i'd rather have something that i can push hard and have fun then be only for show

Agreed! My Ranger is low, but since I didn't do a kit or cut coils, my shocks are totally useless because its slammed so hard! So I'll buy aftermarket shocks to make it functional. Which I have no problem with.

No way. I love Foxes more than any other stangs on the road. No doubt. Gt-500, 427R, GTs, and SVTs are all cool, but foxes are the best.

Not going to ever do that. I'm afraid I won't like it or eventually want to go back to stock. So yeah. If anything I'll junkyard some springs then cut the spares. But yeah. Doesn't it ride bouncy if you do that?

nope...the ride stays pretty close to what it is now. i've cut a lot of mustang springs lol and at first i was worried too, but now it's just another day at the office. fox springs are nice because they transfer weight well...make great drag springs (4 cyl ones are the best)

So if I find like 2.3l springs would that do me any good?

Youll need to cut...but youd want to install them first to see by how much..youll have to play it safe and cut 1/4 coil at a time to not go to low

Unless you can ask the fox body guys in there section what the average cut is for 4 cyl springs to stance them.

On a 99-04 itd be 1.25 off the front and 1 off the back for a nice drop

That black fox has gotta be one of the best I've seen.

To answer your previous question you can use an angle grinder to cut the coil with. No blow torches tho..

Agreed! Okay. I am going to buy some 5.0 lowering springs on eBay for 80$ and cut them. See how they work for me.

i would check first and see if the spring rates are the same as your sixxers...usually v8 springs have a higher rate for the weight difference.
