I think you cut a " in the front and 1 1/2" in the back. Use a reciprocating saw. Something that does not heat up the coils to much.

Yea, he was on 2 weeks ago and did 2 post. Other than that it has been a long time. I noticed he is not a moderator any more.

Your car has a linear rate spring in it. All springs for these cars have a pig tail on them, they're the part that goes into the spring perch. When you remove the springs look for the part that curls inwards, that's the pig tail, once you figure that out then cut off the other side of it. I'm running cut springs on my car with no issues at all, just know that if you cut off a lot then you're gonna need to get new shocks at least.

I think you're thinking of someone else. If you look at 1slo's profile he hasn't been on since last year.

I only wanna do maybe 1 coil my rear end is a whole inch lower than the front I want it sit almost even if not a lil lower than the back. So just cut the other end thats not the pig tail? I just wanna double check also do you think and alignment would be necessary if im only dropping inch or sooo? Your mustang is sick I love the no spoiler look soooo clean

Someone probably bumped a old post and that confused me.

I think someone has a similar name to him

Edit: how the hell did I manage to quote Brent? He isn't even on this site any more!

Yea, there is someone with a name similar to him. I forget the name. But the post I saw was him. It's on page 5 in the v-8 section. 3.8 to 4.6 Which is not that old for their section. Someone bought the post back from the dead.
