Re: Mustang lowering

you will probably have to cut your springs to get it any lower than 2 or 2.5 inches. Are you trying to level it out or what?

IF your springs are linear springs (coils dont get closer together at one end of the spring) cutting with a cut off wheel would be ok to do~ but its a risk no matter what .. as well as how much to cut... might have to cut a little and test etc etc

Re: Mustang lowering

well lowering springs are coil springs, thats just what a spring is so thats what I meant by using the word coil.

It may increase the spring rate which would make it ride stiffer if you cut to much off... its a risk you may have to take to find out. If you still have your factory springs you can try just cutting those slowly to get the drop you want and see how the ride is.

You can only cut ONE end of the rear springs so be SURE you do not cut the pig tail end (the end that sits on the bottom). Use a cut off wheel to cut them dont use a torch.
