Re: Lowering Springs

i havent heard from him on those, i could use the spare cash to fix the obvious,

btw its fine to run stock struts/shocks on lowering springs, mine was dropped 2/2.5 and was fine, later i put 86 fox struts on it because they are 1" shorter, use fox struts if you are worried and want to save money, the rear shocks have plenty of room for lowering springs.

men on diets are just trying to make thier boyfriends happy, give him a break...

Re: Lowering Springs

Re: Lowering Springs

ok how about this... i got springs that were 150... ford racing... so for that price (i put them in) i didnt see the point to cut up my stock springs... (and in addition if i move closer to "home" i bottomed out 5 times this weekend so i wanted to keep the stock ones)

Re: Lowering Springs

im selling my eibachs for $100 and people sell them for that all the time, so its worth running lowering springs if they are that cheap, cobra springs are more expensive tho.

Re: Lowering Springs

Yeh...start looking for springs for IRS cars. I paid just under 200 for my set if I recall correctly.

And there is nothing wrong with cutting a spring that is designed for it. I ran cut C springs on my white car for nearly 60k before selling it with no problems. No noise, no extra bounce, nothing. Haven't heard a word from the new owner about having to change them for this reason either and they have upwards of 80k on them now.

And that was the used price for those right?

No, the used springs got stolen off my front porch. Ended up buying new springs from the vendor here on the site. I might be wrong on the price, but it wasn't bad.

Solid rear is for people who can't drive. If I wanted a solid rear, I would have bought a GT.
