Need New Front Springs

So since my swap and new tubular K-member from PA performance I need some new springs. My Car was riding nice on steeda springs with the 3.8L platform, but now with this set up and a 00' 4.6L residining in it. I just need the front springs. car rose up about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in the front because of the angle of the k-member, so I'm thinking about sportline springs from eibach or another, but what else could I do to regain the dropped look? Not sure if I want to cut the coil. any help appreciated.

Sportlines and cut them to where you want them or throw some steeda balljoints in and drop 1/2 inch as well. We talked before on this subject and im running same k member but stock a arms. I cut my eibachs a half coil, removed the isos and am using steeda ball joints and i have a fingers gap between tire and fender

Yea I know man was just wondering if anyone else had our issue and has done something like this. Do you know what the spring rate is on the sport line springs? I'm hoping it's a progressive rate too? My steedas are 600-700 lbs so I don't want to go with sport lines or another unless I know they are less. Thanks again man.

Not sure what rate they are but they are not progressive. You could always cut the steedas too just not too much an make sure not to heat them up. People tell you not to cut progressive rate springs but from what i have read they have some extra coil built in that wont affect the rate. I run mine that way with no bad effects and actually several friends of mine have been running that way for years and their cars handle and ride amazing. There are a lot of options though

Re: Need New Front Springs

What did you cut them with? You said don't heat them so did you use a saw of some sort/dremel.

Cut off wheel. Just make sure to let the spring keep its cool and not get it too hot. By not eating it up i mostly mean dont use a cutting torch like people used to do
