Re: Putting on lowering springs help

You'll need 2 jack stands and a floor jack. The floor jack so you can slowly lower the lower A arms (front) and lower control arm (back) to get the springs out safely.

I found this website linked in one of Mustang Evolutions threads from years ago. Looks like a pretty good hot-to...

Installation of FMS "C" springs on a 2000 Mustang V6 convertible

Hope that helps!

Re: Putting on lowering springs help

Just go in guns a-blazin' and balls to the wall! Flip the car over and make it work! Rip everything out and put it back in!


Idk... I'm just sayin' stuff because I was gonna write a little how-to for you but people posted links. D: Whatever.
