H&r came in

So like the title says my springs came in and I think I'm going to go with the spring isolators out and use a bike inner tube to replace the isolators. Also the camber bolts came to. So hopefully I will get them in this weekend I just have never installed springs before so hopefully it only takes a day. I printed the instructions on American muscle hopefully those are good enough. Also when I install the springs should I have the people install the camber bolt when I get it aligned or do I put them in then take it to get it aligned?

RUNNWLD,

Great choice! The H&R springs are awesome, they ride nice and have a sick stance. You'll be really happy with this set up, as far as your camber bolts go. I would throw them in when you install the springs, then take it over to get aligned. That will safe you some time and money at the shop!

Let me know if you have any questions. If you run into any issues feel free to give my CS team a call! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

Re: H&r came in
