Traction control problem

Hi, couple weeks ago I installed bbk lowering springs on my 03 gt automatic now every time I mash the gas my tire spin more then be4. What can I do to decrease that? M getting Nitto NT555 275/40-17 next week hopefully that would help little bit but what else I could do? Thank you

Those nittos should definitely take care of the traction issue. Not really sure why you're not hooking up. After I lowered my car I had much more control

Probably because the OEM springs were allowing the rearend to squat more when you nailed the throttle. That=more weight transfer to the rear=more traction. Stiffer springs, if that is what you got, will not allow that as much. This is why drag spring rates are pretty soft.

But yes the new tires should help out a lot, so will some good LCAs.

Just get the lca's. Aftermarket Uca's aren't really necessary.

Tires should help a lot. I have 275/40/17's on my backs and they get really good traction. I actually get way better traction than I did in my v6 even with 75+ more tq. Although I do have both tires turning now
