Ford racing B lowering springs

I wanted to know if these springs really do only lower your car about an inch. I scrape my slp catted x pipe every once in a while so can't go to low at all

Honestly, if you're scraping anything with stock ride height, you've installed something wrong or the part is garbage. B springs are about half an inch to 3/4 inch in my experience.

I've taken it to 3 different shops and they said that's all the higher it can go and I still have stock springs

Wow are your shocks and struts blown out and bottoming out? A lot of movement?

My exhaust would scrape on taller speed bumps when I was at stock height. It would scrape where the midpipe and cat back would connect to each other. I think it's the brand of off road H pipe that I have. It just comes down a little lower than others. This could be what's going on in your case too.

On Mach 1's, it's about 3/4" to 1" drop and the 01 Bullitt, it's about 1/2" to 3/4" drop. The Mach's are 1/2" lower than the GT's and the Bullitt's are 3/4" lower than the GT's. If you have a GT, it should be right around a 1" drop with the stock ISO's. If you use aftermarket ISO's, beware that it could mean the drop won't be as low. I've heard that by many.

An alternative could be that you take it to an exhaust shop and let them cut the exhaust in certain places and re-adjust where it sets. Then, they would weld it at those cuts and not alter you bolt-up connections. I'm going to be looking into this when the weather gets nicer.

That's a good idea I might see if they can cut it a little shorter where the headers and x pipe conect it's the cats that scrape
