SR lowering springs?

Does anyone know if you put SR lowering springs on a 14' v6 if you need the new mounts and dampers like AM says in the instal description? I am sure others I've talked to did not replace those when installing?? I have a 2014 b6 with the track package

Hey,

Glad to see your interested in these springs, I had them on my 06 and was really happy with them.

You will actually need the mounts and dampeners. Reason being, the 05-09 cars had a different front strut assembly from the 10-14 gen. This will actually affect the way the spring sits on the perch. I personally wouldn't recommend trying to go without them for this reason.

Really any spring that also works with the 05-09 cars will require these. If you would rather not go with these items, we do offer several other spring kits that would not require any other modifications to work properly.

I hope this helps, and by all means if you have any other questions feel free to reach out to myself or customer service team listed below my signature.

-Dan

I had them on my 2008 and I got a new set for my 2014 v6. It had the upgraded suspension track package but the garage just put the SR springs on and did not change the mounts. It looks to be fine I was reading other reviews on AM under customer reviews and others said you dosnt need them. What is the danger of leaving them the way they are ? What could get damaged? They feel fine...

Hey,

The biggest concern I would have would be the spring becoming dislodged from its perch. This would essentially cause the car to be unsupported and hit ground. It is very highly unlikely due to all the weight that is resting on the spring, but we like to error on the side of caution. I would not be overly concerned with that happening, but if you ever need to replace the struts, it wouldn't be a bad idea to throw them in there.

I hope this helps, and if you need anything else certainly get back in touch. Good luck!

-Dan

Question, do you do dyno's for customers at AM/Bama? I live close and always pick my parts up at location but would love to have a readout on a dyno.

I think it depends on how much mileage you have on your shocks/struts. If they're low mileage then you can get away with just installing the new springs without changing anything else.

I had them installed on my 14 v6 a couple of months ago and the shop used the existing stuff. No issues so far.

Maybe a little, not really noticeable to me. Here's what mine looks like after the springs have settled.

Mike, which chin spoiler did you add? I like the look of the one in the second photo.

Hey,

I wish we could, because a lot of local guys would love it. Unfortunately, for liability reasons we can only do a couple a year which we reserve for Mustang Mayhem and a couple other contests and events. Keep posted though, there has been talk of offering up that service.
