Front Lowering Springs Only

Hey Guys, Does anyone know if it possible to purchase front lowering springs only, with a 1 "drop that fits a 2012 V6. I'm a second owner, and the previous owner went extreme with lowering the front. It look like a 1.75" drop. This is my daily driver. Thanks

I would post in the classified "Looking for Front only" or contact American Muscle. the answer to your question is maybe you can but if so there will not be much of a savings as I only remember seeing them sold as sets.

Sure, just go to Jegs or Summit racing, find the height / diameter / spring rate you want and order 2. They're usually about $50 a pop.

I would buy a complete set and replace them all. Replacing the rears is pretty easy and it probably won't cost you much more that buying just the fronts. At least then you will have a set with matching spring rates.

Call me crazy, but I have only ever seen single diameter springs (like that you would have on an adjustable perch coilover) for sale in this manner.

Another person to talk to is Strano, he is usually significantly cheaper than AM, and has a much better understanding of how suspension systems actually operate.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

You may not be, i've never actually browsed their selection, i just know they have them.

Also, +1 on Sam Strano.

If you can get a clear view, iso's may be missing & installing new ones may get you up 1/2' to 3/4". I would use OEM style rubber and not poly because rubber is not as stiff. Probably wont satisfy your wants, but throwing that out there.
I would not be surprised if AM can get you 2 front springs. They used to sell their returned items on e-bay. Those were great days!!
