Steeda spring question

Can some tell me what the difference between the Steeda linear and progressive springs? I know there is a little difference in the drop bit is there anything else? My car is a daily driver anyone recommend one over the other? TJ?

Hello Philly,

In short - Steeda’s progressive lowering springs for the S550 use a dual-rate spring with two linear rates connected by a rate transition range. The springs are more predictable and easier to tune.

Our progressive springs were designed and tuned for a setup consisting of one to two people at 200 lbs each with a full tank of gas in the car. From our experience, a linear spring doesn’t provide as much roll control as a progressive spring. Think of our progressives as a high-tech dual-rate spring.

Spring rates - our progressive springs are 10% stiffer than the PP springs at curb and provide a 40% increase in roll stiffness over the PP springs when you lean into it and the spring compresses.

Let me know if I can help with a set ... you can read our reviews here:

Steeda Progressive Spring review
So Steeda recently installed a set of Progressive springs on my GT PP and I am impressed, the new ride profile is just awesome. The lack of wheel gap makes things look much cleaner and more aggressive. the ride is a huge change and I must say it did take some getting used to. It changes from the bouncy bunny hop to a choppy affect sort of like there are chains holding the car from bouncing too high. The vehicles vertical travel has been reduced by about 40-50% which has made cornering much better. Once I got used to the new ride feel I became more confident in the cars ability to "hug" the road. Over all this was a great add to an already great car. If you are looking for a single upgrade that makes a huge change this is definitely the way to go!
Best Regards,

TJ[COLOR="Silver"]

TJ, is there one of the two you would recommend more for daily driving or does it not matter?

I would recommend the progressive springs for daily driving - ride quality is as comfortable as stock & they provide sharper steering response, improved vehicle handling/stability, and noticeable reduction in nosedive.

I will p.m. you a forum code for your purchase!

Best Regards,

TJ

I was speaking to a rep from Steeda regarding the Progressive Lowering springs affecting rear camber and was told that even though they now sell adjustable camber plates, aside from one instance, all purchasers have been able to get their wheels back into spec with no camber plates needed. That being said, since I will not be bringing my car to a track to necessitate any adjustments, I just want to avoid having to put them on after the fact due to problems with alignment. Anyone experience any problems with camber or does the car seem to fall back into spec with an allignment from a good shop? Thanks!

Springs with no camber plates? I am kind of new with mustangs but I have always been told that it you lower a car with springs the camber would always be out. Is this not true? I have been putting off buying springs because I thought I would have to buy camber plates to and I wanted to do other things with the money. Maybe TJ can weigh in and confirm this?

With the new S550 chassis Ford has given the Mustang 7 degrees of camber straight from the factory!

Any more caster added to this system will actually pull the front suspension out of its ideal camber gain range and cause us to begin losing grip in the front end.

TJ

Ok so if I get this straight, I can get Steeda progressive springs and an alignment and I would be just fine with camber and caster? I know what camber and caster are but when you guys start talking about how many degrees I am not that smart on that. Thanks for the help guys.

You'll be fine. Just rub some dirt on it and get back out there!

Yes, 7 degrees of caster ... thank you for the catch.

Also, regarding the alignment - If you are just looking to get your car back into factory alignment specifications, then yes, this is totally do-able with factory hardware.

Happy to help place an order for our springs ... you can email me directly at tim@steeda.com.

Best Regards,

TJ
