Who has cut their coil springs to lower their mustang?? If so, how much did you cut off? How much lower did it sit after they were cut??

Ive cut about 7 99-04 model stangs. Both v6 and v8...i do 1.25 coils off the front and 1 coil off the back. Gives the drop almost a 1.5" drop and the rear close to 1.25" in drop. Leaves the car with a nice stance. Best tip i can give u is cut less to begin with since i dont know what kinda stang u have. Maybe just a single coil on all four corners for starters. You can always take away more if desired

Also cut with something like an angle grinder with a bi-metal or metal cutting wheel. Use lube to keep the spring from getting to hot. Never use a torch because remember too much heat can ruin a springs temper and spring rate. Pm me if you have questions.

I've got a 95 gt vert.....
i'd start with 1 coil all the way around...vert springs have a higher rate due to added weight so it'll be good to see how it settles with that before you go another 1/4 coil. you can always pull the ISOs out for another 1/4" drop in most cases.
