im not questioning you, because i know u know much more about this that i do but, i alwasys heard that utting your springs changed the spring rate. what does it actually do if not?Ponycarman said:Springs are not made to be cut my dyin @ss.
C springs were never "made" to be cut.
They were made for a different application and Ford says you can cut them to fit a Stang.
Cut your stock springs. 1/2 coil in the front and 3/4 of a coil in hte back will get you about a 1" drop. If you don't like that then you can always p!ss away your money on the "names" mentioned above.
As for the bouncy comment made by some clueless one above, come drive my Stang and tell me if it bounces.
i have the prokit, im not worried. but ponycar man has cut prings lowered like 2 inches, with stock c/c plates and dampenerscjd10 said:it does change the spring rate. the spring can not hold near the weight it used too especially on ruff serfices which will make it BOUNCE unless you bought a heavy duty shock which would be as much as springs and then some.alot of people have problems with a popping noise too when they cut there springs from it never setting right. you can pick some used springs for a little over a bill if you look around. i got my pro kit for 110.
