M-5300-8 FRONT/REAR SPORTS HANDLING SPRING KIT

1979-90 MUSTANG / CA PRI

BEFORE ATTEMPTING INSTALLATION OF THIS KIT, THOROUGHLY READ SECTION 14 OF FORD CAR SHOP MANUAL OR AN EQUIVALENT AFTERMARKET MANUAL AND FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES FOR SPRING REPLACEMENT. COMPRESSED SPRINGS STORE A GREAT DEAL OF ENERGY WHICH CAN BE V IOLENTLY RELEASED IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL.

THIS KIT IS DESIGNED TO LOWER YOUR V8 MUSTANG/CAPRI-APPROXIMATELY 3/4" (NOTE: 6 CYLINDER AND 4 CYLINDER MODELS SLIGHTLY LESS). THIS MAY NOT BE READILY APPARENT IMMEDIATELY AFTER INSTALLATION SINCE SPRINGS OFTEN REQUIRE SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES OF DRIVING TO 'TAKE A SET'.

ALWAYS TORQUE CONTROL ARMS TO SPEC WITH THE SUSPENSION AT THE NORMAL RIDE HEIGHT AnITUDE, OTHERWISE YOU PRE-LOAD THE BUSHINGS AND BUILD IN AN ARTIFICIAL INCREASE IN SPRING RATE.

FUNCTIONAL REPLACEMENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING KIT PARTS CAN BE OBTAINED FROM YOUR FORD/LINCOLN/MERCURY DEALER:

FRONT SPRING - E5SZ-5310-K

REAR SPRING - E5SZ -5560-A
