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
I'm pretty certain this is the best shopping experience I've ever had. I found what I wanted on AmericanMuscle.com, then did some price shopping and ended up coming back and order from them because they had the lowest price AND free shipping too. I honestly look forward to spending more money with American Muscle. They have customer submitted photos in addition to their great product photography as well as installation guides from users and manufacturers. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them.
