Alignment after install? I just installed these springs and was wondering if I need an alignment now. There seems to be more negative camber than before which is what I expected. What do you think?

SiskMan

  • You will need an alignment after installed. I say get some caster camber plates (the 4 bolt), these will help keep everything straight and make it cost alot less when you need alignments.

So I'm trying to lower my 1985 v6 convertible as little as possible. would this be a good choice?

nanothestrange

  • The Ford Performance Lowering B-Springs offers one of the smallest change in ride height, however, the Ford Performance Lowering C-Springs offer the same drop in height. The B-springs have a progressive spring rate, where the C-Springs use a linear rate. If you were perhaps interested in a coil-over kit, you can adjust the ride height to the factory settings on most units.

BISCUITHEAD

  • Yes, the bigger tire combination should not present a problem on your model car. The B springs are not as radical as the Eibach or H&R type springs, so you should get a very nice look out of the setup you are wanting. I think you will like the FRPP B springs better also, for ride and handling. Be sure to submit photos after you make the changes.

Do I need to/should I buy the Isolators with it? I'm new to lowering springs, do I need to buy the Isolators or what?

Robert94

  • The stock spring isolators will prove to be worn down and could even possibly be cracked due to the rubber that was used. New polyurethane spring isolators will last much longer than their stock counterparts, while offering improved handling, steering response and a quieter ride. Hope this helps!

The drop could be lower, but I also install ISOs. I seriously recommend these to anyone wanting to strictly improve handling and ride quality.

    Nice springs

    Ride is much better. It is firmer, but not punishing at all (important on a convertible). Handling on curvy roads is now a blast. Springs have only been on a week. Car dropped about 1/2 an inch so far, but I'm sure some settling has yet to happen. Looking forward to more twisty driving. Haven't taken it on nasty city streets yet.

    Awesome Springs

    I put these in as a replacement for my cut stock springs and the ride is so much better. They could lower it more, but i left my isolators in and hopefully they will settle more. Anyways install was a breeze...rear end took 15 minutes and the front two took an hour and fifteen minutes. Great springs...looks lowered and wont scrape!!!

    From C to B

    I originally went from the stock spring to the C spring. These were way to stiff. After a little research I determined B was the way to go. These are a lot more road friendly. They greatly improved the ride quality over the C's. I do recommend these springs for a street driven mustang.

    Springs that work!

    When I purchased my 92 SSP foxbody about 2 months ago, it had Eibach lowering springs installed. Whoever installed those must have been going for the ultimate lowering as this was really too low! They were installed without the insulators as well, so metal to metal noises were heard. I was bumping things that shouldn't be bumping, so I called AM for advice about the setup. I'm sorry I don't remember with whom I spoke with, but his advice was spot on! My compliments AM for having such knowledgeable & helpful sales agents! He recommended the "B" springs for my ride, which confirmed my thoughts about replacements as well. Ford made the cars, so it seems their replacement parts are the most likely to work the best. I was not disappointed. The rear took me, by myself, about 2 hours to replace, but the front took me & 2 other helpers about all day to do! Those are not the easiest things to get in, but not because of the brand, it's just there are tricks to installing front springs, so you don't kill someone when they fly out unexpectedly! That didn't happen, but one must be careful. We ended up compressing the new springs with an internal compressor then chaining the springs to keep them in that state, making them easier to install. The first side took us 5-6 hours, while the second only about 40 minutes. The springs are worth the trouble though, as ride & handling are superior with these springs. My ride height was restored to an acceptable height, and now things don't bump. I was able to give them a good workout this past weekend while attending one of our club's cruises. The car is low enough now to give it a more aggressive look without the problems experienced with the Eibachs. Any springs purchased, but I recommend these, should be installed with the poly insulators! Thanks AM for such great sales help & delivery.

    Ford Racing B Springs

    I decided to go with these springs to replace the stock that were cut. Althought the drop isn't dramatic, I can't complain on the improvement for handling. I have these springs in conjunction with the KYB GR-2 struts/shocks, the ride is pretty firm. Over all I'm satisfied with this set up and recommened to those wanting a step up in handling if on a budget.

    Just right

    I thought about canceling my order after looking at the other 1.5 inch springs. I'm glad I went with these. With my 17 inch cobra wheels its a perfect stance. Doesn't look like a truck anymore, but doesn't scrape or look riced out. It looks awesome with the Mach 1 Chin spoiler too that I got on the same order. Highly recommend. It's pretty amazing what around 1 inch of drop will do.

    No fitment issues with Ford springs on a Mustang

    Nice drop on my GT. No rubbing or bottoming out. I have a convertible that has to be female rider friendly, so these offered a nice drop with the stock spring rates. I have MAC LT headers and subframe connectors and again no issue with bottoming out. If you haven't looked at them lately, consider either replacing your lower control arms (like I did) or at least replace the lower ball joint and bushings while you have the car apart.

    Gave my 13 yr old vert the handling and stance it needed

    So I grabbed this used 2000 GT Convetrible three weeks ago and gave it a major overhaul. Paint, interior etc etc. The last item on the list suspension. Grabbed this springs from AM in person. Installed and it made my 4x4 looking 2000 GT like the mean machine it should be. Improved handling, stance and overall appearance. Plus it is FRPP so it is warrantied by Ford Thankfully i replaced when I did as my stock original springs were actually broken at the isolator rings in the front suspension. Fair Price, picked up in person and typical AM quality service Why go with anything but FRPP parts for your stang?

    oh yeah

    This coupled with the kyb shocks/struts makes the mustang ride so much different. The shocks are soft for daily driving except when the road gets out of hand, or you wanna open her up a lil. Best spring to get for city driving because it gives slight lee-way until the road requires more stiffness.

    Great springs, perfect ride

    If you have a stock Mustang GT and when you go around a turn a little too fast, the whole car feels unstable, these springs will really help. Since they're progressive spring rates, they didn't make the ride any harder over small bumps, but when you go around a sharp corner, you immediately feel them stiffen up. The car feels much more planted and controllable, and it's a lot less scary to drive a little faster than I should. But if you can't go fast, why have a V8 Mustang. These took a long time for me to install because the factory springs were rusted into place, so I had to spend several hours with an air hammer, trying to get them out. They should only take about two hours, but give yourself all day just incase.

    Ford B springs

    Had the springs installed by a shop, on a 95 GT convertible 5.0. They replaced the original springs with 75,000 miles on them. Car lowered 1.5 in the front and 1.0 in the rear, which turned out to be just right. Anymore and I would be scraping the frame or damaging the front air dam more frequently than normal........... I was surprised by the ride, it was still good for the street. I also replaced the shocks with a slight upgrade. The handling improvement is very apparent, particularly in faster corners, but also noticeable in slow hard turns. The car would squat under hard acceleration with the original set up, it now stays flat and much more predictable with the change. Very satisfied with the modification.

    B Springs

    After a great deal of research I decided on these springs. I had intentions of keeping the stock shocks / struts but since they were in need of replacing, I changed those out too. The car feels much more solid now. It definitely handles better and the ride quality is only slightly harsher. The drop is as advertised just about 1-1/8 in front and 3/4 in the rear. This was the perfect real world drop in my opinion. It closes the wheel gap on my 04 to where it should have been in the first place.

    FRPP B springs

    Installed these on my aunt's 03 GT along with KYB shocks and struts all around. She bought the car with H&R race springs and the factory shocks had blown over 60,000 miles, making the ride very bouncy and uncomfortable. These spring really softened up the ride and still have a sporty feel in the corners since they are a progressive rate spring. These springs are a great upgrade for the enthusiest looking to lower the car a little and make it an outstanding cruiser. As always thanks AM.

    Very good ride and handling

    I had my shop install these Ford "B" Lower Springs as well as Tokico shocks and struts on all four corners of my '03 'Vert GT. This setup needs a Caster/Camber plate installed for getting a correct alignment. The shop charged me $100 per corner for all of it, including installing the caster/camber plate, new spring Isolators, urethane sway bar bolts and the alignment. The car rides very good, no bottoming out, better control and handling and no wheel rub with 17"x 9" Cobra 5-spoke wheels w/ 245's all around. The initial drop in front was 1", I think it will settle a bit more, the rear was 3/4". Looks great too, it was the right choice for me.

    I had bought the car it was lowered way to far, so i put stock cobra springs in it. but those springs where to strong and raised it up more then wanted. these new springs lowered it to the perfect stance and it handles a lot better and rides so much smoother.
