Description
Improves Handling. These Ford Racing "C" Springs will lower your Mustang approximately 1" giving it a more aggressive stance and a lower center of gravity greatly improving your pony's handling over the stock factory springs. Aggressive Stance. Adding a set of lowering springs to your Mustang can greatly improve its appearance by getting rid of that "4x4" look that it came with from the factory for a more aggressive stance.

  • The springs will look the same as the ones already on your car. The only difference is that the lowered versions will be shorter and thicker than your stock springs. (The mounting ends will look the same as the stock ones,) Rule-of-thumb, the rears will have one end that is narrower.

Are spring isolators needed? Do you have to use spring isolators when installing new springs or can they be left out.

  • When you change out your springs, we highly recommend you swap out your old, worn out isolators. The new polyurethane isolators will last much longer than the factory set and will prevent any unwanted metal on metal noises that can result from installing springs without a new set. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!

RECOMENDED OTHER PARTS? SHOULD ANY OTHER PRODUCTS BE PURCHASED WITH THESE SPINGS, SINCE THE FRONT END IS BEING LOWERED WOULD CASTER CAMBER PLATES BE NECESSARY, OR RECOMENDED?

  • I'd recommend replacing your factory, worn down/possibly dry rotted isolators with new front and rear polyurethane springs isolators. They are more durable than the stock counterparts, will last longer and will prevent any metal on metal noises. With this spring kit, you most likely won't need CC plates to obtain proper alignment. The general rule of thumb is any drop over 1" should also install CC Plates. To my knowledge, most customers installing this kit have not needed them. You can always install them later if you find there isn't enough adjustment stock. Hope this helps!

    Very Nice

    October 11, 2010

    I had these installed on my 04 GT when I bought the car a year and a half ago. Popped the trunk on the dealer lot and boom they were sitting there along side some Tokico Shocks and Struts. You can tell a big difference between these and the stock ones. Sitting next to a stock 99-04 Mustang and even an 05-09 Mustang you tell can you sit lower. If you're looking for a lower stance the Eibachs are better. I've sat next to a guy with Eibachs on his Mustang and sits lower than mine These combined with the Tokico S&S makes for a real nice handling Mustang.

    Offers a Much Better Stance!

    September 29, 2011

    These springs are great. They get rid of the 4x4 look and give my Mustang a better better stance. Seemed to help the handling as well. Great look and ride for those not looking to slam their pony with aggressive lowering springs, these are just right. Allows me to easily fit the larger wheels on the back too.

    June 12, 2010

    I should have installed these on my 5.0 years ago. It really gave my car an aggressive stance. It dropped the front approximately 1.25" and the rear 1". This is an awesome look for all foxbody stangs without sacrificing the ride quality. American muscle is a true must save bookmark for all of your performance needs!

    Great product

    June 09, 2008

    I have a red 96 GT, which should be in the customer pics for this product. I have 18x9s in front and 18x10s in the rear. It lowered the car quite well and the ride is also great. A highly recommended product.

    2003 Mustang V6

    September 19, 2008

    I installed the Ford C-Springs on my 2003 Mustang V6 convertible. It dropped the front by 1 inch and rear by .5 inches. The manufacturer indicates that these springs are designed for GT models & have not been tested on V6. It worked on my V6 very nicely, except it was .25 inches higher than the estimated drop. It made my Mustang look more beautiful and did not effect the ride quality at all!!!

    Lowering C springs

    March 04, 2012

    These springs worked perfectly, I installed them yesterday on my 2003 Mach 1, they lowered it to exactly where i wanted ( The rear still needs to settle in to get a little lower though ). Dropped about an inch and a quarter on the front and about an inch in the rear ( So far ). Another great product from American Muscle!!

    They made a huge differance. handles better, luanches better and most of all that annoying squating that it would do at luanch is gone. it just snaps and goes. i would recommend motor and trans mounts also being that now it can luanch so hard the mounts cant handle it.
