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.

Clears Stock and Aftermarket Wheels & Tires. These lowering springs were engineered to be compatible with your stock factory size wheels and tires, as well as AmericanMuscle’s pre-configured wheel and tire combo kits (specific to your generation), to assure proper clearance with no rubbing issues.

Application. The Ford Racing C Springs fit all Mustangs from 1979 to 2004, except 1999-2004 Cobra's with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS). Lowers 1979-1993 Mustangs approximately 7/8" front; 1/2" rear. Lowers 1994-2004 Mustangs approximately 1-1/8" front; 3/4" rear.

Technical Note. These springs will not fit 1999 to 2004 SVT Cobra's with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) or GT Mustangs converted to IRS.

What is difference between C and B springs from ford racing?

cruizer Year: 2003 Model: GT

  • While C-Springs and B-Springs have the same drop, the difference between the two are their spring rates. C-Springs are Standard Rate Springs, which means they are at a constant rate and won't vary while driving. These are better suited for those looking strictly for the performance gains and don't mind a stiffer ride. B-Springs are Progressive Rate Springs, which means the spring gets firmer as it gets compressed. These springs are great for daily street driving, keeping a more comfortable ride.

Which of the ford c-springs are the front and the rear? Mine are not marked

qazwsx Year: 2004 Model: Mach 1

  • 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.

Question Resolved

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

stangcrim Year: 1996 Model: GT

  • 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!

    Very Nice

    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!

    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.

    Ford Racing Springa

    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

    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

    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

    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!!

    Simply Awesome

    Just installed these lowering springs. Made the car look freaking awesome. Just the right look. Not too low, but just plain nasty. However, I tried following instructions provided by American Muscle website. The only thing I would change is, don't use a big hammer to break free the lower ball joints. My stang only has 50k miles. Completely rust free and always garaged. Those suckers wouldn't budge. I was using a 20lb sledge and still nothing. Except running the risk of smacking my baby. So I used my torch to heat the spindle. Bad idea again. It loosened one side, but ruined the ball joint. Off to NAPA and bought two new ball joints. Figured I would use torch on the other side and just replace them both. When doing the other side, even the torch wouldn't help. Went to AutoZone and rented a ball joint separator. Two whacks and boom. Off she came. They also rented me a press tool for replacing the ones I burnt up trying to get free. Goes to show, there is a right tool for every job. And a big hammer has no business beating on any stang. Back to these springs, they are worth every penny. Will give you the same look and feel as the more expensive one. Corners like a dream. Very pleased. A+
