Features & Details

  • Muscle car stance
  • Tight responsive handling
  • Lowers Center of Gravity
  • Standard Spring Rate
  • Estimated Drop: Front - 1.25", Rear - 1.0”
  • Fits 1979-2004 V8 and V6 Coupes
Responsive Handling. H&R Race Springs offer tight responsive handling and more control than that of the factory springs. These standard rate Race Springs drastically reduce body roll in the turns, squat during acceleration, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking by lowering the vehicles center of gravity. H&R Race springs are perfect for aggressive street driving, but still comfortable enough for daily use.

Muscle Car Stance. The H&R Race Springs not only improve the overall handling of your Mustang, but they also improve the appearance by lowering the ride height to eliminate that nasty 4x4 truck look for a more aggressive muscle car stance.
  • Lowers 1979-1993 V8 Coupes: Front - 1.0", Rear - 0.75"
  • Lowers 1994-2004 V8 and V6 Coupes: Front - 1.25", Rear - 1.0"

Recommended Upgrade. When installing new springs you should also replace your old worn out rubber Spring Isolators with a new set of Polyurethane Spring Isolators, see drop down option above.

Application. This set of four H&R Race Springs are designed for use on the 1979 to 2004 coupes including the 5.0 LX, V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and the 1993 to 1998 SVT Cobra. Does not fit the 1999-2004 IRS equipped SVT Cobra models.

Do i need caster/camber plates? Do i need caster/camber plates to get the alignment right?

  • Yes you do, when ever lowering your stang more than 1.5 you will always need them to get your allignment right. Your changing the entire geometry of the car when lowering. Caster camber plates help you fine tune your allignment so you can get it perfect and will have no issues with premature tire wear due to poor allignment

    Excellent Product!!

    We installed this kit on a 2003 GT. I was very surprised how much this spring kit improved the handling. The car has no body roll now. The car also stays flat during accelleration and braking. The ride is a little stiffer but not that noticible. This kit also lowered the car about 1.5 inches which made a big difference in the look of the car. It aligned up without having to buy a caster camber kit which was a plus. The car should of came from the factory this way. Install time was about 1.5 hours in the back and 3 in the front.

    H&R Springs

    The appearance off the springs were clean, no powdercoating chips. It took about two hours to do all four springs(on a lift), the ride is must better with less roll, and the look is much better--doesn't look like a 4x4 anymore! Highly recommended!

    H & R race springs for 2001 Bullitt Gt

    Easy to install, took me 2.5 hours to complete installation. A little stiffer than stock Bullitt springs, but it feels like the car should have come with these springs. The stock Tokiko shocks seem to be matched up perfectly with the heavier springs. The drop isn't super aggressive, but it is noticeable. The front end is now a half inch lower than the rear(measured at the rocker panel), to give the car a nice stance. I would recommend these to someone who is looking to tighten up the handling of your 99-04 mustang and even autocross every now and then.

    Awesome Springs

    I had Mach 1 springs before with my Koni shocks and struts, and I was bouncing around the cabin like crazy over every bump, so I was hesitant at best when it came to upgrading to these springs. Once I put them on I found that my worries were completely unnecessary. These are soft enough to drive everyday, but when I want to throw the car around, they are extremely supportive, and allow very little body roll even through the hardest of turns. I'd suggest them to anyone who has a good set of dampers. If you're running stock shocks and struts forget about performance springs, but anyone who has Konis like me will be loving the ride.

    Stiff but Sturdy

    I bought my '04 GT with these springs already installed and man are they a stiff ride but it pays off the second you throw the car around a tight corner, they handle great and keep it nice and steady, and they look great too.

    Great Hanling

    At first I was a little worried that the specific rate springs would be too hard for the street. After driving around those worries were GONE! These springs handle great! They don\'t lower as much as the super sports but they handle much better. A friend and I followed the installation instructions on the AM site. Great Product and Fast Shipping!

    For Fox

    If anyone elses foxbody is like mine shes getting old and the suspension lets just say you are feeling the road pretty good. The springs great for me, stiff, hit a bump not bouncing everywhere after wards. But they really only work best when you replace everything i.e shocks, struts, front control arms, rear upper and lower arms, quad shocks, and sway bars. Do everything you will feel a noticeable difference.

    H&R Race Springs

    Installed these H&R Race Springs. Installation took me about a full day. The rears are easy to put in, but the fronts might take you some time. Ride quality is great and I paired these with Bilstein struts and shocks along with new isolators. Great improvement over stock.

    Stiff and Smooth

    These springs feel great on the road and just as good on the twists and turns. My Mach 1 has these, eibach sway bars, and a strut tower brace and has no body roll. These springs were installed before the sway bar and the ride is not bouncy nor did it roll a lot. These work great with the stock shock/struts on Mach 1's. They will lower the car so you can still drive it around and not bottom it out and will look great. The only reason I would go with a different spring is if you want your car lower than these will make it.

    Great springs, understeer almost completely gone, massive improvement

    I know a guy who tunes suspensions and has owned many mustangs. He and I compete in SCCA solo driving and he told me that these springs would help the car keep the wheels down and make the car actually feel fast. He was totally right, after sub frame connectors this has been the biggest improvement in the car I've made.

    Great stance, looks amazing

    I bought these for my 97 Cobra not too long ago, took a couple hours to install but the install wasn't that bad. The springs them selves are in really good quality. The ride quality could be better, it's very bumpy even over the smallest bumps. But I also have adjustable Koni shocks and struts, so that maybe the problem for so many bumps but overall the shocks are top quality.

    H&R Race Springs

    My car is a daily driver so I wanted something that wasn't going to ride terrible, or bottom out. I didn't want to have to plan my trips around speed bump location. . .and these springs are more than I could have ever asked for! They ride amazing! The ride quality is way better than the stock was! The springs handle bumps waaaay better than the stock springs did! I have 0 bottoming out issues, I never scrap, but I got ride of that 4x4 look. The car handles like its on rails going into turns! super awesome ride and drive. This is all I recommend!

    If you are running stock springs, YOU WANT THESE!!!

    Put these on my '98 GT a few weeks ago paired with Koni shocks and struts. Big difference in ride quality and handling. Body roll has been all but eliminated and the car sticks in the turns regardless of how hard I push it. The car is slightly lower to the ground and the ride is a bit stiffer but certainly not unbearable. Ordered them on a Sunday evening and they arrived the following Tuesday afternoon.

    Great for a weekend autocross car/daily driver

    I recently purchased these springs to raise my mustangs ride height back up 1" for added suspension travel and also to double my current spring rates in the front end. I was able to test them today on the autocross course. Huge improvement over my lower springs. The car has a lot less body roll and understeer. I was only able to test these springs in wet conditions. I know these will only be that much better on a dry track surface. These springs are also still comfortable enough to drive on everyday. Great buy! If your debating on these springs or the Eibach pro kit, spend the money once and buy these springs.

    I bought these a little while back and I love them, I am not a fan of my car sitting super low and these were just right. The notice from my 2001 stock springs was immediate. I have ordered 4 upgrades for my GT and so far everyone one of them has been great. Thanks AM!

    H&R race springs drastically improved handling

    the H&R race springs really helped to improve the handling by reducing body roll and lowering the vehicle's center of gravity. The springs lowered my car about 1 1/4 inches in the front and 1 1/2 inches in the back. These springs are a great product and I highly recommend them to anyone who likes to go fast in more than just a straight line.

    H&R Race Springs

    Great set of springs by H&R. I notice a heck of a difference in cornering, handling, and lanching. I highly recommend that you also purchase the Front & Rear Isolators as well. I also recommend that you have a shop install these, as you will need an alignment afterwards.
