H&R Race Springs - Coupe (99-04 Cobra)

Item 47201
AmericanMuscle no longer carries the H&R Race Springs - Coupe (99-04 Cobra). Please check out 1999-2004 Mustang Springs for an updated selection.

Features & Details

  • Muscle car stance
  • Tight responsive handling
  • Lowers Center of Gravity
  • Standard Spring Rate
  • Estimated Drop: Front - 1.6”, Rear - 1.5”
  • Fits 1999-2004 SVT Cobra 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 Cobra Mustang, but they also improve the appearance by lowering the ride height approximately 1.6" in the front and 1.5" in the rear to eliminate that nasty 4x4 truck look for a more aggressive muscle car stance.

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 specifically for use on the 1999 to 2004 SVT Cobra Coupes equipped with independent rear suspension (IRS). Will not fit convertible models.

      4 Top Rated Questions

      Are new shocks and struts needed when installing? Just wondering if new shocks and struts are a must or recommendation when installing lowering springs? My Cobra has 64,000 miles on it. Thanks!

      • I would highly recommend new shocks and struts. Something adjustable to compliment the springs that you can dial in to your liking would be a very good approach. If not you will likely find problems with your current shocks and struts after you install the new springs.

      Are front and rear isolators needed? Why can you only include front spring isolators from the drop down menu? Are rear isolators not needed?

      • The need of new isolators depends on the condition of the old ones. However I have found that I've had to take it all apart and install new isolators on at least one spring when I tried to not replace them and ended up replacing them all. Now I just bite the bullet and get new isolators so I don't have to redo it, to do it right. So the choice is yours, but I highly recommend it. That my experience on new springs in 3 different mustand.

      will these springs fit my 2003 Cobra convertible H&R race springs

      • Unfortunately not. These Race Springs are solely meant to be used on the 99-04 Cobra Coupes. The spring rates are designed with the hardtop body style in mind and should not be installed on a convertible.

          Not much to add to what has already been said. Perfect stance. No body roll, zero. The car only gets upset on the worst roads. Installed an just under 2.5 hours. American Muscle is easily the fastest shipping company I have ever worked with. I couldnt be happier.

          Good choice

          I was worried about these not giving me the amount of drop I wanted, but my car is slammed! They aren't anywhere near as stiff as I was expecting either. There aren't many choices for our irs, but these are a good one!

          Looks great, stopped front end float!

          I live in Europe and track day my 99 Cobra a lot; I used to have really bad front end float over 115mph. These springs in conjunction with everything else you should be putting on your lowered stang made a HUGE difference! I now stay planted on the pavement at 160 and my car looks like it should have from factory! Great springs, great price and great service from AM!

          2001 Cobra

          Lowered my 01 Cobra just right. Also had my 9/10 staggered wheels put on and not a rub or grind. Perfect for any mustang owner. A must buy to get that aggressive look. I debated on if I really needed to lower it. No regrets here. Thanks AM!!

          1999 Cobra

          The springs felt great on the car but lowered the rear more than the front it appeared. I removed the isolators in the front and it sits perfect, the front slightly lower or equal with the back. Thats just my taste but awesome handling improvement.

          Great investment and product!

          These springs from H&R are awesome. They make the stance and handling much better then stock. Not to low, to be a nusense, but low enough to make a difference in the look from stock. The ride and cornering capabilities is noticably better as well. I would buy and recommend these again.

          2004 Cobra

          Fastest shipping ive ever experienced from ordering online. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff phone support. The original owner of my car cut the springs an made the car way to low. I ordered the H+R race springs, install was fairly simple. The ride is great, not to stiff not to soft. You can drive on the streets and not need a kidney belt but when you want performance and handling its right there, i would highly recommend these springs to anyone, best springs ive ever run. Thanks again American Muscle will be pleased to due business with you guys in the near future.

          Aggressive! Not Ghetto!

          They gave my 03 cobra a much more aggressive stance and look. Its came down just enough to keep it classy and sinister looking and stiffend up the rid a bit. noticable in turns but comfy.
