    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Vogtland Sport spring kit, fitting all convertible '94 to '04 GTs and '94 to '98 Cobras. I'll top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know up front here gets a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The Vogtland Sport spring kit I have with me today will be for any '94 to '04 GT or '94 to '98 Cobra owner, looking to lower the center of gravity for a better handling and suspension performance, but also a very aggressive ride stance and a more muscle car-looking appearance. So the first thing I want to touch on right off the bat is how low exactly is it going to drop your car when adding a Vogtland spring kit? Well, it comes in at 1.6 inches for the front and 1.6 inches for the rear. Not the biggest drop in the world, but it is a little bit bigger than some of the other options out there. One of the other benefits is going to be the progressive spring rate. The progressive spring rate allows it to be a lot more street-friendly, while also being acceptable for the strip. If you're not too familiar with what progressive exactly means, well progressive means the springs will react very normally under normal driving conditions, giving you a comfortable ride height, while also reacting very differently in hard cornering situations or hard driving situations. Now, on the other hand, it's going to be the standard, which some of the other options on the site will offer. The standard spring rate is linear, allowing the driver to accurately predict or more accurately predict how the springs will react to each situation, because it will always stay the same. If you want to pick the Vogtland spring kit up for yourself, you can pay just north of the $200 mark. Not the biggest expense in the world. But of course, in my personal opinion, one of the better ride heights. Now, shifting gears over to the install process of the video. Now, like I said in the beginning, not the hardest job in the world. But it does require a little bit more know-how. Now, you can get the job done in about two hours or so. It does get a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and as far as tools you want to have a simple ratchet and socket set on deck, as well as a prybar to get out those old springs that might be rusted in there. Of course, a jack and jack stands, or a lift if you have one available. So kicking off this process, I've found that one of the easiest ways could be just jacking up the rear end and removing one of those wheels. Once it's up in the air, you're going to have to put a jack under the differential pumpkin or differential housing, and jack that up to relieve the tension off of the bottom shock bolts. Remove those bottom shock bolts, and then of course slowly, and I mean ever so slowly, lower down that differential in order to relieve the pressure off the spring. You don't want to do it too quick, because the spring might just shoot out of there, and of course that can be extremely dangerous. So once you lower it down and you remove that factory spring, which might take a prybar if it is rusted in there, you can swap it out with the Vogtland spring. Once the Vogtland is into place, redo that process in the opposite order and you're good to go for the rears. Now, the front process is extremely similar. It only has one extra step in the process. Now, what you're going to do is jack up the front of your car, remove one of the wheels, of course, and instead of supporting a differential pumpkin, you're going to support the lower control arm. Now, once that lower control arm is supported and jacked up in the air, you're going to remove the sway bar end link bolt, and then of course the bottom bolts on the strut tower. Once those bolts are out of place, you can slowly, and again slowly, lower that lower control arm down to relieve the tension off the front spring. Remove that front spring. Swap it out for the Vogtland spring, and swap everything back in, in the reverse order. Repeat the process for the other side of the vehicle, and you're good to go. Overall, about two hours' worth of time in the driveway at home and a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a convertible '94 to '04 GT or a '94 to '98 Cobra, you might be looking to pick up a set of lowering springs to give you a very, very aggressive muscle car stance, while lowering the center of gravity to improve the handling and suspension performance. If that sounds like your case and you want a progressive spring rate, you might want to check out the Vogtland Sport spring kit available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Performance Handling. Installing a set of Vogtland Progressive Rate Springs will lower your SN95 or New Edge convertible Mustang's center of gravity, which will reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in the corners, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking. Vogtland Sport Springs are ideal for daily driving, street, and even occasional track use.

    Lowered Muscle Car Stance. Not only does a set of Vogtland Sport Springs improve the handling performance of your Mustang, but they also improve its overall appearance. By lowering the ride height approximately 1.6" in the front and rear, that huge tire to fender gap is eliminated, providing your Mustang with a classic muscular stance.

    Superior Construction. Vogtland Lower Springs are made to strict standards in Germany. Using a cold coiling process these Springs are manufactured from special oil tempered, high tensile strength spring steels, including chromesilicon (CrSi) and chrome-silicon-vanadium (CrSiV) alloys. After being coiled, all springs are tempered, shot peened and preset to ensure consistent ride height and quality. In the last step of the manufacturing process the springs are phosphate and powder coated for superior long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Clears Stock and Aftermarket Wheels & Tires. These lowering springs were engineered to be compatible with your 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. This set of four Vogtland Sport Lowering Springs are specifically designed for use on 1994 to 2004 convertible GT's and 1994-1998 convertible SVT Cobra models. Does not fit 1999-2004 IRS-equipped SVT Cobras. Does not fit coupe models.

    What is the drop if isolators are used?

    BlackStallion

    • The isolators will add, at the most, a quarter of an inch to the drop. However, it is generally less since they are compressed when under load.

      VincentV

    Do you really need the isolators ?

    zk

    • It is best recommended to upgrade and replace the spring isolators when adding lowering springs to your Mustang. The original ones may be worn and may not benefit the newer spring rates your vehicle will be riding at. Replacing with some upgraded isolators will be a bit more durable and protect the finish while absorbing some additional impact the vehicle will experience.

    Will an alignment be needed after installing these? If so is it absolutely necessary for new cast and camber plates, I see you mention it will help get a perfect alignment. Thanks.

    RobertW

    • Hey Robert, When changing your suspension you should definitely get an alignment after installation and the addition of caster camber plates will help fine tune that alignment for a perfect ride

    Are Caster Camber Plates required in order to have the car in alignment?

    AaronCook

    • It is a good idea to get caster camber plates whenever you lower the car. They will help get the car back to a perfect alignment.

      nice drop in height and smoother ride

      Installed these along with the Koni struts and shocks. Together made for a much improved ride over stock. Dropped the ride about an inch and a half as advertised. Decided not to do the install with the spring isolators in the front but used the supplied isolator in the rear. This made for a very nice stanced look. Took a while to install just because there was 14 years of grime and rust to work through on our 2004 GT convertible.

      Perfect for 17 inch whees

      It was one of the easiest things to install. The fronts were the easiest for me took like 30 minutes each side. Just get a body and make sure you have all the sockets/ wrenches needed and get it done. Fitment was perfect, came with 2 isolators. Couldn't be any happier with these springs.

      4x4 No More!

      I ordered these Vogtland springs for my 02 convertible GT. As usual, they arrived within a few days from American Muscle. The box was beat-up pretty bad but the springs were fine. I installed these in about 6 hours in my driveway using jack stands and a pry-bar. It took about 2 weeks to get the full drop with new isolators installed. I was able to get about 1.75" drop out of the rear and 1.5" drop in the front. The ride is comparable to stock, but it definitely tightened up in cornering. No more 4x4 look, I now have a nice, low mustang to cruise in. Definitely give Vogtland a try, you will not be disappointed.

      Smooth Ride

      The Voghtland lowering springs were perfect for my '98 GT Convertible! After receiving the lowering kit the installation was a snap for my 80 year old friend and myself(I am 72). Using a drive on lift, we did the entire job in 3 1/2 hours including installing new 18" Saleen combo wheels. The performance is superb and the stance is perfect. Lowered the front 2 full inches and the rear 1 1/2 inches. The ride is great and the wheel/fender gap is gone. Could not be more pleased!

      Great buy

      These lowering springs gave my mustang the perfect drop it desperately needed. Goodbye 4x4 look. Ride quality was surprisingly decent especially since i have stock shocks and struts still. That said, i am still planning on getting bilsteins to soften the ride. Decided to install them without isolators to give it that little extra drop. I would most definitely recommend these lowering springs.

      Great stance w/daily driver manners

      These springs need a little more love!! For me, they are a perfect compromise all the way around. My car is a weekend cruiser. I wanted springs that were mild mannered for cruising around, but also had firm progressive handling when pushed., And obviously give me that mean stance. These are it... 1.6" drop is perfect for me. Not too low, but still gives that awesome sports car stance. I used all isolators(SR performance) top and bottom, front and rear. ~1.4" drop right off the jack stands! I expect a little more when they settle in. Currently running stock shocks and struts. I believe the ride is close to stock. But I also have new low profile 18" staggered wheels/tires in the equation. Wide Low profile tires can effect ride quality too. Understanding all that, I think the ride quality is totally acceptable. Some install instructions talk about just lowering the axle by supporting the differential plate and unbolting the shocks and quad shocks and lowering the axle. I still had to pry bar out the springs which is fine, but the vogtlands with isos don't just "drop in". I recommend removing rear sway bar and bracing and dropping the lower control arm. I found that much easier. Why there are not more reviews/pics of these springs is strange. These are fricken awesome! Absolutely recommended. Mineral grey GT pic posted.

      Let a Pro Do the Cobra Fronts!

      The rear spring install (my first time), with poor jacks and basic tools, was manageable. The first side took 2 hours, the second side less than an hour. Very glad I did not attempt the fronts in my garage! The factory-trained Cobra-tech who did the job (600 hours/2 full months at Ford corporate for training in the mid-90s so his dealership could sell SVT at the time), spent a solid four hours on this job! He said the stock springs were among the most difficult he's ever pulled out. The initial lowering on the rears was 1"; on the fronts, about 1.5". I am very pleased with the firmed up ride, and pleasantly surprised that it's less harsh than expected. I believe these springs provide the perfect balance for improved handling in a daily driver. The 'squat and dive' are virtually gone from the car. I would gladly buy this springs again.

      A Handling Mustang?

      Installed these along with Koni Str T's. What a change!! Car handles so much better as would expect, what I noticed most however is the way it accelerates is different. Feels much stonger. Funny how a difference in transfer of weight can change how something feels. Ride is a bit more firm, no big deal, going over speed bumps now is a bit more challenging. Had springs professionally installed. A good purchase.
