    Will the ride height be lower than stock fox springs? Will handling be improved? It'd be great if my car felt a little stiffer in the turns. My car is a '93 LX vert with a MM rollcage. I'm running the eibach drag launch kit w/ airbags which was installed by the previous owner, it does help with traction but is way too soft for me. I'm hoping '03 Cobra springs will offer an improvement worthy of the install effort.

    I don't know of it would be lower. The cobra springs are 600 lbs linear rate. You can cut a half coil or so off and see if you like that.

    You can only use the front springs though as the rear is IRS.

    Not sure how they compare to Terminator springs (IIRC the front rates are the same), but I have Mach 1's on my vert. It did not drop things hardly at all vs the stock springs.

    I'd rather have progressive rate springs......
