  1. want to get new springs....wondering what the pros and cons are to the FMS c springs and b springs and how much each lowers car...

    i plan on switching to 03 cobra wheels in the future
     
  2. I have the C springs on my 4cyl car and I like them but it didnt drop very far. They were stiff as all hell for the first month I had them on there but they feel pretty good now. They will probably drop a little more on a V8 car but I wouldnt expect much more than an inch or so. My notch dropped probably 1" in back and 1/2" in front. They are real easy to install since they are shorter than the stock ones but I bet the B springs would require a compressor since they are variable rate.
     
  3. I have B springs on mine. Lowered it just right IMO. Ride is fine, but I don't drive the car much.
     
  4. Just had B springs put on mine this past weekend. Looks great. Looks like it dropped just over an inch. I'll post some pics later. Can't go wrong with the B springs.


    DemonGT, my older brother lives in Sparta, WI. Must be a small world. I'll post up some pics once I get the Stang cleaned.
     
  5. FMS C springs all the way...

    Here is mine with the C springs with 1 coil cut off the rear springs.

  6. I also have c springs, you get about 1" drop they are a little stiff, you want more drop go with eibach pro-kit you get about 1 1/2" drop good ride, and if you want that slam look go with the sportline kit 2" just stiff as hell!
     
  7. I got C Springs, and I'm very please with them... only drawback I've had was the rears rubbing my quads/sometimes tha tails (275s) but I added a 1/4" spacer and I haven't had a problem since... The fronts (245s) rub on the inner fender well like right in the front if I go over a big bump or something, just contacts the plastic fender well part, so no big deal... I'm very pleased with them.

  8. Here's a picture of mine with the c spring, the front lowered close to an inch and maybe a 1/2 to 3/4 of inch in the back.

  10. nice car lol
     
  11. what if you have lift bars in the rear... which spirngs would you get? (lakewood liftbars)
     
  12. seems like i might like the B springs...but i like both...but i dont want it to low..dont want to buy camber plates ect...seems like the c springs are the most popular...havnt seen meny pics of cars with the b springs

    how hard is it to install springs in front? can it be done easyly with spring compressors??
