View Full Version : New Springs

S/C Cobra
10-03-2002, 11:20 PM
Well I finally broke down and bought some springs for the Cobra.

The kit lowers the car 1 1/2 inches all the way around and will hopefully look really good.

With the addition of the new Bilstein™ monotube Shocks and Struts the ride feel should be nice.

I am posting this at 10:15 Thursday evening while taking a break after barely getting the 2nd rear spring out. This install is quite the PITA with the glorious IRS but I hope to finished with the front by mid day tomorrow and have it aligned so I can come out and play this weekend.

With this set up and once my FR 500 brace comes in with Polyurethane Bushings I hope to say goodbye to the dreaded wheel hop forever.

Well back to work

Best Regards:

Sweet, can't wait to see it Lamar. Post pics if you can. Can't wait to see what she does at HRP with the "no wheel hop". Should give an '03 a run for the money. ;)

Hey Lamar, the front is a piece of cake compared to the back!:D i had to use aspring compressor on the rear. It a was pain. You'll love the end result though. Worth the work. Take a beer break!
