Hey guys I'm thinking of lowering my 03 w/ H&R(SS) springs. The question is where can I buy and install the springs and all neccesary hardware needed to do it right.(CCplates,bushings ETC.) What shops in the area do ya'll reccomend? Thanks Phil.

Phil, Houston Performance can get you the springs and there are many members in this club, including myself, who have installed springs & C/C plates. I'm sure we could get a tech day going sometime soon. You'd need some struts/shocks as well when you get the springs. Let us know, we'd be glad to help. :thumbsup:

Talk to Edmond and David. I think Edmond's regretting getting the stock '03 Bilsteins and NOT the revalved ones from MM. But you may want to talk to David and Keith about springs on '03's....always good to talk to some people who have done it before learn from THEIR mistakes. ;) :thumbsup:

not really, I am running the H&R race spring on the back of mine with the 03 bilsteins and those are a higher rate than the sports

H&R SS
Front 700-760
Back 685
H&R Race
Front 750-850
Back 770

I would say put on the springs and if you thing your shocks/struts are under dampening, then get new ones..

I got my H&R's from Houston Performance and they give a good deal on them especially with SCMC membership..

What bushing are you going to replace? [/B][/QUOTE] All if it is within a good price range. What did you pay for all of your Derlin's?

The delrin bushings are AWESOME!!!

Just be ready for some additional drive line noise, and a noticable decrease in ride quality.

Otherwise, my car feels like it is on rails now!! I am also about to do delrins on my front control arms too... then will be testing the car on track when David and I go out to TWS on March 4th to play... HEHE!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :thumbsup:

IRS
Delrin UCA/LCA parts are about $300
MM IRS k-member bushings $50
Steeda front Diff bushings $50
+ labor to remove IRS $$$


Upper control arms:$120.00
Lower control arms:$250.00
Both UCA & LCA :$300.00
Rear diff:$25.00 Delrin
Front diff:$70.00 Aluminum (I would get the Steeda ones)

Special package deal all bushings:$350.00

All prices include UPS shipping to the 48 States.I will make all bushings to order,and I will ship them out 7-10 days after payment is sent via paypal to stangcobra93@comcast.net

thank you
Nick
