How'd you get such a low drop with P springs?
Nothing fancy, installed with no other adjustments. I do have -1.5 degrees front camber which makes the front end look lower. Before anyone asks, I monitor tire wear very closely and mine are perfect. I also rotate often.
I've seen dozens of cars on Ford P springs, and you're lower than them by a solid inch or inch and a quarter.
You must have cut a coil or maybe you meant sPortlines, LOL...
Grimace427, your car sits perfect BTW. My Sportlines are okay in the rear but I'm cutting a half coil up front this weekend.
Haha thanks! No cut springs, not confused with any other springs unless Latemodel Restoration put 'K' springs in a 'P' springs box!

This was actually the first of TWO car washes this year 2012, thank you very much!
The photo was taken late January after installing the new tires. My hands were sh-sh-shakin!
Tbird raises a good idea tho. Get the sportlines or similar springs and cut half coil. Actually that sounds like a very attractive idea at this point. Beats mixmatching sets, paying for coilovers, or using spacers.
I will have to strongly object to cutting springs, especially on the Sportlines. This is what was found when testing the Sportlines by two different people;
"Eibach Sportline (pn 4.10135) 1.6/2.0 - tested, lost data but these spring rates are extremely high and are IMO unsafe due to almost zero rear travel before going solid and into snap oversteer, these are poser springs"
Oh yes, old indeed. So having bigger tires in the rear, what does that do to you gearing wise? As opposed to the stock tire diameter that is I'm assuming??
You will gain gear ratio(lower numerical) when going with taller tires. I did this because my 3.73 gears were limiting me in the top end.
