FRPP C Springs? 2003 Mustang GT

Will the springs be sufficent with stock shocks? Or will i have to upgrade shocks! I just need to get the 4x4 look off my damn car lol!
Also can someone write me a How to do for these. Or at least point me to a website that has installation instructions. My buddy has a spring compressor so im not worried about that!

If your shocks and struts are still ok i say go for it, they are not too stiff, but they do need at least a working shock

When you get the $ upgrade to at least some Tokico sports struts and shocks.

I've still got the stockers on mine too. The "C" springs give a great drop, without going so low you have to get C/C plates or worry about clearances on rough roads, etc. My drop looks pretty much identical to CarGuy1985's. (My back end might be a little higher -- it has a nice rake to it.) It took about 2 weeks for the springs to settle in.


Edit: got before and after pics.

yes gives car nice angle to it, and if you go with some big meaty tires the view from behind will be even better..... =)

FRPP "C" Springs

Can anyone with them on their 99-04 GTtell me how the ride compares to stock springs? I like the way they look (not too low) and the price seems good. I just dont want the bad case of buyers remorse I got from my BBK U/D Pulleys again.

ride wise? not bad at all. they are a linear rate spring, so you will feel bumps more than you did before. that being said i think it's a good thing. the handling is SO much more responsive and the car is incredibly predictable with linear rate springs. i also have bilstein HD shocks and struts, and a really good alignment as well.

I've had the C's for about four years now. They're paired with KYB AGX schocks and c/c plates. Car feels very planted all the way around.
