hey everyone. I was reading that using the stock v8 rear springs and the front springs from a 4 cylinder would be better for launching than lowering springs and they would also lowering the 99-04 about an inch. My question is could I get any auto part store replacement front springs that are the 4 bangers or should I try and find oem ford ones. also I did look on napa and I found two different front springs.

NAPA AUTO PARTS
and
NAPA AUTO PARTS'
The first link is also the same springs they recommend for the 99-04 gt springs?

Any parts store will have them, sadly they are built for the 5.0 anyways. ford ones will have the specs you want. And actually if You arnt in a rush when snow melts, i can dig into my 88 lx 4 cyl and tear the struts off, as i will be replacing them with drag suspension.

Also if I use the 4 cylinder springs up front what would lower my car the same amount in back? I've seen people say the stock rears and cut one coil off. Would this give it a nicer stance?
