    Got my new Ford Racing C springs installed yesterday and they are unbelievable. I must say I was thinking it wouldn't make much of a diference, but man it was like night and day. First off, the 4x4 look is gone and it looks a hell of a lot better and 2nd, the handling is 10 times better.

    Did you cut the dead coil on the rear springs? I did on mine and it helped lower it a little, didn't change the spring rate as far as i can tell. Right now they are on my fox though and they look sick. I'll post a pic of it in another thread sometime soon. As far as on the sn95's, i didn't like the ride quality after i put mine on so I took them off. Looking to try progressive rate springs next.

    Hey guys...Well, first off, no I didn't cut the rear springs at all, but as far as ride quality I thought they were a great improvement. I don't think they're more comfortable than stock, but it's not much of a difference and man, it corners like it's on rails....I love em. I will be taking some pics soon, next couple of days, and I'll put up a before and after of them.

    I h ear people getting the C springs, but never the B?

    I got the B springs, lowers the car substantially, its a progressive spring....lowered the front about 1.5 after settiling, and about a inch in the back after settling....i might cut off a coil on the back to lower the back a little more....Im running these springs with KYB Struts/Shocks, might try bilsteins, but idk if itll make a difference...the car handles much b etter now, body roll is reduced substantially, but i still think it can corner better.....idk if bilstiens might change the handling at all...

    You are actually supposed to cut the rear coil on the c springs, not sure about the b's though. A portion of the spring is dead coil so that you can have an improved ride and still run slicks.

    I actually don't like my c springs though. Too harsh of a ride for the small amount of drop I got. I'm going to try eibach's since I've heard all kinds of good stuff about them.
