I want to raise the car 1/2-3/4" is there a past article or new thoughts?
We need to know more about your suspension.
Stock springs? lowering springs? Isolaters in or out?
Welcome to the insanity.
You can probably get 1/2" using this method: http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?57914-How-to-Raise-the-rear-of-your-Mustang!
stock car with a broken front spring
the hose is a good idea but not for me
Leaving the broken spring in there shouldn't be an option either.
You can probably find a used pair of stock springs for cheap if not free.
Where do you live?
I'd start by replacing the broken springs
Yeah, just get new stock springs for like $25. If that's still not high enough, get coilovers.
Pretty sure my coil overs even all the way up were not as high as stock.
Can we see a pic of how your car sits?
He just needs like a 14-16" spring lol
Lol, o jeez
You cant really gain any height using a coilover on our mustangs since the upper perch for the coil spring is mounted to the top of the strut. The strut will max out before you really are able to gain any height.
Is there a reason why you want to raise the car more then it is? These things look like trucks from the factory. I can't imagine going higher unless your going mudding.
I travel the coast of Maine 150 miles a wack and pot holes and frost heaves rule.
I have a doner car for a stock v6 spring- I was wondering if a v8 car had taller or stronger springs?
the comment about the strut limiting has me wondering about other options?
or after market.
I need a little more ground clearance
the factory GT spring is a little firmer than the v6, so if you have a gt, the stock v6 spring would make it drop slightly. Like, so slight you probably wouldn't be able to tell. However, a slightly softer spring is worlds ahead of a broken spring.
