    I bought a 94 cobra. the previous owner bought Eibach Springs to lower the car 1 inch. he installed the front but not the rear. I recently installed the rear with new shocks, new upper and lower control arms with urethane bushings. With the car on the ground the rear is still higher than the front. the springs did not change the height.:confused:

    Any suggestions ????:(

    It does take a few days for new springs to settle.
    Were the isolators installed on the front springs?
    Did you install the isolators on the rear springs?

    Most mustang springs naturally general a certain amount of rake (one end being higher than the other, usually rear is taller). How much higher is the rear over front? Pictures?

    i did install the insulators but they are not very thick. The car is an inch taller in the back.
    i have put at least 100 miles on the new suspension. i was told by some that because i tightened the suspension when it was hanging that i should loosen all the bolts, raise the suspension and retighten. any thoughts.
    i don't have any pics at this time.

    Try rotating the springs.

    If no change, just get some new springs.
