hi @ all!

this is my very first post here. i've got a 1970mach1, 351w with a couple of mods, so the engine has about 320-340hp.
i want to install a set of new spring leafs, but i don't know, which ones to choose.

the ride has to be lowered about 1 to 1,5 inches. i want to have a nice firm ride with it. it's mostly for curvy roads here in germany, but no racetracks or dragracing.

what would you suggest me? at dallasmustangs, i've found several leafs with different rates (global west). at mustangsplus, they sell different types of grab-a-track.

thanx for suggestions!!!


btw.: here's my car:

I use 69Boss springs in my 65Mustang from Eaton Detroit Spring. They make a good quality spring, no one size fits all. The BOSS springs have the highest spring rate of all the cars FORD produced I think it was 155lbs/in

I purchased all my springs from ESPO springs. Great prices and very helpful in regard to application.

Don't have their contact info, but check for the link on Woody's Fairlane site

ESPO carries a full-line of springs both front and rear and a complete line of suspension parts.

They are a class outift and very customer oriented.

Here is their # 1-800-903-9019

I would use them again
