So I just installed full length stock 4 cyl. coils and it sits lower than with my lowering springs and transfers weight much better then the cut ones did...

Ok I don't mean to revive my dead thread but I am still trying to figure things out and so far haven't gotten any solid answers.

I just picked up some 4cyl fox springs off a buddy who got them from a junkyard and decided to go a different route.


1. What should I use in the rears to pair these with?

2. Will they lower my car at all in uncut form? Compared to how I sit stock?

3. Should I or should I not be using fox shocks/struts?

4. Instead of using old fox springs...should I just get eibach drag launch springs for fox bodies? Since I am assuming it might lower my car a bit which is what I want. I know using the ones intended for the new edge won't lower my car at all.


If anyone can help shed some light, it would be greatly appreciated,


Brandon
