    New member...new ride - Page 2 Empty Finally cut front springs

    Post  blacknred79 Tue Aug 01, 2023 10:31 pm

    Finally got the front springs back out and cut 3/4" off the overall height to drop it down 1 1/2".........came out pretty close to that anyway. I measured the gap between the top of the tire and the bottom edge of the wheel well and it's now the same front to back like I was aiming for.

    Now I can finally move forward with getting the front end aligned before I chew these tires up any more. It looks so much better now..........hated the way these "stock" Moog springs made it sit like a truck!

    At first I was afraid I didn't cut enough off of the springs and that I'd be stuck living it with it not being just right. Now I'm pretty sure it's just right!

    Took a short trip Sunday afternoon with the wife to get some coffee and relax down at the river for a bit......felt good to get some miles on the car finally!
