front coil spring swap

Recommended Posts

I have the rear strut/spring swap done, over 10,000 miles on it.. Even after cutting some coils off the back the car still sits 3" higher in the back then front, and the front springs are to soft. I read of some suggestions on other springs that might work ford tempo, etc.... But other members have mentioned the ford tempo springs were to small. I dont want to waste $$ and buy springs that I cant use. Anyone have a front coil spring swap that works?

The back has different suspension than the front. 

 

In the back, the wheel doesn't change chamber when it rotates up and down, its on a simple trailing arm. Lifting the front on springs only will change the geometry of the front suspension and you'll have horrible front chamber, not to mention you'll have about an inch or two of down travel which is hard on your struts. A proper lift will bring the top of the struts in towards the center of the car to offset the geometry change.
