Upgrading Suspension?

Asked by Jun 03, 2015 at 01:23 PM about the 1993 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 1993 Ford Thunderbird Lx, the
stance on my car is alright where it sits, but
I want it a bit lower. I need to replace my
bushings so I thought about replacing the
entire suspension while im down there. Can
anyone recommend some sort of system
that would be great? I do ride my car pretty
hard, always doing sharp turns, and putting
her through the test. I would like to have
better handling, lower stance, plus the
strength to keep up with it.

Thanks in advance.

Use lowering springs made for your car. OR maybe adapt Mustang lowering springs? Check the diameters & higths side by side. Don't ever cut coil springs, 1 or more leaf springs can be remover or reformed by a pro spring shop. Some shops can make coils. If your budget is not a problem, install airbags. Many kits are available.

  • I am trying to diagnose a 'noise' coming from the rear of the car ('04 T-Bird) that sounds like a loose shock or spring. However, the suspension seems fine. What do you think? 1 answer

    It sounds like something loose in the trunk when I'm driving. I thought it might have been a loose shock or spring but the suspension seems to be okay.
