Coil Spring Sag

Hey guys, just curious what your thoughts are on coil spring spacers to boost the saggy rear end my car is developing? Any comments welcome. Thanks

Re: Coil Spring Sag

better off replacing springs and shocks... if you want to lift rear some and stiffen a lil, get some wagon springs for the car with f-150 shocks... the springs will raise the rear of the car some and the f-150 shocks are so that the shocks arent always over extending.. did this on a 1989 Crown Victoria and plan to do same on a car now

Re: Coil Spring Sag

I just put new shocks at all 4 corners less than 1000 miles ago...the rears are definitely not something I wish to do again any time in the near future. Don't have the $ to shell out for new springs, so I was looking at the spacers as a temp. fix. I was mainly looking at the type that just screw in between the coils.

Re: Coil Spring Sag

Spring spacers fall out and severely decrease wheel travel while shock absorbers, even those designed for an F-150 (???), will not affect ride height. "Wagon springs" are not made for your car. Check for higher rate springs from an HPP or P 71 CV, or GM. The HPP cars will, most likely, be air spring equipped.

Re: Coil Spring Sag

Wait until you can find a pair in the boneyard, they shouldn't wear out and will be as good as new. As a rule or thumb, used prices run about half of new.

Re: Coil Spring Sag

For about $100 you can go to Summit and get air bags to help out the rear springs.
