I have an 89, silver, 17in Bullet wheels backed with 45mm H&R wheel spacers. Just bought bilsteins for it and Im lowering it tomorrow. Running a 2 chamber Flowmaster, but I need to do the shorty headers and dual exhaust. I will have pics up after tomorrow.

Quite simple, really. It's been done many, many times, and it's basically a bolt-in operation.

Re: HO motor swap in a Crown Vic

Suspension is gonna be great! going from a rate of 386lbs/in to 600lbs/in hopefully the bilsteins I have will dampen accordingly, if not I will have them revalved to match the spring rate. The lowering should be about 1.5-2.0 inches from factory. I pulled one corner this evening and did the testing!! More info to come!
