Ride Height

Gday everyone. Just wandering if anybody knows what the standard ride height for the 69 mustang is. Would 2.5" lowered leafs be to much?

Re: Ride Height

I've been unable to find the factory ride heights,but it varies with the different models & engine/drivetrain combo's.
The 2.5" drop would depend on the present stance of the car & the rake your looking for.As long as you don't have tyre rub........how low do you want to go?
Do you intend dropping the front as well?How does it sit now?

Thumbs up Re: Ride Height

Its actually my father who owns the 69 fastback muzzy. Its a factory 351windsor 9" FMX. It sits perfect at the moment but the rear leafs are sagged and almost straight so he is looking into some new ones. The fella told him that these are 4leaf extra thick with reverse eye which will drop the car 2.5". He said with 14" rims dropped 2.5" you can fit about 1 to 1.5 fingers in the gap between tyre and gaurd so he ordered them. Hopefully they will be fine. Thanks for the reply mate. Ceya.

Re: Ride Height

here is one as is. it sits fine but with a small load in boot or when hitting bumps it is on the bump stops.http://www.fordforums.com/attachment...id=30962&stc=1 I must admit it is a sweet ride. I'm very proud of my father. It doesn't look all that tuff but hes done a really good job. My parents did everything from motor gearbox, mirror conversion, paint and panel, wiring. It was quite a feat and took him about 4-5 years. They told him at the last mustang nationals which he didn't even want to be judged in he could take home gold concours if he trailered it and done a few small things. He drove it 900km to this event to. He got marked down for a few bugs in radiator and clutter in boot. He got a trophy but can't remeber what for.

Re: Ride Height

Yep........you should be proud of your Dad........that's a fine looking car!!
Those reverse eye springs will probably bring the ride height back to about where she sit's now,with no bottoming out.
Good Luck.
Greg
