EL Springs

Hello,

I have an EL sedan, and I am looking for some raised height springs. I have seen some cars around with around 3 or 4 inches extra. Doers anyone know where I can find some ? I tried some that were only an inch, but they have sagged to normal height in a few years.

Thanks Weazle

Re: EL Springs

I can get several Brands of spring to Raise a falcon,
Dunno about 4 inches, (it'd be close)
but 3 inches would be no problem.

Re: EL Springs

Hello,
Where from ? I can only find a bit over an inch, more means custom made springs. Not cheap. The front end and wheel offset is different to the RTV ute, which I had thought about for parts. I want clearance and suspension travel.

Thanks Weazle

Re: EL Springs

I have a mail order Auto Parts business.
They need high springs for limos, etc, so they dont get hung up all the time.
I get them from a trade Spring Manufacturer and supplier.
I suppose your local suspension shop could get them also.

Cheers
Tony
