Take the advice of both of these guys and don't do it - http://www.300cforums.com/forums/529362-post19.html.Hi I'm new to this forum and have a 06, 300 limited. I ran across a 300 on the road that was dropped about 1 1/2". He said he cut the springs! I know this is questionable for lowering, but has anyone else done this and what if any problems were incountered.
Anytime you lower a vehicle you are changing the geometry of the suspension.I just got done building a 07 Eleanor mustang and want to start on my 300. I used eibach pro kit on my mustang and installed camber adj. bolts. Do I need something like this for the 300?
yes they will wear out other suspension components faster. eibach or any other "lowering spring" would be a much better choice because of the spring rates involved versus just cutting a stock spring. first off emergency handeling will drastically drop from stock when cutting stock springs (something i would not want on my daughters car) and the choice of an official lowering or sport spring can only help. basically any time you lower a car it is smart to go ahead and get the proper lowering equipment, cutting the stock springs is never the way. i know people cut the aftermarket springs a little bit, but they have tolerances that can hold up much better and not lose their main purpose; to perform. and yes all the same effects are brought by both parties, however cutting stockers will speed up the process ten fold.You guys are saying cutting springs will ruin other things?? And mess up alignment? We'll don't you think. Putting eibach or what ever lowering springs will be the same? You would need to do an alignment any ways right? Your shock will wear faster right? All the same effects? Or no?
Yes sir we do. The 2981 will have you riding low and slow and the EP7727 Camber link bushes will provide one degree of adjustment.justice, do you guys offer a setup that will lower it even more, possibly slightly tuck rear and keep front tire about a finger gap between tire and guard? also, do you guys offer a good camber adjustment kit? thanks in advance!
