I'm looking for real life experiences,please. I already replaced my rear springs with no apparent change in stance. My front springs of unknown origin are getting soft. I want to know how much to cut to maintain stock height with "new" stock 5.0 front springs.

Well, I've had two different sets of 5.0 front springs in my '90 Mustang. First set I cut a coil and a half off of (if I remember correctly) and they lowered the front of the car a little bit, but not excessively, and they worked pretty nice. Totally stock 5.0 front springs raise the car almost 2" (and that's without the spring isolators because I couldn't fit them in there!).

Hope that helps.
