Hey guys

Trying to get the kids car back in action and need a set of v8 fox rear springs. Had some locally but dude disappeared another had some, waited and turned out to be 4cyl rears

Anyways Can't find any at the junkyards and asking here if anyone has a set there willing to let go

Thanks

Unless you luck up, finding factory ones is getting harder to do. Aftermarket replacements are available, just be sure to pay attention to what you're ordering.

Since I like to try different ride heights (and suspension angles) on my car, I didn't want to be cutting up new springs. After some trimming, I found SN V6 rear springs to be acceptable. They aren't variable rate like Fox V8 springs, but seem to provide a decent balance when compared to the 4 cylinder springs.

Quick Google search turned up this https://www.stockwiseauto.com/moog-cc835-coil-spring-set?gclid=Cj0KEQiAk5zEBRD9lfno2dek0tsBEiQAWVKyuODwA2t9SOJaEgXcaruQus0F9QifF8VPNcHoyucUmCEaAlUJ8P8HAQ&fit_id=6202&Year=1988&Make=Ford&Model=Mustang&

That's probably not too much more than it would cost me to ship a pair...

Believe it or not, the AutoZone website has pretty good info and selection on rear coil springs. Have a look.

here.. lists all the different trim levels, spring compressed/uncompressed heights, weights, etc. even has options for fixed or variable rate.

only thing that site is good for, IMO
