So i have steeda springs on my car which were only rated to lower the car 1.25in(i didnt no that when i bought them). so i got some used H&R front springs which are suppose 2 lower it 1.7in. I put one the HR on the passesnger side and let it down n im like WTH...i dont see a difference. sat the other HR by the steeda and they are the same height other than the steeda having less coils than the HR.

If it was right after you put them on, it does take a little time for them to settle completely....at least mine did and I think most peoples.
do they have to settle again or something? they came off another mustang.

I have heard someone heat them up and it dropped

:dunno
yea heating springs lowers ur car 2 but wouldnt you think that it would mess with the spring rate.

they're called progressive rate springs. they take time to adjust the ride height. were did you buy them from?
i bought them from a member off here.

they might have reverted back to original height when he took them off. like i said progressive springs take some time to lower all the way. give it a week or so before you take them off.
well no point in taking thing off if they dont lower it since its kinda the same height as the steedas. im getting upr coil overs for my rear for drag racing purposes and ill just sell all 4 steedas

It depends how long they'd been off the other car. If they were off the car for a while then they probably stretched back out and it'll take a while for them to settle back down on your car.

Horrible idea. Heating/cooling metal will affect the properties of the spring, not to mention the strength.

That's not what progressive means... Progressive means that the spring rate changes as the spring compresses. The theory is they are softer when you're just driving on the street and not compressing the spring as much, but when you start cornering or launching hard, they become stiffer.

Lemme know if you want to sell the Steedas. Are they the sport springs?

I'd put money on letting them settle. I cut my stock springs (3/4 of a coil) and it took them a week or so to settle, when they were only off the car/uncompressed for an hour at most. I think they have to settle in the perches.

Go drive over some train tracks :lol

Are you sure they are H&R SS or are they H&R race springs? The race springs arent going to be any lower than the Steedas...If they are the SS springs, they should settle in and be what you are looking for.
