Houston Mk 2 stock springs

Howdy!

Any of my local folks lower their Mk. 2 and keep the stock rear springs? Pretty sure mine are shot.

Any suggestions on a great AND appropriately priced mechanic on the north side? Montgomery county would be great.

You sure it's your springs shot and not the struts/shocks?

He was mentioning 1.5" lower on the left than right in this thread:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/b...woes-help.html

Looks like the springs really do need replacement just from that info..

Hahaha. Yeah fair enough. I've just never seen sorings go bad bad. Sag a bit maybe. But not go out completely.

Sounds like he broke the left one, wonder if it's originally a northern car.
