Hey Bullittheads, when replacing your front springs, is it desirable or necessary to replace/reuse the rubber sleeve on the bottom spring coil? Has anyone left it out without any problems, or does it need to be in there? Increased noise without it?

I just want to get all the info I can, before I do my springs...

Thanks!

Sorry, I haven't changed springs yet, but I would love to see a pic of the drop and how low (1inch, more or less) the springs said they would lower the vehicle. If you could message me or post the pic, that would be awesome. Thanks.

My Eibachs from Sam Strano came with a new sleeve. The front dropped almost 2" & the back 1.5".

Most springs should come with the sleeve. If you don't use one they may make noises. My Steeda Ultralites came with the sleeves.

It doesnt need to be there but it will make noise if its not. I have done this on my 88 mustang. This will also lower the car alittle bit more too. The noise I had on my 88 wasnt that bad I could live with it.

Thanks for the heads up, I didn't realize they were private. 0457 is pretty dirty in these, but you can see how she looks lowered with wheelspacers (5/8" ft & 1" rear)
