    Now I love my Mustang which is a 2.3 litre ecoboost but the ride is too hard and I want to buy softer springs. Has I anyone done this who could direct me to a supplier?

    If not, I have found a company who will make them bespoke, but they need a sample of a front and rear springs to measure so as they can make a softer version.

    Is there anyone out there who has lowered their pony and still has the stock springs, and are willing to lend them to me for a short while.

    PS
    I am in the UK

    Hmm, most modify the suspension to make it stiffer however lots have done it so hopefully there'll be plenty loose springs out there...

    Yes I know but going on a few trips lately it felt like I was been shaken
    Yes, but going on a few long trips lately it really was not a pleasant ride,especially my other half was not impressed. So I want to make it ride like my Mondeo.

    Yeah I have one of each too and the Mondeo is like a magic carpet ride by comparison :)
    I just got to accepting the firmer ride as the trade-off for better handling.

    Maybe look at something like a set of Pedders which will give full adjustability so you could go softer but still maintain control through the shock settings. Try @djone101 for advice.

    That’s great, Of course I would not expect you too. You would be doing me a big favour. I will let you know if I need them. Many thanks for the offer. Will get back to you soon.

    Can you reply privately and give me your number?

    I know you just said you needed them measured but do they not need to be EB springs rather than GT?

    Yea just realised that, they will have to be EB ones as I am sure they would be different due to the weight increase of the beautiful V8.

    Hats off to Hinch though for offering to help me out.

    Noted about the dampers but I thought I would progressively go with the coils first. The company I have in mind though only charge £250 for the set to be made. Very cost effective.
    But to get them made they will need a front and rear EB spring for comparison to make softer ones.
