Which springs do yo reccommend to match with Pro Shocks SM400 Shocks? I'm updating my mustang II front end on a 1932 Ford Pickup. The front end is light, but has a very rough ride. The engine is a 350 Chevy S/B and a 350 turbo transmission. I've purchased standard Mustang II upper and lower control arms from Speedway, but need guidance on the shocks, especially the springs. What spring rate and length would you recommend (would I have to cut the springs myself)....

In regular coil springs figuring a 32 pickup with V8 and automatic you are probably in the 2600-2800 pound range overall weight which depends on full fendered, all steel, etc. In that case for a better ride you should be able to drop down to a 325 spring rate. The springs will need to be cut to necessary length going ¼ to 1/3 of a coil at a time and leave them just a little long to account for spring settle. Lower control arms need to be parallel to the ground at ride height.

Hi, I'm interested to buy a pair of shocks but I would like to know the maximum exterior diameter of those shocks because in my mounting system, they need to drop into a tube for the mount. Thanks for all, Math,

Mustang II Bolt-On Coil-Over Kit w/ Carrera Shocks
(Part #2559000)
                        

These kits provide the highest quality performance characteristics for your Mustang II front end. The unique "half barrel" shape springs are designed specifically for use with the Carrera coil-over shocks and the factory upper spring pocket. This enables the use of a longer spring, which allows for a lighter overall spring rate. By building the upper section of the spring to factory dimensions, this puts the weight back into the frame instead of on a single stud. 

  • For stock-to-2" lowered cars (no less)
  • Fixed, non-adjustable valving 
  • Developed for high performance with increased travel
  • Fully adjustable ride height using included aluminum spanner nut
  • Easy bolt-in installation
  • Unique spring fits the stock upper seat in the frame
  • Includes 2 chrome body shocks, mounting kit, 2 chrome-plated springs (choose specific rate)

NOTE: Not recommended for front axle weights in excess of 1900 lbs.
