My son had these on his '86 and the rear sat high. It just didn't look good. I'm going to try them on my '94 hoping that the added weight between cars helps them lower the car. Anyone else use them here? Are you having to use lower arms with adjustable spring perches? I could always ask Team Z if a coil could be cut out.

Team Z said not to cut their drag springs. I'll be trying the Fox Team Z units on my heavier SN as the Fox springs and SN springs have different part numbers. I'm hoping the Fox units are a softer rate. I'll post my findings.

I did and I just put them on the car. The car doesn't sit as low as H&R Race springs. One more inch lower would be nice but it really doesn't look bad. I'll post a pic once it's off the jack stands. I'm curious what the measurement is from ground to center of wheel opening on a stock '94-'95 is.

I can measure mine but it will be slightly higher due to the fact most of the top end is off the car

I wouldn't think that would effect the rear height. If you wouldn't mind; I'd appreciate it.

Rear fender height at tallest point. 28.5" on a 225/55r16 tire. Stock SN95 GT springs.

With a 26.4" tall tire and Team Z Fox Body rear drag springs; the car sits at 28". This is measured from the same spot as yours. It looks like the Team Z Fox springs lower a SN around 1".

My car I think sits perfect with teamZ fox coil using there small supplied spacer are you guys purchasing them new or used maybe there miss labeled 275/60/15 tire
I run 26" Mickeys which don't fill the wheel wells like your 28's do. It's really noticeable with the 26's. That being said; my car settled another 1/4" and I'm happy. I don't use any spacers or isolators. Springs are new Fox Team Z units used on my '94 SN. The SN Team Z coils make the car look like a 4x4.

What does your car weigh?
I've never weighed it but it has full power and leather. The pics are with trunk carpeting, spare tire, jack and lug wrench removed.
