1968 Mustang Springs
How does your car behave under heavy breaking and during corner entry? Does it list to one side or bob forward and back? If so, it might be time for a new set of springs. The selection of 1968 Mustang springs from CJ Pony Parts come in a variety of rates for applications ranging from six-cylinder cars all the way to all-out track weapons. Unlike the coil springs on the front of your car, the 1968 Mustang’s rear springs are a leaf spring design, and we carry a full selection of replacement rear springs as well. Pick out a complete set of front and rear springs to give your car the firm, responsive ride it should have.
Ensure a Firm RideThe experts at CJ Pony Parts have selected a variety of street and performance-oriented springs that will fit great on your car using the factory mounting points. While the different spring rates available might be attributed to one car or another as a means of categorization, it is often possible to mix and match different 1968 Mustang springs to achieve the handling characteristics you want.
If you’re considering replacing your factory springs, 300lb. coil springs are a great place to start. They’ll offer similar characteristics to factory 1968 Mustang springs, but these springs are coated with corrosion-resistant black protectant to ensure years of reliable performance.
If you have a six-cylinder car that you want to keep factory accurate, take a look at our six-cylinder-specific coil springs. The lighter weight of the 250 inline-six allows the car to run lighter springs up front, and these are exactly like the springs that would have been equipped as original equipment.
If it’s performance you’re looking for, stepping up to a higher spring rate will deliver more composure in corners and under braking. The Scott Drake line of progressive springs makes a great selection because they offer a compromise between supple ride quality and communicative firmness. These springs increase their rate as the spring is loaded, which means that they won’t behave like sports car springs until you load them up under cornering or breaking.
Don’t Forget About Your Rear SpringsIf you’re planning on trimming your front coil springs to lower the front of your car, you’ll want to take a look at the lowering leaf springs we offer from Total Control.
If you’re going to be performing your spring upgrade yourself, CJ Pony Parts stocks multiple spring compressors. These special tools allow you to safely and easily remove your existing coil springs from their perches — without one, spring removal can be very difficult. We strongly recommend that you pick up a spring compressor if you’ll be removing your 1968 Mustang’s springs on your own.
