Does anyone know of web sites for springs for a 1981 mustang. I want to remove the stock front and rear springs but can't seem to locate any web sites. The current front springs are 5" x 15" and have not removed the rear springs yet to get the size. The only site that I have come up with so far is Speedway Motors but they didn't have the right size for the front of the car. They had the 5"x15" but they were only for the rear. Can rear springs be put on the front? Any help guys would be good.

I've had the same promlem, we run an 89 t-bird purestock and can't find springs to fit it. We can't run any spacers though.
