I want to install Mopar Stage 1 springs on the rear myself.

I don't have any air tools, wondering if I should attempt it anyway?

Anyone have a procedure I could follow? Another question, I am sure I could figure it out once I see the old ones but which springs are the front and which are the back, and I assume they go letters up when installing? I know stupid questions [:o]... but hey have to learn somehow.

There should be some videos on youtube to help you out.. You will be able to tell which are the fronts and rears once you take the rears out. Letters up so you can read them from the side. You will not need air tools. I did the springs on my '13 Mustang with hand tools.

Alright they are in! I didn't see much difference in the front at all! The back did come down, but I also did the heater hose trick. I didn't have any power tools, and it took me all damn. I am getting to old for this crap...lol. I felt it the next day. Waiting on my 305/35r20 Firehawk Indy 500's. Have the replica 10.5x20 wheels in the garage. IMG-20190921-WA0002~2.jpg

Mopar springs don't lower the front much more the rear. It looks great!

This was my car with Mopar lowering springs, the rears had a half coil cut off.

I like the Lil Devil fender flares, but I cant justify the cost, but they look good!

Also, I'm on air now but I did my lowering spring install with hand tools, it really wasn't too bad, the only pain was the lower control arm bolt on the rear with the exhaust in the way.
