Will 03' - 04' Cobra spings fit are car's??

I don't know a lot about Cobra parts so I did not know if it's worth picking up a set of 10k mile 03-04 Cobra springs, I also did not know if I did get them if they would fit my 97 Sport???

mustangs didn't have independent suspension except for the 03-04 cobras. i don't know as much about, well, anything car related as matt here does, but i would think that the 03-04 cobra setup would be the closest thing to our cars. but IIRC from my reading here the setup is just different enough not to work on an mn-12

Mustangs have struts in front (two bolts at the bottom is the giveaway), camber plates, and totally different sized stuff.

I remember reading about a site who custom makes springs to match your factroy code.

At this point my JJJJ's feel good but are near 240k miles

I doubt the height and springrate would match the MN-12 platform.

While the diameter of the bottom of the springs are the same, the IRS Cobra springs are smaller at the top. Not to mention that the overall length and springs rates probably aren't the same either.

98 Toreador Red Mark VIII LSC - 13.221 @ 104.91
95 Pearl White Thunderbird SC 5spd - 12.879 @ 106.66
