Springs

I have a 96 T-Bird with Xenon ground effects so I don't want to lower it since it is my daily driver. I am looking for new Springs with the same ride height.

My car squeaks every time I launch and I think the springs are just going bad. I already replaced the shocks in the rear and added a bigger rear sway bar and I have the front sway bar waiting to be installed.

Are there any good brands for Springs that won't lower the car? If so, were would I get a good deal on them? - Thanks

Current rides: 09 CTS-V (went to dark side) & GSXR-1000

Sounds like a good deal, but I really wanted them new. My car only has 60k on her so I don't want to put older springs on her. I appreciate the offer though.

Have you called Dan Newman for new springs?
I recently bought a '96 door handle from him after seeing posts here saying Ford had discontinued them. Dan made some calls and found me a door handle.
Call Dan to check availability & price.
Still, the least expensive way is to pick-up a set from a TCCoA member like Jim (a.k.a. Embalmer).
Search the For Sale forum for "Sport Springs".
