sport springs vs. regular stock springs???

This might be a stupid question, but are the springs on the sport model bird at all lower than the regular lx model's springs?

I have a 97 Cougar Sport, and I can put my entire head between the top of the tire and the wheel well opening. I am going to have to say that the Sport is no lower than a non sport.

they seem to be a hair taller than the LX springs.

I agree, my car sat almost an inch higher with Sport/SC springs.

I put brand new rear sport springs in, and the height was the same.

The spring is made out of a thicker stock, and they are shorter in free length than the stock spring.
