Jack21 - As mentioned previously, you seem to have tremendous knowledge of front suspensions and I need to ask you a question. A couple of years ago, I bought a Backdraft Cobra born in 2007 with a 351W engine with less than 10k miles. The front suspension is a coil-over adjustable strut system but it is a very stiff front ride. The struts appear to be good - no leaks - and the front springs are ten-coil springs. I assume the previous owner had it set up for racing, which is the reason for the stiff ride, but I want to drive and enjoy the comfort of the ride. Any recommendations on how to soften up the front end suspension? I know Eibach offers 225 and 250 lb seven-coil springs but don’t know if this will necessarily accomplish the desired feel. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
