Reply To: 2020 Transit Connect to Get New Set Of 40mm Rear Lowering Springs


I just couldn’t get it into my head because I’m not good with numbers. But first of all, I learn that when an items such as these coil springs say 40mm this means they are 40mm less long or tall than the stock coil springs. I was under the impression that 40mm was the end result after installing, because when we installed the lowering springs we ended up with you guess it 40mm. Also, PSR-Parts actually contacted me yesterday saying they haven’t discontinued offering the coil springs on their site.. The main reasons they contacted me was that they saw the video for the first time. I told them that the rear coil springs lowered the van more than the front. Now the van sits lower in the back. But installing a set of 20mm lowering springs on the front would be too much. The good news, is that the PSR-Parts spokesperson said they cam manufacture a custom set of 10mm lowering springs for the front of the van and may even start offering coil springs in a set based on our findings. Again we’re dealing with 19” wheels and 245/40 tires so having to lower and fit the wheel wells around these wheel/tires has been difficult.
