Lowering the TC

Hi again. I'm trying to find some lowering springs for my 88 TC. It seems everywhere that I look might have them for the 88, but then it says 83-87 or 83-86. It skips 88 then goes to 90's. Or, if I do find 88's, it says 8cyl only. I couldn't really find anywhere in the links or anything, so I'd appreciate it if someone could give me a website. I'm looking to maybe drop it 1.5" in the rear and maybe 1" or maybe none in the front. But, what all will I need? Springs, shocks...? I'm really new at this, so if you all would bear with me. =)

Also, has anyone used one of those Superchips? I saw a link for them on a website and it said get 255-300 hp out of your 2.3...Is this something you'd put on a rebuilt engine and not something with 130k miles? Thanks alot everyone!

First, I've heard nothing but negative responses about the Superchip for our cars. Something about causing, or leading to malfunction in the IRCM I believe...

And if somewhere says the springs will work for ANY 2.3L Thunderbird Turbocoupe it should work fine for ALL TCs. The later models are a little heavier so the drop might be a little more, but it should work out fine. But if you are gion to be driving the car regualarly, Just be conservative with how low you go.

About the superchip, see the last comment in this thread: [Image: biggrin.gif]

Then do a search on superchip for more info.

The do a search on lowering or lowering springs
