Anyone have pics of H&R SS *FOX* springs on an EDGE? Can it be done?

Does anyone know if I can use H&R SuperSport FOX springs on a 99-04 Edge? I know they fit, but they have different part numbers. Does anyone have pics of how it sits?

I have an '01 Cobra Vert with H&R SS springs on it. Because the car is a vert and due to the rear being an IRS, the rear springs are different PNs - hence the package has a seperate PN. But as far as I know the front spring is the same accross the board. In any event, on my car with stock rubber isolators the front sits too low. Not from a geometry perspective per se, but from a pratical standpoint - the K-member hits high spots in the road (high spot defined as surface repairs; ridges caused by heavy trucks; tall manhole covers, etc.). This is more than annoying and so far I've not sustained any damage aside from a badly scraped k. However, one has to be constently vigilent, especially in the dark as stuff comes up pretty quick. I had a rock about the size of a softball become lodged under the car as well as some odd-shaped tree branches. I think if it were me, I'd rethink using the super sports. Here is a side pick:

Well a Edge is a fox(sn-95= fox4) so they may work. I mean if the fox4 stuff goes on a fox, it should go the other way.

It's da Jax!

gtracer, your comment might be the reason why I might just settle for the pro kit.

Edge is based off the fox chassis? Wow, I'd no idea. Guess you learn something new every day.

The SS springs drop the car a lot. I'd make sure that is what you want before you do it. Otherwise you might be better off with the HR Sports or Eibach Pro-Kits, if you are looking for a little drop. Maximum Motorsports makes some street springs as well. You may check into those and give them a call, they are really helpful.

Awesome! So the I Mean Think About It logic prevails, and I can put '65 springs in an '09 because, you know, think about it, they're both Mustangs.

I have fox SS springs on my Cobra. The front measures 26.75" from the ground to the top of the fender arch with a 275-35-18 tire.
