Suspension problem
1997 Ford Thunderbird V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 168030 miles

This t-bird has a racing suspension, but when the shocks and struts needed replacing, they were replaced with sensa-trac. When the customer took the car back because the shocks are worn out again, the shop told her it was the coil springs.I can't find anything wrong with the springs. Am I looking/checking something wrong?

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

The coil springs control the ride hight the shockers control the feel and suspension re bound rate, you can check spring heights, normally it takes years to get any sag in springs, I would be looking at the shockers for your rear end suspension issues.
