Hmm, I wish I could put a lift on mine! I like to go down jeep trails when my GPS tells me to. (It usually doesn't tell me until it's too late to turn back.)

I have not seen a kit that can do it, I would be interested to see. If it is for the wagon it will not fit.

what is needed to lower a 2nd gen taurus.
You need the Intrax or B&G springs we sell Monroe or Koni struts and mounts. If you want go lower, you need coilovers.

I got about three inches of drop out in my 90. Doing the strut tab mod in conjunction with the lowering springs I bought back in the day from canuck motorsport. Definitely made the stance nicer, but it really sucks smashing the subframe off of speedbumps if you approach to quickly before realizing you need to slow down.

You pull out the pinch bolt and slide the strut up or down in the knuckle and clamp back together. That is the strut tab mod.

If you drop 3" you may face other problems especially with saggy springs.

It is a simple procedure. The front only has about of 1" of drop though.

With the age of the car it would be better to replace the springs as the springs sag a bit.
