on my wife's '93 i added coil helpers to the rear to help with the sagging problem. i mounted a pipe between the lower control arms to act as a "axle housing" for the bottom of the spring to rest on, the top of the spring rests up against the body and just fits with the suspention at full drop. sure it rides a little stiff and you feel speedbumps now, but my headlights arent pointing at treetops at night and the trailer hitch doesnt drag now, has that nice musclecar rake, i even mounted a old 8.8 cover that i painted with chrome spray to make it look like a rwd from behind. ive even been asked when was the taurus ever a rwd or is it a awd version.

heres a pic of the taurus with my box trailer, has a good 100 pound toungue weight to it and with the suspention upgrade, i only dropped about a inch when i sat the trailer on the ball. i dont tow with the car, but wanted a hitch on it so if the ranger were to die and the trailer needed moved id have a backup plan.

:frown2:.. not only is that not very safe, but your rear alignment is WAY off.. I would just pay the 60 bux for quick struts in the rear and call it a day. that way you know its done RIGHT adn safe..

I do not recommend towing with any FWD vehicle after personal experiences towing a pop up camper with a Taurus wagon. A gusty cross wind can put you out of control.

If you must tow, keep your speed down around 55 !
