I don't have any good answers for you, but before you choose a spring, I suggest that you find out what changing the spring on any corner of the car will do. I have a file that charts all of the common problems in chassis setup and most of the solutions. It is small, but I can't post it because it's in table form. Anyone who would like me to send this to you as an attachment please e-mail me at

I ran stock springs on the back of my 76 Monte Carlo and it worked great on a slick track but not on a tacky one bad shoving problem on tacky but the track was allways slick in the feature so it worked out ok

Yakeservice, Man I've had the same problem your having with the springs cause noone sells 15" pigtail racing springs. so what I done was took the rear springs out of a 77 monte carlo and used them and I'm still using them. They work great.
