Hi, I'm running a 72 Buick Skylark I got in an engine trade. The front springs have been changed out. Can you tell me what size springs this car uses. 5 or 5 1/2. Also, I can run racing springs, should I get "stock" race replacements or go with race springs. Any help appreciated!

Not quite sure of the spring diameter for that chasis. I run 80's metrics. They are 5 1/2, might be the same. I would sure run racing springs if you can. Maybe start with lf=1000, rf=1100.

Measure the ones that are in the car now, and use the racing springs, they are better for "racing"

Hey raceinmud i cant believe you would run a buick skylark for a bomber. Do you have anything left off of it that you would want to get ride of? I drive one as my hot rod and am looking for some replacement parts. Like grille, and any trim pieces. I would pay any shipping. just dont tell me that you busted it all up. That stuff is worth a lot of money. i would appreciate it.
