Does anyone know how many pound springs come stock on a 1986 Monte Carlo LS TH200 with Air Conditioning. Would like to know how many lbs all 4 are.

i have a 1986 buick regal and i run lf 1000 lr 250 rf 1200 rr225. to be honest i havent ran this car but i think 1200 is too much but i'm gonna try it. think on the metric cars it might be better to try lf 900 rf 1000.

Ok, when I get new springs I have read about them being a different height than the stock springs, what height replacement springs to I need?? I cant use any kind of spacers etc... everything has to be stock appearing.
THANKS
