What are you all running as far as ride heights on an 88 monte SS. Also how tall of a spring are you using? thanks

I am having the same questions myself.

Thinking about the Tru-Coil Stock Replacement 5.5" x 12" on the front in 1000 and 1250. And the Tru-Coil Stock Replacement Rear 7" x 14" with pigtails on both ends. All from Speedway Motors! Not sure how the heights differ from stock and how it will effect things.

I wouldnt run the springs from speedway i tried them they made the car sit up to high in the rear. i bought mine from afco with pigtails on the bottem 11 inch car sets perfect. on the front i run 11 inch also with atleast 1 inch rubber spacer on top of the rf spring...hope this helps

Hmmmm???

Forgot to mention my minimum weight is 3500lbs after race. Springs must remain stock appearing, so must have pigtails on top and bottom.

This is something that saves alot of money and works well for me, I run a 85' monte. I use a 900 lb. right ft., 650 lb. left ft., 175 lb. left rear and a 125 lb. right rear. I use a ft. sway bar thats found on a diesel monte, and the rear I used a stock v-8 monte. The springs can be found in the following: right ft. 80' olds delta 88 w/ diesel. The left ft. was found on a 70'-77' V-8 monte. The left rear was found on a 78'-79' V-6 monte. The right rear was found on 84' V-6 Camero or a 80' Dodge Omni. Take the ft. stock junk yard springs and cut them to 13". Like I said this works very well for my 85' monte, may give you some place to start. Good luck to you....
