Ok I have a stupid question about springs. How do I figure out what springs I am running? I am running the same springs that came with the car i bought last year. I have what appears to be the same size on the front, and put the biggest rear spring on the rr with the smallest (or about an 1" smaller) on the lr. Do you just measure the hight to get your # value? Man I have no idea!! Thanks

no the spring height it self has nothing todo with the # of the spring. Depending on what car you are running, you will run a certain height spring in the front of car, and a certain height of spring in the rear of car! but lets say both front springs are 9 1/2" tall, you can get them same height but with diff. rates. They do make a spring rate checker, if you know any one who has one. Springs are one of the cheapest things to replace in a car especially a coil car. It might be best if you find out what height you need for your car and what rate you want and buy some new ones! I think you can get them for less than $40 a piece at most places!

You might want to call Stock Car Products before you place a web order for those springs. I ordered some last week online - they didn't ship and didn't ship - I finally called about them and turns out the cheap pricing is closeout and they were out of stock of a number of sizes - they didn't email or call - just weren't sending them. Pretty dissapointed with that being my first order from them - they also didn't have any MOOG balljoints in stock that I had ordered and didn't know when they would be in stock. I cancelled my order and went elsewhere - if they were out of stock they could have at least emailed saying so. I like the TrueCoils from www.speedwaymotors.com or you can get Afcos/Hypercoils/anything under the sun from www.laneautomotive.com - you have to call them to place an order - you can check availability and pricing online though. They are a good bunch to deal with.
