You can buy stock appearing springs in just about whatever weight you want. Most of the major race part suppliers have them. Plus if you scuff them up and let them set outside they look even more like stock....

Depending on how "good" your tech department is at your track, chooce your springs wisely.

Our rules say STOCK SPRINGS ONLY NO RACING SPRINGS, and they MEAN it. Our track will check hight diameter and the coil itself. They check the spring coil with a micrometer, and it better match from side to side.

Some purestock classes requir you to retain your sway bars also. That will make a difference in your spring selection.
