I think I am going to put all new springs on my stock car this off season.
I am curious what size springs are used?
The front currently appear to be the 5-1/2 x 9-1/2 and rears 5 x 10.
Looking at various suppliers there seems to be many different lengths.

Id probably stay at the sizes your at just change the spring weights, im no coil spring expert by no means I run an amish suspension but the fronts are what I run in my car with the jackers. Eddie

Hey there the important thing is find out what your frame heights are like infront of the rear tires and right behind the front tires. We run a for torino so your car might be different but these were my frame heights and it made the car handle real well. LF-6 1/2 LR 7 1/2 RF 7 RR 7 1/2 to 8 If you get a spring that is too short or you need to lift the car a little simply cut out some centers of like water pump pulleys and tach them on the springs it works real well. Good luck Steve Dupree
