What size fron coils do you guys run on your 70-81 Camaros or Firebirds? Is it 5.5 X 9.5? Do any of you run the 8 in. tall ones?

WITHOUT SPACERS I USE 11 SPRINGS. HYPERCOIL SS SPRINGS. 9.5 ARE NOT TALL ENOUGH WITHOUT SPACERS THE CAR WILL SET ALL THE WAY ON THE CONTROL ARM AND YOU WILL STILL HAVE PLAY IN THE SPRING. BUT SPACERS WILL FIX THIS. ON THE LEFT I USE A STOCK FIREBIRD 400 ENGINE SPRING WITH 1.5 ROUNDS CUT OUT. THESE THINGS ARE 18" LONG STOCK BUT CUT DOWN WILL WORK.
